Main Line Helpful Relocation Tips

With the right resources and the right real estate professional on your side, you'll have the keys to your country home in no time. Follow these tips to make your move as easy as possible.

Plan Your Move Ahead of Time

Begin planning for your relocation at least a month or two before your move. The sooner you can pack and coordinate with the moving company, the better. During this stage, be sure to...

  • Stock up on packing materials — boxes, tape, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap are great choices
  • Start small — begin packing one room at a time so you don't get overwhelmed
  • Be selective about what you pack — host a yard sale to get rid of any unused items, or consider donating to a local charity
  • Review all moving documents before signing — this is vital if you are planning to use professional movers

As Moving Day Approaches

In the days and weeks leading up to your move, finish packing all of your belongings into boxes. Don't forget to...

  • Label everything — consider marking each box by the room it belongs to
  • Pack fragile items last — be sure to wrap glassware in bubble wrap, towels, or winter clothing for extra protection

During the Move

On Moving Day, keep as much important information within reach as possible. That way, you'll have easy access to the essentials if you need to get to them quickly. Be sure to...

  • Prepare an "essentials bag" — this can include a change of clothes, paperwork, medications, and a phone charger
  • Make an "open me first" box pack items like toilet paper, instant coffee, and a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress just in case you beat the moving truck to your new home
  • Wait to unpack — once you arrive to your new home, take the time to clean your home while it's empty
