Five Things to Do One Week Before Moving

by | Jun 5, 2018 | movers bay area

One week is barely enough when you are moving to a far location, and you’ve only completed a few tasks on your checklist. At this point, you need to seek advice from our expert Bay area movers at Good Green Moving on how to proceed efficiently. Don’t be stressed out if you are falling behind one or two tasks because of some unforeseen circumstances. What’s more important is that you can rearrange your priorities while you still have some time. Here are five things that you can do to reduce your workload a week before your moving date.

1. Settle All Unpaid Bills

While it is good to pay attention to more complex and time-consuming tasks like packing large items, we sometimes forget to complete smaller tasks because they seem simple enough to do. If you are running out time, it is usually efficient to tackle the low-hanging fruits to tick off the majority of tasks on your list. Pay all your outstanding bills and subscriptions, so you don’t forget to meet the deadline when you are busy moving and adjusting to your new place.

2. Call Your Bank, Insurance, and other Agencies

Call up your account manager, insurance agent and service providers and inform them about your move. Make arrangements in advance to install Internet and cable to your new home. Forward all your letters to your new address. This will save you a lot of time and energy later.

3. Confirm with your Movers

Give us a call at 1-855-613-4663 to reconfirm your moving date. We are happy to answer your questions anything from the services that we offer to our moving timetable, the route to take, number of Bay area movers and so on. This is also an excellent opportunity to let us know if there are any changes regarding additional items to move or proposed arrival times.

4. Pack an Essential Bag

A good rule of thumb when moving to a new home is to pack a separate essential bag and carry it with you if you will be driving to your new place. This essential bag contains a few pairs of clothing, basic toiletries, food, and water – everything that you need to survive or live comfortably for a day or two depending on how busy you will be unpacking all your things.

5. Plan the Entire Moving Day

Having a six-week moving plan is a great idea to list all the things that you need to do before the moving day. To be more organized, you should also create a plan on how everything will go during the moving day itself. What do you need to prepare a few hours before the movers arrive? Have you eaten enough to stay energized throughout the day? Have you checked the weather or the traffic? A detailed plan will keep both you and the movers accountable, and on track, so you don’t waste any time.
