We understand that moving your family can be scary but exciting at the same time. Our Tennessee moving company is here to take the stress out of your move so that you can focus on the exciting part.
Is Tennessee a Good Place to Move?
Before you start making big plans, you want to make sure the great state of Tennessee is right for you. Known as the “Volunteer State” for its role in the War of 1812, Tennessee is all about its southern hospitality. The state boasts lower tax rates and cost of living than the national average, along with some of the prettiest scenery. The south may be an acquired taste, but our Tennessee movers believe everyone who chooses the Volunteer State has made the right choice.
What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Tennessee?
When it becomes apparent that a move is in your near future, so much can flow through your mind. There’s a sense of excitement for the new, and a fear of the change ahead. One thing synonymous with moving is stress. This is one of the most time-consuming tasks a person will come across in their life. No matter how many moves you go through, if you’re not prepared, moving can feel overwhelming. As some of the most experienced Tennessee movers, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to moving, including all the tasks you might have forgotten to consider otherwise.
The first thing to do when moving into any house is to break out the measuring tape. Go through all of your rooms and measure the dimensions. This will help you better visualize your new living space and prepare you for packing. Jot down a floor plan for your new house and start packing boxes with corresponding labels attached. Try to declutter as best you can while stowing away your belongings. For the items that have no value to you, let them go. You can usually donate slightly used items. Our team of professional movers suggests making four piles: taking, tossing, donating, and selling.
If you’d rather hand off the stresses of packing, reach out to All My Sons Moving & Storage. We have the best packing services in Murfreesboro and the rest of Tennessee. We supply our packing equipment and use our industry expertise.
Once you have just the items you are keeping, call All My Sons Moving & Storage to discuss insurance and difficult items that need to be handled carefully, like a piano. Double-check with HOAs and city rules and regulations such as special moving parking permits.
Who Do I Need to Contact When I Move to Tennessee?
When your move is on the horizon, it can be easy to get caught up in getting your house ready to move. There are so many other details you have to iron out regarding a change of address, and many of them will take place over the phone. Tell your employer you need to update your payroll information, request time off, and see if you are eligible for a tax deduction. If you have children, contact their schools; if you have pets, contact their veterinarian. You will also need to notify your current and new utility companies. Schedule the day and time for them to come out and take the final meter readings, as well as to turn on your new home’s utilities. There is a more detailed list of other important contacts you should call on the All My Sons Moving & Storage Moving Checklist, so be sure to check it out.
There are a few companies you should keep in mind when it comes to Tennessee utilities. Their availability will fluctuate depending on the county or city you live in, so make sure you check your city or state government’s site for more information.
What Do I Do on Moving Day?
Did you get some good rest? We know how difficult it is to get a good night’s sleep before a move. But hopefully, you're well-rested and ready to take on the day. There’s still a lot of work ahead, but if you count on the efforts of our team at All My Sons Moving & Storage, you will be well on your way to a successful moving day.
Before the moving truck arrives, make sure your walls and floors are protected. Lay out some plastic on the floor, and create a makeshift barrier along the walls to prevent unnecessary scuffs and blemishes. Our professional team of movers in Tennessee has a system in place when it comes to filling the moving truck, so let the experts take the lead.
When you arrive at your new home, keep track of your items as they are taken off the moving truck, and report any potential damages. Have a friend or family member advise our team where the furniture goes using the labels you created. If you are renting the new space, do not forget to do a final inspection with your landlord.
And there you have it, you are all set! Tip your movers, write a review, and start settling into your new home!
