If you are planning to move out-of-state from somewhere in the Southern New England area, it is important to work with a local and interstate moving service that can get you where you need to go. Choosing just any old West Yarmouth moving company won’t cut it. You need to work with a company that has experience facilitating residential moves throughout the northeastern region. Statewide Moving Company has been serving residential and commercial clients for many years, providing expert moving services in Massachusetts for local, interstate and specialty relocation situations. You can count on this team of knowledgeable and highly trained movers to help you have a truly worry-free moving experience.
Start Making Your Plans
The first thing you need to do is to sit down and make some basic plans. Your overall moving plan will evolve to include more details as time progresses, but until then, it’s a good idea to make a basic overview of what needs to be done. If you are selling your home you will obviously need to make arrangements with your real estate agent to plan your schedule around the sale of the property. If you are renting, make sure to give at least 30-days notice to your landlord or any other time frame specified in your rental agreement. Once you know your approximate moving date, you can start making more solid plans for your move.
You can begin by contacting a representative at Statewide Moving Company. We will provide you with a FREE estimate of our services based upon when and where you need to move, as well as how large of a truck and crew will be required to facilitate your move. In addition to our basic moving services in Massachusetts for residential clients, we also offer packing services to those who want a full service move and packing supplies for those who want to pack their things themselves. Make sure to ask about other services that can be included in your moving plans, such as local storage options, custom crating and moving protection.
For best results, Statewide Moving Company suggests that you contact our team regarding your move approximately six weeks out from your desired moving date. This will ensure plenty of time to secure our team for your big moving day and will also give you enough time to pack your things or bring our team in to pack everything for you.
Make a To-Do List
You should also make a list of all the things that you need to do for your move, such as closing out the utility accounts at your current address and having them turned on at the new place. Include the phone numbers or website addresses for these accounts, along with your account number and important information details, so you will have everything you need to complete this task. If you had a security deposit at your current address for your electric or gas, make sure to ask about getting that returned to you once you pay your final bill and close out the account. Provide your new address to the old utility companies for any extra charges, refunds or close-out confirmations.
If you have children, make sure to get everything you need locally for them to change schools. Information from your pediatrician’s office – and from the family physician as well – along with shot records, school records, and anything else that you might need to get them registered. Older children will require transfer information and records, so speak with their teacher and the school principal to make sure you get everything that the new school will require. Contact the new school district as well to find out if any additional information will be needed. Each district – and state, for out-of-state moves – will have different requirements for registration of new students.
Start Packing Early
Try to see this local and interstate moving experience as an opportunity to go through your things and get rid of excess stuff that you don’t need. Even if you will be having our West Yarmouth moving company take care of all the packing for you, you can start by packing up things you don’t use all the time, such as seasonal equipment, toys, outdoor gear, holiday decorations, and family keepsakes. Make sure to contact Statewide Moving Company for all of the professional quality packing supplies that you will need, including boxes, packing tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, tissue paper and specialty boxes for things like flat screen televisions, wall art and other valuables. The sooner you can start packing or sorting through your things, the easier the rest of your move will be. There are a lot of different ways that you can benefit from moving services in Massachusetts.
If you are downsizing or making a temporary move due to a job relocation or financial situation, consider putting some of your things into Statewide Moving Company storage. Moving to a smaller place can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. You can place the excess furniture, keepsakes and other items that you want to keep, but won’t have the space to use, into our secure storage warehouse. Our storage area is heated to protect your valuables in the coldest New England winter, protected by smoke detectors, sprinklers and pest control, alarmed and protected by round-the-clock security services, and we even have space for specialty items like pianos and organs.
