Local Moving Guide & Checklist
Nothing make a move easier than being prepared and organized. If you are like most people, you haven’t moved in a while and don’t even know where to start. Since our mission is always to make everyone’s big life transitions as easy as possible- we have created a Local Moving Guide and a Local Move Checklist Planner to give you all you need to prepare for your best relocation ever!
Think of the time frames on this Local Moving Guide as deadlines- if you are able to work ahead of time; do it! Being ahead will only take more stress and pressure off you to be ahead than it will to be working on things at the last possible moment. This is especially true in peak moving season, which runs from late spring to early autumn. The more advance notice you can give your mover, the more likely they will be in accommodating the move day you want. Many of the country’s top moving companies are booked over a month in advance, in busy/ peak season. Don’t wait until the last minute and get stuck with the only mover in town with availability left on their schedule.
Once your move is complete- take your time settling in. You likely could use a break and making rash decisions when settling in will result in a disorganized home. Think on where the items were placed in your old home. Did it work well in that location or was it always just a bit ‘off’? Be aware that you may want to try a few locations for things before fully committing to it- like for artwork or which cabinet you keep your plates in. Unpack most commonly used items first, give them a ‘home’ in the most convenient and accessible locations- and work from there. You’ll be all settled in and loving your new space in no time.
