Create a local moving checklist
Creating a local moving checklist allows you to get more done and remain organized throughout your move. It also allows you to assign tasks to both family members and colleagues (if you are moving your office or small business.) Other benefits of creating a checklist for moving include; save time, energy, and gives you less of a chance to forget or overlook something.
Call your local movers and schedule your move
Your local moving checklist should include a call to schedule your move with your local moving company. It’s always a good idea to get a local moving quote or talk to your local mover beforehand so that they know exactly what is needed for your move.
As soon as you decide to move, it’s time to start cleaning. It’s our experience that it’s best to clean your basement, attic, and closets first as you will need space to store your boxes. Do not underestimate the time it takes to clean out these areas. For many people, preparing to pack for a move can take more time than imagined because movers tend to come across items that lead to long trips down memory lane.
Tie up loose ends
Schedule times for the disconnection of services like your gas and electric utility services, phone, cable, lawn services, and submit your change of address forms a few weeks before your moving date. Tieing up loose ends will help you remain stress-free during your move. It will also help you determine things to do after you completed your move and it’s time to unpack.
Dispose of gasses, flammables, and explosives.
By law, local moving companies like EZ Expressway, are not allowed to transport certain items. Some of these items include; gasoline, bottled gasses, ammunition, and flammable explosives of any kind. Be sure to have a safety plan to transport these items on your own prior to your move.
