“If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” Have you ever heard this little saying? I think it applies perfectly to moving. The good news is that you can have a successful, worry-free move just by doing a little prep work ahead of time.

 I think you’ll find that comprehensive research and a pre-determined moving budget will help you feel much more comfortable about the moving company you hire, and make moving day (and the days leading up to and following it) go much more smoothly. Aside from researching moving companies, it’s also a great idea to research your new community.   Start by requesting a newcomer’s packet from the Chamber of Commerce, visitor’s center, or your realtor. Knowing what to expect before you get there makes a difference!

Finding a good realtor is more important than you think!
As the housing and real estate market continues to get more competitive, one the most important steps you'll need to take when selling or buying a home is finding a good realtor. A 'good' realtor will be able to help guide you through the difficult and sometimes tedious real estate world while keeping your best interest in mind.
Although there are a wide variety of venues for checking out the listings in your area, an experienced realtor can be the most valuable resources at your disposal. Realtors are often the first to know about new listings and may have access to market information that is not available to the public. By finding a good realtor, you'll have an advocate that's willing to listen to your needs and will act according to what will best fit your financial situation.

Making a corporate move

If you're relocating with your company, you probably have a lot of special requirements.  Aside from the typical moving checklist (buy moving boxes, make a reservation, rent your new apartment), here are some extra items that will be involved when making a corporate move.

Corporate move tip #1: do your research
Unless your organization has a contract with a specific moving company, you may have to submit several moving quotes to your employer.  Make sure to do your research while obtaining estimates for a corporate move.  If any of the estimates are from a company you would not feel comfortable using, make a note for later reference to avoid a potential moving scam.
