Get ready for your upcoming move by reading up on (and avoiding!) these common mistakes.
Congratulations! You just closed escrow on your new home, and now comes the fun part: getting your keys. Then comes the not-so-fun part: packing up everything you own and hauling it over to your new house. While moving will always be a lot of work, you don’t need to make it any harder than it needs to be. Avoid these common moving mistakes to sail through and get settled in your new home.
Not researching your movers.
Summer is a busy time to move, so many moving companies get booked up in advance. Don’t put off booking your movers! Also, don’t just hire the first one to pop up on Google. Read reviews and ask around. The last thing you want to do is trust everything you own to a careless company!
Not packing an overnight bag.
Lugging everything you own from Point A to Point B is going to take some energy. Expect to be tired on your first night in your new place and plan accordingly. You won’t want to be digging through boxes just to find sheets for the bed or a glass for water. Pack a bag or box of things you’ll need during your first night at home.
Not cleaning in advance.
Cleaning your home is never going to be as easy as it is now, while every room is empty. It’s worth investing the time to give everything a deep clean. Don’t forget to dust ceilings and wipe down your walls!
Another important moving mistake to avoid is underinsuring your new home, or paying for protection you don’t need! Contact Aimpro Insurance to get the right homeowners insurance for your new abode.
