There are many things to consider when planning your household move. Of course some of these items may also apply to a business move, but in this article we will offer list of items that you need to complete when moving your home. Decide what day you would like to move. It may be less expensive to hire movers to move you during the week.
Do you need help packing or unpacking? Decide this early on so that you can schedule
packers before your move. Let your current utility company know the date that you
would like your service transferred. This will include your cable or satellite provider. Your cell phone provider may also need to change.
Notify your gas, water, and trash pickup and electricity provider of your impending move. Internet providers will also need to be notified.
Set up these services at your new location ahead of time. If you have local phone service you will need to notify them as well. If you have a security system, please notify them about your impending move. You will also want to set them up at your new location.
Months before you move, you may want to keep a record of the places where you will need to submit a change of address. Besides magazines, think Doctors offices, dentists and friends. Look at your Christmas card list as a starting point for the friends list.
Here are a few other places you may want to notify. Other business you may want to provide with your new address.
CPA or tax preparer, Grammar Schools, High schools or universities you have attended, alumni associations you belong to, lawyers or attorneys, day care providers as well as babysitters, credit card companies and banks. Credit bureaus, car companies for warranties, any warranty companies for warranties you have purchased, DMV-Department of Motor Vehicles.
We recommend the DMV since your yearly car registration will be mailed directly to your home. Also your driver’s license renewal will be mailed to you.
Notify your lawn maintenance company, any health clubs that you belong to. Change the address on newspaper subscription. If you have a personal card that you hand out at
events, you will need to make up a card with your new address. If you are moving for a new job, you will also need to make up new business cards.
Traveling? You will need new luggage tags. PTA- parent teacher associations may need to be notified. A veterinarian or pet sitter will need your new address. If you use doggie day care, they will also need your new address. If you are moving to a new area, try and get your vet records and ask them to recommend a veterinarian in your new area.
While this list may not be every place that you will need to notify before you move, it will give you a head start on the notification process.
If you are moving out of town, there are many options available to you. Besides your regular blanket wrap move, you may want to consider freighting furniture. Why is this a good option you may ask?
If you are a self mover, you can save the expense of renting a truck. A company can come out, and pick up your furniture. They can then wrap it, and put it on a pallet for freight shipping. The furniture can then be delivered to your curb in your new city. You can even request inside delivery.
This saves you on loading and unloading your furniture. You can even have your car or truck
transported to your new city.
