Your Summer Moving Checklist
A new home is one of the most exciting times in our lives. From choosing a community, through to picking out the perfect selections and finalizing every detail, it is always a busy time. And that’s before you even begin to think about moving into your brand new home!
With every Sterling Home, you can rest easy knowing you’ll have your very own Virtuo Home Concierge to help you plan, coordinate, and manage every detail of your move.
As summer quickly approaches, we asked Jess R., one of our expert Home Concierge for her insider tips for moving during the busy season!
“With the nicer weather and the end of the school year, summer is often the busiest time of the year for moving home. This means service providers and truck rental is often booked up in advance, and people want to get into their new home asap – so I often tell my clients it pays to plan ahead,” says Jess. “…and it doesn’t hurt to have a few trusted insiders on speed dial! Here are a few of my top tips for moving in summer.”
Top tips for a Summer Move
1. Plan your move!
With movers often booked up weeks in advance, having a ‘move window’ can work wonders for availability. Sometimes you can even get better rates simply by being flexible to move a day or two either side. And avoid unnecessary headaches by making sure they are fully insured!
2. Save money, save the environment
There are always those smaller items that need packing into boxes – but why buy new? It’s often cheaper to rent eco-friendly packing boxes. The Virtuo Eco-friendly box service includes free delivery and pickup.
3. Don’t break a sweat (let the pros pack it!)
If you’re pressed for time, you can request a professional packing service. We know of several professional movers who offer this option – so you can save time and focus on more important things!
4. Don’t break a sweat part 2 (let the pros clean it!)
Let’s be honest – we know the last thing you want to do after you move into your new home is go back to clean your old home! We have flat rate pricing for all move out cleans – so when it comes to moving into your new home, you’ll be relaxing in no time.
