Moving across town is challenging. Moving to an entirely new city can be stressful. There is a lot to remember during your Georgina move; the timing has to be perfect, and you have to learn how to get around a whole new set of streets. When you are saying goodbye to your old community, there are some things you need to remember before you say hello to your new one.
You Can’t Take It With You
In this case, we are talking about the food in your refrigerator. Any move of more than a few hours is going to make moving perishable food items impossible. A few months before your Georgina move, start using up all of the things in your freezer.
During your last few weeks in your home, you may want to shop on a daily basis or only buy a limited amount on a weekly basis to limit the waste. Carrying canned goods can also take up a lot of space in a moving truck. Consider donating unused items to a food bank.
Make Sure to Transfer
Sit down and make a list of things that are particular to your location. Things like gym memberships, social clubs and library cards should all be cancelled. Banks (if a branch is present in your new city), utility services and postal addresses should all be transferred your new home. Make sure to change your address with any organization that is going to remain the same so you don’t have personal information sent to the wrong place.
Consider Your Healthcare
Moving to a new city means that you are going to have all new doctors and hospitals. This means getting copies of your medical records to bring with you. This can be a lengthy process and might be critical should something happen in your new town.
Hang onto a copy of your old doctor’s number. This can come in handy and become a time saver if you need to have information transferred quickly and directly to a new doctor or hospital. Remember to cancel any recurring prescriptions at your local pharmacies and transfer them to pharmacies near your new home.
Spend Some Quality Time
Don’t be in a hurry to move away and forget to spend some quality time doing the things that you liked to do in your old home. There are going to be aspects of your old city that you are going to miss and now is the perfect time to experience them before you move. Make it a family and friend affair to ensure that you get closure in your old home and are ready for a fresh set of experiences in your new one.
