Preparing for your Move

Make contacts well in advance

Reach out to moving companies and friends ahead of time! If you plan on asking friends for help, do so months in advance. Summer is peak moving season, so if you’re using a moving company, you will want to reserve your spot as soon as you can. Even if you don’t have an exact date just yet, contact companies and start getting quotes, as this will save you the headache of comparing prices and services down the line.

Have refreshments ready for everyone

Moving is hard, sweaty work, and it’s even worse in the sizzling heat. The summer of 2015 is already anticipated to be a scorcher, with more 90° days than last year. Heat stroke can be a real threat, so make sure everyone – family, friends and hired movers alike – are well hydrated and are taking breaks. If you are making back-and-forth trips, stock cooled drinks and snacks at both houses! Everyone will thank you profusely for it.

Check that utilities are set up in your new home

It can be an unpleasant surprise to arrive at your new home, only to discover that the air conditioning is broken, or the water’s been shut off. Coordinate with the previous owners to check that the appliances are functioning, and if you want them to leave the utilities on, make sure to communicate this to them. The last thing you want to worry about in the middle of your move is where the nearest appliance store is. Use our handy checklist to make sure you don’t forget any important address changes.
