National Moving Month: Tips & Tricks in Richmond

Now that you’ve decided to move to Richmond, Virginia within the upcoming months, it’s time to start hopping on top of important relocation tasks. Such tasks may include contacting our Virginia moving company to help you move into the new home, installing a security system within the home, making any last-minute payments for the new home, and so on. However, since May is National Moving Month, our Richmond movers of All My Sons Moving & Storage can provide useful tips to help facilitate your move this upcoming moving season.

Sort & Organize

Before you choose our Richmond packing services to have your valuables securely packed by our Virginia movers, take the time to sort through how much you must move and discard anything you no longer want. The more items you sort through, the more likely your load to move to Richmond will be that much lighter.  

Have a pile of books you no longer have use for? Feel free to donate them to local schools and libraries as they’re always in need of a new inventory of books. On the other hand, if you’re having trouble parting ways with your books, you can always ship them to your new home via the Media Mail Service by the U.S.P.S. For about $12, you can ship a box filled with 20 pounds worth of books to your new home.

Change Address

Of course, you can’t move to Richmond without updating your address with various places of importance, first. Failure to do so can lead to delays in mail delivery and home services. For National Moving Month, visit your local post office about two weeks before Moving Day to fill out a change of address form or go online to fill it out at the U.S.P.S. official site.

Furthermore, change your address with the proper utility companies, as well. The last thing you want after moving to Richmond is to arrive at the new home with no electricity, water, nor gas. About a week before the move, contact the appropriate utility companies to cancel utility services at the old address to prevent from acquiring extra charges. Then, schedule service activation for the new address to ensure you’ll have all utilities active once you move.
