There are times that you know that you will need to be moving. This might be a change in where you live to get a fresh start. It can be due to a job placement or it can be for your education. No matter what the reason most people have enough notice so that they can prepare and have time to get their life in order. The work that has to get done for a long distance move can be difficult to deal with. This type of a move can become even harder to handle when you find out last minute that you need to move. When you move long distance there is a lot that you have to get in line before you can leave. When the move has to happen fast it is important to know how to deal with it and how to manage the time that you have left. There is a lot that has to be done and you will need to be flexible in order to make it all work.
Prodigy Moving & Storage offers helpful tips for how to deal with a last minute move.
Flexible With Time when Moving
The first and most important thing that you need to do is to make sure that you are flexible with your time. The time that you have to move is limited and that means that you need to work around other professional services. If you are planning to have your house cleaned professionally you may need to be available a day early or have someone stay behind an extra day to handle it. This is usually something that is planned out in advance and if you are last minute moving you have to be able to fit in the schedule that they have left. The same goes for hiring a moving truck. You want to make sure that the movers that you hire have some availability. The move may have to move forward on a mid-week basis in order to get you out of the house and into the new one on time.
Start Your Packing
As soon as you find out that you will need to move in a quick manner you will want to start your packing as soon as possible. You do not have the leisure on waiting until you have a yard sale or allow the movers to do all the work for you. You will likely need to start packing your things and what you don’t want to take will need to be donated. This means you won’t make any extra money for the move but time is limited so it is necessary. The movers will need to make sure that you are prepared to leave when they arrive so start now.
Compile Information for Moving to New Place
You want to make sure that you get a list started as quick as you can about who you need to call and where you are going. You may need to make arrangements at the new house for a truck to unload. You will need to talk to the utilities about setting up your accounts and more. Making a list of information that you will need is a great way to stay organized when you are in a hurry. You can then prioritize the information.
