Planning to move to Fort Collins, Colorado? You’re in the right place because today, we’re a few of the the top secrets you should know before your big move. Let’s dive in.
#1 Consider getting groceries delivered to you when you first arrive in Fort Collins
Let’s face it, the last thing you want to do when you move to a new place is grocery shopping. You’re probably already stressed out as is. You drove for hours, and you can’t wait to sit down and relax in your lovely new home.
That’s why we suggest ordering groceries beforehand and having them delivered to you when you first arrive in Fort Collins. You can even pick a specific time frame for your order. It’s a win-win!
#2 Give yourself a few extra days before AND after you move for some downtime
Give yourself a few extra days. Whether you’re a business owner and need to get some work done prior to your move or just need to decompress, you will probably need more time than you think.
Moving across the country can take more out of you than you might think. Make sure you have some extra hours in case you need to catch up on your work or just do absolutely nothing and relax in your new house.
The majority people we talk to after they move suggest they didn’t give themselves enough time before or after the move for work or self.
#3 Consider using a one-way moving service and hire movers in both locations to load/unload
One of the biggest secrets when moving across the country is to use a one-way moving van and hire movers in both locations to load and unload your stuff. This is the most economical way of moving across the country, which could save you a lot of money and energy.
Here are some tips to get the most out of your move:
- If you going with an all-in-one moving company, get at least three quotes to make sure you’re getting a good deal
- Avoid using a middleman moving service (Thumbtack and others)
- Make sure you take pictures of the stuff you’re loading and unloading because the biggest risk when moving across the country is liability
- Potentially sell some of your less valuable items to save money on the moving cost
