Not giving yourself enough time to pack

Packing properly takes careful planning and execution. If you leave your packing for the last minute, you risk damaging your items in the last minute rush. Avoid this by planning out a packing schedule at least a month in advance.

Packing too early

On the other hand, packing your belongings too early can also have a negative impact. If all your belongings are packed while you are still residing at your current home, you will likely find yourself having unpacking boxes to look for something that you need

Not downsizing your move

When you have a lot of  belongings, choosing to pack them all can lead to some negative effects. Not only will you have to dedicate more time to packing, but your move is most likely going to cost more as a result. Because movers tend to charge by weight, failing to downsize your belongings could cost you a hefty amount if moving over longer distances.
