Change your address:

One of the first things you need to do when you’re moving is to change your address. This way, your mail will be forwarded to your new home and you won’t have to worry about it getting lost in the move. You can change your address online, by phone, or in person at your local post office. Make sure to do this well in advance of your move so that your mail will arrive at your new home on time.

Notify service and utility companies :

Don’t forget to notify your utility and service companies of your move. This includes your power, gas, water, cable, and internet providers. Most companies require at least two weeks’ notice to make the necessary arrangements, so be sure to do this in advance. You may also need to set up new accounts at your new address.

Cancel membership fees

Some things to note before moving include cancelling your membership fees, notifying service and utility companies, and packing a few items just in case.

Prepare your new home:

Before you move all your belongings into your new home, take some time to prepare it. This includes things like cleaning the floors, dusting off surfaces, and painting walls if necessary. You may also want to change the locks on your doors for security purposes. This is a good time to also make a list of any repairs that need to be made so you can take care of them before you move in.

Our truck rental specialists recommend measuring doorways, hallways, and stairwells before moving day to ensure that your furniture and belongings will fit. If you’re renting a truck, be sure to allow enough time to load and unload it.
