The whole moving process is overwhelming and takes a long time. It can be difficult to know what to do and when. If you are struggling to know where to start, our team of expert Lake Worth Movers are here to help. We have developed a timeline to help you plan for your upcoming move. Here are some action items for when you are one month away:
- Layout Out Your Belongings – As you start packing, the best way to start is to go one room at a time and lay everything out. Then you can get a good idea of what you have and what you would like to move. Take this as a good opportunity to get rid of old, unwanted items and record exactly what you will be moving.
- Organize – Start by organizing your belongings and decide what you want to bring in the car with you when you move versus packing it in the moving truck. Layout and start packing items that you won’t be needing the in the next few weeks. As you are doing so, mark on your inventory sheet where each of these items are packed and label the boxes accordingly. This will help prevent any moving day and unpacking snafus.
- Plan the Logistics – Don’t wait until the last minute to have the details of your trip planned out. Schedule your hotel rooms, map your route, and purchase any supplies you may need for your trip. If you are moving with children or pets, it’s important to include breaks for along the route.
- Tell Your Service Providers – At a month out, this is the perfect time to update your utility company and submit a change of address form. This is also a great time to notify your medical provider, call your mover, and give your landlord a notice if need be.
So much needs to happen in order for a move to go off without a hitch, but instead of getting wrapped up in the details, start with these to-dos. These will set the foundation for a successful move.
