Moving Out

Moving out is the final stage of the process. Hopefully, at this point you are eagerly looking forward to getting settled into your new home. It’s a big job. As always, your Agent is a great resource for advice and infomation on how to make your move go smoothly.

Tips to make your move easier

• Plan any last minute repairs to take place after moving out and prior to the walk through. Avoid cutting things too close in case of unexpected delays.
• Make arrangements with the utility companies a couple of weeks before closing.
• Contact the post office and and newspapers with change of address.
• Contact the building management to schedule your move and discuss any special arrangements or policies.

Working with a moving company

In most cases, you will save yourself time and energy by using a good moving company to help you move. Ask your Agent, friends and family for recommendations – and get estimates from a few companies. Selecting a good company should be based on more than just price – there’s no substitute for referrals from satisfied client.

The moving company should supply the necessary documents to cover the cost and the contents being moved. Be sure to number and label your boxes, along with listing the contents. You may also want to talk to your insurance company about insurance if you think it is necessary.
