What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Alabama?
When you are ready to move to Alabama, take measurements of your new home and make a floor plan. This visual will help you identify what items you will be moving and what you need to leave behind. When you have finalized the floor plan, separate your belongings into four piles: trash, donate, sell and take. For the items you are moving, label the boxes legibly. Include the contents within the box, which room you would like it, if it is fragile, and if it should be open first. This will be helpful to you and the movers on your moving day.
Once this step is complete, call All My Sons Moving & Storage to get your FREE no-obligation quote. We will discuss the level of insurance and what moving date you would like. Be sure to check if your building or HOA has special moving regulations or if you need a specific parking permit for the moving truck.
Who Do I Need to Tell When I Move to Alabama?
When you are ready to move to Alabama, you need to notify your employer to request days off and update your information with payroll. If you have children, you need to enroll them in school. If you are a pet owner, schedule an appointment with the veterinarian to ensure they have all their vaccinations, paperwork, medications, and ID tags.
If applicable, call and update your information with the IRS, Social Security Administration, Veterans Affairs, insurance companies, banks, credit card companies, and any other lenders. Change your license and registration with the Alabama DMV, and update and forward your mail with the United States Post Office. Remember to cancel subscriptions and memberships, and also contact your utility companies to get a final meter reading. Then, turn on your trash, cable, gas, electricity, water, and sewage services to your new home.
What Should I Do Two Weeks Before Moving to Alabama?
When you are a couple of weeks out from moving day, it is time to start cleaning your home. Donate any food to a local food bank if you don’t think you will be able to consume it before you move. Pick up drinks to stay hydrated on moving day, and get cash to tip your movers. Pick up your dry cleaning, return any items that you borrowed from family or friends, and don't forget to return library books! We suggest backing up your computer and, last but not least, defrost your freezer and drain your water hoses.
What Do I Do on Moving Day?
On moving day, protect your walls and floors. When the movers start to load your belongings onto the truck, make sure you are doing an audit. If there are damages that occur during the move, file a claim. Use your floor map and labels to direct the movers to which room you would like your belongings in. Once the move is complete, tip the movers and write a review of the move. If you were previously renting, don’t forget to do a final inspection with your landlord. Return their key, and, hopefully, you will receive your deposit back. Congratulations on moving to Alabama! All My Sons Moving & Storage hopes you found this list helpful.
