Our Moving Checklist

Things to do Before Moving

A few weeks before moving: more steps will need to be taken. Visit your doctor or health care provider to obtain new, written prescriptions for everyone in your family. You’ll want your prescriptions to be valid for as long as possible before moving to a new area. Have your child’s school send their transcripts to your new neighborhood’s school. Once you’ve established who your new physicians will be, have your old doctor deliver your medical records to them. Transfer veterinarian records, too, if you have a pet.

Call your current utility companies to initiate a transfer of services such as electric, gas, water, phone, internet, etc. An apartment move-in checklist can slightly differ: If you’re moving into an apartment complex that will require you to sign up with specific companies for utilities, communicate with customer service representatives to register for service and schedule installation dates. Identify the nearest locations of bank branches and compile all of your relevant financial information. It can also be a good idea to advise state and federal agencies, like the department of motor vehicles and tax bureaus, of your move at this time.

Two days before you move into your new home: ensure that your electricity and phone lines are operational: Call the electric and phone companies to verify that accounts have been successfully transferred to your name before checking them off your apartment moving checklist. Any great checklist for moving should encourage you to prepare your vehicle for travel: Be sure to place road supplies in your vehicle and keep your permanent, important documents with you while you make your way to your new home.

Take trips to your new region of residence as often as you can before moving permanently. This can help you acclimate to your new residence and make you more comfortable on the day of the move. These trips can be especially beneficial to children and pets, who may need time to become accustomed to their new home.

Many moving checklists have a large part of them devoted to finding reputable moving companies and packing your own belongings. Luckily, we at My Guys Moving & Storage have done the heavy lifting for you: Our movers are licensed, bonded, and insured, and we offer a variety of services, including packing, so you can concentrate on other facets of your relocation.

Plan for Success With a Moving Checklist

A successful move requires a great deal of planning. The responsibilities and tasks that need to be completed can be compounded if you intend to move out of state. Thankfully, creating and keeping up a simple moving check list can significantly reduce the amount of stress that you experience as you are setting up a home in any new location. At My Guys Moving & Storage, our moving service is designed to do the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what matters: your new life. The following guidelines will help you develop a thorough checklist for moving.

To experience a hassle-free move, you’ll have to check off certain things on your moving checklist as soon as you know you’re going to relocate. As soon as you know your new address, contact all of your health care providers, including insurance companies, pharmacies, and doctors, to update your contact information. Ask for referrals to new doctors or providers if you intend to use different ones once you’ve settled into the new neighborhood. If you have children, get in touch with your child’s current and future schools to advise them of the move. Get copies of your child’s immunization records in case you need them. Parents of children with special needs should contact health facilities, relevant medical equipment establishments, and special-education resources to ensure a smooth transition. The state’s department of education and department of public health should be a good place to start if you are moving to another state. Research your new state and specific community as much as you can. Get into contact with friends or family in the area to advise them of your plans, and be open to help that they may offer. File a change of address form with the post office, and update the address on your subscriptions, memberships, and credit accounts about a month before your move.
