Here are some helpful tips to everyone making moving plans this year.
MAKE A LIST
It is very helpful to write yourself a to do list to refer back to. With moving, it is very important that nothing gets left behind. Make a list of all of the Utility bills that you will need to cancel. Addresses will also need to be forwarded for mail, credit cards, bank statements, etc. Even an itemized list of your inventory could come in handy when getting initial quote estimates as well as deciding what you are taking with you to your new home and what you are leaving behind.
SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF
Make Donation pickup arrangements. If you know that you are donating large items such as furniture make sure you schedule your donation pickup farther in advance.
GET STURDY, UNIFORM PACKING SUPPLIES
We all know that packing can be very tedious. If you choose to pack yourself make sure you protect your valuables so they can be safely transported without collapsing or ripping. It is better to overestimate the boxes you may need instead of underestimate so that you don’t over pack any boxes.
PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF
We recommend that you pack your essentials as well as any personal items yourself and bring them with you on person whilst traveling. Personal items being social security cards, credit cards, bank information, jewelry, heirlooms, anything of extreme value to you.
