How To Organize Your Pittsburgh Move? Step-by-Step Guide If you are thinking about moving to Pittsburgh, you will soon find out why it is one of the greatest cities in the country. But before you can really enjoy this great city, you first have to move here.  There are a lot of considerations to keep in mind for those who are moving in for the first time, so in this guide, we will try to help you organize moving to Pittsburgh. 1. Pick a neighborhood: Pittsburgh has more than 50 unique neighborhoods, and each one offers many options for those of all backgrounds, interests, and incomes. All of the areas offer plenty of amenities and advantages of living in a big city. On the other hand - it is relatively inexpensive, so moving to Pittsburgh on a budget isn’t just a dream. The city is 10 percent below the national average when it comes to the housing costs. 2. Get a car: Public transportation is the last resort here. We strongly advise you to acquire a car if you plan to get around Pittsburgh without a hustle. o If you don’t already own a car, the state restricts you  from buying one until you obtain a Pennsylvania license. This may take a few weeks – so be prepared to wait. o For those who own a car prior to the move, but don’t have a PA license - you’ll have to title the car in your home state, take it over there for registration, come back, and transfer the title. This part right here might be the only negative side of moving to Pittsburgh – but it can be done! 3. Decide if you are hiring a mover or moving to Pittsburgh by yourself: The answer to this question is different for everyone, and it depends on numerous factors such as time, money, and complexity of the move. But, when you are moving across the country, a self- move may not make sense. Still, it’s a good idea to weigh all the options. If you are looking to save some extra money, we strongly advise you to hire a professional moving company, and save money by packing your belongings by yourself. An experienced moving company will make sure to take care of your belongings when transferring to Pittsburgh, so that no harm is done. Do your research, look for moving quotes Pittsburgh, ask about additional costs, insurance possibilities, and extra offers. 4. Start packing up your home: Give yourself plenty of time and plan carefully. Cautious packing will save you a lot of time and money when moving to Pittsburgh. 5. Create a moving planner: Keep track of your estimates, receipts, and an inventory of all the items you’re moving. Don’t rely on your memory and write everything down. 6. Organize records: Arrange for medical and school records (if you have kids) to be sent to your new health-care and school district prior to your move to Pittsburgh. 7. Cancel services and memberships: Some places auto-renew memberships, so it’s always best to cancel them more than a month before the end date. Change your billing address and contact information. Cancel your Internet and telephone provider’s services. Make sure to do all of this before moving to Pittsburgh. 8. Use it or lose it: Make a list of all the items that you plan on transferring to Pittsburgh, and then think about it. Do you really need all of that stuff? Declutter your house and refrigerator. You can do this by recycling, selling or donating your belongings. 9. Obtain packing supplies: o Boxes – get them in all the different sizes and shapes. o Dye-free packing paper will allow you to securely wrap your possessions without any damage, and it can be used to fill open spaces in boxes to prevent items from shifting when relocating to Pittsburgh. o Bubble wrap is used to protect fragile items such as glass, collectibles, art pieces and similar items. Use it combined with some buffer in the form of packing foam. o Packing peanuts serve as a barrier inside your boxes, keeping your stuff from damaging. 10. Begin the packing process: This part takes long to do well, and there will be many things to take into a consideration. It is not too late to look for movers in Pittsburgh PA at this point yet! If you still want to do this by yourself - start packing with the things that you don’t use as much and finish with ones that you use on a day-to-day basis. Packing by room is not necessarily realistic, but you'll want to keep boxes as room- specific as possible. Try to sort a lot. The main goal here is not to pack air. Label everything, and I mean everything. Knowing where everything is after moving to Pittsburgh will prevent the unbelievable amount of stress. This might take a lot of your time, but staying organized while packing will save you a lot more time and effort in the long run. Find your system and stick to it. Plates are stackable, which makes them easy to pack when transferring your belongings. Also, don’t forget to set aside the essentials. Put everything you may need in one suitcase and live out of it. This way, you'll know where your necessities are and when all your other packing is complete, you can just zip it up and drive it over to Pittsburgh. 11. Prepare your house for the moving day: Measure the doors, corridors, sharp turns, and staircases. Make sure that the larger items will fit through them. Disassemble bulky pieces that may cause a problem when transferring to Pittsburgh. Protect floors and doorknobs with efficient coverings. Make the path as safe as possible and clear out any obstacles. Pack a bag with the essentials prior to the moving to Pittsburgh. 12. One last look: Go through the entire house one final time before you say goodbye. Inspect every corner of your old home. Check the roof space, the cellar, the garage, the restroom or under the kitchen countertops –  make sure nothing is left behind before moving to Pittsburgh.
