The most important thing is to set a date to move out/ move in beforehand. Planning everything in advance is essential, in order to ensure a ductile move. Moreover, look for friends or relatives, who are able to lend you a hand, because moving is a hard job. Arrange specific days, where you can effectively use up the whole day to pack or complete the administrative stuff.

2) Notices

DON’T FORGET THIS PART!!! People tend to forget to notify banks, post offices, creditors or power companies about your move. Therefore I suggest handling this personal arrangements and notices as soon as possible. Hence, you will avoid the hassle to give notice to different departments and people in the last minute. This will allow you to accelerate the process of changing address and clean up any bills, which are still due.

NEVER wait until the last minute to contact those moving companies. Make sure the trucks are available for your set moving date and maybe you will be able to negotiate a reasonable price beforehand. However, if you rent a truck yourself, ensure that you have enough helpers lined up.

Then again you can hire a man and van service, who can help you with removal from furniture to electronic appliances. For instance, outstanding items will be taken care of by this team. The appropriate items are recycled and toxic items are disposed instantly. You might want to get this over with in advance to avoid any stress at the end.

Consequently, have a floor plan ready of your new place, in order to help the movers to unload the stuff easily and efficiently. Make sure you have the keys already to avoid unnecessary waste of time as well.

Finally, the date arrives and you do your final checks. Make sure the house is clean, pack your essential living items and get on the truck. Once you are on that truck you can begin a new chapter in your life. Good Luck!
