The first step to a hassle-free move is organization. Planning ahead will help ensure that the move goes smoothly, reducing the stress and worry that can mount in the last days before Atlanta moving trucks arrive.
“The importance of staying organized and planning ahead cannot be overemphasized,”
Setting a timeline is one way to be sure that you are prepared before moving day. For instance, four to six weeks before a move is a good time to begin notifying utilities, such as power or water companies, of an upcoming address change. Banks, credit card companies, doctors, magazines and newspapers should also be informed, to avoid confusion later on.
Two to three weeks before the move, moving dates should be confirmed or adjusted depending on the situation. Confirm the number of items that will be moved and make arrangements for car transportation, if necessary.
In the final weeks leading up to a move, arrangements for any additional travel items, such as plants or pets, should be made. If moving out of state, local ordinances may require health certificates and rabies inoculations for pets; it is a good idea to take your pets to the vet before the move to avoid any issues that may arise.
Then final days of a move should be used to finish the packing process, not sitting on the phone with a mover or the power company making last second arrangements.
When packing for a move, use special moving boxes. The boxes you may find at a grocery store are not as strong, and your belongings could be damaged if the box is dropped. Label each box according to room and contents for easier unpacking at the new location.
