You Listed Your Home on the Market – Now What?

You’re ready to plan your move. No matter how near or far your relocation may take you, and no matter how large or small your current home may be, a successful move largely hinges on how well you have taken care of all the details. If you procrastinate, you will be assured of a chaotic and frustrating experience. National Van Lines would like to offer some suggestions that will help make moving day go as smooth as possible.

Planning the Move

Once your home is on the market, you should immediately start thinking about the move. Some things you need to do to sell your old home will help tremendously. For example, you will have already cleaned out areas like the attic, basement and closets. Just ad an extra step and decide what you want to keep, donate or sell.

Some other important factors to consider when planning your move:

  • The distance of the move – If you’re planning a long distance relocation, you will want to hire an interstate mover. If it’s a local move, you will still need to hire a mover or gather necessities on your own, such as packing boxes, protective blankets, and a van.
  • An international move – It’s extremely important that you research protocols, laws and customs of your new country. Common practices in the U.S. may actually be prohibited in the country where you are moving.
  • Choosing a mover – It’s important that you take several other factors into consideration other than price. Affordability is vital, of course, but you don’t want to sacrifice quality. Make sure the companies you are considering have trained, experienced personnel and the right equipment for the job. It is extremely important that your movers are licensed.

If you have any questions regarding planning for a move once you’ve listed your home, contact National Van Lines online or give us a call at 877-590-2810.
