Declutter Your Move

The beginning of Fall is one of the best times to declutter your home. Not only is the weather perfect for working outside, but Fall has some of the best weather conditions for hosting a garage sale as well. Not to mention, there are probably some seasonal summer items like: clothing, swimwear, beach gear, outdoor furniture, and toys that you are probably looking to get rid of before your big move. 

Ease the School Transition

If you have children, then you know that changing schools can be a difficult transition. Fortunately, if you are moving in the Fall, it is early enough in the school year that they have plenty of time to adjust. Make sure to talk to your children about what they think about changing schools and encourage them to sign up for extracurricular activities like clubs and sports teams so they can start making friends immediately.

Protect Your Floors

When moving in and out of your home during the fall, you can track in wet leaves, dirt and mud that can ruin your hardwood floors and carpets. Avoid excess cleaning by putting down plastic and old sheets to protect your floors from messes and scratches.

Setup Utilities in Advanced

There’s nothing worse than moving into a new home in the chilly, wet fall only to discover that you have no running water, gas, or electricity. Oftentimes, waiting for utility accounts to be set up can take several days to a week – which can feel like an eternity when you have a home to unpack. Make sure to call the local utility company ahead of time to get everything set up so you can relax in comfort once everything is unpacked.
