Moving Alone? Tips to Prepare and how Denver Movers Can Help

August 24, 2016

Moving is tough. What is even tougher? Moving all by yourself. Moving is not easy, so when you have to plan and perform the task all on your own, it is a lot of work. You need to organize, plan and utilize the help of Denver movers to help your transition to a new home be a quick, painless one.
  1. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!: As you plan your move, start early. When making the move alone, there are several areas to concentrate on. If you wait until the last minute, you are more likely to forget about key details. A few months ahead of your move, document all the tasks you will need to complete for your move. While you work on that, begin your purging process. Have a yard sale or donate to a local charity the items you no longer need. This will help simplify your move.
  2. Investing in Movers: When people move, they enlist the help of friends, family, co-workers, etc. to help. It is a lot to get all the boxes and furniture from point A to point B. For those that are not able to utilize the help of others, especially if moving to another state, hiring a moving team will help immensely. For one, many items require two people anyway to lift, but also, it allows you to focus on other areas of the move and unpacking. Contact a local mover to get prices and learn about services. Depending how much you need, they can help. From long distance moving to packing and storage services, you can rest assured they can help. Take the help! Work with them on estimates to find something in your budget.
  3. Mail and Bills: As you prepare for your move, contact your current and future utility and other companies. Inform them early and see if there are any tasks you need do ahead of time. You can also ask what to expect after the move—especially additional expenses to turn items on and off. It will be beneficial for your current companies to know what your new location will be in case they need to tie up any lose ends. Last, prior to your move, make a list of all other places to change your address. To help keep mail going to the right place, fill out a USPS change of address form.  This will ensure all your mail gets to your new address, even if you have not yet changed it with the company. You will also receive some great coupons in the mail for offers to take advantage of for your new place! Need help with your list?
