National Moving Month in Phoenix
May is finally here, which means it’s National Moving Month and the kickoff to moving season. Many folks such as yourself are gearing up for a big move to Phoenix or other cities in the United States. You may have a moving checklist of tasks to complete such as booking our Arizona movers to lend you a hand, making last-minute payments on the new home, and installing home security system in the new home. However, there are many other important tasks you must complete before moving to Phoenix. Not to worry since our Phoenix movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage can give the 411 to facilitate your move to Phoenix this National Moving Month.
Change Your Address
Before you do anything else for your big move to Phoenix, get started on changing your address with various places of importance. Not updating your address in time may lead to a delay in mail delivery or home services. Start with your local post office as this is the very place where you receive mail and packages. You can either fill out a “change of address” form in-person or go on the United States Postal Service website  to do so from home. By doing this, you’re given enough time to update your address with other places of importance since this allows mail to be forwarded to the new address for about a year.
Once you’ve updated your address with the post office, contact relevant utility companies to guarantee you’ll have electricity, gas, and water running once you move to Phoenix. The last thing you want is to arrive to the new home in the dark, with no air conditioning or heat on. Make sure to contact utility companies to schedule a service activation for the new address and a service cancellation for the old address. Do this about a week or two before your moving day to avoid extra charges for the old residence.
De-Clutter & Donate
If you believe you have a copious amount of junk to move, de-clutter before choosing our Phoenix packing services. The more useless junk you move to your new home, the more effort and money it may cost. Take the time out of your schedule to go through pantries, closets, and storage bins to sort out miscellaneous items. Once you’ve done so, you can donate them to charities such as the Salvation Army, Goodwill, or Habitat for Humanity to give back to those in need.
Depending on how long the journey is for your move to Phoenix, you may need to prepare an overnight bag. For National Moving Month, our Phoenix long-distance movers recommend preparing a special kit for the family to help maintain everyone’s sanity during the move to Phoenix. The overnight kit should include items like a change of clothes, toiletries, water, snacks, and a portable power bank to keep everyone’s phones charged.
