3 Hassles to Avoid When Moving to a New Lexington MA Home

Moving to a new home in Lexington MA can be a stressful process, no matter what time of year it is. In fact, failing to do enough research before your move can cause even more problems that will dampen your excitement about your fresh, new start. 

As your local Lexington MA real estate expert, I am sharing three common moving hassles that can throw a wrench into new homeowner plans for an easy transition.

1. Not Researching the Moving Company

When you're choosing a moving company to help shuffle your belongings from home to home, it is important to do the background work. Gather recommendations from family and friends, or even your real estate agent, on the best team for the job. Checking references and reading all customer reviews can also offer insight into the abilities of the moving team.

2. Not Reading the Moving Contract

Go over every line of the moving contract prior to signing on the dotted line. Oftentimes, these contracts come with fine print and disclaimers and you do not want any surprises on Moving Day! 

3. Not Allowing Enough Time

This is perhaps one of the biggest (and most common!) moving hassles— and one that could be easily avoided! Start as early as possible with your moving preparations. Begin clearing out all clothing and items that have gone unused and take a trip to donate them. Organize everything into labeled boxes and take care to only place items that belong in that respective room or area in the box. The last thing you want is a lost toothbrush on your first night in your new Lexington MA home!
