Planning A Move? Don’t Forget Your Moving Checklist

If you’re planning a move, you know that there are quite a few things to do before hand, even if you’ve decided to hire movers. To make sure you don’t forget anything, make sure to follow a moving checklist! Although your moving checklist might have a few variations, here are a few things to get you started.General Moving Checklist

There are quite a few items that should be on a general moving checklist. Once you know when you’re moving and your final address, contact your credit card company, your bank, magazine publishers, mobile phone providers and anyone else who needs to be updated with your new address. Don’t forget companies that you only deal with every once in a while, such as insurance companies, doctor’s offices and other businesses that might need to contact you in a few months. Don’t forget to also forward your mail through the post office just in case you miss notifying someone important.

Moving Yourself? Here’s Your Moving Checklist

If you’re planning on moving yourself, you’ll have a few different tasks on your moving checklist. You’ll need to find boxes and packing paper, first and foremost. Many people go from grocery store to grocery store to find boxes, but it’s actually better to purchase your supplies from a moving company. The boxes from a moving company are sturdier and designed to hold fragile valuables, such as dishes. Make sure to buy moving tape as well, because this tape can be quite a bit stronger than tape that you can buy in a regular store.
