Once you’ve made the final decision to move to a new place, perhaps the most stressful part of the process begins. There are a lot of other important decisions to be made in the coming weeks, and we at one of the best Nanaimo moving companies want to help you out with this checklist to follow when it comes to planning your move.
Look into moving companies and decide which services you will use
Moving companies nowadays can do more than transport your belongings from your old place to your new home. They can also help you to organize items and get rid of anything that it unwanted. They can also help you to pack on the day off, providing packing supplies if need be. Start looking into your options now, so everything can be sorted out when it comes to your big day. Make sure to check whether the companies you are considering have the right insurance coverage and licensing.
Start a binder to organize expenses and your belongings
Create a system now that you can use to keep track of your receipts and quotes from potential moving companies, so you will not have to scramble later when something does not go as planned. It’s also a good idea to keep a list of where certain items are placed as you start the packing process, either by yourself or with your hired movers.
Begin planning for the important aspects of your family’s life that will be affected by the move
If you have kids, make sure their school records will get sent to their new school on time. As your moving day approaches so there is a month or less to go until the big day, start beginning the process of changing your address for other purposes, too.
Figure out which furniture can stay and which can go
When it comes to your bigger-sized belongings, a time will come when you’ll have to figure out whether everything will work at your new place. About a couple of months before you move, take some measurements of your new place, including of the door frames. With this information, you can determine whether any of your furniture will not be able to fit in your new home, even when it is disassembled.
