Planning Your Local Move
It’s no secret that moving is overwhelming. There are so many things to keep track of: when do you start packing? Did you notify the utility company to shut off their services? How do you decide what items go with you to your new home and what items will be tossed?
Here at Lewis & Michael, we partner with Atlas Van Lines to help your move go smoothly, wherever you’re moving to. They’ve come up with a great moving checklist to help keep you on track throughout the course of your move.
Here’s a quick timeline of the moving checklist:
- Two months: create a floor plan for your new home. Start purging items you no longer want or need so you don’t have to move them. Figure out what items you can pack yourself and determine which items you’d like professional movers (like us at Lewis & Michael) to handle.
- One month: fill out a change of address form for the post office. Transfer your utilities, school records and insurance records. Discontinue delivery services and make sure to put in your new address into those services.
- Three weeks: service your major appliances you’ll be taking with you. Cancel cable and satellite TV.
- Two weeks: toss items that might jeopardize your packed items’ safety, like fireworks, cleaning fluids, bottled gas and aerosols. You can always purchase these products once you’ve arrived at your destination.
- One week: finalize arrangements with your Lewis & Michael moving counselor. Start deep cleaning your current home and packing. Be sure to locate personal items you’d like in your “first night bag”: pajamas, toothbrush, vitamins or shampoo so they don’t accidentally get packed.
