Are you one of the thousands of people planning a summer move? It’s a popular time to do it. The weather is good, the kids are out of school, and work and business often slow down a bit. Before you start down the path of scheduling your summer move, take a look at these pro tips to help you do it right.
Tip #1: Plan Ahead
The sooner you can start planning your move, the easier the process. Make a list of everything that needs doing, including packing, scheduling your mover, changing over utilities, registering the kids at a new school, reservations for boarding your pets, and what you’ll need to keep with you on move day.
Tip #2: Don’t Wait to Schedule You Movers
As soon as you know your potential move date, get your movers booked. Summer is the busiest time for moving companies, so get on their schedule ASAP. Plan ahead by calling for a free estimate even before you know your timing. It will help you prepare when you have your closing or move-in date confirmed.
Tip #3: Avoid the Rush
If possible, try to move on less busy days. A weekday in the middle of the month will be much less busy than a weekend at the beginning or end of the month. You’ll find it’s easier to schedule movers, easier to get your utilities hooked up, and your WIFI and cable or satellite installation are often quicker then, too.
