Making a checklist is the best way to prepare for a move. You will want to write everything down so that as you complete an item, you can tick it off your list. Make your list has detailed as possible, as it is easy to forget small things on moving day. As you progress through your list, stop and assess the current situation.

Hiring a professional moving business is one of the smartest things you can do. Moving is stressful. Hiring professional movers takes some of the stress out of your move. They will load and unload your items for you. They will also pack your items if you choose to go that route. Hiring a professional mover is especially smart if you have large items that will need to be moved. Large beds, pianos, and appliances can be hard to move without the proper equipment. Your moving company has the right equipment and tools to handle large item moves.
Before you move, it is important that you declutter your home. Start in one room and work your way through them all. You will be surprised at how much you really own. If you haven’t used an item in a while, throw it away. This will make packing a lot easier. It will also save money as you will need less moving space and packing supplies. Once you have decluttered, sell or donate the items.
Transfer your utilities ahead of moving day. You can call most companies and set a date for your utilities to be transferred. This will make your moving day a lot easier and stress-free. By having your electricity, water, cable, and internet transferred you can focus on more important things.
