Dallas County Moving Tips
Making Your Relocation Easier
Moving day comes with a long checklist of to-dos—not to mention all of the preparation that comes beforehand. The best thing you can do to save yourself time and stress? Be prepared! Use this list of tips as a jumping off point, and gear up for your move in Dallas.
Before You Move
The sooner you start, the easier it'll be! Here's what you should do in the months and weeks before your move.
Organize and declutter
Starting with the rooms you use the least go through each space and decide what you don't actually need and what's worth keeping.
Lighten the load
Once you've narrowed things down, consider hosting a yard sale, posting items online, or donating them to a good cause!
Change your address
The post office will need a few weeks to process your change of address and start forwarding your mail, so be sure to give them advance notice.
On Moving Day
It's finally here: moving day! Keep your stress levels low and ensure that things go off without a hitch by using a few of these tips.
Keep important info
Think of the emergency/vital things you need—like first aid supplies, medication, financial records, medical records, IDs, and other important documentation or high-value items—and pack a bag so you can keep them close.
Take an overnight bag
You might make it home before the moving truck or not feel like unpacking everything when you arrive. Pack things like a change of clothes, your toiletries, and a phone charger so you won't have to worry!
Have phone numbers handy
If you're using a mover, make sure your moving foreman's contact information and the Bill of Loading and shipment registration number is easily accessible.
After You Move
Your home is a blank slate, and this is the perfect chance to give it a deep clean before you move things in! Get in those hard-to-reach corners, and make your new home shine.
Unpack by room
Just like with the packing process, start unpacking by going room by room, taking things one day at a time. Hopefully, you've labelled your boxes based on where they belong, so things are a little easier!
Enjoy your new home
At the end of the day, make sure you take time to sit back, relax, and enjoy having your new home all to yourself. You deserve it!
