In the year 2010, there were 6.7 million families that relocated. These kinds of moves happen for a variety of reasons. Nearly 45% of people have moved in order to accept a new job or to continue a current job in a new city. In other cases, members of the armed forces may need to make a military move with their families to a new base. No matter what the exact reason for relocation, moving pods may be just the medium for transporting your possessions to your new home.
It can be very easy for what seem like common sense tasks to slip your mind during all the craziness of moving. Here are some very helpful tips to keep in mind to ensure that your transition is a smooth one. First and foremost, a hassle free move depends on clear communication with the moving company. This means that there should be no ambiguity as to the cost of the move itself. To this end, you will need to itemize all the things that you plan on transporting, share the list and show the movers where these items are to make certain that nothing is left behind. Pods storage can be a great way to keep all these possessions secure and organized for the moving company.
When packing your items away, you may want to consider designating one box as your “Survival Box,” which will contain all the essential items you will need as soon as you move to your new destination. These may include an extra set of clothes, a cell phone charger, pillows, and even a coffee maker. This box should be put into the pod last so that it is the first to be taken out.
Finally, to be absolutely sure that there will be no hiccups in terms of utility costs or starting your life in your new home right, you will want to contact your old energy company to have them shut off your utilities the day after you leave, while having the utilities in your new home turned on the day before you get there. This way, you can get right to the new day ahead of you.
