What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Pennsylvania?
All My Sons Moving & Storage suggests that you should get the dimensions of your new home to create a floor plan. This will help you visualize what you need to move and what items you can get rid of. This floor plan will be useful on the day of the move to let our movers know where you would like your belongings. Then begin to sort your belongings into four categories: trash, donate, sell and keep.
Once you have finished sorting your things and have a good idea of what you are moving, call All My Sons Moving & Storage to get your FREE no-obligation quote.

Who Do I Need to Tell When I Move to Pennsylvania?
Make sure you let your employer know you are moving. You may want to request time off, and be sure to update your address with payroll. Plus, you should verify if there are any tax deductions or paid expenses if this is a job-related move.
If you are a parent, enroll your child in school and transfer both their school and medical records. If you are a pet owner, schedule an appointment with your vet. Verify your pet is up-to-date on their vaccinations and get their paperwork, medications, and ID tags.
You will need to update your address with the Pennsylvania DMV, as well as the Post Office. If applicable, notify Veteran Affairs, Social Security Administrations, IRS, banks, lenders, credit card, and insurance companies.
Call your utility companies and schedule a final meter reading. Turn on your cable, gas, electricity, trash, water, and sewage services at your new home. You may also want to get pertinent numbers like public safety and other public agencies on hand.
What Should I Do Two Weeks Before Moving to Pennsylvania?
Two weeks out to your moving day, you will want to begin cleaning. Return any belongings, such as library books or other miscellaneous items. Don’t forget to pick up your dry cleaning! All My Sons Moving & Storage also suggests backing up your computer. If you find that you have a lot of food, you may want to consider donating it to a food bank instead of risking it getting spoiled while moving. Make sure you have the cash to tip your movers. Some folks suggest making a moving kit to store your personal information, money, and valuables that you keep on your person the day of the move. Finally, unplug your freezer and let it defrost, and also drain your water hoses.
What Do I Do On Moving Day?
On moving day, you should protect your walls and floors before the movers arrive. When the movers begin loading your belongings onto the truck, make sure you audit the boxes and note their condition. When the movers unload the moving truck, you need to audit them again. If any of your items were damaged on the journey, file an insurance claim. The floor plan and box labels will come in handy today to direct the movers where you would like your belongings. When everything is inside your new home, tip your movers and write a review.
