TWO WEEKS BEFORE YOUR MOVE

  • Have your bank(s) transfer accounts and release a safe deposit box.
  • Arrange to have utilities disconnected here and connected at the new home.
  • Give away or donate to a charitable organization items you don’t plan to move. Get a signed receipt for tax purposes.

SEVEN DAYS BEFORE YOUR MOVE

  • Dispose of all flammables.
  • Set aside items to be packed into your car.
  • Start packing suitcases you can live out of before we arrive at your new home.
  • In a special carton, place items you will need as soon as you arrive (soap, towels, coffee, cooking pots, etc.). Mark this box: LOAD LAST – UNLOAD FIRST.
  • Contact newspaper(s) to stop delivery.
  • Contact your cable company to have the service turned off.

THE DAY BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Empty and defrost your refrigerator and freezer.
  • Set up for a simple breakfast the next morning that won’t require much refrigeration or cooking. Use paper plates.
  • Finish packing your personal belongings.
  • Get a good night’s sleep.

MOVING DAY

  • Be on hand when the movers arrive, or arrange to have someone there, to answer questions.
  • Accompany the van operator while he inventories your goods.
  • Make a last-minute check on your appliances to see that they have been serviced.
  • Sign (and save) your copy of the bill of lading and make sure the delivery address and phone numbers are correct.
  • Before leaving the house, check all closets and cabinets. Make sure windows and doors are locked.

MOVING–IN TIPS

  • Keep our number, 1-800-245-8563, on hand, so that you can contact us if final arrangements have not been made for delivery.
  • Be present at unloading and have a plan for the placement of furniture.
  • Check the condition of your belongings. If any items are missing or damaged, note this on your inventory sheet and shipping papers, then contact our office.
  • If your utilities have not been connected, call them for this service, and have them check your appliances for proper operation.
  • Have a Healthy and Happy future in your new home!
