Moving To a New Home: How To Make It Hassle Free (Well Almost)
It can be a nerve-racking time when we are moving out of our home. We've been so comfortable and now it's time to pack up and go. There is so much detail keeping track of what we have to do to leave, and what we have to do to arrive at the new home. It comes down to giving yourself enough time and paying attention to detail.

If you are renting look at your rental agreement to see what is the required notice. Many landlords want 30 days. If you need more time, perhaps the landlord will prorate the additional days that you request. If you are selling your home, make sure you have a clear understanding of your responsibility is in moving out and handing over the keys to the buyer on a target date. Any repairs required for closing that you agreed to do could detract from other chores that need to be done.

Start shopping early for any rental truck or moving company services that you need. Local moves may not require extended notice, but moving companies may take reservations as long as six weeks out. So start sorting and packing early.

Utility companies including water, electricity, gas, cable, trash and telephone all need to be scheduled for shut off the day after you move. These services should be scheduled for connection at your new residence the day before you arrive. You should start making these calls 30 days before the move.

Notify the post office of your new address. Mail address change notices to persons and companies with which you do business.
Moving is a hectic process. It also can be exciting. By giving yourself enough time to pull all these details together you have more time to enjoy setting up your new home.
