Well, we are not sure if moving usually counts as “fun”, but the time before moving day certainly does seem to pass quickly. So, moving day is merely a week away and you still have loose ends to tie up. Probably, you have been readying for moving day for the last couple months and just will need some suggestions on what you need to be getting done the last week prior to your move. If so, read on …

1) Unplug

Right now is the time to consider each of the appliances which will be moving along with you. Your refrigerator as well as freezer will require ample time in order to defrost prior to your move, so you might want to go ahead and empty them out and unplug them. Some types of washers and dryers might simply be unplugged and then transported, whereas others could require a professional to detach the gas line and also other preparations for transport. Consult your moving company in El Paso concerning the best method to move these specific things. Also, give some thought regarding how you will be transporting your TV and other electronics and plan accordingly.

If the professional movers in El Paso shall be packing for you, you can skip this suggestion, but if you are packing by yourself, go on reading. Currently, you should have packed up all your non-essential belongings. Now is the time to get packing on some of the indispensable items. Be certain to go through every closet and cabinet to make sure that you aren’t overlooking something. Now is also the time to confirm the attic, basement, garage and also shed. All power tools should be emptied of gasoline, because your moving company in El Paso likely cannot move them otherwise.

You should also have a separate box or bag that contains items that you may use right up until moving day. This box or bag can hold things such as medicines, change of clothes, snacks for the trip, etc.

4) Get in Touch with Your Utility Providers

Right now is a good time to get in touch with your utility providers to notify them of your upcoming move. If you are moving within the same town, you may be able to simply shift your service from your old residence to your new house. However, should your move be over a long distance, you will need to find out from your providers exactly what you should do to cancel your service. You don’t want to be billed for utility usage at your old residence after you have moved.
