December is now here, and that means that 2018 isn’t too far away. If your New Year involves moving to a new house, it’s important to have a plan in place for your relocation. You’ll want to create a moving checklist, find a reputable moving company, and pick a date that works with your busy holiday and work schedule. At Billy Goat in Fort Collins, we can make sure that your belongings arrive safely at your new house, and that you have an enjoyable and stress-free moving experience!

Making a List and Checking It Twice

There are a lot of lists this time of year, including the one you make for others so that you get the gifts you want, as well as the ones you get so that you know what to buy your friends and relatives. You also have grocery lists for those trips to the store to get everything for your holiday feast, but if you’re moving this December or January, the most important list is your moving checklist.

A proper moving checklist consists of things such as finding a moving company, updating your address, and making sure your utility accounts are switched to your new residence. You’ll also want to make sure that your family is ready for the move, so it’s important to add things such as “talk with the kids about moving,” and “take the dog to the vet.”

You’ll also want to make a budget list so that you know what your moving expenses will be. You may need to buy boxes, tape, and packing materials, and if you’re using a moving company, be sure to get a quote before you settle on a moving date. At Billy Goat, we can provide you with a fair and honest quote so that you know how best to budget for your move. If you’re relocating to another city, you’ll need to add in the costs of gas, dining out, and perhaps even a hotel room or two.

A New Year can bring all sorts of new and exciting things into your life, and if you’re planning to move in 2018, let us help you get to your new house. We can assist with packing and moving, and if you have things you need to store, we can help you find the best solution.
