After we get through the inspection negotiation it’s fairly safe to hire movers and start packing! Call now to get moving estimates and secure a mover as they often get booked up weeks in advance. Also, if you’re moving into a condo building check with the Property Management Company to see if you need to pay any move-in fees.
Remember that you are Buying, you can’t move into your new place until the day of closing at 9 PM unless special arrangements have already been made in regard to the possession date.
Typically, hire movers for the day after closing.
It is important to verify they are licensed (check with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission) and properly insured.
Ask us for an updated list of recommended Movers.
Whichever mover you end up using, we highly recommend asking them to bring wardrobe boxes with them for all of your hanging clothes. That way you don’t have to take everything off the hangers and pack the items up. Instead, the movers will simply grab everything in your closets that is hanging, put them on the rods in the boxes and then when you get to your new home you can just grab the hangers and hang the items back up. Saves a ton of time.
Moving can be incredibly stressful on pets so consider having them stay with a friend or in daycare for a few days while you move and get settled into your new place.
