If you know you’re going to be moving to San Antonio in the near future, or even if you’re just in the first planning stages, having a clear plan of how to organize your move is key to make the process as low stress as possible. As soon as you know you’re moving, start planning. If you have a month or more before your move, start packing up rarely used items, including seasonal clothing or decor. Start to pare down what you have in your regular rotation of clothing, linens, and dishes. You also have time to sort through your stuff and get rid of what you don’t use often enough to justify taking it with you. Clothes that don’t fit, books or movies you’re not excited about anymore, extra dishes, or furniture that’s rickety are all candidates for the thrift store.
Whether You’re Doing a San Antonio Military Move or Are a Civilian, a Moving Company Is a Must
For a San Antonio military move, you’ll have a company come to help you pack. For everyone else, decide whether to hire a moving company. For long distance moves, it’s a good idea. Book the company as soon as you can, as they tend to be scheduled pretty far in advance. Check with the company about what kind of insurance they offer if something gets damaged. Call your insurance company and find out what they offer for moving insurance. Be sure that you have utilities scheduled to be on for when you arrive at your new home.
As you pack in preparation for moving to San Antonio, think about how you want to unpack once you arrive. You’ll want to be able to fall into bed after a long day of unpacking boxes and getting things organized, so label for each box, detailing what’s inside and which room it should go in. You’ll also want to have weather-appropriate clothing. Label those boxes carefully as well, or just pack a suitcase for each person that will go with you in the car or on the plane. You’ll definitely want to order take-out for a few days, and it will be fun to discover great eateries close to home. However, you also want to have your kitchen unpacked quickly so you can cook and eat at home. Have your everyday dishes, utensils, most-used pots and pans, as well as small appliances labeled clearly as well.
