Simple Tips for Making a Smooth Move to California

Simple Tips for Making a Smooth Move to California

As if selling a house, finding a new one, and going through the whole buying process wasn’t stressful enough, now it’s time for you to move! Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do before, during, and after your move to California that will make the whole experience less overwhelming — and the experts at Jeff Biebuyck & Dana Olmes Luxury Homes are always here to help! Below are several examples of ways you can make the process smoother.

Planning the Move

The better the plan, the smoother your moving experience will work out to be.

●      About six to eight weeks before the move, start looking for a reputable moving company.

●      About a month prior to your move, make any arrangements necessary for your pets, such as getting a pet sitter or making reservations at a care facility.

●      Also, start packing up all the items you are taking with you about a month before you move.

Preparing the New Home

There are many things that you can do to get your new home ready before you move in. Here are a few of them.

●      Take measurements of the interior spaces in your new home so you’ll know which pieces of furniture and other items you can bring with you.

●      Make sure all of your utilities are set up before you move in; otherwise, you could be in for an uncomfortable first week.

●      Also, be sure to clean any carpeting in the home (typically costs between $25 and $75 per room).

●      And of course, if your new home needs any urgent repairs, take care of those as soon as possible.


Making for a Smooth Moving Day

When it’s time for moving day, here are a few things you can do to make sure it goes well.

●      Have a family member or friend politely supervise the movers as they move your belongings and pack their truck; that way, you can stay ahead of the game if there is any damage.

●      Hire a cleaning service to go through your old home after the movers leave (or do it yourself).

●      And do a quick cleaning of your new home before it’s time to load in your belongings.

●      Use plastic floor protectors to safely move your belongings into your new home, and organize as you unpack.

Moving can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Be sure to carefully plan out your move months before, take any necessary steps to get your new home ready, and arrange for your moving day to go as smoothly as possible. In no time, you’ll be settling into your new dream home in the Golden State!
