You've bought your dream home and it's perfect! It has curb appeal, plenty of storage, and that breakfast nook you've always wanted.Now you just have to move in! If you just cringed, you're not alone. Whether it's your first move or tenth, moving can be daunting and stressful!Organizing, packing, changing your address, cleaning your old home...it's not fun. To help you stay sane during this process On Q Financial, Inc. has developed this twelve-week moving checklist to help guide you to a successful move!
Label boxes by room and contents
Begin packing non-essential items
Create an inventory list of items and box contents, including serial numbers of major items - use this as an opportunity to update your home inventory
Separate valuable items to transport yourself - label as DO NOT MOVE
Schedule disconnection/connection of utilities at old and new place
Plan your moving method (truck rental, hiring movers, etc.) and get cost estimates
Notify your insurance and credit card companies about change of address
Plan how you will move vehicles, plants, pets and valuables
Try and use up perishable food
Schedule cancellation of services for your old place such as newspaper, housecleaning, lawn, pool, or water delivery services
Continue cleaning the house as you are packing
2-4 Days Before Move In
Confirm all moving details and that you have necessary paperwork
Find useful things for your children to do - involve them as much as possible
Make a schedule or action plan for the day of the move
Pack a bag for water bottles, pen/paper, snacks, documents, and essentials
Make sure essential tools are handy (screwdrivers, wrench, pliers, tape, etc.)

"I had a wonderful experience buying my home. I found a home I love fairly quickly. I was out of town almost the whole 30 day process of escrow. Doug and Serena went above and beyond to help me. As a single mom and working out of town, trying to manage everything by myself, Doug and Serena made everything an easy process."
