Relocating to Eugene Oregon: Avoid the Stress of Moving
Relocating to Eugene Oregon or out of the area is nothing different from relocating to or from another city. If you go looking for new ideas to make a relocation easier, it’s amazing how often the words “stress” and “relocation” appears in the same paragraph.

Relocating to Eugene Oregon or out of City, the following tips applies:
Since I’m involved in moving-day drama reduction on behalf of my clients, some of the tips are those I’ve seen work wonders. The first one is something you can get started on long before any move is on the calendar:
- Stockpile cartons, bubble wrap, padding paper even those peanut-shaped plastic fillers.
- As relocation day nears, be sure to have the other basic packing materials on hand. Those disposable heavy-duty Scotch shipping tape rollers and a couple of magic markers.
- Within reason, try to sell everything you can (moving sales). Especially if you are relocating out of Eugene Oregon using professional movers. The weight that you can save can make a meaningful difference in the cost.
- Think forward; pack backward. Imagine the ideal order for unpacking (label box1, box2, etc), then line them up backward, so that the “1st” box will be first to be unloaded and easiest to spot.
- Relax for a few low-stress days as you unpack at a leisurely clip. Plan to give yourself ample time to figure out what’s really indispensable in your new environment.
And the single extra “Top Tip” that most relocation counselors agree upon.
It’s Number 6, to avoid falling into the trap of assuming that a simple Eugene-to-Eugene move doesn’t also take some degree of preparation. Above all, pack fragile items as carefully as if they were headed across the Oregon border!
