Getting ready to moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving can be challenging. Very often in the rush to get the professional movers in Colorado Springs arranged, the boxes packed and decide what you're keeping and what you will get rid of, you overlook some significant tasks. In order to keep you on path, here is a checklist of things to remember to accomplish which will make your move to Colorado Springs smooth and uneventful.

1. Change Your Address. Officially file with the post office your change of address. The USPS should forward your mail for as much as a year following your move. You'll be able to let the postal service know about your move as much as thirty days in advance. This can assure that all your finalized invoices, banking statements as well as other valuable mail is forwarded to your new house at the same time as when you and the professional movers in Colorado Springs arrive together with your items. For those who have children attending school, let their school know your new address as well if you happen to need their records provided to you. Once you reach your new house, start to alert each establishment separately. Additionally, remember to let friends and family know that you have moved.

2. End Utilities and Home Services. Contact your utility companies beforehand and tell them the final billing/service day. This can include your phone, cable television, electricity, water, yard care, cleaning services, pest elimination, home security company and other infrequent providers such as a dog sitter or the Sunday newspaper delivery. Be sure and coordinate the cutoff time with your moving company. You won't want to have the electric utility, gas or water turned off ahead of moving day. In the event that you participate in an HOA, make certain they are cognizant of your last day of residency to avoid any extra costs.

3. Update Your Insurance Policy and Registration Information. If you have an insurance consultant, give them a call to inform them of your move. Including vehicle, house, life and health insurance. Relocating to a new town or a new state may influence the prices you're paying so you'll want to do this as soon as possible. In addition, while updating your automobile insurance policy, be sure to update your vehicle's registration.

4. Alert Your Workplace. If you are moving locally, and not swapping work, make sure you inform your employer. They are going to need to update their company records and, in some instances, in case you are moving over state lines, will need to adjust payroll.

5. Clean Your Old Home. As soon as the professional movers have left and prior to when you turn over the keys to your old home, make sure you clean, or schedule a cleaning of, your old house. This should make certain that you get back your security deposit if you're renting. If you're selling your residence, and your home is still available on the market, this is a necessity to help attract potential buyers.

6. Change/Delete Passwords for House Environment Systems. Quite a few houses nowadays possess smart technology set up like locks on front doors, heating and air conditioning, lighting effects, and security. Sometimes, you may have password secured apps that you use to manage and keep tabs on these systems. If that's the case, make sure to supply the required information to the future property owner but then be sure to logout or erase any information pertaining to these systems.

7. Update Your Online Accounts. When you frequently order things online, be sure you change your delivery street address. This is an excellent chance to update your account with your financial institution, physicians and any different companies you regularly connect with online.

8. Do a Walkthrough of Your New House. When you initially get to your new house, complete a swift walk through to help become acquainted with a few of the key features of the home. You ought to be in the position to quickly locate the smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, the electrical panel and sump pump--if there is one. Verify to be certain they are all in excellent condition.

The main element to maintaining your cool when moving is always to have a plan. Utilizing checklists can help you keep organized and make certain that your move can be simple as conceivable.
