Before Your Big Move, Don’t Forget to Do These Things

Moving into a new home is both exciting and challenging, and it’s easy to get caught up in the rush and forget about the little details that can either make the entire moving process simple or more difficult. In this post, our home experts at Handyman Connection of Matthews share things you shouldn’t forget to do before the day of the big move.

Make an Inventory

Before you move, categorize the stuff you’ll be taking with you. This makes packing them simpler and more efficient. It also ensures you don’t have to open all your moving boxes at once when you arrive for a tidy and efficient unpacking process.

Get Rid of Unnecessary Items

Things that you may have outgrown or no longer need shouldn’t be making the trip with you to your new home, so get rid of those items. This frees up your packing space and reduces the clutter in your future home. Before the big move, we recommend setting aside day or two to do a quick garage sale. You may also donate your old things or let your friends or loved ones take their pick.

Inform Your Contacts About Your New Address

The last thing you want is for mail and important packages to get sent to your old address. At least a week before you move, take some time to update your family, friends, bank, credit card company, school or other institutions about your new address.

Don’t Pack Your Important Documents

Never pack your important documents in the boxes or in the moving van. These include your checkbook, passport and other important paperwork. Take these with you in your car. The last thing you want is to lose these during the move.

Finally, we recommend hiring a professional mover to handle your belongings. It’s tempting to do it on your own, but without the right transport for the job, you might have to do multiple trips to move all your stuff.
