Plan the space
Avoid mid-move arguments about where the furniture is or isn’t going to go (these usually happen while holding said piece of heavy furniture, which doesn’t help) with these two important words: plan and measure. Know the length of the walls, the dimensions of the furniture, the size of the doorways—measure it all. Then, work out a configuration that you both like and, most importantly, make sure everything fits. Knowing exactly where each piece of furniture is going to go, big or small, will alleviate a great deal of stress on moving day. Trust me.
