· Notify Post Office
Notify the post office with your change of address, so you can start receiving your mail immediately.
· Track Old and New Accounts
Make a list of your old and new accounts, such as credit cards, utilities, and bank information. Close or open accounts as needed before your move.
· Research Your Movers
Make sure to choose movers who are BBB-accredited. If you’re completing a long-distance move, ensure that they’re an agent of a larger van line.
· Pack Overnight Bag, Other Essentials
Pack everything you’ll need right away in an overnight bag or a clear bin for easy access when you reach your new home.
· Purge Unneeded Items
Have a garage sale or donate your usable but unwanted items. If you’re hiring professional movers, this will save you space, and space is money!
· Get Free Boxes
You can get free used boxes at grocery stores and restaurants. To save money on packing materials, use towels and blankets instead of packing peanuts.
· Hire Movers to Handle Fragile Items
The cost of replacing a treasured piano may outweigh the price of professional moving services.
· Defrost Refrigerator 24-48 Hours In Advance
Towel-dry and clean your refrigerator to prevent a mess on moving day!
· Document Computer Setup
Take pictures of your computer and cords and label ports in advance for easy setup on moving day.
· Pack/Unpack By Room
Label your boxes in advance and pack by room to save time on moving day.
