With 39 years of experience, Easy Movers, Inc. can provide you with some practical tips to make your upcoming move a little less stressful. We suggest that you start the moving process at least 4 weeks before your scheduled move date. This will provide you with plenty of time to complete all of the details that accompany moving.

Countdown to a successful move with these tips

  • Go online www.usps.com and file a change of address form with the post office

  • Notify creditors, magazines and book or music clubs of your new address

  • Retrieve your family’s medical records and ask doctors and dentists to recommend a colleague in your new city

  • Decide which items can be sold, discarded, or donated to charity

  • Notify the local utilities at your origin or destination to have service turned off and on as needed. Visit http://www2.whitefence.com/ to do this online in just minutes

  • Notify your children’s schools, your church, and other organizations of your impending move

4 weeks

  • Decide which items you will be packing yourself

  • Sketch out a general floor plan of your new home to determine the placement of furnishings

  • Make a list of important names, addresses, and phone numbers, and be sure to take your phone book with you

  • Notify Easy Movers, Inc. if anything about your move has changed (dates, etc.).

  • Make arrangements to move your plants and pets

  • Contact your bank and transfer the contents of your safety deposit box

3 weeks

  • If shipping an automobile, top off fluids like oil and antifreeze, but make plans to have the gas tank less than half-full

  • Plan your own trip to your new home and make the necessary travel arrangements for your family

  • Dispose of flammable items such as gasoline, matches, bleach, cleaning fluids, and aerosol cans

  • Discontinue regular services like newspaper delivery, trash pickup, and lawn service

2 weeks

  • Arrange for the payment of your Easy Movers, Inc. driver at destination. Unless your move is being billed to your employer, payment by cash, certified check or money order is required before unloading

  • Transfer bank accounts so you don’t lose any interest

  • Make arrangements to disconnect/connect local phone service at your origin/destination

  • Determine which items you will be taking with you (jewelry, etc.). Pack and set them aside in a designated area

  • Use up all frozen foods or give them away

  • Drain the fuel from lawn mowers and other gas-powered equipment

1 week

  • Pack a box of things you’ll need as soon as you arrive at your new home (food, medications, etc.) Take this box with you, or have your Easy Movers, Inc. driver load it last and unload it first

  • This is usually the day packing is done; verify all packing services have been performed before signing for them

  • Defrost, clean and dry your refrigerator

1 day before

  • Plan to be at your current home when our driver arrives and throughout the loading of your shipment

  • If you’re not able to be there, make sure the driver has the name and number of the person you’ve designated to oversee the process

  • Check the condition of your goods as they are inventoried and loaded

  • Make a final tour of your home/property and verify that nothing has been overlooked

  • Sign the Bill of Lading, double-checking that your new address and phone number are correct

  • Lock all doors and windows and turn off all switches
