In last week’s post, we have already made some useful suggestions on how to make moving easier. This is part two of our list.
Make moving easier – online and offline
There are two general areas for early preparations to reduce stress on moving day, and even in the transitional phase after having just moved into your new home. While this might not be the first thing that comes to mind: You can do a lot of preparation via the internet. For starters, you can check out our Moving Tips to get a lot of information and inspiration for your move. Here are more things you can do online:
- Google Street View: Have a look around your new neighborhood.
- USPS: Schedule the forwarding of your mail from your old to your new address.
- Health Care Providers: Depending on how far away you are moving, you might need to change your health care providers. One option is to contact your health insurance company. They might have a referral service that can recommend doctors in your new neighborhood. To help with your decision, you can check the doctor’s ratings and reviews. By doing this, you will get a better idea of your provider options. At the very least, it makes sense to look for the nearest walk-in clinic and/or emergency room for your new address.
- Utility and Service Providers: Research the potential new providers for your new address and organize the transfer. You can find numerous resources for that online.
- Moving Company: Start early with researching the right moving company for you. Contact us for further information and a free quote!
More tips for early preparations
- Kitchen Gadgets: Do you think you’ll be needing that pasta maker and the waffle iron during the last couple of weeks before your move? That does of course depend on your cooking habits. But chances are, that you only use such items every now and then. Therefore, it might be a good idea to start packing those. Label the respective moving box clearly and store it somewhere out of your way.
- China: Do you frequently entertain guests or is there an important holiday or other celebration taking place before moving day? If not, you can probably pack away your “good” china, silver cutlery, crystal glasses etc. as well.
- Books: Do you have many books? With that, we don’t mean books in digital format, but physically tangible books that are lined up in your book cases? Let’s face it: It is unlikely that you are going to read them all before moving. Why not pack those as well?
