Your Guide to Preparing for a Move

Spradlin Relocation can assist you with your upcoming move by taking care of all the details. Because there is so much to plan and organize, you can rely on Spradlin Relocation to help you every step of the way.

The key to preparing for a move is planning. Planning and organizing your move will help you alleviate the stress of moving, and avoid any surprises. Our guide to moving can help you do just that.

What to Know Before Moving

The relocation process takes anywhere from 90-120 days. During this time, you will need to plan and organize your move. The more organized you are, the less stressed you will be. When using a professional mover, be aware that the summer months are the busiest, so be sure to contact your Bekins agent 30 to 45 days before your preferred move dates so that you are not disappointed.

Moving with Children

A move can be especially taxing for children. Here are some helpful tips to ease their concerns and make your move easier:

  • Let them pack their own special box of belongings.
  • Discuss their fears and worries about the move.
  • Get them involved - this will help alleviate some of your child's stress about moving to a new place.

Be sure they are not there on moving day, as they may become upset that their things being loaded on the truck. We suggest that they spend the day with family or friends to minimize their anxiety about the move. Proper planning will help your children in the transition to your new home and community.

Moving Your Pets

Pets cannot be moved on the moving truck. Be sure that they are not present on moving day as they might get in the way. Also, arrange for your pet's transportation in advance. You might want to visit your veterinarian to obtain your pet's health records, to update their tags, and to obtain tranquilizers to calm your pet during transport.

Moving Plants

Plants should not be moved. We cannot be responsible for the care of plants, and many states have enacted quarantines on moved plants. We recommend that they move with you in your vehicle and not on the Bekins truck.
