Moving Advice

Your satisfaction is our priority each and every day! To help make your move just a little bit easier, here is some great moving advice from our experts: United Van Lines has a great resource – a moving planner that keeps track of everything you will need over an 8-week timeline. Moving is generally not a simple process. There are many aspects involved. At Dearman, we understand how important addressing your needs and concerns are and we strive to listen to you and find solutions to your problems.

Packing

At Dearman, we provide full packing and partial packing services and can assist you If you decide to pack yourself. We are glad to provide you with some tips or answer questions if you need.

We have experience packing every day items such as clothes, pots, pans, dishes, pictures, electronics and all those things you’ve got stored in your basement. We also can handle packing that family heirloom that is priceless to you or your trophy Buck, or a valuable oil painting you treasure. If it needs packed we can do it safely and professionally.

 

Delivery Day

Again, be present to accept the delivery and pay charges. If you cannot be there, authorize another adult to be your representative.
Be available for contact from Personal Moving Coordinator and Van Operators to confirm times and delivery arrangements. When the moving truck arrives, check your items as they are unloaded, direct movers on where to place furniture, and keep all documents pertaining to your move in a safe place.

Finally, you get to settle into your new home! Here are a few more important tips to consider after everything is moved:

  • Check in with your new post office and ask for delivery to start
  • Check new state or local requirements for auto registration and driver’s license
  • Select an attorney to go over new laws that pertain to your new destination – wills, transfer of property, investments, insurance regulations, taxes, etc.
  • The first few weeks in a new place can be difficult! Try to meet new people, have a positive attitude, and find a comfort level at your residence, job, neighborhood, etc.
  • Explore new grocery stores, restaurants, gyms and more in your area with this tool from United Van Lines.

Moving Day

There will be some necessary paperwork on moving day. The High-Value Inventory Form will need to be signed and you can state whether or not items of extraordinary value are included. The Bill of Lading/Freight Bill states terms and conditions and is your receipt for the shipment.
While we take pride in doing most of the moving work for you, it’s important that you’re present on moving day. A final walk-thru is an essential last step to ensure nothing is missed. We encourage you to check every room, closet, cabinet, drawer, crawl space, attic, outdoor deck and shed. We don’t want anyone or anything left behind. Also make sure you’ve turned off all power, gas and water and contacted utilities to be transferred to new owners.

 

Before Your Move

Here are a few reminders of tasks to take care of days, weeks, and months before moving day:

  • Determine what you want to keep, sell, or give away – have a garage sale if necessary.
  • Notify utilities and service providers, the postal service, and any other subscriptions that you will be changing your address.
  • Contact Dearman– get an in-home estimate, ask about our personalized move planner, and communicate your needs to us. Plan your move with us well in advance so we can determine the appropriate budget and strategy.
  • Arrange plans to say farewell to any friends and family. Have a going-away party or visit some places that you will miss when you move.
  • Confirm your travel plans. Plan a smooth transition into your new home.
  • Prepare your household for the big day. Dispose of flammable items, drain fuel from machinery, discard non-allowable, prepare major appliances for shipment and have your utilities disconnected.
