Preparing To Move?

If you are worried about the hassle of moving, consider this:  If you are prepared, what is left to worry about?  Here are some things that can make your big move not seem so big!


  • Before packing everything, set aside items you no longer need or use.  A garage sale can turn your unwanted items into cash in your pocket!


  • Gather your moving supplies ahead of time.  You can purchase moving supplies like packing tape, bubble wrap, and boxes.  


  • If you are NOT moving yourself, get estimates from local moving companies.


  • If you are moving yourself and don’t own a truck and trailer, moving truck rentals are available and much better suited for the job.  Call around for availability and compare rates.

  • Disassemble any furniture that can be taken apart to save space.
  • Get an “OPEN FIRST” box ready for all essentials you will need at once.
  • Make sure to clearly mark all boxes where they go and what is inside.
  • Once you’re done packing and stacking, you can start the cleaning process.
  • Verify your moving arrangements with the movers, or the rental truck company.
  • Fill out forwarding address card with your post office.
  • Call the utility companies to set up shut off dates.  Advise them to set up start dates at your new home beginning on closing day.
