Tips for an Improved Moving Experience  

  • Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day.
  • Don’t try to get rid of your children’s favorite things before the move – even if it makes it easier. Sometimes children have a hard time dealing with the change of the move itself.
  • Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck
  • Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move.
  • Make a closet of things needed for last minute cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop, paper-towels, garbage bags, etc.
  • Remember to get snacks and have drinking water available for move day.
  • Schedule disconnect dates for cable, phone and utilities about a week before your move day.
  • Cancel newspapers, pest control, cleaning help, gardener about a week before the move.
  • Mail in or fill out on-line form regarding your change of address a week before your move date.
  • If you are taking the fridge, defrost it the day before your move.
  • Take time to say goodbye to friends and neighbors before your busy move day.
