Being a busy bee is never bad but when you start to embark on other projects, it can become overwhelming. Add moving into the mix of a busy schedule, and it is no easy undertaking. Not only are you packing your life and moving to a completely new place but you have to coordinate everything from utility service changes to ordering moving trucks. Luckily, the team at Modern Concierge is here to help! With quite a few experiences helping clients move, we complied a few tips to have a stress free move.

Book a moving company early on.

Don’t wait last minute to book a moving company. You’d be surprised how quickly these companies book up and you want to make sure you are going with the best of the best to handle your familial treasures. Do your research and ask around for quotes. Too busy to pack? A lot of these companies will also do the packing for you! All you have to do is ask.

Pre-plan to shut off and reconnect your utility services.

Take the time to pre-plan shutting off utility services at your old home and pre-book service connection at your new home. Sometimes companies require a few weeks in advance for service connection and the earlier on you book, the easier it will be when things start to ramp up closer to the move.

Be organized.

Take the time to create an itinerary for your move. This will help you keep track of the utility service changes, to coordinate movers, and to book your pre-closing site visits. It can be something as simple as creating a word document, organizing it by date, and listing everything that will be done each day. This will help you understand what is happening leading up to the move and leave you less stressed at the start.

Quick, key things to consider when moving:

  1. Label items and boxes properly.
  2. Strategically organize boxes to be put on the truck. This way you can unpack the house in the order you’d like. 
  3. Keep a running list of expenses to compare future moves
  4. Donate items you don’t need

Moving can be hard, but if you take the time to plan it out accordingly, the transition from old to new will be a lot smoother. Planning a move? Let us help you! Contact us at info@modernconcierge.com to learn more.
