Getting Organized for Your Move in Fremont
Professional moving companies will tell you, being organized is a must when you’re prepping for a move. From labelling all your boxes to being sure you have the right materials for the job at hand, moving is a game that works best when you’re well prepared for whatever might come your way. Here are some suggestions for getting organized in the weeks leading up to your Fremont move.
Organize Your Moving Timeline
Anywhere from 6-8 weeks before your move, you should start doing an inventory and purge anything that you immediately see will need to go. This could be that junky old lounge chair that you’re planning to replace or outdated clothes that no longer fit.
Four to six weeks before your move, start calling utility companies to arrange for service changes and research professional moving companies who work in Fremont. Check out your moving insurance to be sure it will cover all of your items.
When your move is only 2-4 weeks in the future, you’ll want to start packing items that you don’t use very often, such as off-season clothes or additional sets of dishes. Be sure to mark and label every box so there won’t be surprises once you move in!
In the last few weeks before your move, it’s time to start defrosting your fridge or freezer and cleaning them out. Pack your valuable items and create a “first night bag” that has important items such as pet food, a set of plates and flatware for each family member and any daily medicines that you’ll need. Don’t forget the toilet paper and paper towels!
You’re nearly ready! Sure, there are lots of small tasks in between, but if you can keep roughly to this schedule, you should be ready to go on moving day. Need assistance with your move?
