How to find Holiday Trash Schedule in Cape Coral

Holiday Trash Schedule in Cape Coral

There are 6 holidays when trash, recycling, and yard debris are NOT picked up in Cape Coral:

New Year’s Day           January 1

Memorial Day              Last Monday in May

Independence Day       July 4

Labor Day                   First Monday in September

Thanksgiving Day        Fourth Thursday in November

Christmas Day             December 25

If your scheduled pick-up day falls on one of these days, then your pick-up day will move to the next day. All pick-ups will slide by one day for that week following the holiday. Make sure you follow the guidelines for setting out your cans and debris. More information is available at the Waste Pro website and on the video below.

Relocating? Make Your Move to Florida Easy

Relocating? Make Your Move to Florida Easy

Relocating to Florida isn’t easy. The whole process of packing your possessions and hiring movers can take a massive toll on anyone. On top of that, you have other things to worry about, like making sure your bills are paid, your subscriptions are canceled, and your old home is sold to the right people at the right price.

While all these hold true, there are ways to make the process more manageable for you. Make your move to Florida easy with these tips:

Tip 1: Hire Shipping Services

It may be tempting to do all the packing, moving, and storing yourself, but it’s not always the safest or most cost-effective choice. Relocating involves a series of risks that could damage or even destroy your belongings. If you don’t have the right protections in place, you could end up losing valuable items along the way—and that’s not something anyone wants.

Working with cargo and car shipping companies can help you avoid all the unnecessary losses of moving on your own. These companies are trained and equipped to ensure your possessions arrive at your new destination intact. For a reasonable fee, you can enjoy professional shipping services, along with other things like cargo insurance, expert navigation, and punctual deliveries.

 Shop around for potential shippers in your area and ask for estimates from each one. Identify which offer works best for you and which doesn’t. Don’t settle for the first offer you find online.

 Tip 2: Know How Much Your New Home Is Worth

 For first-time homeowners, it’s important to know the true value of your property. Not only does this help you get approved for a mortgage much quicker, but it can also help you accurately assess your liabilities and assets. Knowing your property’s strengths and weaknesses can get you better deals when it comes to homeowner’s insurance and loans. If the list price of your home is significantly higher than its appraisal value, getting approval from either your lenders or insurance company can get tricky.

 You can hire a professional appraiser to look at your new home or use this free home value estimator to determine how much it’s worth.

Tip 3: Declutter

 People tend to own a ton of things that can become obsolete as soon as you move into a different state or country. Florida is known for its sunny beaches and fresh air. It’s why it’s often referred to as the Sunshine State.

 So, if you’re from a state that’s generally chilly all year round – e.g., Alaska, Vermont, or North Dakota—it’s likely you won’t be able to use several of your old home items in Florida.

 The best way you can deal with this situation is to declutter and sell your old items. Not only does this save you from having to lug around more things during your move, but it also makes you a solid amount of money that you may use to support the expenses of your move.

Tip 4: Have Separate Bags for Your Essentials

 Loading and unloading your belongings will take a lot of effort and time. It’s important to have a separate bag for your essential items so that you won’t have to dig around for something that you need urgently. A few pieces of clothing, toiletries, gadgets, chargers, and snacks are just a couple of ideas you may want to consider.

Tip 5: Notify Important People About Your Move

 If you have clients, friends, or family that you want to keep in touch with, you need to inform them about your move. This makes it much easier for them to find you. Additionally, it’ll make them feel like they’re important to you.

You also need to inform some people in your new location about your move. For instance, your utilities provider and internet company will need to know about your arrival. The last thing you want to do after a long and arduous move is to arrange appointments that could take weeks to approve.

Make your move easier for you by setting up meetings ahead.

 Final Thoughts

If moving to a new city is challenging, how much more would moving to an entirely new state be? You need to think a lot of things through, including where to get utility services from, which shipping company to work with, and what home insurance to get—among other things.

 

Above are tips that can help make your move to Florida much easier. Take some time to put these suggestions into practice. It’s guaranteed that you won’t regret it.
