Am I Ready to Move?

Itís time to get moving!  An efficient, well-managed move not only saves you time and money, it can also make the transition to your new home easier and more pleasant for your whole family.  That is why the Council of Residential Specialists offers these proven tips to help make your move a trouble-free experience from start to finish.

The Before You Move Checklist

Hire the movers.  Retain a reliable moving company as early as possible.  Be clear about your needs and expectations, and make sure you understand the companyís policies.

At Rich Kelley Realty we recommend Karen Cole at Sourdough Express.

Take a room by room inventory of your home.  This list will help you when it is time to pack.

Organize your belongings.  Clean and sort your possessions and set aside unwanted items for a garage sale, your favorite charity or the garbage pick up

Arrange for the shut off or transfer of your phone and other utilities.

Contact your bank and transfer the contents of your safe deposit box to a bank closer to your new home.

Complete the change of address kit at your post office.

Give your friends and relatives your new address and phone number.

Obtain copies of all medical and dental records, school transcripts and birth certificates.

Packing Tips

Label contents on the outside of each box and indicate where it will go in your new home.

Write FRAGILE in large, legible letters on boxes that contain breakable and / or valuable items.

Pack all breakables and liquids separately.

Seal all medicines and other containers to prevent leaking and move them in leak proof bags or containers.

To conserve space, fill drawers with light items such as shirts, underwear, blankets, pillowcases, etc.

Transport your plants and pets personally, if possible.  Make sure pets are kept in a well-ventilated cage.

Hard to replace or extremely valuable items such as jewelry, documents or artwork should also remain under your personal supervision
