3 Important Tasks Before The Big Day

Moving out of state is a wonderful adventure, but it carries some challenges that in-state and in-town moves don’t have. You’re responsible for packing up your life, settling into an unknown and unfamiliar city, and establishing yourself as part of the community once you arrive. While coming up with a plan of action to prepare for any move is an absolute must, long-distance moving is even more important. Before you schedule a pickup date with your moving company, make sure you take care of these three important things.

Get Your Medical Records In Order

When you move out of state, you’ll need to switch doctors. This means you’ll want to have your medical records on hand to help them better understand your treatment history, any underlying health conditions, and current medications. The more information you have with you the better prepared your new doctor will be. As soon as you decide to move out of state, speak with your current doctor, dentist, orthodontist, and any other medical practitioner you work with about getting copies of your medical records. While they may mail your records to the new physician, it’s best to have physical copies on hand. It can take several weeks for records to be pulled and sent to you, so the sooner you request them, the better.

Purge Unwanted Items

Moving out of state is the perfect time to eliminate all that furniture, excess clothing, and clutter you no longer want. Before you start packing up, take an inventory of the items you want to keep. Remember, the more you pack and move, the more expensive the moving cost will be. If there are any items you haven’t used in years or simply no longer want, you’ll save money by selling or donating them before the move. Host a garage sale or look for local charities that accept the types of items you want to part with. Need to get rid of furniture? Check out the Furniture Bank Association of North America. They’ll help you find a local charity that can take your unwanted furniture and give it to a deserving family.

Don’t Forget About The Utilities.

You’ve had the utilities set up at your old house for years, and it’s easy to forget about them when you move. Before you move to your new home, take the time to cancel the utilities at your old property and set them up at your new home. This way, you’ll avoid any lapse in utility coverage at your new home and reduce the risk of paying for utilities for the new tenants at your old property. All it takes is a quick phone call to your utility provider.

Planning for a long-distance move can feel like a huge challenge, but with help from the team at Eden’s Moving Services, your move will go as smoothly as possible.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
