Posted: June 23, 2017 by Global Administrator
Do you have a pending move?  Are you considering a move and not sure where to start? You’re not alone, moving can be one of the most intimidating tasks you’ll ever do, but you can simplify the process with some tips and tricks we have listed below.
 
Start by creating a binder at least two months before you move to your new manufactured or modular home in Florida. Organize the binder into easy categories:
  • Checklists
  • Utilities
  • Loan Documents
  • Receipts
  • Movers
  • Builder/Home Purchase
  • Inventory List
  • Schedules
Checklists
An easy way to organize your timeline and ensure you have all your bases covered is to find a printable moving checklists online that you can use as a guide. This can help make you aware and set expectations of what needs to be done before, during and after the move.
 
Utilities
This section of the binder can help keep your utilities organized, keep track of contracts, paperwork etc. Keep record of contact information for both old and new utility companies and ensure you make appointments well in advance.
 
Loan Documents
These important documents should be easy to access and reference when needed. Keep all your documents here until after your move. When the move is complete a great place for loan documents to be stored is in your new home office of your manufactured home.
 
Receipts
Use this section as a folder for any purchases made in reference to the move or your house.
 
Movers
Moving company information, contacts, contracts for truck rental and pricing is not something you want to be looking for on the day of the move. Ensure it is safely placed here so you have less to worry about when moving to your new manufactured home in Florida.
 
Home Manufacturer (Jachomes.com)
When moving to your new manufactured home, ensure you have the dealer’s contact information, warranties, or paperwork during the move.
 
Inventory List
Search online for a “moving inventory list” that best fits your needs. Print it out, fill it out and you’re one step ahead of the moving game from the get-go.
 
Schedules
This section is best used for organizing appointments, moving company schedules and if created in a Word document, you can guarantee the utmost organization. Other items that can be documented are house closing appointments, walk-though appointments, movers, utility, and any other appointments.
