Innovative Moving Tips

Before your next, big move – consider these helpful suggestions.

Planning for your move

  1. Share your plans with your children so they know what is involved. They may be wondering how the move will affect them
  2. Take inventory of your belongings. Try to separate the things that can be donated or put into a garage sale, so you don't need up needing to move them
  3. Schedule all aspects of the move 6-8 weeks in advance of moving day
  4. In the summer choose your moving company 4-5 weeks before. Other months, 3 weeks in advance should be plenty of notice
  5. Plan to move during the week when utilities, banks and government offices are open
  6. Contact your insurance agent to transfer your coverage. If you will be using the services of a storage facility, make sure your insurance applies
  7. Try to plan your meals a few days before so you don’t have to worry about food spoiling during the move
  8. Find the services you and your family will need in your area before you move in
  9. Notify the post office that your mail needs to be forwarded and advise anyone else of your move, especially the utilities
  10. Cancel and or transfer all services to your new home
  11. If the move is taking you to a new city, make hotel reservations before you leave
  12. Return any library books

Packing before you move

  1. Keep all personal records such as medical information, passports, birth certificates etc. in an accessible area while you pack
  2. Get help! It’s time for all those you have helped move in the past to pitch in
  3. Before moving day, pre-pack as much as possible
  4. Pack all books in boxes flat, storing them on end can damage them
  5. Pack a small bag with some tools
  6. Label all boxes so you know which boxes go where in your new home
  7. If the boxes are being stored, label the contents in more detail. You’ll never remember in 3 months time what they contain

Moving day has arrived

  1. Don’t plan on cooking meals
  2. Double check to see that the moving company driver knows their exact destination
  3. Load houseplants last and unload them first. In colder months you may want to have a plant service move them for you in their heated van
  4. Items should be stacked whenever possible. Be careful with boxes; store the heavier ones on the bottom, and lighter ones on top
  5. Tip couches up on end
  6. Make sure that if you need something later, that it is stored near the entrance of the unit
  7. Pack a travel bag with items you may need such as toys for the kids and maybe some aspirin!
  8. Remember, during the move you may be stressed, but take comfort knowing you don’t have to move every day

Your move is over

  1. Change and verify your information at the bank and other important service providers (ie: your vehicle dealership)
  2. Arrange for someone to look after your pets until you’ve fully unpacked and settled
  3. Save all your receipts related to moving; they may be tax deductible
