Every year fro the past seven years or so we have moved to a new apartment, townhouse or home. We are renters but we never seem to be completely satisfied with the place we are living in. We move a lot!
If you have moved once or twice you know how much of a pain moving can be! I think the most stressful situations are dealing with the utilities! In our most recent move we had problems with almost every utility we had to transfer! Our dish network service was supposed to be connected on moving day but the technician came about 5 hours earlier than the scheduled time, nobody was home because we hadn’t receive the house keys yet so they didn’t turn on our service. It took them 2 weeks from our move in date to finally get the satellite connected. Our DSL was a similar issue.. We had a phone line problem when we moved in, could not get a dial tone. We contacted the phone company got the run around, when a technician was scheduled and came out they did not fix the problem but they did charge us an $85.00 fee for the visit. A month later we replaced our DSL router, had a new modem replacement sent and were back in business.
Moving is a tricky process that requires much planning, research and time. There are several sites that provide moving checklists and other helpful moving information. One of the sites I found is called movers. You can compare movers prices, services, get quotes and estimates.
If you are going to be moving you should check out their moving tips or the moving checklist where you will find information such as scheduling your utility transfers in advance, researching/ picking a moving company, scheduling a moving truck, clearly and thoroughly labeling your boxes and many more great moving tips and ideas.
