You’re moving to a new place in Boston and you’ve realized there are many things standing between you and the big September 1st moving date… and with Isaac’s checklist by your side you should be able to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
We’ve come up with a list of the five things to do at every stage before the big day – from a month away to the actual move day. So, the countdown continues one week before hand…
1 WEEK BEFORE
1) Confirm arrangements with Isaac’s.
Make sure that you know when to expect the movers and when your belongings will be delivered to your new house. Make sure the movers have directions to your old and new residence.
2) Make arrangements for paying your mover
Make sure you know whether you will be paying with cash, money order, or certified check or if your employer is being billed.
3) Plan your meals
Decide what you are going to eat for the next week and buy only essential ingredients, so you do not end up with a cupboard full of food to be moved or thrown away. Try to use up frozen and canned food.
4) Put together a travel suitcase.
Begin to set aside the essentials you will take with you as you travel to your new home: toiletries, a good book, clothes, pajamas, etc.
5) Put together a supply box.
Put together a box of things you will want to have on hand as soon as you arrive – bed linen, towels, coffee machine, some basic flatware and plates and maybe a bedside light. Either carry these things with you or make sure they are clearly labeled and accessible in the movers’ truck.
