Moving Guide

 Are you stressed out at the thought of moving? Relocating can be overwhelming, but by planning ahead and breaking it down into manageable steps, you can ensure a SMOOTH transition into your new home.

First steps: Make a list of the items you plan on moving to your new home, items for storage, and items you want to dispose of/garage sale. Hire a professional moving company after getting several estimates (make sure they are registered with the state of Florida as a mover of household goods).

Next : Separate any items, medical records, prescriptions, important documents, that need to remain in your procession. You may not want  these valuables packed in the moving truck.

If you plan on doing you own pack up start several weeks prior to your moving date. That way its not so overwhelming. Use actual moving boxes to pack your items. It may cost a little extra, but it will save time and money on load up and unload. Make sure all your fragile items(stemware, china, breakables) are wrapped properly with packing paper, bubble wrap, or towels. Be sure to label all boxes clearly and mark breakables as fragile, this will speed up the load and unload process.

Lastly: Make sure someone is present during all aspects of the moving process. Plan properly for the unload by having a idea of where items will be placed in your new home. This will make the unload more efficient.
