Spring Moving Tips to Get You Started
Spring is the perfect time to move! The weather is getting warmer again, and there is a spirit of change in the air. It’s a time for new beginnings, so it lines up perfectly with moving to a new home or getting a new job.
To make your spring move a success, you need to do a little planning and make the right choices. Here are a few things your local Mesa moving company wants you to know so you can have a successful move this spring:
The first thing you should do is hire a professional Chandler moving company to handle your move. With that off your plate, you can rest easy knowing that the heavy lifting is going to be handled by professionals who have the skills and the experience to move things safely and quickly. You don’t have to wrangle with flaky friends or busy schedules to figure out how to manage it all yourself. You don’t have to rent a truck or bribe people with pizza (which isn’t much of a bribe anyway).
Search for local movers in Chandler or long distance movers, depending on where you plan to move. Look for a moving company near Chandler that has a reputation for excellent service, affordable pricing, and safety. Once you find the right movers, you can relax and focus on the other details of your move.
Get Packing Materials
Once you’ve hired the Mesa 85212 movers, you can start packing. The earlier you start packing, the better, so that you aren’t rushed and stressed out over the process. Start collecting packing materials now, including the right boxes, bubble wrap or other padding, filler like Styrofoam peanuts, furniture padding, and more. Don’t skimp on packing materials. You need the right type and the right amount to ensure that your belongings are protected during the move.
Of course, you can make things even easier on yourself by hiring the Scottsdale 85255 movers to do the packing for you. Then you don’t have to worry about collecting any materials or packing any of the items.
If you are moving a long distance, you will likely need to drive for a couple of days (or more) to get to your new location with your vehicles (unless you are hiring movers to transport your vehicles, as well). Plan your trip and make sure you have lodging at the appropriate stopping points along the way.
Be sure to get travel insurance or to book with a hotel that has a generous cancellation policy. You may have to change your lodging if your trip doesn’t go as planned or if other things about your move change.
Update Health Records and School Registration
Two things you are going to need to do as soon as you arrive in your new location will be to send your kids to school (if you have them) and to update your health records in case you have to see a doctor. The farther away you are moving, the more complicated this process might be since there are different laws for school registration and health records by municipality or state.
Research schools in your new home and start gathering the information you will need to register your children. You should plan to have your children in their new school as quickly as you get to your new home as possible so that their education is not disrupted. Talk to your doctor and dentist about obtaining a copy of your records and what you’ll need to do to transfer them when you have selected a new provider.
Develop a Backup Plan
Things don’t always go as planned. It may take you longer to sell your home than you thought, or it may take longer for you to close on your new home than you thought. Or your new job gets a delayed start date, or someone in your family gets sick and you have to push back your move. Make sure you have a backup plan for your move.
Talk to your nationwide mover about what you’ll do if you need to change your date. Have travel insurance in case you need to change lodging. Have a place to stay if you need a short-term rental.
Having a plan for your spring move can reduce some of the stress you feel and can make it less likely that anything goes wrong during your move. Follow these tips, and your spring move will go as smoothly as possible!
