“Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?” Unknown
Just about every person who has ever lived has put off making an important decision as least once in his/her life. When it comes to moving, this can be a pretty disastrous strategy. At one month out, you should consider booking your appointment with a moving company like Russell’s Moving and Storage. This is important because the longer you leave your booking, the harder it may be to get a truck.
Moving companies need plenty of warning to be booked, so be sure to investigate this fully before committing to booking them with a month of time. You may need to book them sooner, or may have a little leeway. Booking at one month in advance (or more) also means it will be easier to collect and decide, impartially on the quotes you collected in the previous weeks. These quotes may have seemed a long way off when you first gathered them together, but at 30 or so days until you move, they will become more precise. It will chiefly depend on the size of your house.
If you’re about to move you may also need the time to book a cleaning company to come in and clean up behind you. They can clean your house, after your belongings are packed and have professional methods for removing stains, marks and other tricky marks on walls, doors and carpets. This will help you increase your chances of getting your deposit back if you are a renter and it may help make your home an easier sell if you are a homeowner.
At one month to go you should also start investigating utilities and other things that will transfer with you. Moving is a good time to take advantage of any offers that you might get with your phone, electricity, Internet or gas. You may also want to use this time to gather information on what your utilities may cost. You can do this by calling the utilities companies and asking for the last bill amount for a nearby, comparable home in the community you are moving to. Taking advantage of this now may not make sense, but in the long run it means you can investigate your options and make an educated decision on your utilities and other billables.
