Moving can be stressful, physically demanding, mentally exhausting and full of unpredictable challenges. How do you best mitigate this uncomfortable reality? At Armstrong Relocation Jack Treier Moving, we like to call it the M-O-V-E plan.M is for Manager. Nothing is more important for a successful move than selecting the service providers, setting the service expectations, supervising the service delivery and assuring that service is completed as expected. Someone must Manage the process.This can be you, the person that is moving, or it could be a family member or friend. You also may choose a 3rd party service such as a Senior Move Manager or Senior Transitions Specialist. Perhaps your most important decision in the move process is who is in charge? Its a big job, so be thoughtful in your choice.O is for organized. There are two parts to being organized. The first, the intangibles, is the hardest. You must be clear on your expectations, budget, timelines and preferences. If you are serving as the move manager, get a notepad and a calendar and write it down. Struggling with this part might just lead you to hire a professional move manager who will help you cover all the bases. The second part is being physically organized. First and foremost, know what you plan to keep and where it is going. Then theres the Three Ds: Distribute, Donate & Discard. Distribute whats going to family and friends. Donate whats usable & needed. Discard whats not usable & needed. And finally, you may wish to sell some items. Your professional move manager can assist in evaluating your options or you can web browse for estate sales or auctioneers. Just remember, items are only worth what someone is willing to pay. Dont overprice and have surplus items at the end.V is for Verify and Vocalize. All your service providers should provide you with Licenses, Training Certifications and Certificates of Insurance. Do they background check and drug test their employees? Get service commitments in writing and read the agreements and disclosures. Are they accountable if something goes wrong? Check out their on-line reviews and the Better Business Bureau. Vocalize your expectations and concerns. E is for Engaged. Whether you hire a move manager, get help from a friend or family, or go at it alone; stay engaged in the process. You are the most important aspect of a successful move. Your being satisfied with the results is the priority. Make sure success does not slip through your fingers.
