Helpful Relocating Tips

With Stacy's help, Denise and Ivan Lowe sold their Long Island home and relocated to a retirement community in central Florida.
If your upcoming relocation has you feeling a bit overwhelmed, there are ways to make the transition easier. One way to ease your mind during the process is to make a list of everything that needs to be done. The following are some helpful tips for a successful relocation:
  • Make a separate calendar for your moving tasks. Use it to develop an eight-week plan. This is the minimum planning time needed for a stress-free relocation.
  • Obtain a floor plan of your new home. Based on the size of the new place, decide what you will take with you and what you will have to leave behind.
  • Start cleaning out junk drawers, linen closets, the basement and attic. Don't pack and move things that you don't use.
  • Start a file with all your moving information such as receipts and important contact numbers.
  • Ask your friends for referrals of reliable moving companies, and then call for estimates.
  • Start collecting boxes and begin packing nonessential items.
  • Subscribe to the local newspaper in your new town. This is a good way to become familiar with the community before you arrive.
  • Contact utility companies, the post office and others to inform them of the move and provide them with your new address.
  • Call the visitor and tourism center in your new area to request maps and other important information.
  • A few days before the move, pack a first-night kit to take with you in the car. Suggested items include a coffeemaker, flashlight, blankets, pillows, towels, toiletries, pans, easy-to-cook canned food, a can opener, paper plates, trash bags and toilet paper.
  • On the day of the move, pack essentials in your car. These items may include such things as the dog's leash and food, the first-night kit mentioned above, your child's favorite toys, prescription medicine, and other items you cannot be without.

Stacy's support allowed Amrish Patel, pictured at the October 2016 closing with his buyers, to sell his Long Island home and transition to his new job in Texas.
