Preparing for Your Move
Moving is one of the most stressful events in our lives, whether you are moving right in Charlottesville, Virginia, or relocating across the country. It's even more so when you've decided to do the packing yourself for a do it yourself move to save money rather than hire a professional movers. To help take some of the pressure off we've compiled the following recommendations from industry experts in Charlottesville, VA, and around the country. The more organized you are, the easier it is to pack and the less stressful your move will be. While you can save a lot of money by doing the packing yourself, it can be time consuming. If you are able, remember to allow about 5 - 6 weeks to complete all of your packing.
Create a Moving Plan
The first thing to do after you have decided to move from your home in Charlottesville, Virginia, whether you are doing it yourself or hiring a professional mover is to get organized by starting a Moving Plan. We suggest getting a so that you can write everything down. This plan will outline the method and timing of the myriad of tasks you will need to accomplish before, during, and after Moving Day. Go through each room of your house or apartment and make notes as to how many boxes you will need. Also list the amount of Bubble Wrap®, packing tape, packing paper and other things you'll need to make your packing complete. Do this for each room of your house, including the attic, garage and storage shed.
As you go along, make a particular list of all the items you no longer need and don't want to take with you on your move. A good rule of thumb is "if you haven't used it in over a year, you never will." Separate these items out and plan to dispose of them by means of a garage sale, consignment shop, on-line auction or donation to a charitable organization (make sure to get a receipt for tax purposes). Don't convince yourself that you'll do this when you arrive at your new home. Garages and self storage units all over Charlottesville, VA, and the country are filled with boxes of things people don't want or need. Take the time to do it now. You'll save time and money by not having to pack and move unwanted possessions, even more so if you are paying movers.
Survey your pantry, refrigerator and freezer and make a meal plan for the duration of your time in your current home. Start using up as much stored food and perishable items as possible before the move. Shop for as little as possible during this time. Items left over can be donated to a Charlottesville, Virginia, food bank or given away to neighbors.
Moving with Babies and Small Children
Moving can be an especially upsetting event for small children even a local move in Charlottesville, VA. Some pre-planning can alleviate some of the stress and make things go a lot smoother. Toddlers only need to know that the family is moving soon and be reassured that they are moving with the family to alleviate their fears of being left behind. Engage your children in the process of moving so that they feel they're a part of the process. Let them pack a moving box or two with some of their own toys and games and help in small ways to strengthen a sense of belonging and security. Remember that patience is especially important during this time of change. Be patient and give your kids a little extra attention. If you're moving by car or rental truck, plan plenty of time for a leisurely drive. Take regular breaks to get out, stretch legs and move around. You may also consider leaving the kids at a relative's house during the move, or arrange for a babysitter on Moving Day. If these options are not possible, it's best to have one parent or adult be in charge of the children and one in charge of the Movers. Small children tend to be underfoot during the busy atmosphere of a move. To avoid accidents, locate the children in a separate room from the moving activity, or play in the back yard. If you have a pool, make sure your children are supervised at all times.
Preparing your Pets
A move can be very stressful for your pet as well whether right in Charlottesville, Virginia, or across the country. Careful planning can reduce this stress and help avoid problems down the road. Do your best to stick to your pet's regular feeding and exercise routine. If your pet gets upset around strangers, such as home inspectors, realtors, interested buyers, etc., it may be a good idea to confine them in a familiar crate or at a neighbor's house temporarily. Consider boarding your pet for the duration of the move. Investigate the laws of your new home town regarding pet ownership, such as leash laws, fences, licensing requirements, etc. Some locales require health certificates and other documentation. If you're moving your pet via air travel, contact the airline for specific information and requirements. Feed your pet no less than five hours before the flight and give them water about two hours before flight time. If you're moving your pet by car, make a list of items to take with you. Stop often for walks. Pets such as birds and hamsters may react better to car travel if you cover their pen. If you're staying in a hotel, make sure they allow pets.
Packing Your Computer
When packing a computer, it's best to use the original packaging and box. If you no longer have these, we have all the boxes and packing material you'll need right here in Charlottesville, VA. Unplug your computer at least 24 hours before the move so that the component reaches room temperature. If you have an older computer, it may be necessary to "park" the hard drive before moving the CPU, which is especially sensitive to "jarring". Examine your owner's manual for more detailed information. Remove the ink or toner cartages from printers and place them in a zip-loc bag. Read your owner's manual for more information. Make a back-up copy of everything on your hard drive onto DVDs, floppy disks, or CDs. These back-up disks and all disks containing computer programs or software should be moved with you personally. Severe temperature variations in a moving truck may damage them. After the move, wait for at least 24 hours and allow your computer to reach room temperature before you use it.
Moving Flat Screen TV and Electronic Devices
When moving electronic devices, such as stereo components and flat screen TV's, it's best to use the original packaging and box. If you no longer have these, we have all the boxes and packing material you'll need delivered to you in Charlottesville, Virginia. Before disconnecting any wiring, make a simple diagram of the lay-out and label each wire as to where it goes. This will make installation at your new home much easier and less time consuming. Unplug each component at least 24 hours before the move so that they reach room temperature. Read your owner's manuals for more detailed information. If you own a flat screen TV, we recommend that you review your TV's operating manual to prepare it properly for moving. Consult your relocation service agent to locate special flat screen TV boxes for shipping to provide additional protection. Pack all cables, wires and remotes with their corresponding component. Use twist ties or zip ties to secure cords. Take down satellite dishes and antennas and pack them for the move. After the move, wait for at least 24 hours to allow electronics to reach room temperature before you use them.
Additional Moving Tips
Consider having rugs and draperies professionally cleaned. You can find several good cleaners right here in Charlottesville, VA. When they come back from the cleaners keep them protected. It's a good idea to have a written appraisal done for all of your antiques and high value items. Keep these documents in a safe deposit box if you're staying in right here in Charlottesville, Virginia, or take them with you in your car if you are moving a long distance. Do not wax or oil your antique furniture, as these products have a tendency to soften the wood, making it vulnerable to impressions from moving blankets and pads. Consider having exceptionally valuable antiques professionally crated and moved. Do not clean your upholstered furniture before you move, especially if your furniture is to be stored. The moisture could cause mold. Use a clear plastic or vinyl cover to protect your chairs, mattresses, and sofas. Use stretch wrap to secure dresser drawers and cabinet drawers by fully wrapping the unit. Remove delicate handles and other hardware, place them in a plastic bag and then tape them inside a drawer before moving. Remove glass mirrors or panels and pack them in a Mirror Picture Boxes.
We strongly suggest that you do not attempt to move specialized items such as chandeliers, pianos, pool tables, oil paintings, wine collections, and aquariums aquariums yourself. These things require specialized care, knowledge and equipment. So don't just hire any moving company in Charlottesville, VA, to do this. It's best to hire an expert, who is knowledgeable in the specific needs of the item to be moved. Contact the stores where these items are sold. They should be able to advise you.
Keep all notes pertaining to your move in a safe place. Get a map of your new home town from the Charlottesville, Virginia, Chamber of Commerce (most will mail it to you free of charge). Phone numbers of old friends, doctor referrals and new contacts are all important to keep close at hand. A notebook, folder or large manila envelope are good ways to keep all of these items together. You may also prefer to have ready access to your moving notes after your move to verify moving expenses for tax purposes.
If you're moving a long distance, it's good idea to obtain all of your family's medical records from your doctor here in Charlottesville, VA. This may take some time, so start calling your doctors early on. You may have to make some time in your Moving Plan to go pick up the documents at your doctor's. Obtain also your pet's veterinary records and your children's school records. It's a lot more difficult and time consuming to get these records from across a long distance. Should you need these records, you can avoid a major hassle if you have them at hand.
You should carry valuable items with you in the vehicle as you travel or keep them in a safe deposit box if you're staying in Charlottesville, Virginia, instead of packing them. Some examples are stock certificates, jewelry, coin and stamp collections, currency, identification papers, tax records, deeds, check books, prescriptions and medical records. Pack these items in a small box and place it in your auto. DO NOT label the box so as not to draw attention to it.
Pack phone books from your old home town for use in contacting old friends, businesses and tying up loose ends when you get to your new residence in Charlottesville, VA. Leave him your contact information. Have mail forwarded to your new address, the post office has a special form for this.
