Tips for Moving Day

Tips for Moving Day

Moving day is approaching, but you’re simply feeling anxious about the move itself rather than excited to fill your new home with life. We understand – we’ve been there.

There are a few key steps to take when getting ready for moving day, and getting these tasks done early on in the moving process can save you time and stress in the long run.

First, create a room system when it’s time to pack. Once you have your moving supplies, take the packing process room by room. Start with a room that houses non-essential items or that you rarely use. It’s important to sort as you pack, and decide which items you want to take with you and which to toss for later. While sorting, designate a special place to keep excess that you’ll donate, and be sure to try recycling as much as possible before throwing extra bags away.

Next, remember to change your forwarding address for all essential mail. From your bank statements and bills to important subscriptions, let your mail beat you to your next address by a few days. This will help avoid delays or late payments that happen as a result of the moving process. Also, let your extended family members know what your new address is so they can file it away for next year’s Christmas card. If you order anything new for your next home, be sure to forward those packages to your new house so you don’t have to move them immediately upon arrival. Also included in this step is setting up utility services at your new home and scheduling when to stop services when you leave your old one. It’s inconvenient to arrive at a new place and lack electricity, gas, trash or water since you’ll begin using these utilities immediately upon move-in. Scheduling an internet provider appointment a few weeks ahead of time is also smart since many companies are easily booked up during moving season and your internet access may be delayed if you’re not proactive.

Finally, find a moving company that’s right for you. The very best movers come prepared with the right materials and insurance to pack your items safely and securely in a truck that is large enough to fit everything without damaging any items. Experts will drive the truck to its new location and help you begin moving things into your new home. A savvy packer will label boxes and know which should go in which room, so all they have to do is direct movers on moving day. At American Moving, we’re here to make moving day as stress-free as possible for our neighbors in Colorado.
