The Only Relocation Checklist You'll Ever Need

July 30th, 2013 - 1:53 PM

The Ultimate Relocation Checklist

Since you’re here, I’m guessing you’re a checklist person like me. I totally get it. Without checklists, I’m utterly disorganized and overwhelmed. You may laugh, but if you were to look at my iPhone right now, you’d find six apps that are “to-do” list related. (It’s seriously time to narrow it down). 

As you know, there aren’t many things in life more stressful than a long-distance relocation. You’ve got a lot of choices to make and a lot of things to do before packing up your life, putting it on a truck, and moving it across the country. That’s a big deal.

Tips for Moving Appliances

 

Back when I lived in an apartment, I saw a terrible situation unfold as new neighbors moved in. When they began unloading their moving truck everyone noticed an absolutely awful stench. It took a little digging, but they eventually figured out that it was coming from some of their appliances. Unbelievably, they left wet laundry in the washer and dirty dishes in the dishwasher – and apparently it had been there a while. When I say the smell was horrible, that’s no exaggeration. And when I say I was incredibly thankful that I didn’t have to be involved in the clean-up, that’s no exaggeration either.
