Your First Steps in Planning for the Move

If you just sold your home, congratulations; now comes the hard part. You’ll need to take some immediate steps to start the process of moving out. The more organized you are, the smoother everything will go once moving day arrives.

Typically, the seller of a home will need to have everything moved out by closing. It usually takes about six to eight weeks from the time an offer is accepted to the closing date. But remember, both parties can agree to either extend that time or reduce it. You and the buyer can come to an agreement that will work for everyone. It’s very important, of course, that you comply with the final date that was agreed upon. If not, then the buyer and their attorney may try and hold back money until you are completely moved out.

Steps to take in the days leading up to your move as well as moving day itself:

  • Ask about valuation to protect your possessions if something is broken beyond repair during the move.
  • If you choose to move yourself, make sure you carefully choose the right packing materials.

Unless you have a lot of experience and a lot of friends and family members willing to help, you will be much better off hiring a professional mover. The experts with National Van Lines will make sure that your relocation is planned from beginning to end and that everything goes as smooth as possible.
