Planning a move to Burlingame? With so many things to take care of during a move, changing your address may be the last thing on your mind. Having this checklist will help you prioritize which companies to notify prior to your move and which ones can wait until you’re situated at your new residence in Burlingame.
Prior to the Move to Burlingame
Set yourself up with a “moving binder” – that ONE place where you know ALL the info you need is at your fingertips. Outfit a 3-ring binder with folders, binder organizers to hold business cards and post it notes to mark the important things. Combine that old-school notebook with a moving app and you will have the best of BOTH worlds! Just remember, if the battery on your phone dies and the charger is packed… having this notebook could be a Life Saver!
