Top Things to Consider When Choosing a Moving Date

Posted by Steinway Moving & Storage on Apr 15, 2016 11:11:22 AM

Moving is such an exciting time in your life that it might be tempting to just start getting the ball rolling without tying up all the loose ends first.

Before you nail down a moving date, make sure that everything else going on in your life is taken into account.

Here are some keys things to think about when you choose your moving date:

ARE YOU CURRENTLY RENTING? IF SO, WHEN IS YOUR LEASE UP?

Having a lease in effect can restrict when you can move out. Check your lease agreement and read the fine print. Wiggling out early might cost you more than your budget allows because of early termination and penalty fees.

ARE YOU SELLING YOUR HOUSE AND BUYING A NEW ONE?

Setting up a move-in date can be tricky if you’ve already purchased your new home before selling your old one. It might be smart to team up with a real estate agent who can help you with your contract start-up dates, close-outs and terms of agreement.

ARE YOU OR YOUR KIDS IN SCHOOL?

School dates can have a big effect on your moving date. Make sure that you consider whether it’s better to finish out the current school year first. If you do decide to change schools, remember that transferring takes extra work and planning.

ARE YOU STARTING A NEW JOB?

Make sure you let your new boss know the details of your move. Typically your new boss will be flexible, but consider your job’s starting date when you’re negotiating your contract for your new place so there are no unpleasant surprises.

MOVING A BUSINESS?

If you’re considering moving your office, try to avoid your company’s busy season. Moving your office will impact your business, so it’s important that you plan your move when your work flow is easier to handle. Check out some tips on keeping your business going during an office move.

Make sure that once you have everything figured out, you give your moving company enough advanced notice for the smoothest transition possible!
