6 Weeks Before You Move

  • Contact the IRS. and/or your accountant for information 
on what moving expenses may be tax-deductible.
  • Begin to inventory and evaluate your possessions. What can 
be sold or donated to a charitable organization? What haven’t you used within the last year?
  • Make a list of everyone you need to notify about your move: friends, professionals, creditors, subscriptions, etc.
  • Obtain a mail subscription to the local paper in your new hometown to familiarize yourself with local government, social news and activities in your new community
  • Locate all motor vehicle registration and licensing documents.
  • If some of your goods are to be stored, make the necessary arrangements now. (Your moving counselor should be able to help.)
  • Contact schools, doctors, dentists, lawyers and accountants and obtain copies of your personal records. Ask for referrals where possible.

4 Weeks Before You Move

begin filling out cards.
  • Arrange special transportation for your pets and plants.
  • Contact utility and related companies (gas, electric, oil, water, telephone, cable TV, and trash collection) for service disconnect/connect at your old and new addresses. However, remember to keep phone and utilities connected at your current home throughout moving day.
  • Contact insurance companies (auto, homeowner’s or renter’s, medical, and life) to arrange for coverage in your new home.
  • If you’re packing yourself, purchase packing boxes from your local mover. Pack items that you won’t be needing in the next month.
  • Plan a garage sale to sell unneeded items or arrange to donate them to charity.

3 Weeks Before You Move

  • Make travel arrangements/reservations for your moving trip. Schedule plane reservations after you’re move-out date. House closings are often delayed, and other unexpected situations can arise.
  • Collect important papers (insurance, will, deeds, stock, etc.).
  • Arrange to close accounts at your local bank and open accounts in your new hometown.

2 Weeks Before You Move

  • Have your car checked and serviced for the trip. Also, make 
sure that your automobile is prepared (filled with the necessary antifreeze/coolant, for example) to meet the weather conditions you’ll be traveling in.
  • If you’re moving out of or into a building with elevators, contact the building management to schedule use of the elevators.
  • Contact your moving counselor to review and confirm all arrangements for your move.

1 Week Before You Move

  • Settle any outstanding bills with local merchants.
  • Don’t forget to withdraw the contents of your safety deposit box, pick up any dry cleaning, return library books and rented videotapes, etc.
  • Take pets to the veterinarian if immunizations are needed. Get copies of pets’ veterinary records.
  • Drain gas and oil from power equipment (lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc.).
  • Give away plants not being moved.
  • Prepare specific directions to your new home for your
moving company. (Include your itinerary, emergency numbers, etc.)

Days Before You Move

  • Defrost your freezer and refrigerator. Block doors open so they can’t accidentally close on pets or children.
  • Have your major appliances disconnected and prepared for the move. ( your moving counselor can help with arrangements for a third party to provide these services.)
  • Pack a box of necessary personal items for immediate use at your new home. Have this box loaded last or carry it with you.
  • Organize and set aside those things that you’re taking with you so they’re not get loaded on the van in error.
  • Contact your moving counselor to confirm arrival time of the moving van, as well as to notify him/her of any last minute details.

Moving Day

  • Make sure that someone is at home to answer the van foreman’s questions.
  • Record all utility meter readings (gas, electric, water).
  • Read your bill of lading and inventory carefully before you sign them. Keep these—and all related papers—in a safe location until all charges have been paid and all claims, if any, have been settled.
