Helpful Planning Tips for Your Next Florida Move

When you properly plan and prepare for your move, you can expect your moving experience to be a smooth and hassle-free one. If you decide to start packing and moving at the last minute though, then you may be setting yourself up for a stressful moving experience. That is why, in this blog post, the experienced residential movers at A-Turner Moving & Storage will go over some helpful advance planning tips for an upcoming move that way you can stay on track for your move. 

Begin Packing At Your Home

Before your moving day, you should create a moving schedule that includes the days in which each room in your home will be packed. When packing your home, you should also rid your home of any excess items and perishables that way you can save on moving costs. Dispose of any perishable items in your fridge and kitchen and sell or donate items you no longer need. 

Contact Moving Companies Ahead Of Time

If you plan on hiring a team of local or long-distance movers, be sure you contact them well in advance of your targeted moving date. Booking a moving company well in advance can help you avoid any potential delays and secure a booking day. You can also ask for a pricing estimate that way you can compare the rates and decide which moving company is more within your budget. 

Set Up Utilities

Setting up your utilities in your new home is important because you don’t want to arrive only to not have any access to water or electricity. So, make sure you end any existing service in your current home and schedule a set up day for service in your new home to avoid any frustration or delays. 

Have Someone To Watch Your Pets & Kids

Moving day can be a stressful time for your pets and children. That is why, before your moving day, make sure you arrange for someone you know or a daycare to watch them. Doing so can help alleviate any stress and nerves as much as possible for them. Plus, it moves them out of harm’s way since there are likely a lot of items that are going to be moved around in your home. 

Enjoy A Smoother Move

Any stress and anxiety when it comes to a move can be reduced when you properly plan ahead. By following these moving tips, you can have a more manageable moving schedule that you can follow which leads to a hassle-free moving experience.
