What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Oklahoma?
Moving to Oklahoma can be challenging, but All My Sons Moving & Storage has made a moving checklist to help you. When starting to plan your move, it is best to begin eight weeks out. First, we suggest you measure and create a floor map of your new home. This step will help you decide what you are taking with you, donating, selling, and trashing.
If you are donating or selling items, check out the All My Sons Moving checklist for tips and suggestions. If you need to recycle and trash unwanted items, make sure you do so appropriately. In Oklahoma City, you can enter your street address and find your next trash, recycling, or bulky waste pick-up date. For hazardous materials, bring your items to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Make sure you bring your city water bill as proof of residency.
Once you know what items you are moving, call All My Sons Moving & Storage Oklahoma to schedule an appointment and obtain a quote. Decide on the level of insurance and liability you would like, and choose a moving day. Clarify if you are moving any bulky items such as a piano, pool table, or grandfather clock, and make sure you check out the Oklahoma gun laws before moving any firearms. After receiving your quote, you may need to obtain a parking permit or talk to your building management to ensure you follow their moving regulations.
Who Do I Need to Tell When I Move to Oklahoma?
It is time to notify your employer, update your payroll information, request time-off, and see if you are eligible for any job-related tax-deductible expenses. If it is necessary to book hotel accommodations, do so now. If you have children, you need to contact their new schools to register them and transfer their school records. Also, if you have pets, you should schedule an appointment to verify your pet is up-to-date with all their vaccines and gather their paperwork, ID tags, and medication. Remember to contact your cable, internet, phone provider, water, sewage, garbage, gas, electricity, security system, DMV, Post Office, contractors, doctors, insurance, Department of Veteran Affairs, IRS, credit cards, loans, banks, subscriptions, gym, accountant, Amazon account, Social Security Administration, sitters, auto mechanic (maintenance your car before you travel) and gather important numbers, including the police station, fire station, and public utility company.
What Should I Do Two Weeks Before Moving to Oklahoma?
Back up your computer, return library books, pick up dry cleaning, donate any unwanted food, and make a moving day playlist. All My Sons Moving Company also suggests you make a moving kit, where you will keep your cash, keys to your new home, directions, personal information, and your most important possessions. This is the perfect time to clean your home while everything is primarily inside of boxes.
The day before the move, you will want to check the weather channel as well as go to the ATM for cash to tip your movers. Have your gas, electric, and water meters read. Drain hoses for the washing machine, ice maker, and don’t forget to unplug the fridge.
What Do I Do on Moving Day in Oklahoma?
Order food in the morning, and make sure you have plenty of water to stay hydrated. Protect your floors and walls, and then audit your belongings with your movers as they load them onto the truck. While they are unloading, note any damages or missing items to file a claim later. If you are moving out of a rental property, do a final inspection with your landlord. Give back the key and obtain your deposit. Voilà! Your move is finished. Don’t forget to write a review!
