We have an effective and realistic approach to planning a local move and have outlined a few tips below. Take an extra day: Moving into a new home is exciting and most want to get in and get settled as soon as possible. Most think that a local move can be done in one day but it is best to take an extra day to manage details, finish paperwork and prepare for belongings to arrive. Taking an extra day to ensure paperwork on closings is properly completed and giving yourself time to prepare for belongings to arrive makes the moving process much less stressful and helps things get done correctly the first time. Sleep on it: Closing on a current residence, packing up belongings, closing on a new residence and moving into a new home is a lot to crowd into one day. Take a night to sleep in your new residence and have the moving truck arrive the next day. This enables you to settle into your new home and decide where belongings should be placed when they roll off the truck the next day. Also, a good night’s rest will leave you refreshed and ready for what lies ahead the next day. Be organized and save money: Taking an extra day to finalize details and decide where furniture should be placed in your new home really expedites the moving process. Since movers are paid by the hour, getting things lined up before they arrive eliminates you having to pay them for sitting around and waiting while you sign paperwork and decide where you want belongings placed. Communication is key: The moving process requires you to coordinate details and information with realtors, movers and attorneys. Take a moment and log details of what information has been passed along to whom. This will save you time and frustration and will help you effectively communicate as you manage all elements of your relocation. Moving into a new home is exciting but taking one extra day to manage details and get things lined up before belongings arrive will make the process much more manageable and efficient.
