When moving to a new address, there are a number of things you will need to do, and others that aren’t necessary but will make things go much smoother. The sooner you start the process, the less hectic your move will be. Here’s the quick list of items to check off:
You will want to let USPS know where to send your new mail. Simply go to usps.com/move and follow the prompts.
Depending on your providers, this can be a tedious process – the sooner you get it done the better!
Notify your bank, insurance companies, the DMV, and any other agencies of the address update.
Months before you move, keep a mental inventory of your belongings and ask yourself – has it been over a year since I have used this? If the answer is yes, there is a good chance you can do without it. Donate or sell any items that you think you can do without. It may be hard to part with at first, but odds are you will not miss it once it’s gone. Not only will it make your move go smoother, it can have profound emotional benefits well after your move.
Find a moving company that has many online reviews of 4.5+ stars, and that has the proper licensing and insurance to move your household goods interstate. Remember, good movers are not cheap and cheap movers are not good. Long distance moves, on average will cost $2,400 – $5,000, so be prepared to shell out some cash during the moving quote process.
A couple days out from your big day, it is time to start packing. You can pay your moving company to do this, but we recommend doing it yourself to save a significant amount of money, as well as keep a better inventory on your items. First you need boxes. You can buy new boxes or find used/recycled boxes for free. Always get double the amount of boxes than you think you will need. You have way more stuff than you may think. Begin by packing items that you will not need for the next couple days. Keep all boxes open so you can add or remove items as needed up until moving day.
Address changed, stuff packed, moving company hired. Now it is hours before your moving appointment. What can you do to prepare? Your #1 priority now should be simplifying the moving process for your movers – this will significantly lower your bill and put you in the good graces of your company.
