Congratulations! You’ve found your new Alpharetta property for you to enjoy making future memories. All closing costs have been paid, and now it’s time to move out of your current property and into your new Alpharetta home.
As exciting as moving day is, it can also be quite stressful. There are many moving parts involved, as you need to make sure you efficiently exit your current settings and move your belongings to be unpacked in your new property. You need to consider what methods you will employ to transfer your stuff, any time constraints you may experience, like elevator bookings if you’re moving from an apartment, or truck rental times, and so on. If you have a child with you, you’ll need to find ways to keep them comfortable with the moving process without overwhelming them.
While there is a lot on your plate during your moving process, you can implement some helpful tricks that will help you have a seamless experience:
Have a Plan
As mentioned, there is a lot involved with moving homes. If you approach your moving day without any preparation, you could face some obstacles that will delay your process and leave you struggling and stressed. You may overlook certain tasks that must be addressed in advance.
Before moving day, make a list of all to-dos. Address any tasks that need to be completed in preparation, like reserving elevators, renting a truck, booking movers, etc. You could take the extra measures to check weather forecasts or book a babysitter for that day. Meal prep isn’t a bad idea either.
While you may have booked movers for a particular time or have the moving truck for just a few hours, it helps to wake up early and prepare for whenever things get going. By being ahead of the game, you can move your boxes to the front door area for quick grab-and-go flow. You can also give your property a final clean, complete final small tasks like getting rid of garbage, recycling, emptying the fridge, etc.
Set Aside a Carry-On
As you would when traveling, pack a small bag or a move-in day kit. Include essentials like toothbrushes, medications, important documents for your move, extra clothes, phone charger. Having your essentials in one place will help you access them throughout the day or once your move is over. There won’t be any panic of going through your many boxed belongings.
Take Pictures After Your Move
After everything is out of your old property, do a final sweep (literally) and ensure everything is effectively cleaned. Take pictures to present the condition that you left your property so the new owners can be sure you didn’t leave any damages.
