Clean House. The first rule of moving is get rid of unnecessary clutter. That way, you won't have to find a place for those rarely used items in your new home. Host a garage sale or donate goods to a local charity!
Take an Inventory. Things are so harried during a move; it's easy to lose track of the stuff that's coming and going. Protect your possessions by creating a home inventory. Take snapshots or create a written list of your belongings, and make sure your insurance covers your move
Cancel and Re-order. Don't forget to tell your utility providers (telephone, gas, electric, water, etc.) and other services that you're moving.This proper planning ensures that you won't be paying for services you're not using. Or worse yet having your lights turned out as your moving in. Call today and set this up.
Be “Mover Friendly”. If you're using a professional moving company, make yourself available to answer questions during loading and unloading.Give direction for proper placement of your furniture. Review the home inventory paperwork and make sure the driver has your contact information and details of your delivery
Be Safe. Whether you're hiring professionals or moving yourself, remove all rugs, low hanging items and tripping hazards. Keep walkways clear at all times. Arrange a baby-sitter for very young children, and make sure pets are away from loading and unloading areas.
