Helpful Moving Hints
Some Moving Tips to Keep in Mind:
- Notify your telephone,
electric, gas, water, and credit card Companies.
- Forward necessary
mail to your new address. Discontinue service on a specific
- Notify former employers.
This will make tax time less taxing.
- Be there and give
direction. Let them know what you want loaded first and loaded
- Get a copy of your
inventory sheet from the foreman. Double check his notations
about existing damage to your goods.
- Have your insurance
plan readily available. Hopefully you will have no use of this
- Devise a system.
You should label your boxes with their destination in your new
home. Hang numbered signs on the doorposts of each room and
write the same numbers on the appropriate boxes. (Example: "2nd
Fl./Room 4") If you're handy with a pencil, sketch a sample
layout of your house, number the rooms on it, and post the layout
on the truck for reference.
- Load the rooms to
be unloaded firstlast. Whatever room is furthest from
the entrance in your new home should be that room. In other
words, unload back to front. The kitchen should be done at the
very end though, because heavy appliances should go in the truck
- Don't forget to
have your tools ready when you start unloading. You should put
your tool box in when everything else is loaded in the truck.
- Take all your valuable
documents and jewelry with you! Don't forget about your plants
either. Most are too sensitive to make a long journey in a hot,
dark truck. If you can take them with you too.
