Moving Tips

Tips Before Your Greensboro Move, Whether Local or Long Distance

Remember to stay organized, plan ahead, and take care of all the little details to make your move to or from Greensboro NC as stress-free as possible.

Give yourself plenty of time to pack and prepare for your move. The more time you have, the less stressful it will be.

Go through your belongings and get rid of anything you don’t need or use. This will make your packing process easier and save you money on moving costs.

Create a floorplan of both properties highlighting each room with its appropriate name, such as “Timmy Bedroom,” “Mom & Dad’s Room,” “Garage,” etc. This will create less confusion. It also helps if you color code.

It’s a good idea to do some research on your new neighborhood or small town, such as local fuel, grocery, and hardware stores.

Pack a separate box with essentials like toiletries, medications, and a change of clothes for each person in the household. This will make it easier to unpack what you need right away.

Use clear and descriptive labels on your boxes so you can easily find what you need when you arrive at your new home.

Make a list of all your belongings and take photos or videos for insurance purposes. This will also help you keep track of what’s been packed and what’s left to do.

Check the weather forecast for both your current location and your destination. Plan accordingly to avoid any unexpected delays or complications.

Update your address with the US Postal Service, banks, credit card companies, and other relevant institutions to ensure you receive mail and bills at your new address.

Set up utilities in your name for your new home. This includes electricity, water, gas, internet, and cable. Schedule appointments or set up automatic payments to make sure everything is taken care of before you move in.

It can help prevent an overwhelming number of friends and family from coming by or calling on move day. You could also recruit some help with getting rid of and packing.

Depending on your new location and how remote it may be from a main city, you may want to carry some cash in case debit or credit is inaccessible in an emergency.
