Top 15 Reasons Moving is the Worst

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Americans move an average of 11.7 times in their lifetime. Though packing up and moving is a daunting task it’s often unavoidable and no matter how many times you’ve done it, moving just never gets any easier.

We asked our employees their top reasons why moving is the worst. Here’s what they had to say:

  1. Nothing ever fits through the door. (How did you even get this in here?)
  2. The house looked great…in the ad.
  3. You have to remember to cancel all of your utilities and start new ones. (Cue the “on hold” music.)
  4. You think you don’t have much stuff, but you’re TOTALLY WRONG. You start to consider signing yourself up for the show Hoarders to get it under control.
  5. You never have enough boxes and ask yourself every 5 minutes “where did I put the packing tape?”
  6. You have no idea how to disassemble any of your furniture.
  7. You find your old photo albums and mementos…. WHAM 5 hours later you’re reminiscing and nothing has been packed.
  8. Two words. BUBBLE WRAP. The ultimate distraction.
  9. Three boxes in and you realize how out of shape you are since the last time you moved.
  10. You have every good intention to sort and label each box. After two boxes, forks and books go together right? Next thing you know every box is labeled Miscellaneous.
  11. You realize you’re really not sure how to spell miscellaneous.
  12. Bribing your friends with pizza only works AFTER they’ve helped move everything. Once they’re full there is no motivating them.
  13. You realize you need more friends who drive trucks.
  14. If you ask your friends to help, then you’re committing yourself to help them the next time they move.
  15. It’s midnight after a long day of moving, you finally get your bed set up, but where are the sheets? Ten minutes later… Who needs sheets? ZZZZ
