Moving into a new home can be an exciting yet stressful experience. Spending days on end, boxing up personal belongings. Every day it happens until your home looks like a warehouse. Until finally, you wake up on the day you’re ready to move into your new home. Then, it’s a day (or two) of lifting furniture and boxes onto a vehicle. But it can also be a humorous experience when moving into Charleston houses.
7 Funny Real-Life Scenarios When Moving into Charleston Houses
Let’s face it. Moving an entire house is anything but easy. However, many of us have “grand” ideas about making the move less stressful. Some will plan to do everything smooth and perfect. Others try to wait until the day of the move before they start packing and loading.
Unfortunately, everything doesn’t always go to plan in life. So, you need to be prepared first to keep from wringing your hair out. This starts with facing some truths about the move. Charleston Home Team Real Estate took a little time to compile this list of hilarious mess about how we’ll truly feel. Here are 7 funny myths and truths that happen when moving into Charleston houses.
Myth #1: You’re move will be completely structured. Everything will go to plan to prevent having a hard experience.
The Truth to This Myth: Expect plenty of emotions to erupt throughout the entire move. The reason why? It’s because nothing goes right when moving into Charleston houses. You’ve broke your favorite dishes. A leg was broken off from the dinner table. Heavy rain pours down from the sky as you heave items onto the back of the truck. Just prepare for the worst.
Myth #2: You plan on getting rid of old stuff before moving into a home. Anything that doesn’t hold value or doesn’t get used much must go.
The Truth to This Myth: Don’t always count on getting rid of everything. There will forever be space for your childhood blanket or teddy bear. You can’t bear to part ways with your old baseball mitt. You’ll come to realize that you’re not giving away that little black dress you never wear. Chances are, you’ll end up packing these items with the rest of your belongings.
Myth #3: You’ll pack in advance before moving day. This way will allow you to properly label and pack everything.
The Truth to This Myth: Somehow, there will be something that will distract you from packing up. There are dozens of errands that needs to be made. Boxes end up being labelled “Fragile” and “Dresser Stuff.” You run out of boxes, so you smash stuff in garbage bags or anything that has handles. Even wall pictures will be tossed into vehicles with reckless abandon.
Myth #4: All your family and friends will help you move. Plus, your new neighbors will of course help you out if they see you need help.
The Truth to This Myth: No one will come to help you when moving day arrives. All your friends are suddenly too busy, sick, or out-of-town. Your neighbors will stare at you through windows the whole time. And even while you struggle mighty with heavy furniture. Even the people who offer to help you will move it for a nominal fee.
Myth #5: The whole move will only take a few hours. Plus, you’ll have everything unpacked in about a week or two. This way, everything will be sorted out beforehand.
The Truth to This Myth: You’ll slowly realize you didn’t know had so much stuff. The truck you’ve rented isn’t big enough to hold everything. This means you’ll be taking more trips than planned. When you start unloading, items will be dumped in any unoccupied location. Plus, you’ll be surrounded by boxes and garbage bags for weeks on end.
Myth #6: You’ll put everything you need close by. This will help you to not search through boxes for important items.
The Truth to This Myth: You indeed put your toothbrush and other toiletry in a plastic bag. The problem is which one did you put them in. You’ll have to buy disposable plates, cups, and forks.
This will be due forgetting where you put the “Fragile” box that held your dishes. Which is okay because you won’t also remember which box (or bag) had easy-to-eat food you set aside earlier. Pizza deliver, anyone?
Myth #7: You and your spouse are planning on celebrating in style after everything is moved in.
The Truth to This Myth: Chances are, you’ve already had beer or some wine earlier in the day around 11:37am. There will be too many boxes laying around to feel truly celebratory. Then, you’ll end up drained, tired, and too exhausted from the move by nightfall.
