Relocating to Denver: Moving Day Tips

Relocating to Denver - RE/MAX of Cherry Creek

Relocating to Denver is an exciting but daunting prospect. With your new job and dream home already taken care of, the next thing you need to focus is moving. There’s no question about it — moving a household can be stressful. Here are some ways to make your relocation run more smoothly.

.

Find a Moving Company

Ask your real estate agent to recommend reliable companies.

Once you identify three solid contenders, have each one come to your home and give you an estimate.

Check the companies out on the Internet to make sure that they are properly licensed to perform a long-distance move and that they have no complaints listed with the Better Business Bureau.

.

Get Your Belongings Under Control

It’s time to be ruthless. Everything you aren’t using should be sold or donated. The time to do it is now, not when you get to the new place.

A neat tip for kids who have a hard time letting go: Buy a photo album and let them take photos of the things they’ve outgrown, along with photos of the old house, to create a keepsake journal. This makes the move less traumatic for them and keeps them occupied while you pack.

.

Disconnect and Reconnect

Whatever your reason for relocating to Denver is, you’ll need utilities and services installed at the new house. You need to notify the post office and service providers at your old place of the date you’re leaving town as well.

Making a “master list” of chores that need to be done at both ends is a great visual reminder. It’s also a good idea to note both the date and service appointment times on a calendar, along with contact numbers of the companies.

Relocating to Denver is an exciting but daunting prospect. With your new job and dream home already taken care of, the next thing you need to focus is moving. There’s no question about it — moving a household can be stressful. Here are some ways to make your relocation run more smoothly.
