The move that you won’t forget is the move that ends up being. While making the move is a hassle, it can become doubly inconvenient if you don’t know who you are moving to.

The incomprehension that I face comes from the fact that while I am being paid to make the move, I have no idea what location I am actually moving to. There has been a shared understanding in the industry that there is actually no standard for moving companies other than the location that the clients themselves chose. Therefore, anyone who walks into a moving office claiming that they are moving to New York City but really live in Florida gets looked on pretty funny.

listed below are several questions that you should ask moving company before you make a decision:

1. What year should I expect to be living in the new location?

2. What homeowner permitting process does the company employ?

3. What zippers and locks are they using?

4. What closing process does the company have?

5. Once the location is chosen, what floor are you moving from?

6. What are the available options for relocating or replacement of existing flooring?

7. What about overhead? What are the company’s financial resources and number of employees?

8. What paperwork is required of me if I make a move from one state, possessions included?

9. How do you choose the moving day(s) you need to arrive at the new location on an exact date?

10. Never move without reading the company’s moving information and guidelines.

11. Have an inspection of the moving truck and see for yourself what is being offered. What are the included items?

12. Before you take any additional steps, always call to confirm the day you need to move and receive a quote.

13. Save your packing space! Only bring what you need. Most moving companies charge for extra stuff.

14. Some companies are more than willing to negotiate a lesser price for a move to make things happen, not just an overall cost savings.

15. Have a moving agency do the moving; many buyers forget moving is an art. The moving truck, truck of accessories, and the relocation kits are often far from what you need.

16. Check what your moving day will entail. You don’t want to have to pull into a new house and drive away from your old one without knowing what you are relocating.

17. Get a Certificate of Tags or Certificate of Wraparound from the deeded owner of the property you are buying to help you prove title and prove that all is actuallyFinal! Once this is done, contact the developer to notify him/her of the sale.

18. Once you have that glorious title, contact the County of Clarkstown, and let them know your new address. They will suspend the building permit and if you move in soon, you can get a building permit hopefully even before construction has started.

19. Continue to get the necessary paperwork, inspections and documentation to the developer/mite to allow building

20. Wait, construction will not necessarily stop on its own accord, although it will surely be slower, stay active and watch out for any changes in the landscape.

21. When building, always think putting in a few more days than you will need to make the build profitable, you can still save money!

22. Never block a building entrance, because you may find yourself facing a move off charge and aoi hearing.

23. Always work with a developer, always work with as many as possible to get the best deal, you will get a better deal usually because you must match the other party’s budget. Always visit their offices including the office of the Township if you are moving in to in the development to meet them and see what they are doing.

24. Check what kind of permits are needed before you move in to any lot or house. Some lots will need water right through the ground, others you could roll down sidewalks and street a few feet first then excavation work would have to be done.
