Transfer Utilities Early
One of the most often tasks put off until last minute during the moving process is transferring your utilities to your new address. To avoid going without Internet for a few days, or owing your previous/current renters a day’s worth of their electricity bill, remember to contact your service providers in advance. This will allow you to schedule utility transfers in a timely manner, saving you money and stress in the long run.
If saving money isn’t a big enough motivator for you, think about how you might miss your favorite T.V. show if your cable isn’t turned on in time.
Cleanup & Downsize
Call me crazy, but cleaning up before a move is the only part I enjoy about moving. It gives you a chance to take inventory of your possessions, and whether or not they are necessary to your household. This also give you the opportunity to sell or donate items that may be taking up space. Getting rid of such items will also make your move easier as there will be less lifting for the Gainesville movers and less unpacking for you!
Cleaning up after all your belongings have been moved to your new home is also important. Some renters will bill you a cleanup fee (or take it out of your deposit) if you leave your previous residence dirty. Be sure to vacuum and give those counter tops one last wipe-down before turning in your keys. And while you’re at it, make sure you didn’t leave anything behind.
Movers Are Lifesavers
To make your life easier, choose a Gainesville moving company that offers fast and affordable moving services. Such services can save you a lot of time and even back pain in some cases. Gainesville moving services include loading and unloading your belongings, as well delivery to your new address. With services such as this, moving becomes more pleasant and allows you to focus on your new surroundings rather than worrying about how you’re going to get your couch up 3 flights of stairs with just you and a your partner.
Go ahead and enjoy your move!
