Zaarly eliminates the stress of moving

When Nancy, a Kansas City client who used a moving service on Zaarly, reviewed her moving experience, “I can’t believe it - but my move was enjoyable! It made me want to do it again.” But for most people, This is far from their own experiences.

Moving doesn’t have the best reputation. From packing everything you own into boxes to getting everything set up and organized in your new home, it causes a lot of stress. A recent study of 2000 Americans found that most people consider moving to be one of their most stressful life events - 1 in 8 people said they would rather spend a week in jail (we don’t want to know the stories that lead to that conclusion!)

Life Storage’s survey revealed that 27% of homeowners said that moving is more stressful than a job interview and 23% said it was more stressful than planning their wedding.

All that stress isn’t contained to the moving day itself, either. In the process of moving, homeowners said they expected to lose at least 3 nights of sleep and have several arguments with their partners and many, many more arguments with their children.

For most people, moving is a long and tedious process. The average homeowner reported that it took them an average of 135 days to unpack all of their items after a move and that it took an average of 75 days to pack up their old place.

The other common stress? Losing things. In the survey, homeowners reported that almost half (44%) admitted to Marie Kondo-ing their partner’s disagreeable items. “Honey I don’t know where that statue of the golden retriever playing golf went to!”--The trash. It’s in the trash.

So, why do people move if it’s so stressful? The end result is worth the process. For all of the grief, nearly every homeowner said they were glad they chose to move — they just didn’t like the actual moving part.
