Residential Moving Tips and Tricks to Keep in Mind

Here are some top tips to keep in mind when planning your move:


  1. Set Up the Move: It’s always a good idea to plan your moving date at least two weeks ahead of time. This helps you make sure the movers you want will be available. Plus, it gives you time to plan for the move without feeling rushed.
  2. Get Organized When Packing: When preparing to pack up your belongings for the move, first make sure you have several boxes of various sizes in each room to accommodate the different sized items you’re transporting. Then label each box so identifying its content will be easier. Also, make sure to mark fragile on the boxes containing delicate items.
  3. Transfer Insurance: This is also a good time to contact your insurance company to cancel policies on your current residence and set up new policies for your next home.
  4. Hire a Cleaning Service: If you rent your residence, a cleaning service will come in especially handy. Landlords are sticklers for holding back deposits if they think you left any part of your rental home or apartment dirty after moving out.
  5. Transfer Bank Accounts: A week before you move, make sure you either change bank accounts or notify your bank of your new address.
  6. Cancel Regular Services and Deliveries: This is also the time to make sure to stop deliveries of mail, packages, newspapers, and services like your yard crew.
  7. Pack Essentials: Whether you do your own packing, you still need to be sure to pack a traveling kit of necessary items to put in your car. It can include medication, changes of clothing, chargers, a debit card, toiletries, baby food, a flashlight, child-care items, pet food, pet vaccine papers, and your moving file.
  8. Unplug Appliances: A day or two before you move, unplug and defrost your refrigerator and freezer. Then clean them and air them out, making sure to keep them fresh by putting a box of baking soda inside. Also disconnect your TV’s modems, Wifi, computer, stereo, and gaming equipment and label them and their cables for easier reconnection at your new home.
  9. Move Your Vehicle: At this time, make sure your car is parked out of the way of the moving van. This will make it easier to get started the next morning.
  10. Use Paper Plates: To make sure you won’t have dishes to clean (they’ll all be packed away), plan on using paper plates a day or two before the big move. You might even consider eating out to reduce your stress even more.
  11. Secure Pets: On the day of the move, secure your pets in carriers out of the house, staying with them to keep them calm. After all, this is a confusing time for them too!
