When it comes to moving, there is a long list of things that need to be done. Most people remember to do the obvious things like pack their boxes, contact a moving company, sell their home, etc. However, there are still a lot of other tasks that need to be done that people often forget. So, here’s a checklist of things that people often forget to do to prepare for their move:

  • Contact the post office to have all of your mail forwarded to your new address. Contact friends, family, and businesses that you want to know your new address.
  • Take pictures of your expensive items before you pack them. That way you have proof for your insurance in case they are damaged during the move. Along the same vein, be sure to get moving insurance.
  • Clearly label each box that you pack with the room where it belongs as long as what items the box contains.
  • Arrange to have your utilities cut off in your old home and turned on in your new home.
  • If you have school-aged children, contact their current school to let them know about the move. Then, be sure to contact their new school to have them enrolled.
  • Create a spreadsheet or some sort of list of how many boxes you have packed and what each box contains. This will help you make sure that nothing is lost or misplaced during the move.
  • If you have pets, visit their veterinary office to request any records you may need for their next veterinarian. Also, be sure to make arrangements for them during the move so that they don’t get in the way.

Aside of these items, the most important thing to do before you move is to find a moving company that you can trust. When you hire Advance Moving and Storage in Kinston, NC, you can rest assured that your move will be handled in a professional manner by a moving company that cares.
