Let’s get moving
Moving is all about planning – and the sooner you start, the better!
Follow these helpful tips to make your moving experience a breeze.
8 weeks before your move
Moving is all about planning! Start a checklist with all your “to-dos” and place important documents like birth certificates, passports, and contracts into a folder.
If you haven’t already done so, contact moving companies and cleaners.
7 weeks before your move
Boxes, boxes, boxes! Start gathering them up. And remember, you can never have enough!
6 weeks before your move
Schedule utility service disconnections at your current residence and connections at your new address. Make sure to overlap them by a few days just to be safe!
Start packing up items you won’t need right away (like winter sweaters in July).
5 weeks before your move
Request time off from work or school for your moving day.
4 weeks before your move
Don’t forget to file a change-of-address form with the Post Office!
Continue to pack and label your boxes.
3 weeks before your move
Does your car need an oil change? Tire rotation? Schedule those services now—especially if you’re making a long-distance move.
Munch on food from your pantry, fridge, and freezer so you’ll have less to move. Don’t throw out non-perishable items! Support your local food bank.
2 weeks before your move
Notify your bank, insurance company, and other important contacts about your move. Share your new address with family and friends.

Fill a backpack with moving day essentials including credit cards, mobile phones, reservation documents, toiletries, snacks, and water.
1 day before your move
Unplug and prepare major appliances (don’t forget to empty and defrost the refrigerator!).
Get plenty of sleep for the big day ahead!
Do a final walkthrough to make sure nothing has been left behind.
Turn off all lights and lock up.
If you’re using movers, double-check the paperwork and make sure they have the correct address.
Arrive at your new residence and start unpacking (or maybe just wait a day—you’ve earned it!).
