Reserve your move with a moving company as soon as you know for sure that you will be moving. This ensures that everything is coordinated ahead of time and will ease your stress as well!
Start to clean out areas such as garage, attic and closets. No need to pay to move something you no longer want!
Have a garage sale or donate unwanted items.
Arrange to transfer school records as well as change your address.
Notify magazines, charge accounts, clubs, insurance companies and anyone else who will need your new address after the move.
One To Two Weeks Before Your Move:
Start to make a list of all the essential items (cleaning supplies, clothing, etc.) that you will need on move day.
If you decided to pack all the boxes yourself make sure that you are labeling them as you go along. You can write the boxes designated room on the sides and top or label as fragile, etc. This will reduce stress for both you and the movers throughout the whole process.
Schedule the disconnection of your utilities – electric, water and phone. Then schedule them to be connected at your destination.
The Week Of Your Move:
Make sure your change of address forms have been mailed in or you can change it online as well.
Finish any last minute cleaning that can be done before the move.
Finish up packing of boxes before the movers arrival. If you find you are running out of time you can always call us and we can add specific packing services to your order so the movers will show up and finish what you couldn't.
Ensure that you have plans made for your pets and children for the day of the move. Also, make sure you have your transportation to your new address arranged for everyone involved with the move.
The Day Before Your Move:
Read through our “Pre-Move” E-mail to make sure everything is up to date and make sure you know the time frame as to when the movers will arrive the next day.
Make sure that you have removed all belongings and breakables from dresser drawers and pack them appropriately.
Make sure you have enough cash for the day of pick-up. Everyone always enjoys a pizza during or after the move!
Say goodbye to your neighbors and friends!
The Day Of Your Move:
Ensure there is a safe path for the movers to navigate your driveway – remove any objects, ice or snow.
Pack your suitcase with necessary items to hold you over until delivery happens – clothing, medication, etc.
Be ready when the movers arrive so you can walk them through your house and show them what exactly what is being moved and if there is anything in particular that they should be aware of.
Once the movers are done and everything is loaded onto the truck, do a final walk-through to make sure nothing was missed. This is also a chance to make sure all windows and outside doors are locked and any lights are turned off.
