Schedule utilities to be transferred to your new home. The day before or after moving day is the best time to schedule installation appointments so you can focus on moving day without interruptions.
Start planning how you will arrange your furniture in your new home. Use a tape measure to make sure everything will fit.
Moving Day is Here!
Be sure to have some essentials on hand at your new home. This includes paper towels, toilet paper, water, medications, and some snacks for energy.
Make sure keep your valuables in a safe place such as the trunk of your car.
Take your time! Unpacking and setting up is time consuming. Make sure to have the essentials labeled to unload first and take your time unpacking over the course of a few days or weeks.
Be sure to label your boxes so you don't have to guess which room it need to go to. What room it came from as well as a brief description as to what's inside will help make unpacking easier.
Save time on moving day by having already obtained keys to your new home or having already rented the storage unit your moving into.
