Growing up, my family went on numerous summer vacations. The five of us all usually traveled in my parent’s midsize sedan. While we enjoyed each other’s company for a while, we soon became irritable. We didn’t have nearly enough room in the car to remain comfortable for longer than an hour or two. If you’re planning an upcoming vacation, consider renting a vehicle to travel in. You can ride in style; and, you will have enough room to stretch. On this blog, you will discover the best types of vehicles to rent for large families. Enjoy your vacation ride this year!
If you are going to be moving at least a few hours away from where you currently reside, then you want to make a to-do list that you follow to make the job ahead of you as easy as you possibly can. Here is a good idea of some of the things you want to include in your list so you are well-prepared ahead of time:
Call now to set up reservations with long-distance movers
You want to reserve your moving date with long distance movers as soon as you have a definite moving date. This way, you will know that your very important dates are locked in and that you can count on having movers there at your doorstep to take care of the physical moving of your belongings for you.
Get copies of all your medical records in your hand
It's a good idea to get your own physical copy of all of your medical records at your last doctor visit before you move. Let the staff know before your appointment that you will be wanting them so they can have them all printed and ready to go for you when you show up for your appointment. Or, if you aren't going to be seeing your doctor again before you move, you can just set up a time to come in and pick them up.
Call for utility and services to be turned on
Make arrangements to have all your utilities and services turned on upon your arrival. Some companies may need advance notice before they get to you. If you wait until you get to the new house to set these things up, then you may find yourself going weeks without certain services.
Get enrollment forms for school ahead of time
If you have children, then you can have their enrollment forms sent to you or you may be able to download them and print them from your computer. You can fill them out, make all the necessary copies you need of things like their shot records, birth certificates, etc.
Gather your special and important items ahead of time and store them where they won't be forgotten
Gather all of your very important things ahead of time so you know that you have everything you want to take with you in the car and have plenty of time to remember anything else you may want to keep on your person.
Set up car service if you are flying in
Find out about car service and make sure you have all the information you need if you are going to be flying to your new place. If you need to have an appointment in place, then you want to make it as soon as you have all of the information regarding your flight.
