moving tips

          Preparing for the Move

o   Sort through your possessions and decide what you MUST take with you and what you WANT to take with you. 

o   Use the floor plan for your new residence to help choose the furnishings.

o   Stage your home for sale -deep clean, paint, update, etc.

o   Pre-pack items for your next home.

o   De-clutter the items no longer needed (sell/donate/toss).

o   Shred documents.

o   Prepare the charity items and schedule of pick-up.

o   Hire Paxem to pack your items and manage the movers you've hired.

o   Hire a cleaning service to deep clean your new home.  Change and/or clean the carpet before you move in. 

o   If you are able to move out before the home is sold, hire Paxem to hold your estate sale.

o   Notify your bank, professional services, friends, family and all important people that you are moving and give them your    new address.

o   Notify the electric company, water company, gas company, garbage company and cable company that you are moving and give them a date 1 week after your actual move-out date.  If there are delays you don't want to be stuck without service.
