When you’re planning a relocation, it’s likely you are making a ton of to-do lists. While you may remember to include large tasks such as packing, little details often slip through the cracks. As the leading San Jose household movers, we’ve seen it all, and that experience benefits you. Check out the three most forgotten details when moving, so you can avoid the associated hassle and headaches.
Notifying People About Your Move
You know you need to tell people about your move, yet it’s surprisingly one of the most forgotten details during relocation. Magazine subscriptions, recurring deliveries of medication, and credit card companies might not be too hard to remember, but you’d be surprised at how often friends and family are forgotten. When you confirm your moving date, let people know that you will be moving, and once you’re settled in your new house, send out “we’ve moved” cards containing your new address.
When you get a rhythm with packing, it’s way too easy to forget that you don’t want to pack every single article of clothing or bath towel. To avoid packing things you’ll need right away, create an “essentials” box and label it clearly. Some things to include may be:
● Paper Products - Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, etc...
● Pet Food
● Over-the-Counter Medication
Anything you use daily is a good candidate for your essentials box, with the exception of prescription medication, which you should keep with you during the move.
Records and Documents
Unless you’re moving down the street or across town, beginning life in a new location means finding new schools, doctors, and other relevant professionals. Make your transition easier by compiling a folder or binder containing all necessary records and documents for your family. Not only will this include things like medical, dental, and school records, but also other items such as contracts, product warranties, and paid bills.
