The decision to move anywhere comes with a range of challenges, but there are certainly challenges when it comes to moving from a traditional sized home into a manufactured or mobile home. Here are some tips to follow to make your move as easy and stress-free as possible.
The first thing you should always consider is to plan ahead. Getting things done well in advance will save you a ton of stress, as well as a ton of time.
When it comes to downsizing, space is going to be a big issue, especially in a mobile home. Prior to the move, go through each thing you own and really consider if you actually need it all. If it’s pretty likely that you won’t ever use it again and it’s just taking up space, get rid of it, whether it is through a garage sale or donation.
Measure your furniture in your current house and make sure that large items will fit into your mobile home. Monthly storage fees can get pretty expensive, so get rid of as much as you can.
Go through your closets, cabinets, drawers and other storage areas in your home and dispose of things you don’t need from there as well. If you are having trouble making the decision to get rid of something or not, ask yourself when the last time you used it was and what you used it for. This will help you decide if you actually need it.
One of the perks to doing all of this ahead of time is that you will have time to host a yard sale to make some money off of the items you are getting rid of. If a yard sale is not an option, donate your items to your local charitable causes. Many of them will come directly to your house to get the items from you at no charge.
