Harford County, & Baltimore County Helpful Relocation Tips

Let's face it; moving day is no picnic! Packing and moving is never easy, whether you're moving to the other side of town or across the country. Use this essential checklist to help make your move to Harford County, & Baltimore County as seamless and stress-free as possible!

Before You Move

Don't wait until the last minute! Start packing and planning as soon as possible to alleviate some of the stress.

  • Start one room at a time and begin to organize and declutter. Set aside anything that can be donated, sold, or thrown away. The less stuff you have, the less you'll have to pack!
  • Host a yard sale to get rid of any unwanted clothing, furniture, or decor. You can also consider donating any shoes or clothing that are in good condition.
  • It usually takes a few weeks for the post office to process your change of address and start forwarding your mail, so request it at least two weeks before the move.

On Moving Day

It's not just the packing that's overwhelming - moving day itself can be very stressful if you're not prepared. Here are some tips for a low-stress moving day.

  • Don't pack your most important essentials and emergency prep items - like first aid supplies, medication, financial records, medical records, IDs, and other important documentation or high-value items. Always keep them with you.
  • If you make it home before the moving truck, make sure you're prepared with things like a change of clothes, your toiletries, and a phone charger.
  • Keep your moving foreman's content information with you in case you need to contact your movers for any reason. It's also handy to have your Bill of Loading and shipment registration number with you.

After You Move

  • It's much easier to deep-clean your bathrooms and kitchen before they're loaded down with all your stuff (or before you're too tired to clean!). Clean first, unpack second.
  • Make the seemingly endless process smaller by breaking it down into several smaller projects, and do them in order of importance.
  • Don't forget to smile... Your new life in your new place just began. Welcome home.
