A short notice move can happen for many different reasons. When you live in such a booming area like California a job offer might be extended to you before you’ve even had time to properly interview. Or, you may find that your landlord is selling their home is now asking you to find a new place to live. If you have to move in a small time frame it can cause quite a bit of stress. However, there are things that Elite Moving recommends before you start attempting to load your mattress into your too-small sedan. Here are some tips from a moving company in Beverly Hills on how you can have a smooth move on a short notice.
Knowing that you are now working on a tight deadline can only light a fire to get you moving. Don’t wait until the week of the move to start packing. You’re working in a much smaller time frame that some people are granted. One of the best things you can do is start calling around for the best quotes on moving companies. You should also change your address as well as call you utilities providers to set at date for cancellation. Find out the utility providers for your new residence as well and get things set up for your move in date so that you’re moving in the dark.
If you are moving a long distance you’ll want to have your transportation route planned out and have an idea of travel cots on top of your moving company costs. This can help you be prepared for expenses. Another idea that you may want to take into consideration is making a moving list. You should have an idea of the things you are planning to take and those that won’t make the cut. For items of furniture, clothing, kitchenware or electronics you could have a yard sale to quickly dispose of them. You can also list them on marketplaces like Facebook or Apps like LetGo. This can be helpful to rid yourself of unwanted burdens and make a little extra cash ( a win win!). If you don’t want to bother with having to facilitate selling your belongings then they could be donated to a local charity depending on their condition.

Moving on short notice can be a daunting task which means you’ll have to think about the professional help you may need.
