Planning Your Move

If you have any questions or would like more information about planning your move please Contact Me.

While buying or renting a new home can bring joy and excitement, most people can agree that moving from one home to another, especially for the first time, can be troublesome. Moving can be stressful, and you can go crazy just because you were ill-prepared. But that doesn’t need to happen! There are always certain things you can do, whether you’re self-moving or hiring a company, to avoid that new homeowner headache.

  • Planning Your Move

    Plan Ahead: Now that you’ve purchased your new home, make sure you have arrangements for your move in day at least two to three weeks in advance. As well, as time narrows down to move-in day, compile a list to keep you organized while packing. You may want to start packing items you don’t often use earlier to save time and space.

  • Hiring a mover: If you are hiring a moving company, ask friends or family for a recommendation. This may not guarantee you’ll feel similar as your family or friends about a certain company, but hearing positive news about a company is a start. Researching various companies is vital. Spending some time doing research can avoid scams, overspending and wasting time. The internet is a great tool, but there are some things to look out for:

  • Be doubtful of companies that offer prices that are much lower than others. This doesn’t always mean you’ll be receiving the greatest deal. A valid company should offer you an estimate, not an upfront price. A quote or an estimate should be given after a mover has inspected your home and possessions, not over the phone or internet. Check to see if you have insurance coverage in case of accidents. Also, ask the company if they offer liability coverage.

  • Self- Moving: Moving by yourself can save you money, but may take a lot more time and effort. Be certain that you’re able to take the time off from work and that you’re in suitable condition to lift heavy items for a day. Acquire the assistance of friends and family, and don’t forget to reward them with pizza and cold drinks.

  • Notify everyone: Unless you’re trying to hide from outside society, make sure you notify everyone that you’re moving. This includes work, utility companies, businesses, postal services, banks, clubs, your children(s)’s school etc.

  • Keep organized: First of all, ensure you have enough boxes to package all your possessions. When packing a particular room, keep all those materials together. Properly label each box by using colored tape and permanent marker to make sure the labels are easily identifiable.

  • Important items: When moving, don’t leave any valuables and important personal documents buried down in a box on a truck. Personally take them with you. As well, carry items such as a set a clothes, medicines and toiletries on hand for the first night so you avoid searching for them when you’re tired and weak.

Having a successful and a relatively smooth moving experience isn’t difficult to achieve. The night before, make sure you’re relaxed and ready to go. Get a good night’s sleep – you don’t want to be cranky and tired on one of the busiest days of your life. And most importantly, be positive, and don’t worry, your new home will be worth every drop of sweat. If you have any questions let us know and we will be happy to help.
