New Web Site Helps Make Moving Easier

Posted March 25, 1998

— Spring is a time when lots of folks move, perhaps selling one home and buying another. Whether your move is across town or across the country, it can be a nightmare of planning and getting things done. As WRAL OnLine reporter Tom Lawrence shows us a new web site can be a big help.

Better Homes and Gardens Onlineis full of great ideas. The newest is "Moving To Your Next Home".

Jason Chapin and his wife plan to move from Cary to Holly Springs this summer. He browsed the site with me.

Listen toauorreal audiofiles."Just getting out of the Marine Corp, I've moved from Cary, North Carolina to Quantico. Quantico to Cary. From Cary to Jacksonville."The site offers tips about moving, planning guides, a custom calendar... even maps of your new neighborhood.

Jason took over and found lots of help.

Listen toauorreal audiofiles."It's basically got everything in order on what you need to do and get done before moving and then once your get there."Need a change of address? You can fill out the form for the Postal Service right here. The whole idea is to help you get organized.

So what part of the site did Jason like best?

Listen toauorreal audiofiles."The moving calendar. Where it tells you what you need to have done by in reference to what day you're actually gonna move in or close on your house. It's got everything listed."So if you're planning a move, check out the internet for the help you'll need.

There are other sites on the Internet that can help with your move. However, Tom says the Better Homes and Gardens Online site is the most complete he has seen.
