- Create a To-Do list
Make a list of the items you intend to move and label them properly. This is placed at the top of our ultimate checklist because it will serve as a guide for you in the course of the moving process. A list of items that you currently own will help you identify items that require special care and valuable belongings. Setting out reminders on devices of dates to accomplish various tasks will relieve a lot of stress as the process unfolds. Do well to keep to these reminders
- Create a Moving Budget.
We all want to relax and have things sorted out professionally, but this can only work by setting the right priorities, set aside specific amounts to cover your relocation process and try to stay within your budget.
- Decide on the Mode of Relocation.
Make a decision on your mode of relocation, will you be moving personally or outsourcing the process. You do not have to necessarily do everything as there are companies that handle this, thereby making the whole process easier. It is wise to make this decision early enough.
- Do Your Research.
Dedicate time to do some research on your new community and places of interest in the area. Explore the area and take note of specific areas like the mall, hospitals, schools, gym etc.
- Clean Your New Place.
We will all agree that nobody wants to move into an untidy place for the first time. it is very important to have your new home or space professionally cleaned, you want to step in and see it all sparkling and looking every bit new. A highly recommended cleaning company is Don and Dusted Cleaning Services (www.donanddusted.com) .
- Request Time off Work.
Your undivided attention will be required in the relocation process; it is ideal that you pre inform the necessary authorities before the set date of relocation. We recommend Fridays, as it would avail you some time to unpack and rest after the process.
- Settle Outstanding Bills
Outstanding bills at your old place should also be settled before relocation. You want to move into your new space on a clean slate with zero worries about unpaid bills.
We all tend to have some form of attachment to certain items, in the course of relocation do well to get rid of items you no longer have use for. Declutter is the spice of life.
- Inform the Necessary Authorities
Update the necessary organizations on the change of address especially when they serve as your postal address, e.g., bank, insurance company etc.
- 10. Pack an Essential Box.
The relocation day can be overwhelming, we strongly advice that an essentials box or first night box with everything you’ll be needing for the first 24hrs be packed up. This will save you the stress of worrying about what to get and where to get them from. It is also very important that you have some extra cash on you as this might come in handy for unforeseen expenses.
