How To Make Your Move Easier – The Wine Trail Properties Way

When you arrive to the point of actually knowing you will move, everything becomes chaotic in a bittersweet way.  You are thrilled about where you are going, mapping out the floor plan, thinking about all of the different rooms and what you may need.  And then there is the chore of what to do with everything at the old house (your current home) and where it  will be going in the new house.  I have supplied you with a moving list put together by a mortgage broker Aaron Lazemby of Fairort Mortgage ( his contact info is listed below).  I would take this list and enter all of the needed items into your calendar and if you have a phone calendar, even better.  Y0u may want to add or delete from the list as needed.

Now you need to move forward in a moving mode.  By this I mean, every time you move something,or pick up something, determine its need.  Start sorting things into groups:

1. Taking with

2. Donating

3. Garage sale

Start putting containers in all of the rooms to drop things into.  Now set a date for a moving sale and begin to stage the items where you will be displaying them such as a garage.   Make up an event on Facebook, make a large enough sign for in front of your home and place an ad in the local paper.  Then if you happen to be our clients,  let us know when you will be having your sale and we will let you borrow our A-frame signs to display your sale.

 

MOVING CHECKLIST:
AS SOON AS YOU KNOW YOUR NEW ADDRESS:

1)       Notify post office of move and fill out change of address cards – you can do this online now

2)       Notify magazines and newspapers of new address – do this as you receive them and can be done online

3)       Notify insurance company

4)       Change address on all charge accounts that you are going to keep, or close the ones you no longer need

 

30-15 DAYS BEFORE YOU MOVE:

1)       Call a mover and obtain an estimate

2)       Arrange for packing cartons if the mover does not supply them

3)       Prepare inventory of goods to be moved – take photos when possible
