You've finally made the decision to move across the country and you couldn't be happier. The hardest part is over and now you've got to prepare. Whether you're renting, or have a home to sell, you've got your work cut out for you. Here are four things you need to accomplish before making that big move.

Get Organized

Before doing anything, sit down and make a large master list. Arranging your tasks by weeks or months can help you get organized. Include fix-it projects at home before you sell, a date to list your home, when to have a yard sale and decisions regarding your job.

Secure a Moving Company

Another item you'll need on your list is when to secure a local moving company Aurora CO. Moving companies are the best way to move your furniture and important effects, because they know exactly how to maneuver heavy and fragile items. A moving company takes a lot of worry off your shoulders, so all you have to do is drive to your destination.

Get Your Bills Online

Even though you'll no longer live locally, you'll still have bills that follow you such as credit cards and student loans. Remember to submit a change of address form to the post office and then sign-up for online payments. You'll be able to access them from anywhere and they won't end up in someone else's mailbox.

Sell and Donate

Cleaning out and getting rid of old things always feels so good and now's the time to go full speed ahead. Donate items you no longer use and decide what you can sell. Make some extra moving money by having a yard sale, or an estate sale if you have major baggage.

Congratulate Yourself

Fresh starts are the best, so congratulate yourself on finally making the big decision to move. With a little hard work and organization, you'll be well on your way to starting a new life.
