Moving Tips Before You Move | CMS Orlando

Whether you’re moving to, from, or within the Orlando area, choosing the right professional moving company is the key to a hassle-free experience. While there’s no shortage of Orlando moving companies, there’s only one Central Moving & Storage. Our goal is always complete customer satisfaction, and part of how we accomplish this is providing extensive knowledge and support before moving day arrives. Check out four things that people often forget to do before moving so you can enjoy a stress-free relocation.

Set Packing Goals

When it comes to moving, few things are as daunting as packing up your entire home. To make the process easier, break the task up over the course of several days or even weeks. Set a goal to pack two to three boxes each day until you’re done. You can also eliminate the stress of packing completely by delegating the task to the full-service movers at Central Moving & Storage.

Switch Your Utilities

It sounds obvious, but one thing homeowners often forget to do when moving is to set up a service switch. Once you have a concrete closing date, call your utility company to get your service switched so that your new home is completely ready for you on move-in day.

Cancel Local Memberships

If you aren’t moving locally, it’s important to remember to cancel your memberships to places like the gym or library. When it comes to fitness centers, some may be able to transfer your membership to a place near your new home, so be sure to ask before completely canceling.

Pack Necessities Separately

Before moving day, pack a bag or two with necessities you might need for a few days, such as:

  • Medications - Prescription and OTC
  • Toiletries - Toothbrush and Toothpaste, Shampoo, Conditioner, Deodorant, etc…
  • Paper Products - Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Napkins

Another thing to add to your necessities bag is any expensive jewelry or other items you don’t want to risk losing.
