In order to do things as quickly and efficiently as possible you will want to know what you are doing. The best way to do this is with a plan. If you were to jump into preparing for your move without a plan you would spend a lot of time in between tasks deciding on what to do. Not only that, you will also be doing things slowly, working them out as you go along. WIth a plan you can prepare what you want to do, when you do it and how you do it. By doing this you ensure that you can do tasks as efficiently as possible right from the start and jump to your next task as soon as you are done with the previous one. There are a few reasons that time is important with a move. For one, you will have a date that you will need to be moved by and it is important that you meet this deadline. Secondly, the quicker you finish everything for your move, the sooner you can destress and relax in your new house.
Poor planning can lead to inefficiencies which cause you to expend more effort for less payout. By failing to plan you end up creating more work for yourself and doing things that don't need doing. If you are moving with other people, as is the case for a lot of people, this problem will be compounded. When you plan properly, you are able to look at and decide on what needs doing beforehand. In doing this you will make sure that everything that you are doing is something that you need to do.
Delegation of tasks
If you are moving with other people, planning becomes even more important. When working as a group it is important that everyone has an assigned role. This makes sure that everything gets done and that people aren't doubling up on work. Without a plan, working together can actually make the move harder. It is of vital importance that everyone understands which tasks have been done and which tasks haven't. Without a proper plan, you may find that something that you thought was done by someone else has not been done. This can lead to confusion as well as delays in other tasks. In the worst case, failure to plan as a group can lead to tasks being missed.
In general, planning will reduce the number of mistakes that are made during the move. This is a very broad advantage as it has a lot of overlap with other advantages. There are times where mistakes are unavoidable however, because of this it is important to avoid the ones that aren't. Mistakes could be anything, from missing a task to putting something in the wrong place. Whatever the mistake is, it will cause some amount of difficulty either during or after the move that you will not want to deal with.
