The most important thing to keep in mind as you prepare to move into a new home is don’t procrastinate. The last thing you want is for moving day to arrive and you’re scrambling to pack up items. This is how stuff gets broken or left behind. The moving clock should really start ticking 30 days out from the official move date. At the 30 day mark you should be gathering up packing supplies like boxes and wrapping paper. You’ll probably end up using more than you think. This is why you should consider renting plastic containers. For about the same amount as you would pay for moving boxes, you can have plastic bins dropped off at your home for the move. Best of all, all that cardboard won’t be going to waste.
At the beginning of the 30 day mark is when you should also begin the process of switching over things like your utilities, cable and phone company. You’ll need a couple of weeks to schedule an appointment for some of those hook-ups. The more time you give those folks the better off you can be. Ideally those hook ups should happen on the day you move. If you can get into the property a day early that would be even better. You’ll also want to switch over all your mail and subscriptions.
There are some folks who let movers do all the packing. That’s a very expensive proposition. If you’re starting 30 days in advance you could set a goal to pack up three or four boxes a day. That’s not a lot of work and it lets you stay organized. Don’t forget to label those boxes not only with the items inside but also what room that movers should put them in. As you begin to pack up all those items you’ll definitely be taking with you you’ll probably make a discovery of a lot of stuff you don’t want. This would be all your useless junk.
