Relocating to Another Place Locally
It is not very easy to contemplate leaving a certain place where you have lived for so many years. You would have established your identity amongst your neighbors and your children might have made many friends and may not be too keen on going to another place. But then, your landlord has already given you
one month's notice, and you have no alternative other than to think of alternate accommodation. First and foremost, prepare all your family members for the move and ensure that they all are agreeable to go to another area within the city.
Contact the local broker and ask him to arrange for a rented accommodation suiting your needs and budget. Look for a house in such an area which is not too far from your children's school and your office. Also the area should be safe from thefts and vandalism. Short list the houses shown by your broker and select the one which impresses and your family members from all aspects. Once the house is finalized, it is time to think of other important issues. Spare some time from your busy schedule and make a list of all the acquisitions in the house. You will notice that you have collected a number of superfluous items over the years which you may not need but happen to be in good condition. Sell them to those who will need them and earmark the money thus earned for other expenses.
Next, visit some your friends in the neighborhood and collect enough data about various
Local Movers who will undertake the task of shifting your personal effects without damage to any of them. If you are internet-savvy, you may go online too and collect details of
Movers and also their quotes. Once you have made a list of those whom you have liked, collect some details about their performance history from the Better Business Bureau in the locality. You may handover the task of packing, loading and unloading to the moving company, so that you are not burdened at the nth hour.
Now, it is time to concentrate on other important tasks on hand. Inform your landlord about the precise date of moving so that you may hand over the keys to him. Settle all the pending bills in advance to avoid confusion at the last moment. Bid goodbye to all your neighbors and take your family members by car to the new house, after all your belongings have been shifted without any hassle.
