Plan Your Move
Proper planning and maintaining an organized and logical to-do list is probably one of the most important things to keep in mind to help make your moving process more efficient and less stressful. If you are planning ahead, we recommend that you take the time and to your research to really understand what you need for your move.
Most families do not move that frequently. You may be moving for the first time and/or several years have passed since your last move. Here are some of the things you should be doing the 6-10 week period before your move date.
Begin contacting multiple professional moving companies to obtain moving quotes, it is important to seek licensed and insured moving companies that are able to service your particular moving needs.
As you meet with moving companies, you should take this time out to figure what household items you will want to ship to your new home. In most cases, the price of your move will have a direct correlation to the amount of items (weight or time spent packing and unpacking) that you will be moving. This is a great opportunity to take those items that you do not use regularly and throw them out or donate them to local charities.
If you have a lot of stuff to dispose of, you may decide that a garage sale would be a good option. You should try to schedule your garage sale at least 2 weeks before the actual sale date. If possible, you may want to reach out to some of your neighbors and see if they may want to sell some of their items as well, creating a bigger “neighborhood sale”.
If you are going to be doing some of the packing for your move, get the moving and packing supplies you’ll need. One of the best ways to get exactly what you want and save money in the process is by buying your moving boxes online. Moving boxes and supplies are specialized and we do not recommend utilizing used boxes or boxes that you get from local retail establishments.
You should start to plan your new home layout by thinking about what you will be using in what rooms and how you will be laying out your major pieces of furniture. You can draw up a simple floor plan that can help you get a better handle on what you should take with you and what items you may need to purchase upon your arrival.
