Use our relocation checklist to help you keep your tasks prioritized and prepare you for your move:
Moving to a new home can be overwhelming and we recommend that you plan a head. The most important thing in relocation is getting organized. Well organized and smartly planed move can make your relocation experience stress-free and even exciting.
1. Reserve your moving date
Experienced and professional movers like Route 1 Movers take the stress out of moving. By assisting with everything from the reservation to heavy lifting, packing and loading to unloading and transporting your belongings. Check our reviews online, get our free in-home estimate and reserve your move date in advance. According to our relocation checklist, you should reserve your date approximately 6-4 weeks before moving day.
2. Notify the Authorities
We recommend that you start to inform institutions like child’s school and your bank, you should also notify the post office, Doctors, etc. about 6-4 weeks before you move. You should contact the utility companies (power, cables) approximately 2-3 weeks before your move date.
3. Start Packing
If you decide to use our full- packing services, you can skip to the next step. Our professional moving teams will fully pack everything, including your miscellaneous items, so you literally won’t lift a finger. But if you decide to do the packing yourself you should purchase packing materials and start packing well in advance. Start packing the non-essential items about 4-3 weeks before the move date. Pack 3-4 boxes every day and by the time your move date arrives you will be well prepared and stress free.
4. Fun family experience
Sometimes moving to a new city or town is even harder for kids. They may be changing school and losing friend. Making them a part of the process by giving them personal responsibilities, like packing their rooms, will get them excited to move. They also may have a lot of questions and concerns. Take the time to answer their questions over a family dinner and keep them in the loop.
