The decision has been made and the date has been set. Your move is quickly approaching and you have no idea where to start packing up your home. As James Island movers, we have years of experience and have helped hundreds of families through this process. While it may seem overwhelming, taking these steps will ensure you have a smooth and successful relocation.
- Schedule Your Move-
The first step is to contact your moving company. No matter what time of the
year you are moving, it’s a good idea to get your move scheduled at least a
month in advance.
- Transfer Your
Utilities- Before you move, it’s imperative that you schedule the
cancellation of your old services and set up your new utilities. Be sure to
contact your utility provider 3-4 weeks in advance and let them know when you
will be moving out. Then, research the
utility companies in your new town and have those set up a couple days before
- Purge, Purge, Purge-
The best way to reduce the stress of moving is to reduce the amount that you
need to move. Many Americans have a large number of belongings that they do not
use or even want anymore. If you haven’t touched it in a year, chances are you
won’t miss it. Donate or toss any of those items that are just adding clutter
rather than value to your home.
- Delegate- It’s a
great idea to get your whole family involved with the moving process. Delegating
different tasks to the family is a great way to ensure that no one person is
too overwhelmed and it can be a great way to get kids involved and excited
about the move.
