There might be a few things worse than moving on a night only to get to your new apartment and notice electricity out of work because you forgot to transfer the utilities, and you won't be able to reach the utility company until morning. You should arrange your utilities at least a week before you move. While you are moving to an in-same service area, most companies will help you transfer your account from one address to a new one online.
Forgetting Your Insurance Policy In the worst scenario, damages could be inevitable since the mover carelessness or other reasons. Your TV can be broken. How retrieve your losses? If you didn't check insurance, no one would pay you. It would help if you inquired about the moving company to clarify its insurance policy ahead of time. Most of the moving companies' insurance policies use weight to value your belongings. If the policy reimburses you for 90 cents per pound of damaged items, meaning your expensive lightweight items such as electronics will not be adequately covered. The mover's liability policy or rental/homeowners' insurance policy can cover your stuff, so you'll be protected. If those options are not suitable for you, purchase higher coverage insurance before your moving day.
If you haven't managed to finish packing your belongings when the movers arrive, it means there is a big problem that turns moving day into a disaster. It would be best if you started packing earlier than required due to unexpected issues, even several weeks in advance. You should have a look at our packing hacks tips. To make the moving more manageable and less stressful, you should aim to tackle a project by a day – such as the items in your garage or decluttering belongings in the spare room – and work up to more significant works like the bathroom or the kitchen.
By the excuse of time pressure, if you did not organize boxes properly at your new home, a real challenge awaits you with truckload unorganized boxes. This will add a lot of stress to your first night in your new place. Instead, you should check that each package is well-packed, fragile belongings are wrapped, and the outside is clearly labeled with the targeted room. Prepare a moving day bag that makes things really easy on yourself, such as toilet paper, towels, flashlights, and medications, and keep the bag with you.
