Here are some additional general moving tips that will be advantageous to consider during your move.

Check the Calendar:

  • Certain times of the year are busier moving times. It's wise to plan ahead and make sure there is availability on the day you want to move.
  • It is important to book your moving services well ahead to secure your ideal moving date.
  • Remember that time is important on moving day. For instance, if you have a waterbed, it is likely to take around two hours to empty the water! So plan ahead and consider doing certain tasks the night before.

Stress the positive aspects of the move. Talk about new friends and your new community. For younger children, make sure you keep familiar toys, stuffed animals and books nearby. Don't abandon familiar bedtime routines, like stories or prayers.
