Alright! It is time to start packing those boxes and deciding if you are going to hire movers/boxers to move you or if you are going to do it yourself.
Call now to get moving estimates and secure a mover as they often get booked up weeks in advance. Also, if you’re moving into a condo building check with the HOA President or Property Management Company to see if you need to pay any move in fees, reserve an elevator, or if there are move in restrictions, etc.
Remember that you can’t move into your new place until closing is finished as that is when you’re given the keys. Unfortunately, we can’t reserve a specific time for closing in advance although we can request AM or PM. AM usually starts around 9am and PM usually starts sometime between 1 – 3pm. Allow 3 hours for closing, although we’ll hope to be done sooner than that. For instance, if your closing starts at 9am expect you might not be done until noon then allow time to get to your new place before the movers arrive. Usually we don’t know the exact time/location of closing until a few days before closing.
Start gathering boxes and packing supplies.
Moving is incredibly stressful on pets, so I would highly recommend having them stay with a friend or at the sitters for at minimum the moving day, ideally a few days while you get settled.
