Making Moving Easier

House moving is definitely one of the most stressful things you will need to deal with. However, it doesn`t need to be something you dread. With a little planning and organization, your move can run smoothly and will help you feel in control at every step of the way.
Before you begin to pack, take the opportunity to de-clutter your belongings. Discard or donate broken electrical goods or old clothes that no longer fit or are out of fashion. By reducing the amount of items you are moving, you save yourself time, effort and even expense.

If you leave organizing your truck rental to the last minute, the truck rental you need may not be availabile on the you need it, or your moving company may not be able to spare the staff on the day you need them. If you book your moving truck well in advance you can make sure that you don`t have any last minute hiccups. Truck rental is one of the biggest expenses in house moving.

Rather than buying boxes to pack, you can ask your local supermarket or retail stores whether they have any spare boxes that they can put aside for you. Most will have plenty of extra boxes that they`ll be happy to see being used for a good purpose. Labeling boxes can save you so much time when you get to your new home because it will be obvious which room each box belongs in and what the contents are. If you are booking a moving company, this will help them to move the boxes to the right room without having to ask you where each box should go.

Try to pack a bag of essentials for the first night. There is nothing worse than being in a new house, exhausted after a long day moving, searching through hundred of boxes for your toothbrush or your child`s pajamas. If you keep your overnight bags in your car, you will be sure to have everything you need, even if the truck is delayed. Similarly, on your first night in your new house, you will probably be too tired to cook and will have several large boxes of kitchen equipment to unpack and clean before you can prepare any meals. Be prepared with the details of a good fast food outlet or late night supermarket near your new home so that you don`t have to rely on cooking at home.

Finally, moving with younger children is easier if you can arrange a sitter to watch them while you load and unload the moving truck. This means you don`t have to worry about where they which can help you load and unload much quicker. They can help too by packing boxes of their toys and clothes. This will help them feel more involved in the move.  So, with a little forethought and planning, moving doesn't have to be a source of stress and worry but a happy and exciting time for you and your family.

What Clients Are Saying

I can’t say enough positive things about Sue Miller and the sale of my house! Sue is a true professional...extremely hard working, punctual and follows through exactly as she says she will. She made the selling of my house pain free and a positive experience. I can’t say enough good things about Sue Miller! Trude Jackson
I was sizing down for retirement and Sue pointed out things I would not have thought of when we were house shopping. She always responded quickly to any questions or issues I had when we were working out loan details. She was always positive with each step we took as buying a condo is a little trickier then a house in Lake Havasu City. She went well and beyond to assist me in this next step of my life. And she is still helping me as I needed a contractor to help me with some changes in my new home and she has referred me to an awesome individual. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home and she is so knowledgeable and knows who to contact should there be issues that need to be addressed when purchasing or selling a home, Michelle Bryan
Dear Sue, This is to "Thank You" for your professional, timely, and energetic help in selling our condo in Sonrisa recently. You were recommended to us by another satisfied client of yours and we are so glad they made that recommendation to us. Everything they said about your service and ability was true. As you know the sale of our condo involved some involved details that needed your experience and guidance. And it had to all be done in record time. You were more than helpful and made sure our sale was completed properly and professionally in record time. I am very pleased to offer you the following testimonials. We couldn't be happier with your guidance, energy, and the outcome. We are very, very happy we selected you as the realtor to sell our condo and would recommend you strongly to anyone wanting a professional real estate experience. Ron and Gloria Hughes
Sue is extremely knowledgeable in the all aspects of real estate transactions. She also knows the Lake Havasu City area thoroughly. She works relentlessly on behalf of her clients! We moved here from out of state, and Sue spent a long 14 hour day researching & viewing homes in our price range with my husband until they found just the right home! When a questionable appraisal nearly caused our contract to fall through, Sue went above & beyond her duties, nearly sacrificing her own position, to assure that the issue was rectified. I firmly believe that any other realtor would have advised us to "move on" to another property. Sue's dedication & high ethical standards guided us through a rather messy short sale process. The bottom line is, Sue got us the home we wanted! Thank you Sue, from the bottom of my heart! You made it happen for us! Mike and Judy McClintock
Thank you so much Sue for both helping us to buy our home in Lake Havasu and selling it at top dollar when the time came for us to leave. I don't think we could have found a more knowledgeable real estate agent. No one fights for their client like you do and if we were to move back to Lake Havasu you would be the first person we would call, and would gladly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. David and Karen Porter
