7 Relocation Mistakes to Avoid

Slide 2:

1: Not researching first One major mistake to avoid making is not researching the area/city you are moving to. Becoming familiar with your new community is important, including locating the nearest grocery store, gas station and checking out the schools in the area if needed.  2: Assuming You Have Enough Time You never have as much time as you think you do, it’s a great idea to put together a timetable for your move and then stick to it. How far in advance should you plan? Ideally allow 1 – 2 months of prep time so you can factor in the delays, and other issues, that can and do happen. .

3: Rushed Rentals Do not rush into renting your old house or apartment to the first person that shows any interest. This is a decision you’ll have months, maybe years, to regret. A good tenant will give you the peace of mind you need when you’re not going to be physically able to check on your property every other week. A bad tenant could potentially cost you thousands of dollars. 4: Forgetting Your Bare Necessities Anyone who has ever relocated to a new city, only to realize that they forgot the single most important item in their entire home, will guess what we’re going to say next: Never pack all your important personal belongings in boxes you won’t see for several days or weeks. What things should you keep within arm’s reach during your journey? Credit cards, cash, checks, your driver’s license, a favorite blanket and toys for your kids, a favorite toy for your pet, some basic toiletries, and medication you might need, a map, and a clean change of clothes.  You can add to this list if you like – whatever it takes to avoid this particular headache.

. 5: Not timing it right To help lower the cost of relocating, you may want to avoid moving during the summer and at the beginning and end of the month. The site notes you may be able to negotiate the costs of moving services for less busy times.  6: Planning For Pets Unless you’re made of stone you’re not going to leave your pets behind, so that means a trip to the vets to make sure they’re up to date on all their shots. Also, don’t forget to ask the vet for any tips for making the journey as comfortable as possible for your best friend. Your pet that is, not the vet. Well, unless your vet is your best friend, but they’re unlikely to move to another city with you.

7: Choosing the Relocation Company Casually Even if you’ve decided to use a relocating service provider, you still can’t just pick anyone. You need to evaluate and measure all your options so as to ensure that your stuff is only handled by skilled and accomplished professionals. It isn’t uncommon for movers to ruin a piece of equipment or furniture through rough handling. Moreover, movers can also end up losing things during the relocation process. If you’re relocating your business, then you need to find a professional and reliable moving company. Considering multiple options will also be useful because it will allow you to find more economical alternatives.
