Moving to another house, regardless of whether or not it is down the block or miles away, can be an extremely complicated process. Movers like us can ease the burden for you, but at the end of the day, there’s still a lot of work to be done on your own. Here’s an organized list that you can refer to as soon as you decide to move, before the overwhelming moving day.
Two Months Before:
Don’t be shocked just yet! Yes, you need to start your moving preparations two months before the actual move. Here’s what you should start with:
- Conduct thorough research about your new neighborhood. Get to know some key information about the area. You probably would have done most of this research while selecting your new house, but it doesn’t hurt to organize your findings yet again.
- Contact a few moving companies and ask for quotes. You don’t need to finalize this at the moment, but you should shortlist a few that match your requirements. Alternatively, you can let us know what you require and we can provide you with an immediate quote.
- Don’t forget to record your findings. Keep a single notepad for both the movers’ list and the neighborhood researches.
- Medical, dental, financial, and educational records need to be transferred to your new local specialists. But before you do any of that, you will need to consult your local doctor for a referral or two in your new destination. Identify your new physician, and transfer all medical records to that person. And once you have settled into your new house, you can ask for specialist referrals from the physician.
- Your child’s school records need to be transferred to their new school.
- You need to collate all copies and originals of legal and financial records. Also, you will need to contact your insurance agent so you can gather and transfer your home insurance files.
- All you need to do is plan your move. Once you start planning your move and identifying which items will be left behind, you will have much less work left during the actual moving procedure day. Scour your house for things that you could sell, and keep a tab on the things that you definitely want to take.
- Start to use your frozen foods, and confirm your transfer with your health clubs and other recreational organizations.
- Keep a reminder of this date, because you will need to do several important things on this day. The first thing will be to order all the moving supplies, unless you have them already. There’s no need for you to go hunting for boxes; we will provide you with those at the most affordable rates.
- Start packing all the essentials. If you don’t want to do this yourself, you can call us and we will get the entire pack done for you within two or three days.
- Notify the change of address to your postal services.
- Reserve this date for one thing only – utilities! Inform all your utilities about your move. Let the gas man, the electricity guy, the telephone person, the sewer people, the newspaper guy, and the trash guys know about your address change. If they provide services over at your new place too, then keep them; otherwise, you may have to search for other vendors for these services.
- If you have pets, you will need to start making travel arrangements for them. Pet transportation companies normally need to be notified a few weeks in advance.
- You also need to get your automobiles serviced. Drive any unused cars or motorbikes out of the garage and to your nearest service center.

- If there’s anything on this list that you haven’t yet tackled, now’s the time to get right to it!
- And if you have already completed everything up to this point, then all you need to do is double check the things you may have left behind. You don’t want any trouble on the moving day after all!
- The only thing that you need to do during the moving day is to oversee the labor that is being carried out. Management will be under your control. The rest of the stuff, you can leave it to us!
