Tips for making the BIG move when Buying a new home

 The time is finally here for the big move.  You find your dream home and it is yours. I am going to try to help you feel more comfortable about all you need to do to make this change go smoothly, from selecting the moving company to making this home really yours.

It just makes good sense to get more than one estimate.  Research tells us three is the magic number.  Another good idea is to have the moving company representative come to your home and do your estimate.  A great moving company will have many ideas and suggestions for you for your move.   Apparently research has also shown us  taking the cheapest quote is not always the way to go .   Make your decision by comparing the service provided and who you believe is going to work best with you and for  you in your move.


I have created some helpful items for your move decisions.


1. Most of us desire to move on the weekend.  Since everyone feels that way it is easy to see why if you can move on  a weekday you will save money on your move. 


2. Packing can be an emotional time.  It is better to leave the packing to the professionals.  They won't become emotional about the items they are packing.  For instance, packing a yearbook from high school you are tempted to  sit down to reminisce about the good ole days.  


3.Anything that won't fit in your new home or that you have decided to replace needs to go now.  You can sell on a buy sell trade site or just toss the item.  Another idea would be to donate to an organization like Goodwill. 


4. No need to purchase boxes.  There are lots of avenues to get your boxes.  Grocery stores, liquor stores and fast food restaurants have great boxes as well.  Sometimes the best way to get boxes is from your moving company, as a part of the moving package deal.  Many times that will be a requirement to insure your items arrive safely and in tact. 


Let's face it, moving is stressful.  Keep your eye on the prize. After all a new home is so exciting!   By following these suggestions you can at least be prepared and take some of the stress out of the move.
