There is no denying that moving is overwhelming in the best of times. There are so many things that must be done that the risk of forgetting something important is a huge worry. With the nagging feeling that a seemingly small detail has been forgotten, the whole thing can be nerve wracking. Those "small" details can often be the worst, as they tend to have a domino effect on the move.
For example, forgetting to have utilities turned on in the new home on the right date could mean no water or electricity at move in time, and maybe not in time to enjoy such luxuries on the first day of a new job or at a new school. The same is true of neglecting to have those things turned off in the old house in a timely manner. The result could be quite expensive, though the task itself doesn't seem that large. The moving checklists released by Movers. Net are designed to help their costumers get through the ordeal in an organized manner and with their sanity intact.
Movers.net CEO, Mr. Randy Rodriguez explains that “The idea is to take things one step at a time, start early, and check and double check the list to ensure that all the items have been completed”. It can be tempting to wait until a couple of weeks before to start, but the professionals at Movers.Net recommend starting to prepare for you moving day much earlier than that. In fact, Mr. Rodriguez continues “the first list begins 6 to 8 weeks before the move, on the checklist you will be reminded making travel arrangements, to clean out and discard items that will not be moved, and gathering packing materials. All this to ensure our customers are well prepared for moving day”.
The next recommended moving checklist covers the range of 4 to 5 weeks with suggestions mostly pertaining to changing your address with the post office as well as utilities, credit cards, and friends and family. This step comes with the warning to ensure that all parties involved know the date the change is to become effective so that mail is not going to the new address a month early. Taking care of this early, despite the risk of mail being rerouted too soon, is wise due to the fact that the hectic, chaotic schedule that ensues closer to the move carries the risk that this very important step will be missed.
Next is a series of weekly checklists for 3 weeks, 2 weeks, and 1 week before the move, all counting down to the day before and the day of the move. These checklists start with reminding to making certain pets have all the necessary medical care needed, since it could be a bit before you find a vet at the new location. among the items on the checklist you will also be reminded to clean and drain larger items to be moved such as appliances and lawn care equipment, as well as prepare a separate box to keep with you during the moving process, containing items that you might be needing. This should include necessary cleaning supplies, toiletries, and even items to keep children occupied while the movers are working.
Movers.net created these checklist with the goal of easing the stress of moving day by offering a guideline of where and when to start. They maintain that taking things one step at a time, and starting early, can be just the ticket to a stress free move. Find these checklists and more online at http://www.movers.net.
