With an unwavering dedication to creating the perfect move, we have developed some great moving tips that can assist you in making your relocation easier than you ever imagined. As always, if you would like help with your move, you can contact our office to schedule our movers.
Create a Timeline
As the famous saying goes, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” The key to a seamless move is proper planning and preparation. One of the first things that you should do is create a moving timeline. A moving timeline can help to ensure that important tasks do not end up getting forgotten in all of the chaos. Create a series of goals and markers that will help you keep track. Your timeline should start around two months before moving day. Don’t have time to create a moving timeline? No worries! MyBekins has already created the perfect moving timeline checklist to keep you moving forward.
Research Your New Neighborhood
Not knowing your surroundings can be a bit unnerving. Before you move into your new home, research your new neighborhood. Learn the best places to eat, the local schools, sports teams, events, community activities, and more. Most neighborhoods have their website or Facebook group with all information you need to know. Do a quick Internet search to find your neighborhood or city’s main website. You may even be able to connect with your future neighbors before you move in!
Discuss with Your Family
Make some time to sit down with your family and discuss your move. If you have young children, a move can be a very scary experience. They may feel uneasy about leaving everything they have known. It is important that you provide support and assurance to every member of your family about what they can expect during the move. Work with each family member to find something exciting they will want to do when you move into your new home.
Choose the Right Mover
Having the right help leading up to moving day is probably the most important moving tip we can provide. When you hire a reliable mover, you don’t have to worry about packing, crating, moving, or storage. You can rest easy knowing that all your belongings will arrive safely at your new home. You have enough to worry about during the course of your move, let myBekins take care of the rest.
