Often Forgot Moving To-Do List

There are dozens of checklists to be found online for undertaking a move but we’ve found there are some things people just don’t remember to do. Here are a few of our top missed moving items that you should remember when you’re going through your next move:

Get new cable/satellite: Everyone remembers to turn on their water and electricity but don’t forget that it usually takes a day or two to get your media rolling. Contact direct star tv or your cable company to make sure you’re all set up for the new place.

Cancel your newspaper: If you’ve got a running subscription to a local newspaper you’re going to want to cancel it or change the address if you’re staying the same city. It can cost you money and let people know you’re not in your home.

Contact your insurance company: If you’ve got homeowner’s or renter’s insurance be sure to call ahead and change the address before you move in. Your policy won’t cover any moving day accidents if you’ve get to update the information.

Notify for Your Change of Address: The move from one home to another is stressful enough as it is, let alone once you get settled, trying to notify everyone of your change of address. Even though your life is in a whirlwind as you try to move your belongings from one place to the next, life still goes on and bills still come. So here is a list of who you need to notify of your change of address: mortgage company, or old landlord, all banks that you have accounts at, electric company, gas company, propane company, phone company, cell phone company, internet provider, cable company, and or satelite company, water bill, usually city office, employer, car, home ,rental, health, life insurance companies.I found some more information here. Next we cover all credit card companies, car loans, personal loans, recreational vehicle loans, other mortgages on other homes. Also, your township, county, or city offices for property tax reasons. If you own a business, thats another long list, similar to the above list. Now after you have done the above, there is all your family and friends that you like to keep in contact with, your church or place of worship, your accountant, lawyer, and your childrens school. Keep in mind this list is daunting, but take it one step at a time and everthing will work out fine.

Ask for Referrals: Are you making a major move in the near future? It can be a time of confusion and stress. You need the help of professionals to get you through this time. There are lots of people who would like to help you. Realtors are in abundance and moving companies make lots of promises. It is hard to decide who to choose to help you on this adventure. Start by looking on the internet and in the local yellow pages to see who is available and what services that they have to offer. You can then start doing your homework. It takes a little bit of time but it is worth it in the end.

Most reputable businesses will be happy to give you a list of references. References can come in the form of referrals. These are people who have used their services in the past and can tell you what the experience was like. Although it is easy to over look this step, do not compromise. You will be happier in the long run and will have security that the business or person you are dealing with can carry out the promises that they are making to you. So remember to Ask for Referrals: That’s the Best Reference.
