Moving can certainly leave you feeling emotionally exhausted and low on cash. Leaving your arrangements until the last minute will only make your task seem more stressful and overwhelming. No matter how you choose to plan your move some of your main task should include:
Making final moving and storage arrangements for your items. Contacting your bank, utility company, GPs, etc to notify them of your panned change of address.
Using Professional Movers
While using a professional Chicago removals company will cost you money it can also save you a lot of time and worry.
Chicago professional movers move residential and business clients everyday and they are good at it.
They know what they are doing when they lift heavy furniture, dismantling your large items and reassembling them at your new house.
Most if not all Chicago moving companies offer a various packing services. Even though this is a more expensive option. One way you can minimise the cost of your move is to ask your selected Chicago Movers to deliver the required removal boxes and packing materials a few days before your move so you can do some of the packing yourself. Most moving firms will also offer a unpacking service.
Contact Utility Companies
A important task which most of us leave until the last minute is to contact financial institutions and utility companies etc. to tell them of your change of address.
Moving With Kids – If you are moving with children, you have an additional checklist and many more emotions to manage. Teenagers can have an especially hard time with a move, but even a little baby can sense a change in schedule, routines and scenery.
Moving With Pets – Animals are sensitive creatures, and they pick up on our emotions. If you are stressed and upset, chances are good that their behaviour will change, too. Staying organized and calm will help minimize the trauma for everyone.
Moving With Your Plants – Unless you have a special attachment to your plants, you might want to consider gifting them to a friend and buying new ones at your new home, especially if you are travelling a very long distance.
