MOVING TIPS...

The key for a smooth move is to be organized.
Use our Nashville apartment guide to plan
ahead of time and help simplify the relocation process.

 

The moving industry has a "peak" and "off peak" seasons. The "peak" season for movers is during the summer. Also the beginning and the end of the month or end of the year holidays are extra busy for movers. During that period of time the demand for moving equipment, vans, and personnel is heavy.

If you decide to do your own packing, get packing supplies and start collecting strong boxes suitable for moving. Complete all your packing by moving day.

If your company is relocating you, find out what portion of your moving expense will be paid by your company.

Obtain a written appraisal of antiques to verify their value. Do not retouch, wax or oil wood furniture before moving. Some products may soften the wood, making it vulnerable to imprinting from furniture pads.

30 TO 60 DAYS BEFORE THE MOVE

Sell, give away, or discard anything you do not want to take to your new Nashville apartment.

Return all the things you have borrowed.

Collect all the things you have lent.

Make airline and hotel reservations in Nashville if necessary.

Prepare an inventory of everything you will be moving. Do this room by room.

Write down the model and serial numbers of all appliances and devices.

Notify the post office of your change of address. Visit the United States Postal Service website to obtain the proper form.

Notify your insurance company that you are moving.

Arrange to disconnect telephone, water, and electricity from your old apartment on the day after your move. Don't forget to arrange for any deposits to be returned.

Arrange to have the telephone, water, and electricity connected at your new Nashville apartment on the day of your move..

Get estimates from a few moving companies, or if you're moving yourself, make reservations for the truck, trailer, dolly, etc.

Collect all valuable documents, make copies of each one, and place the originals in a safe location. The copies should be placed in another location. These important documents include birth and marriage certificates, medical records, military records, school records, deeds, wills, passports, insurance binders, vehicle registrations, pet 

records, and all other documents that would be difficult or impossible to obtain otherwise.

Give the moving company the exact address in Nashville where you will be moving to, indicate the major intersections, and if needed, provide them with a map and if possible a cell phone number that you can be reached at.

1 TO 10 DAYS BEFORE THE MOVE

Pack suitcases with the personal items you will need until the move is completed and you will have had time to unpack.

Make a list of the items you will take with you in your car. If possible, place them all together in one room.

Make labels clearly marked DO NOT MOVE for the items that the movers will not be moving. For your own peace of mind, place them all together in one room.

THE DAY OF THE MOVE HAS ARRIVED!

Pack toiletries and other personal items

Put the items you will be taking with you to your Nashville apartment in the trunk of the car and lock it.

Be around the movers: they may have questions that only you can answer.

Get copies of any papers you sign.

When the loading is complete, walk around each room to make sure that nothing has been left behind.
