Moving Tip Monday: Donate Used Home Goods

When you are you starting your move, you may find that some of your home goods will need to be moved on.  Perhaps they are only gently used and still work.  If so, consider donating furniture, appliances, extra construction supplies (such as tiles, shingles, windows, etc) and home goods like decor to Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.  We recommend our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore for North Central MA.  If your items can’t fit into your car, give them a call, they can usually arrange to pick up the items.  Even better, pick up a receipt from them so you can write off your donations on your taxes.

Moving Tip Monday: Valuables and Jewelry

Moving Tip Monday: Appliances

When you move, you’re likely going to leave behind some appliances.  Maybe a stove, washer and dryer or other smaller appliances.  Leave behind any system warranties and manuals.  Also, if you’ve had these appliances serviced, leave behind who the service provider was and any information on service provided.

Moving Tip Monday: When to Contact Utilities

Contact your utility companies one month prior.  Find out what you need to do to close out your old utilities and open up accounts for your new ones.  Provide a move in and move out date so that you don’t get additional charges or get your utilities shut off unexpectedly.

Moving Tip Monday: Keep Basic Tools Available

Moving Tip Monday: Keep Basic Tools Available Keep some basic tools available while you move from your former home to your new home.  During your move, you may need to disassemble and reassemble furniture, remove wall hangings or make some repairs. In your toolbox have a hammer, razor blade, and screwdriver.  Have a few plastic baggies in your toolbox as well to gather any small items like nails, bolts and screws.

Moving Tip Monday: Refrigerator Moving

Moving Tip Monday: Refrigerator Moving If you’re planning to move your refrigerator, try to use up what you have for food in the weeks leading up to your move.  That way, you have less to pack.  One day prior to your move, clean out your refrigerator, place food you want to save into a friend or neighbor’s refrigerator or a heavily iced cooler.  Then defrost your refrigerator and dry it out so it’s ready for the move.
