Once They Choose a Moving Company, Atlanta Customers Have a Timeline

All moves, regardless of distance, require preparation well in advance. That’s why it’s so important to create a timeline the moment you decide you are making a move. The earlier you start planning, the more smoothly things will go leading up to, and on, moving day.
Two Months Before the Move

 * Create a moving binder as a reference tool that you will use to store important information and your To Do Lists.

 * Take Inventory of everything that you are taking with you.

 * Book the services of your chosen moving company. Atlanta relocation experts also provide storage solutions. If you require storage, now is the time to inquire about this service.

 * Notify doctors, dentists, utilities, etc. Even if you are remaining in Atlanta, you need to advise every one of your new address.

 * Start packing! Sort your belongings to see what you want to keep, sell or donate.

Two Weeks Before the Move

 * Clean out storage areas such as the attic, garage and shed.

 * Arrange for someone to look after the kids and pets on moving day.

 * Refill any prescriptions or have them transferred to a pharmacy in your new neighborhood.

 * Dispose of paints and solvents at a hazardous waste drop off.

 * Try to use up the food in your freezer.

 * Keep packing!

Two Days Before the Move

 * Defrost and clean the fridge and freezer.

 * Make sure you have an Essentials Box with everything you will need for the first 24 hours in your new home — toothpaste, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, snacks, cellphone and charger, etc.

 * Take furniture apart (if possible) so it will be ready for the moving company. Atlanta moving professionals could do this for you on moving day, but you’ll save time and money if you just do it beforehand. You can pretend you’re camping and sleep on a mattress on the floor!

It’s Moving Day!

 * Give the place one final cleaning,

 * Take a final look around to ensure you haven’t forgotten anything.

 * Lock up and leave the keys where you need to leave them.

 * SMILE! Today you are taking the first step on an exciting new journey.
