- Write a checklist for relocation to help you stay organized and on top of matters
- Schedule a moving date with a mover at least two months ahead of time
- Begin taking care of any medical, job, school or utility transfer a few weeks before the scheduled move
- Find a babysitter for pets and kids on the days scheduled for loading and unloading
- If you didn’t purchase full packing services, begin packing one room at a time at least five weeks prior to relocation and buy or collect all of the proper packaging supplies
- Label all boxes clearly and use the proper packing materials
- Gather information from the moving truck driver, such as a cell phone number and their expected time of arrival
- Always make sure the moving company you hire has a positive reputation which can be assumed through reviews and ratings online
- Make a list of inventory- the moving company usually does this too, but it is always wise to have your own for comparison
