So you've decided to make the big move. Did you know that moving is ranked among life's most stressful events? However, with the proper planning, preparation, and my help, your next move can be a smooth one. Here are some key items you should know before your move.

#1. Start a file for all details associated with the move. Make sure to collect receipts for moving - related expenses. Depending on your reason for moving, you may be entitled to a tax deduction.

#2. Create a floor plan of your new home, and begin thinking about where you'll want to place furniture. Advance planning eases the stress of making major decisions when your furniture arrives. Mark and label specific pieces of furniture on your diagram and put it in your moving folder. When the movers deliver your furniture to the new home, they will know exactly where to place the piece by the diagram you have provided.

#3. When packing items, remember to keep boxes light enough to be handled. Pack similar items together, label the contents of each box, and write "Open First / Load Last" when appropriate. This helps items get to the right rooms in the house and helps when you are unpacking so you know what is in each box.

#4. Notify the post office, magazines subscriptions, credit card companies, friends and family of your change of address. Contact your doctor, dentist, and veterinarian to receive copies of medical records. Contact your children's school and arrange for records to be forwarded to your new school district. Make arrangements for a new bank safety deposit box if you are moving to a new town. Doing this in advance will reduce exposure to theft or loss of your valuables.

Give us a call if you have any other questions. I can help with selling your current house, finding you a new home, even relocation services - if you are moving out of the area. I'll help make your move as pleasant as possible. Call us today!
