This is How To Come Up With A Perfect Moving Date

Moving to a new house requires meticulous planning and the services of a professional mover. The task often seems overwhelming since there are endless tasks involved. Putting all these things together often confuse and frustrate. How to prioritize such that everything falls into place is the most challenging part. This is more so if you are making a long distance move. The very first step to this process is picking a moving date. But, how do you decide?

Here are some ideas.

Tips on picking the ideal moving date

Begin by creating a checklist of things to do. This gives you an idea of everything you need to tackle before you move. Seeing all these things you need to check off and possible time frame needed to do so will give you an indication of the earliest time you can move. Once you have that figured out, start working on ticking off every item on the list. Here are some of the things you need to take care of:

Shop around for a moving company

Begin your search for a moving service provider. A web search of such firms that operate within your area will give you a list of the top ones. Narrow down your result to three. Check them out while comparing their services and charges. Better still, request for cost estimates to help in formulating a budget.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-241-3110 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Be flexible

Inquire from the moving company whether they have a peak and off-peak season. If so, choose the latter since it less costly and the transport trucks are readily available.

Issue notice to the landlord

You need to notify the landlord of your intention to vacate. Most property owners and management firms prefer being issued with a month’s notice. Early notification not only sets you on an alert path but also provides the apartment owners with adequate time to prepare a refund of your security deposit.

Secure the new house

By the time you are penning down notice to your current landlord, you have already identified the property where you are moving. Finalize occupancy plans in good time by filling in the relevant documents and paying the requisite fee.

Take inventory

This will help you see the items you have. Categorize them under household, cutlery, electronics, clothing, books and so on. Using the list, separate the belongings you will take away from those you leave behind. A few assets are cheap to transportation. Start planning of how to dispose of items you no longer need.

By identifying a reputable mover, you set the stage for the commencement of your plans to relocate. Flexibility helps you cash in on off-peak discounts. Notice issued to your current landlord ensures that you are not turning back on your decision. You also need to finalize the rental agreement on your new apartment. Notify your current as well as the new employer. Take stock of the items you intend to carry. With these pointers taken care of and commitments made, you can now pick a moving date.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
