Call now to get moving estimates and secure a mover as they often get booked up weeks in advance. Also, if you’re moving into a condo building check with the HOA President or Property Management Company to see if you need to pay any move in fees, reserve an elevator, or if there are move in restrictions, etc.
Remember that you can’t move into your new place until closing is finished as that is when you’re given the keys. Unfortunately, we can’t reserve a specific time for closing until we get the clear to close. Allow 3 hours for closing, although we’ll hope to be done sooner than that. For instance, if your closing starts at 9am expect you might not be done until noon then allow time to get to your new place before the movers arrive. Usually we don’t know the exact time/location of closing until a few days before closing.

Whichever mover you end up using, we highly recommend asking them to bring wardrobe boxes with them for all of your hanging clothes. That way you don’t have to take everything off the hangers and pack the items up. Instead, the movers will simply grab everything in your closets that is hanging, put them on the rods in the boxes and then when you get to your new home you can just grab the hangers and hang the items back up. Saves a ton of time.
Start gathering boxes and packing supplies. Often you can find free boxes on Craigs List. Otherwise, Uhaul, Uline, and Usedcardboardboxes are all great places to get moving supplies.
Moving can be incredibly stressful on pets so consider having them stay with a friend or in daycare for a few days while you move and get settled into your new place.
Does Your New Street Require Permit Only Parking?
A lot of areas in the City of Harrisburg require you to purchase a permit to park. Typically these permits can be purchased for $30/year. Make sure to order your parking permit BEFORE you move so that you don’t have unexpected last minute hiccups.
