While you prepare for your move date and are putting together the final details such as selecting a moving company, what you plan to bring with you to the new location, and all other miscellaneous tasks like establishing new utility accounts and closing your current ones, here are some recommendations to help you get started during the preparation stage.

  • Create a list - Put together a simple list of the things that you know need to get done. This could include the home utilities and services that you want to transfer to your new home.
  • Use those resources to find help - If you need boxes, check with your local stores to see what is available before considering purchasing boxes. If you need help hauling off junk and large items that you know you will not be moving, locate a junk clean up specialist in your area to help.
  • Do the travel research - Planning for the actual travel during your move is especially important if you are doing a interstate move, international move, or move to Alaska or move from Alaska.

Crossing your T's and Dotting your I's in The Move Planning Process

Moving day is just around the corner and you and the family are excited to move, but still have some last minute questions or concerns? Hopefully by now you have been able to complete all of the things on your to do list, but if not, consider asking friends and family for help. Most people are willing to lend a hand.

Last minute considerations:

  • Follow up with the movers - Take the time to do a quick follow up with the moving company either by email or phone, whichever is convenient for you. Confirm the move date and time with them, and cover any last minute details.
  • Keep handy phone numbers nearby - If you write out, or type into your mobile phone, a list of important phone numbers that you might need, such as doctor, veterinarian, school, work, family and friends, you will be much more at ease than if you go scrambling looking for your address book if you have already packed it away.

On Moving Day

The day has come to begin the move. Your moving company will do everything that they can do make your move successful and a good experience for you and your family. Not to say "kick back and relax", but you can further enjoy the moving process as you consider with your family the future and changes in your life that are to come. Don't hesitate to bring up questions and concerns with the movers and your representative as they are ready to serve you.
