Moving Day Mistakes
Moving can be such an overwhelming process; from looking for a new house all the way to settling into your new home. There are many steps to take and lists of things to keep in mind in order to ensure a smooth move. Your best defense against a moving day blunder is PLANNING!
The more prepared you are, the less likely a chance for something to be forgotten or neglected.
DON’T try to do everything yourself.
We know you’re trying to save money but at what cost? It’s easy to lose your sanity while attempting to move your family into a new neighborhood. Ask family and friends for help and let the kids pack their stuff up in their bedrooms. The best solution is to usually hire a professional moving company in the Essex area. They take care of packing, loading, shipping and unloading. Make sure you hire insured movers!
DON’T leave everything till last minute.
Have you ever had so many things to do, that you just took a nap instead? We understand that moving can look like a mountain of work but, if done in parts; can be quite manageable. Split everything up into stages and tackle tasks that way. Certain tasks involve timelines such as terminating services such as gas, electric, phone etc. Make sure that is done in time and set up in your new home, so you don’t walk into a cold house with no lights. Delays can cost you and we’re not just talking money. Rushing around last minute is not ideal and will result in in things getting lost, left behind or damaged.
DON’T forget to have a moving day plan for kids and pets.
Moving is already hectic without your kids and pets running around. Maybe have their grandparents watch them or another trusted family member while you transition homes. Make sure pets are looked after as well as they can get in the way of your move.
DON’T be lazy and not read your paperwork from the moving company carefully.
If you just glance over at your moving company paperwork, you may overlook charges and important insurance information. Read over any paperwork carefully and thoroughly to avoid unexpected surprises and charges!
