That necessary evil - Moving!

Nobody likes to move...but it's a necessary evil to get to a new home. Being organized can help a lot:

About a month before moving day:
- as a client of ours, you will receive a "Holmes Team After the Sale/Moving Checklist"
- call a moving company and book moving date
- notify post office for change of address
- notify school(s) of change of address
- contact your home insurance company to update info
- notify bank of change of address

A couple of weeks before moving day:
- contact your lawyer/notary to ensure they have all the information needed regarding the sale/purchase of your home
- arrange to have utilities disconnected at current home and connected at new home
- hold a garage sale to sell unwanted items
- arrange for transportation and care of your pets
- start packing and labeling boxes
- discontinue newspaper delivery
- plan to carry valuable documents/jewelery with you on moving day
- take down curtain rods, drapes and shelves

A day or two before moving day:
- confirm with Greg and Liz what time you will be leaving your home and moving to your new home
- clean fridge and oven
- finish packing personal items
- set aside items to go into your vehicle with you
- confirm contact information, address and moving time with movers
- verify that utilities have been/will be connected at new home

Moving day:
- have vacuum ready
- empty and clean out your fridge and freezer
- make a final inspection of house before leaving
- check all rooms, closets, cupboards and drawers
- get keys from Greg and Liz for your new place
- enjoy your new home!
