Are you relocating your residence or your office?  Do you want to make sure that there will be no problems in moving to your new residence or office?  If you want to avoid stress in moving to your new location, it is necessary to properly prepare.

Several weeks before your move, get a log book.  Record everything you need in order to make the move to your new location as smooth as possible.

Planning for the move a few days ahead will make it stressful and thus, ou will need a log and plan on how the move is going to go.  You may need to make a checklist and cross out everything as you finish them.

Also, contact the utility company and ask for their advice whether to disconnect or transfer the utilities.

Plan to have a garage sale well in advance of your move. Everybody has a bunch of stuff they no longer need or use…you may as well make a few bucks off of it before you go!

One to Two Weeks before the Move

Clean up your cupboards, eat as much of your food as you can before the moving day so that you will not need to pack tons of pantry items up to move to your new place.

You may also need to have the car serviced at this time.  Should you have power tools or a lawnmower that uses fuel, you may want to empty them now so that there will be time to dry them up and therefore avoid problems on the moving day.

If you have kids, remember to contact their school, doctor, babysitter and others well ahead of time to notify them of your new address.

Few Days Away from the Move

Finish packing your stuff, including the ones that you do not want the packing team to touch.

Clean up the refrigerator and disassemble furniture.

Contact 2 Burley Men and give instructions to the packing team.

Conduct your garage sale so that you will be clear of extra clutter.

Assist the packing team and give instructions when necessary.

On the Moving Day

Get up early and be ready for the move.

Supervise the loading of your stuff and make sure that the moving team is properly doing as instructed.  For the things that you will be moving on your own, make sure that they are properly packed in your car.

In the new house, be sure that the utilities are already connected.  Supervise the unpacking team and sign off the documents.

Moving is stressful, but preparing for it will help you go through with the move smoothly.
