No matter how much planning you put into your move, there’s always bound to be a little bit of chaos. It’s just the nature of things. Even with the help of a local moving company, packing up all the contents of your home and moving them to a new location is a huge task. Plus, you have to get your family members settled and adjusted.

Whether you’re moving across York County to Fort Mill or moving to the other side of the country, organization is the best way to keep your move on track. Put these items on your moving checklist and start working on them as soon as you find out you’re relocating.

  1. Research local moving companies. Hiring the right residential mover makes all the difference. Verify that any mover you consider is fully licensed, bonded, and insured. Ask for written estimates and make sure all fees are disclosed.
  2. Sort through your belongings. It’s never too early to start narrowing down the items you want to take with you when you move. Make lists and start filling bags and boxes with things you want to keep, things you can donate, and things that are old or broken that can be trashed.
  3. Start making lists of what needs to be done. You’re sure to create lots of to-do lists. Keep them organized in a notebook or binder so all of your moving information is in one place.

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for more information on how to prepare as your moving day draws closer.
