DALLAS, TX Â Moving your family to a new location can be difficult, whether youÂre using a moving company to haul your possessions across the country or just using a rental truck to move across town. Finding how-to help is only a click away at Verizon superpages.com. This local search and shopping resource can be a great asset both before and after your move.
Planning before the move can prevent many headaches after the move. Verizon superpages.com is a great place to start building a checklist.
Summer traditionally is the yearÂs busiest moving season. The first step is to reserve a moving company or rental truck early enough to ensure the most choices and best price. While youÂre planning, donÂt forget to buy enough packing supplies like packing tape and boxes to fit all of your stuff.
One of the hardest parts of moving is deciding what to pack, sell, give away or throw away. Storage companies are a good solution for holding items you donÂt want to part with, but donÂt have room for in your new home. Storage units come in several sizes to accommodate a closetful Â or houseful Â of items.
Movers will not handle hazardous materials, pets or plants. Plan to move these items yourself.
Next on your moving checklist is making your new home move-in ready. Start by contacting your utility companies, phone company, cable television or satellite provider and cityÂs trash collection service to transfer services to your new home. If youÂre moving into a house, donÂt forget to have your water and air conditioning turned on in time for move-in day.
To make moving day even easier, hire a cleaning crew to make your new home spotless before you move in. These services also can take care of the mess you leave behind!

Prior planning and organization using Verizon superpages.com can help ensure a hassle-free move during the busy summer season Â or any time of year.
