As many of you who read my blogs regularly knows that we just recently moved to a new house few months ago. It's been a really busy time for us because we did some home improvements to this house before we moved in. We had all the flooring done, applied a fresh coat of pain on all the walls, and now we are having new windows put in. We did most of the works ourselves except the the tiles in the kitchen, and family room. If we would have enough time, we would have done the tiles too in order to save money but the former owner occupied the house for another 30 days after we closed the sale.
We got the Ultimate Moving Checklist From Home Depot and also rented all the equipment and tools we used there since we did not have those specific cools that we need . Moving is stressful not only physically but also emotionally. It can be emotionally draining and not to mention the financial expenses that comes with it. We did not hire a professional movers but we got some help from some my husband's co workers and our neighbors. We rented a truck and with other people's help, we moved most of our stuff. We had to do two separate move because we didn't get to finish hauling everything out in one day. One of the other things that we didn't attempt to move is the piano and refrigerator. We hired a professional piano mover to do it. My husband asked a relative to help him move the refrigerator as I couldn't help him with it.
This is how our new home looks like, chaos .. We still have things at the other house but glad that some of the heavy furniture are in. Thanks to the Bates twin, Megan, and Don for the help.A photo posted by Chubskulit Rose (@chubskulitrose) on
It is really nice though that you can obtain a Moving Company License Checker online and see your options. It will give you an idea or a guide on how to choose a moving company. When my husband was still in the military, we didn't have to worry about the expenses of moving because they took care of everything for us, that's one thing I missed about the military but I am glad he is now retired. We don't have to worry about him being sent overseas.
I felt so relieved this month because we finally sold our old home. I mean we received the offer back in July but we didn't get to close till this month. The buyer have requested us to do some stuff, we agreed to some of it but the other stuff, we declined. I am just glad, we don't have to pay two mortgages anymore, it's been stiff paying for two every month! I feel like a strong weight has been lifted off my shoulder. This has been quite a wild ride and journey for us.
