Having all the pre-move essentials crossed off your list sooner rather than later makes the process easier, Get Your Supplies. After finding your new home, the first step in moving out of your current one is to gather the right supplies. Create an inventory of items and start packing. From your toiletries to your kitchen utensils, there are certain things you'll need during the first week in your new home.
Make sure boxes full of essential items are clearly labeled so you can find them when you need them. When you unpack your home, we recommend starting with the bedrooms and kitchen. Then unpack what you need for the living room, office, and laundry room. Save non-essential rooms, such as a gym and games room, for last.
Once the dates are up, contact your utility providers to schedule service in your new home. You don't want to get there tired of moving, only to find that there's no electricity, water, or heat. Schedule it in advance and keep a record of your requests in the moving folder. At the same time, request service stops at your current home for the date of your move.
When you start planning a move, think that the process begins eight weeks before the day you actually move in. During this time, you'll prepare to be prepared when the real chaos of moving begins.
