There are a lot of things to remember when you are moving out of one home and into another. Having a checklist of things that you need to get done before you move can be very helpful to ensure that you don’t forget to do some things. If you are looking for some important things to put on your moving out checklist, Bradford movers has compiled a list of items that you should not forget to do!
Get Your Address Changed
You aren’t going to want your mail going to your old address, so you are going to need to update anyone who mails you on a regular basis with your new address. You can easily do this online with most of the major companies that you do business with. Make sure not to do it too early, as you may start to receive mail at your new address before you live there. This could lead to you missing some critical information.
Remember to set up a forwarding address with the post office as well. This will ensure that any mail that gets mistakenly sent to your old address will find you at your new one.
Moving is a great time to go through your old home and remove all the clutter. Having a moving sale is also a great way to let the neighborhood know that you are moving, and it gives you an opportunity to say goodbye to some people you may not see on a regular basis. Take a look around your home for all of those things you simply don’t use anymore, as well as anything that might be broken or unusable. None of these things need to head to your new home with you.
Get Your Services Canceled
Gas, water, power, lawn service and anything else that is specific to the home you are currently in should be canceled. If your old home is not going to be immediately occupied, and you own it, you may want to leave some of the essential utilities on for the purpose of showing the home to potential buyers.
Don’t forget services that are specific to the town in which you live. This might mean library cards, gym memberships or anything else local. You should let them know that you are moving and cancel any recurring memberships you might have with them.
Hire Professional Cleaners
Your old home is going to need to be cleaned once you get everything out. If you are not going to have time to do it, and you have the means available to you, consider hiring professional cleaners. They can be a valuable time saving resource. They may also be able to get your security deposit back for you if you are a renter.
