Are you moving someplace new? Congratulations! We at Postal Xpress N More wish you all the best as you start this new chapter of your life. Regardless of whether you’re hopping states or moving countries, there are several things to keep in mind before you make the big move! We’ve compiled some of the top priorities to share with you.

Pace Your Packing

There is nothing more stressful than trying to pack up all of your belongings the night before you move. We recommend pacing yourself and beginning the packing process as soon as you know you will be moving. Try to pack two boxes or so per night until the big move. You’ll feel much less stressed about the workload, and you’ll be able to go through what you want to keep and what you don’t without the pressure of the clock on you as well.

Switch Your Utilities

Timing is the secret to switching your utility bills to your new address successfully. As soon as you know the closing date, it’s time to call your utility companies and inform them of your move. This is especially vital to do if you are moving into a newly built home or a home that was vacant before. You may need to arrange a call with maintenance to set up service again if service had been discontinued.

Move the Basics First if Possible

If you are moving someplace nearby, it might be helpful to unpack the bathroom and move over a few sets of clothing. That will make the unpacking process smoother since you won’t be scrambling to find your toothbrush! If you are moving someplace far away and unpacking some items early isn’t a possibility, have no fear. You can always pack an overnight bag to keep with you so you have them ready once you arrive.

Get Closure on Your Old Home

You probably made many memories in this home, especially if you have a family. Take an afternoon to go through the home and recall your favorite memories from each room. This will help you leave with happy memories of your house and give you some closure. In order to get excited about your new home, browse sites like Pinterest and mark your favorite design ideas. You’ll be excited to start new projects and turn your new house into your dream home.

Get a Virtual Mailbox Rental

As you move, you may be worried about your mail. After all, the postal service usually won’t forward mail longer than a year after your move, which can be troublesome at times. Don’t let that get in the way of your needs. When you decide a virtual mailbox from Postal Xpress N More is for you, you can use any device to tell us where you are. You will receive your normal, physical mail and packages straight to your door – no matter where you might be! Just choose your plan and you’ll begin receiving notifications when something arrives for you. Contact us today to get started!
