Tips For Planning Your Move

Moving can be one of the most stressful experiences that we go through. The idea of packing up and moving to another place, even if it is just down the street can be a nerve-wracking experience. If the move is across town, state or country, it can be even more stressful. If you have children, moving them from the comfort of their home, school and friends can also lead to stressful situations. However, if you plan your move, it can take a lot of the stress out of the situation.

This is also the time to hire your mover. It is critical that you don’t wait until the last minute to do this. The end of the month is usually the busiest time of the month for moving companies so you want to make sure that you have your move scheduled well in advance. Waiting until the last minute might cause you to make a choice that you may regret.

You also want to choose a company that has experience in the moving industry. A-1 Professional Movers has more than 30 years of experience so you will get the caliber of service that you deserve.

Once you get about a month away from the moving date, begin to pack. Start with the items that you know you won’t need in the next month. Packing can be one of the most daunting tasks involved with your move. If you try to do it all at once, you will be overwhelmed. If you break it down and work on it each day, the process will be much easier to handle. Also begin the process of getting any magazine subscriptions changed over to your new residence.

Two weeks before the move, start making the final push to get things packed. Get in touch with any financial institutions and other businesses and start getting your address changed over. You can also begin the process of staging your items for the move.

The last couple of days before the move, you want to start unhooking appliances and packing the last of the boxes. Leave unpacked only the bare essentials that you will need to survive with during the move. Follow up with the moving company to make sure that all the final arrangements are taken care of that that the moving day is still solid.

If you have followed all of these steps, moving day becomes the easiest part. Your work is done. Now all you have to do is let your movers do the rest.
