Notifying Your Neighbors And Friends About The Move

Notifying Your Neighbors And Friends About The Move

Making a move may seem like something that affects you only but this is not the case. It is in order to notify your neighbors and friends about the move. A1 Auto Transport offers you reliable and timely shipping services and it is therefore good to be ready to move when the set date arrives. Long distance moves can also be overwhelming and you therefore need to take action on all the details in good time. This includes notifying your neighbors and friends about your move well in advance.

Why you should say goodbye

It is best to communicate your move to your friends and neighbors, whether via phone or in person, rather than to have them learn about your move via a different platform. This is the most courteous thing to do. In return, some may be courteous enough to offer to help you on your moving day. Accept their requests and in case you will be making a self-move, you will have many able hands to assist you.

Your move may also be coinciding with a neighbor’s plans for their day. Notifying them about your move gives them enough time to plan for any changes to be made.

Long distance movers may have large trucks. The transport option that you will hire shall be parked at your neighborhood. While notifying our neighbors about your move, you may also inform them about this and apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause. Also, you can ask for permission to have the moving truck occupy the parking space.

When to say goodbye

In general, you should notify your neighbors about your move in advance. On moving day, you can also bid your closest neighbors farewell. This avoids a situation in which you are bidding them farewell on the moving day, potentially causing delays. Also, since you would have mentioned that you would be leaving the neighborhood in advance, anyone who would be interested in catching up with you will have the chance to do so before moving day.

Before locking your door, get knocking on your neighbor’s doors

These are people you have lived next to for a while and hopefully formed relationships with. It is therefore not in order to just walk away without a backward glance. Be sure you say farewell before the moving truck leaves the driveway; these are the hallmarks of good neighborliness. Having let them know in advance will make this a quick farewell and you can be on your way.

Notifying your neighbors and friends about your move gives those who would like to know your new address the chance to ask you for the details. It also gives you the chance to inform your neighbors about the potential disturbances that may be caused by the activities on your moving day. This also includes the noise and movements that may be happening during early morning hours, especially when you are making a long distance move. Make a friendly move!
