3 Important Tasks to Complete Before Moving

There are always numerous tasks necessary in order to execute a move. In fact, we get so caught up with the other aspects of moving that we often forget the important documents to update or have prepared before moving and are left with delayed services and lost mail. All My Sons Moving & Storage Rhode Island is here to remind you about 3 important tasks to complete before moving.


Medical Records

If you are moving to a new school district, it is a good idea to make sure are up to date with their vaccines to protect them and other kids from certain diseases and infections. Ask the pediatrician for your children’s medical records so you have proper paperwork on hand to enroll them into their new school. New schools usually need documentation that your child has been vaccinated and whether or not they have a medical condition the school should accommodate. This is a vital task to complete before moving if you have children and are going to a new area.

Our Rhode Island movers also recommend you always keep your medical records on you as well. As parents, we forget to take care of ourselves but moving is physically and mentally draining. If you do happen to get sick or injured, accessing your medical records won’t be hard.


Pet Vaccinations

Your pets are part of the family too, so along with your and your children’s medical records, make sure you request your pet’s medical records from the vet as well. Another important task to complete before moving is making sure your pets are up to date on their vaccines and rabies shots. Especially if you’re moving long-distance to another state, you should check the rabies regulations in the area where you are moving to ensure you have everything in order. A lot of apartments will not even allow your pet if they do not have proper documentation stating they have been vaccinated. This is also a good precaution to take if your pet escapes and accidentally bites someone.


Vehicle Registration & Driver’s License

If you are moving out of state, you should have your vehicle registration and your driver’s license updated. Depending on the state and what their rules and regulations are, some states request that your license and car match the state where you claim residency. As an extra precaution, don’t forget to have your car serviced before you move. Buy new tires, schedule an oil change, and make sure it is in optimal condition to handle a long-distance drive.
