It is a lot indeed. It is common to have details overlooked or forgotten in the middle of the chaos. To remind you about details that are often forgotten during your long-distance move experience, we at Sky Van Lines Moving would to help you avoid some of that last-minute stress.
Keep Track of Packed Hardware & Other Odds & Ends
Including the lock and keys for the gate, curtain rods, TV wall mounts, hardware for the full-length mirror and so on; make certain everything is packed where you can find it again. Ensure to go from room to room and get all the hardware that may have been overlooked, excluding the permanent fixtures that will belong to the new occupants. To help stay organized, label plastic bags with the various hardware. To keep you from not having go through the hassle of mailing it back that is a common occurrence, leave the garage door opener behind.
What to Do with Important Papers when Moving
Retrieve physical files from doctors, dentists, therapists, veterinarians, schools, and other professionals possessing personal records. You will likely need to have your files transferred to the new professionals. Medical records you should have include procedures or surgeries and prescriptions, the kids’ school records, and other pertinent information for you, family, and pets. All that should be aware of address change and your forwarding address setup. Make certain any IRS, DMV, post office or other government entities know your new address. Even as you travel until they can be securely stored and handed out to the appropriate offices, any physical copies given should be kept with you during the move.
Cancel Local Gym & Other Memberships when You Move
To ensure you save your cash, take care of the membership cancellations 6 weeks before your move. After the long-distance move it is frustrating to have to continue paying for the neighborhood gym or kickboxing class for months. To help ensure it is done before you leave, most places request a written 30-day notice for cancelling and doing it 6 weeks in advance. Make certain the correct address is in their system, update the new address on your automated monthly subscriptions, online shopping, bills, and other services.
Plan Travel Arrangements for a Cross Country Move
The spiraling of tasks seems to be never-ending because long-distance moves are often rushed towards the very end. Because of the distractions that come with moving, many people tend to neglect the travel plans of getting from the old house to the new one. In addition to booking the accommodations, depending on the travel method, many people forget to pack a “first night” bag or enough luggage for the traveling. Make arrangements for your pets and auto-transports in advance and be sure to collect personal documents, IDs, passports, and other official documents.
