While there's a lot to look forward in your new home, the moving process can be pretty overwhelming at times. Luckily, our team is here to make things as simple and stress-free as possible!
Take a look at our top tips for streamlining your moving and packing process, and give us a call if you have any more questions.
Before You Move
If you wait until the last minute to start packing, then you're going to put yourself in quite the time crunch. Plan ahead for your move, and it'll make things ten times easier!
Organize and declutter
Starting with the rooms you use the least, start going through each space one room at a time, figuring out what you can get rid of what can get packed right away.
Lighten the load
From yard sales to online marketplaces to thrift stores and more, there are plenty of ways to downsize your possessions—and it's never a bad idea to have fewer things to pack!
Change your address
It will take a few weeks for the post office to register your change of address and start forwarding your mail, so be sure to get that done well beforehand.
On Moving Day
Finally, after all of that preparation, moving day has arrived. Here's what you should do to make sure everything goes smoothly!
Keep important info
Bring a small backpack filled with important things like first aid supplies, medication, financial records, medical records, IDs, and other important documentation or high-value items.
Take an overnight bag
Whether you're using a moving truck or getting in too late to unpack everything, it's not a bad idea to bring an overnight bag with a change of clothes, chargers, and anything you might want.
Have phone numbers handy
For those who do opt for professional movers, keep the foreman's content information with you in case you need to contact your movers for any reason. It's also handy to have your Bill of Loading and shipment registration number with you.
After You Move
Take advantage of the totally empty space in the home, and clean every crack, corner, and hidden crevice before you move your stuff in.
Unpack by room
Similar to the packing process, start unpacking by working room by room, starting with the spaces you'll use the most.
Enjoy your new home
Buying a home is a big deal, and you're finally wrapping up the process. Take some time to kick back, relax, and enjoy your new place!
