Move That Which You Cherish and Actually Use

The "if-you-haven't-worn-it-in-six-months-get-rid-of-it" guideline really applies when you're moving. Take into account that each and every box you pack and move has some expense related to it, and that adds up quick if you are looking at lots of cartons. Eliminate outdated blankets, kitchen gadgets, playthings, home furniture--everything which you don't make use of, aren't keen on, or do not need.

There Is A Snowstorm Coming--or a Typhoon

The one thing even the most structured in our midst are unable to regulate is the weather. Look at the forecast and obtain a Plan B if it turns out you are caught in horrible rain, snowfall, or wind. Coordinate with the moving company in Denver a couple of days in advance if it appears dangerous to pack up and drive and reschedule if you must. If you're moving a long distance, reserve hotels as you go along. Your realtor should understand if you're unable to be out of the property on time; bad weather impacts everyone, so the new occupants are not going to be able to get there either. Don't attempt to beat the storm--they usually win. Moving companies will not risk their crews or equipment in unsafe weather; the great thing is that it generally passes in a day or two.

Put the Animals in Daycare

Your family pets understand if you are stressed, add to that the vanishing belongings and they can truly get upset. Board your pets the day before the movers come and pick them up on your way out of town. Bring their beds, food, water, and toys for the trip and make them your last duty.

Now buckle up, relax, and appreciate a disaster-free ride to your new house.
