Start Preparing

Planning and starting early is vital for a smooth and seamless moving experience. Once you’re sure of when you’ll move, it’s time to call your utility company to inform them. 

This way, they can turn off the utilities on the said date, so you don’t have to pay for utilities you’re not using. With the budget you have, look for experienced movers that can do a good job and contact them. 

Depending on the moving contractor, early booking can attract some discounts. Then, start sorting through your stuff. Identify the things you’ll be moving with and those you’ll be discarding. 

Fumigate and Disinfect the New Place

Find out about the most common pests in the area and use disinfectants that are specific to that pest in your home. For example, use mosquito control pesticides if you want to get rid of mosquitoes in the new area –swampy or humid areas tend to have lots of these. 

After the house has been fumigated, have the new place thoroughly cleaned so that the chemicals don’t end up hurting you or your loved ones. The best time to clean is 1-2 days before you move.

Pack Your Stuff So They’re Easy to Identify

Pack your items in various packing boxes and label them accordingly. All breakables and fragile stuff should be labeled accordingly too. This way, the movers will be a lot more careful with the items. 

The good news is most experienced movers are very careful with customers’ items –whether they’re fragile or not. This is why it’s important to only hire those with good or high ratings. 

Ensure You’re Done Packing Before Moving Day

Whatever you do, make sure that you’re done packing the day before your move. Only leave the mattresses you’ll be sleeping on and some other essentials. Once it’s the morning of the moving day, pack up everything you used the previous night and get ready for the movers. 

Remember to notify the utility company serving the new place early on so they can turn on the utilities on the day you’ll be moving in. that way, you’ll have adequate water, heating or cooling, gas, and power. 

Conclusion

All these tips should help make the moving process smooth and successful. If you will be renting a U-Haul and moving your things yourself, the same tips apply, minus the movers. 

Also, remember to pack some food. You and your folks will need it when you get there. Once you arrive at the new place, you’ll find that it’ll be much easier to unpack and arrange the home properly. Good luck.
