What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Missouri?
When you find your new home, take measurements, which will help you identify what furniture will fit in your new home and what items you may need to reconsider moving. Next, create a floor plan as this will be essential on moving day. About eight weeks out, start organizing your commodities. The items that you are moving should be labeled. Describe what is in the box, what room the box should be placed in, if the items are fragile, and if you should open this box first. If you have complicated wiring systems, take a picture of them to reference when the time comes to rewire in your new home. Next, decide to sell, donate, or trash the items that are no longer useful.
When these steps are completed, call All My Sons Moving & Storage. You will pick the level of insurance and moving date you would like. Also, verify with building maintenance (if applicable) if you need to follow any specific moving rules. Plus, check with the town if you need special parking permits for moving trucks.
Who Do I Need to Tell When I Move to Missouri?
First, you should tell your employer you are moving. Let them know you need a few days off and update your information with payroll. If you have children, enroll them in their new schools, and transfer their medical paperwork. For pets, schedule an appointment with the vet. You should update them on their vaccinations and obtain their paperwork, ID tags, and medications.
Contact your utility companies to have a final meter reading, and turn on your utilities at your new home including, electricity, gas, trash, cable, water, and sewage. It is also good to have emergency numbers on hand, such as public safety or other essential public agencies.
Finally, contact the DMV to update your license and registration. Change your address with the Post Office, and contact your bank, credit card company, and other lenders. Remember to cancel or change your memberships and subscriptions. If applicable, call the Department of Veteran Affairs, Social Security Administration, IRS, and insurance.
What Should I Do Two Weeks Before Moving to Missouri?
The clock is winding down. It is time to deep clean your home. Donate any food you are not able to consume to a food bank. Return miscellaneous items to family and friends, plus return your library books and pick up your dry cleaning. Check the weather channel for updates on your upcoming moving day. Buy plenty of liquids to stay hydrated, and take money out to tip your movers. Finally, unplug your freezer, and drain your water hoses.
