Moving day can be overwhelming and we recommend that you plan a head. The most important thing in relocation is getting organized prior to move day. Use our ultimate moving timeline to keep your tasks prioritized and help you prepare for your move. Well organized and smartly planed move can make your relocation experience stress-free and even exciting. Selecting the right moving company for your move is key to a stress-free move.
Select The Right Moving Company
Selecting the right moving company is key to a successful move. You should start shopping for movers 3-4 weeks before your move. Do your market research and read the reviews about every moving company you select. Reading what other customers are saying about their moving experience with this moving company will assist your decision making and put you in ease. There are many reputable moving companies, like Route 1 Movers, but there are also bad apples in this industry and you should be aware.
Reserve Your Moving Date
Once you have selected a moving company you should reserve your move day in advance. There are days in the month that are more in-demand than other dates. Most leases end by mid or end-month and these dates are usually fully-booked first. Some moves will require an in-home estimate for most accuracy. If you know when you need to move don’t wait for the last minute to reserve that day. Route 1 Movers offers free in-home estimates. Call to schedule your free visual estimate today.
Notify The Authorities
You should notify the authorities that you are moving about 3-4 weeks before you move. Here are some examples for the institutions to inform: child’s school, your bank, post office, doctors, etc. You should contact the utility companies (power, water, cables) approximately 2-3 weeks before your move date.
Have you decided to use Route 1 Movers full- packing services? Then you can skip to the next step. Our professional moving teams will fully pack your entire shipment, including your miscellaneous items, so you literally won’t lift a finger.
If you decide to pack by yourself you should purchase packing materials and start packing well in advance. Start packing the non-essential items about 3-4 weeks before your move date. Pack 3-4 boxes every day and by the time your move date arrives you should be well prepared and stress free. Do not pack any valuables (jewelry, money, important documents, passport, etc.) into boxes. Keep all your valuables close to you on the day of your move.
Fun Family Experience
Kids can have hard time moving. They may be changing school and finding new friends. 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.
