Reed Moore’s Things To Do
Your Spring Move-In Guide
Week Six: Remember to Not Forget
The moving date nears. With less than one month from your move, you have probably realized by now that you must address the issue of your incoming mail. Fortunately, the United States Post Office makes it easy to schedule the switch online. They will forward your mail to your new destination worry-free.
What’s more, if you have any regular service providers, say, for a landscaping service, you should thank them and inform them that you will no longer be needing their services.
Note if you haven’t told your friends and family that you’re moving, you might want to do that now, too. But if you’re going for the element of surprise, then, by all means, use discretion.
Finally, if you have children, you may want to schedule a babysitter for the moving day. You don’t need to be worried about more than you can handle, especially during such a big day.
