First, find a good mover.

Hiring a trusted, professional moving company is critical for the success of your home move. You’re going to need to find a properly licensed and adequately insured mover that’s also reputable and affordable. All this sounds like a very tough task but in fact, it isn’t that difficult at all. Simply give the experts at 1st Choice Movers a call! We are a trusted name in professional moving and we are properly licensed and insured!

Get rid of unwanted items.

A great way to limit unnecessary packing when moving into a new house is by reducing the number of items you’re taking with you. Take only the things that you like and need and intend to use in the foreseeable future.

Stock up on packing materials.

Secure the major packing supplies: many cardboard boxes of various sizes, packing paper, bubble wrap, packing tape and a set of color markers. At 1st Choice Movers, our Moving Box Program can help supply you with everything you need to pack for your big move.

Transfer utilities and change your address.

One important thing to do when moving into a new home is to transfer the utilities between the two homes – electricity, water, gas, cable TV, Internet, etc. And, it is best to change your address before the day of the move so that no mail delivery interruption occurs during that transitional period.

Ensure safety on moving day.

Don’t forget to prepare your pet and children for the big day. Moving day can be pretty chaotic so it is a good idea to have a safe place for them to stay, like with family, while moving takes place. Or, keep your loved ones away from any dangerous zones, preferably in a room far from the traffic. And, the best possible way to stay 100% safe when moving is to hire experienced movers so that you can stay away from the packing and moving.

Once everything is moved in and the house is secure it’s time to unpack! You should start unpacking from the rooms you use on a daily basis and work your way towards the ones you will occupy much less frequently.
