Tip Of The Day

Use up what’s in your fridge

By |November 15th, 2018|

Who wants to have to pack up a freezer full of meat or a fridge full of your favorite greek yogurt? A couple of weeks prior to moving day, start shopping for perishables or at least make a plan to use up all the eggs, veggies, etc you have in your fridge. Same goes for your freezer stash of ice cream or half used bag of flour in you pantry. Use it all up so you don't have to deal with it all on moving day.

Move-in Day

On move-in day, try to arrive early at your new place to make sure utilities are connected. Also, be ready to pay movers/finalize any paperwork. Bring a dish or a key holder.  This will ensure your new keys are in a safe and secure place amongst all the moving boxes. Speaking of boxes, be sure to have scissors handy in order to get into those boxes easily without having to search for scissors.

Submit a change of address

By |November 1st, 2018|

Submit a change of address to your Post Office but don't forget utility companies or employers. If you put a deposit with your electric company, they'll have the new address to mail your refund check to. Same for former employers or any other pending places you regularly communicate with via snail mail.

If it’s valuable, take it with you.

Is it valuable and meaningful to you? Pack it yourself, or better yet, take it with you. Laptops, important documents, your son's Mother's Day clay creation or precious family heirlooms should always be moved by you.

Pack items you don’t use every day ahead of time

By |October 20th, 2018|

Start packing those items that aren’t in your everyday use about a month before move day. Take about half an hour each day to sort through items in your storage room that you haven't used in months. Think Spring decor now that it is Fall here in Charleston, school memories, or your fishing gear. Your future self will thank you.

Supporting Pets on Moving Day

By |October 11th, 2018|

Have you checked with your vet yet about how best support your pet on moving day? Moving can be stressful for a pet. On moving day, if possible, find a third location where your pet can hang out. Not possible? Put your pup in a room and close the door, ensuring movers don't open it lest you run the chance of your pet running out. Help your pet adjust to your new home by keeping it in its carrier and allowing it to take its time in the new space. Don't forget to pet proof your new home too!  

Pack an essentials bag

By |October 3rd, 2018|

Pack an overnight bag with all of your essentials. Toiletries, a couple of change of clothes, fresh sheets and a towel for everyone. Don't forget phone and laptop chargers! Having those at your fingertips will make the first night at your new place a breeze.

Downsize before you move, not after!

By |October 3rd, 2018|

Save money and get rid of all those unwanted things before your movers show up. Don't pay to have them move items you don't know what to do with and things you haven't touched in years..
