But the actual “moving” part? Oh, that’s no fun at all. In a very real sense, when you move, you pack up all the things from your old life, including a bunch of stuff you forgot you even had, and lug it along to your new life. And there are so many things to do. Things that if forgotten, tend to ruin your day (or week).
So to make the necessary evil that is moving as painless as possible, make sure you should go through a thorough checklist and ensure you've taken care of everything on it. Sure, check lists are boring. But they work. For small moves and big. Save yourself tears, sweat (and blood), and use a good checklist whenever you move.
So here’s our list to help you figure out what to do when moving:
- If needed, make arrangement with a good moving company. Get quotes from multiple vendors.
- Arrange utilities for your new home (and cancel or transfer them from your old home):
- Investment Accounts
- Mobile Phone
- Maid service
- Lawn service
- Pest control service
- Alarm service
So there you go, we hope that helps make your life a little easier. Call us if you have any questions and please comment below with your moving tips and ideas.
