Moving house is said to be one of the most stressful experiences as person can go through outside of death of a loved one and a divorce. That says something about the pressure that is innate in the process of packing up one’s life! Of course, outside of the stress of being forced to organize years’ worth of life into boxes, there is the additional physical strain of having to move all of those boxes from your house into a moving van and out into your new living accommodation once again. The sheer repetetive physicality is exhausting to even think about!
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done about the packing up aspect required in moving. The only person who can determine what items are worth keeping and which are worth binning or donating is the homeowner themselves. If you no longer use a particular dinner set, only you can know that it is acceptable to toss it out. The same can be said for furniture that you never loved but have kept because it served its purpose. Perhaps a move of house is the perfect excuse to finally get rid of it! But still, you are the only person who can know what is worth keeping and what is not.
But the physical moving of furniture and boxes full of belongings? That is something that requires no background or knowledge. That requires an energy that appreciates hard physical work, and hopefully a strong back! Also? There is absolutely no reason why the person who packed up the boxes needs to be the one who goes through the grunt work of moving said boxes from the living room floor to the truck and back out again. This is what hiring a removals company is for! Let the professionals handle the hoisting of boxes and mattresses and couches. Then you can just busy yourself organizing the new abode!
