Moving out of your home is a stressful experience and has been ranked as the most stressful life event, above divorce, starting a new job, and the breakdown of a relationship. A recent poll found that 61% of those surveyed ranked moving house at the top of their stress list. For more people who have to move grappling with the years of accumulated stuff and having to create a new normal in a new environment are major stressors. Getting to grips with a move can be daunting and it is important that you have the right support during this time.
On average Americans tend to move about 12 times during their lives, with a third of those renting properties moving each year. Considering that there are over 300,000 individual items in most average American homes, that is a great deal of stuff to get to grips with.
