One thing we have noticed over the years is that moving doesn’t end when the moving truck is closed. There are things you, the homeowner or renter, must do BEFORE you can close up shop at your current home. If you are wondering what needs to be taken care of, please read on!
One of the most important things you will need to schedule is the cancelation or transfer of current services you utilize at your home. This includes things like water, sewage, electricity or gas, cable, internet, phone, and trash pick-up. It is generally recommended that you contact these companies about 1 month prior to your move. Be sure to give the companies your new address as you will need to pay the remainder of the bill after you have moved.
At the 2-week mark before your move, be sure that you fill out a change of address form from the post office. You can do this a few different ways. If you’d rather forego heading to the post office, you can fill out these forms online. You will want to alert your banking institution and make them aware of your new address and cancel memberships from places like workout facilities if you will not be using them once you are gone. Talk to your insurance company and alert other companies that you use of your change of address. Set yourself up for success by communicating with the places of business you work with.
Moving can be stressful, we all know this. However, knowing when you need to take care of things will help you transition easily. As always, A Mother’s Touch Movers is here to help. Contact us today.
