The process of moving holds a completely different experience for everyone. Some have prepared weeks, maybe even months in advance, carefully jotting down every detail of their move, while others have knowingly waited until the last minute – i.e. the night before moving day to start packing and searching for moving help. This moving animal is telling of your personality and how you react to different situations. Find out which animal you most closely relate to below!
Are you super chill about the whole moving thing? Do you tend to procrastinate packing and getting ready for your move? If you’re reading this article right now when you’re supposed to be packing, your animal is a sloth. Just like the sloths in the jungle, you’re also notoriously slow when it comes to completing tasks during the moving process.

You’ll finish packing by then, right?
Now that you’ve found out your moving mood and hired Capital Movers to get the job done, that’s going to help with the whole process, right? Go ahead, take a nap. You’ve earned it.
