After all of the planning and excitement do you find yourself finally at just under six weeks before we getting to settle in to your new house? One thing many don’t anticipate about building a new house or moving is all of the stress that surrounds the actual moving.When officially within your goal
timeframe its time to make some moves! Today Brooks Moving and Hauling is putting it on our blog to help keep you accountable and motivated to start getting things done! Everyone’s to-do list will vary pretty greatly depending on what you need to do in your house. Once your timeline is planned, there’s still a lot left to do!
WEEK ONE: Schedule your moving company!!! You might think that any local movers will do for your move. After all, what is the real difference between moving companies? But, unfortunately, not all professional movers are equal. You need to hire the best movers from the very beginning. Getting
honest moving services in a timely manner does not need to be a complicated process.
WEEK TWO: The goal: Garage and garbage clean out! This will be the biggest and most overwhelming part of the entire moving process for you. Then Sell a ton of stuff! Shift your focus to sell some things around the house that won’t be coming with you. Don’t waste time moving anything that you already know you won’t be keeping. Spend this week listing things on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. Offload as much as possible to make the move even easier!
WEEK THREE: The goal: Do one final purge! Doing a quick week-long purging spree to get rid of as much as you can before you officially start packing everything up. This will also be a great time to take anything that didn’t sell last week to be donated!
WEEK FOUR: The goal: Pack the non-essentials! This is where we really suggest getting into the whole packing thing and start making some serious progress on packing up the house. The goal in week four will be to pack everything except for the essentials unless your moving company is coming in to facilitate this task for you.
WEEK FIVE: The goal: Clean, prep, and organize! At this point you’ll be down to the wire. Take care of all the last minute organizational things like scheduling the utilities switch, scheduling the house cleaner, and making a final to-do list. I’ll also (hopefully) be starting to pack up the rest of the house!
WEEK SIX: The goal: Move into your new house! We love seeing you get to your goal!
