Although moving a house can be exciting, it is often a stressful process where there’s a lot to consider to make sure you have an easier time of it. By preparing for your new home during the months before you’re due to move, the big day will go a lot smoother. You’ll have ample opportunity to pay any outstanding bills, organize new utilities, and make sure your belongings are suitably prepared for moving.
Transfer Your Utilities
Long before the moving day, and preferably as soon as you know where and when you’re going to be moving, you should call your utility providers to let them know you’re relocating. Many utility companies won’t be able to visit your new home on the same day to make the switch, potentially leaving you with a confusing situation regarding any outstanding bills. With some services, you can also make the switch online. By managing your utilities ahead, you’ll be able to transfer things like your Internet, electricity, gas and water to the new home on the day you move.
Stock Up On Quality Packing Supplies
Don’t trust your valuable items with cheap packing supplies from anywhere. Flimsy boxes can collapse, cheap tape can rip open on the bottom, or not buying enough packing supplies can have your items crash into each other. We offer high-quality packing supplies that can save you time and money.
Organize Transport and Storage
Professional moving services make moves a lot easier on you and your family. While some prefer to move themselves, not having to worry about the logistics a move brings can save a lot of time and confusion. It also means the drive is much easier and more comfortable. Many people have hesitations about driving their own moving truck, or would prefer to not have to drive surrounded by boxes and boxes stuffed in their car.
Pack and Manage Your Inventory
One of the most common frustrations among those who are moving house is that, once they’ve moved, they spend days or even weeks trying to find everything. After all, unmarked boxes are not much fun to unpack, particularly since you’ll likely need to prioritize things during the first few days in your own home. To avoid this hassle, we recommend you take as much time to label and manage everything before a move. If you would rather things be sorted for you, you could have your items packed and labeled by us, allowing you extra time to prepare for the move and make a smooth transition to your new home.
