Moving Checklists

Before you start packing your boxes, read on to discover a few tips that will help you enjoy an easy, stress-free move.

Prepare a Budget

From hiring movers and setting up utilities to travel, the costs can start to rise very quickly.

Make a checklist of every cost you expect to incur including gas, shipping, hotel stays, and security deposits for your new place. 

If your move isn’t going to happen for a few months, cut back on your spending and put away some money each week/month for your moving costs. 

Aside from your initial moving costs, you should also factor in things like the cost of living in your budget. These costs can vary by region so you may be surprised at the difference between your new location and where you’re currently living.

Choose the Right Moving Company

Ask several different movers about their rates, and make sure you tell them where you’re planning to move.

The cost to move to a different state is typically much higher than if you were to stick within your local area. Take this into consideration when you’re getting quotes since movers have to pay for fuel, labor, and other transportation costs across state lines.

Read reviews of several moving companies thoroughly and ask family and friends for any recommendations. If other customers are happy with a specific moving company, then you likely will be, too. Once you schedule a date and time with the movers, you’ll feel a sense of relief that this crucial component is checked off your list.

Do Not Stress on Moving Day!

If you’re moving to another state, there’s no need to stress with these simple tips. Start planning ahead as far in advance as possible so that you won’t feel pressure when the big day arrives.
