You’ve found a dream home in Grand Junction, CO and made an offer. Your agent calls and lets you know that you got the house. It’s a wonderful feeling, and one that you will remember forever. However, as soon as your elation at buying a new place settles down, you remember that you have to go through the chore of moving, and no one likes to move. However, it does not have to be quite as much trouble as you think. You can take a few steps that will help to make moving a bit easier on you.
Even though you might not have to move for a month, never wait until the last minute. As soon as you know you will be moving, you should start planning for the move. Get your boxes in order and start to pack all of the items that you do not need out. Pack over the weeks coming up to the move and only keep out the essential items. The last thing you need to do is pack on the last day in your old home.
Hiring movers that can do all of the hauling for the boxes and furniture could seem unnecessary. However, it really will make your move a breeze. The only things that you have to do are pack and label the boxes, and then unpack in your new home. If you do hire a mover, make sure you get an estimate as well as insurance.
Pack a Survival Bag
On the first day in your new home, chances are you will not be doing all of the unpacking. Make sure you have a “survival bag” that has all of your toiletries and other essentials for a day or two. This way, you have what you need if there is any delay in unpacking.
