5 Quick Steps to Move From City to City

Mobile storage units for rent are a wonderful choice when you’re moving from city to city. They are a convenient alternative to renting a traditional moving truck. You can say “goodbye” to what seems like a million trips up and down the moving van ramp.

Read the following five steps, in effort to alleviate some of the stress involved in planning a move.

Call Your Realtor or Landlord

Let them know when you plan to move and schedule a home inspection. It’s better to deal with this issue while you’re still in the area, rather than after you’ve moved.

Schedule Everything

Working out a schedule can keep a move from interfering with your life. If you have any pets, think about how and when they’ll be moved. If you’re still working, while preparing for your move, be sure to work out time to pack and otherwise prepare your belongings.

Finally, make sure services such as power and water are available to you as soon as you get to your new home.

Keep Track of Your Moving Expenses

Before you decide to move at all, you should make sure you know that you can afford to move and survive in a new home until you get your first paycheck. Your new employer might offer some help with relocation, but fewer and fewer companies are offering relocation benefits.

Make a folder to store all of your paperwork and receipts associated with your move. Not only will this help you stay organized, it will also help you the next time you file taxes.

Turn in Your Two Weeks Notice

Before you move, use up any personal days you have available. These may be good days to visit your new city and take care of things there.

When you do give notice, keep it as professional as possible by informing your employers ahead of time that you’re no longer going to be working there. Not only does it give your employers time to find a replacement, but it may also lead to a positive recommendation at your new place of employment by your previous boss.

Get to Your New City Before You Have to Start Your New Job

Make sure you’ll have enough time to unpack and get settled before you start work. You may want to travel to your new workplace and back to get a feel for commute times. Also, make sure you get to know your new town, so you know where to go for goods and services when time is short.

Bonus Tip: Look into Mobile Storage for Rent

The best solution is to store your items in a mobile container, which can either be stored on your property, or at the supplier’s secure storage facility.  At Go Mini’s, we help families keep their items safe and protected in vented, galvanized steel exterior containers, which allows the family the ability to show their home in all its glory, uncluttered and inviting.
