Your Moving Checklist

There are so many details to handle as you prepare for a move. It can seem like a daunting task. But this checklist will help you manage the process and not forget anything.


Packing and Moving

  • If you’re hiring a moving company, get a firm bid in writing.

  • Try and consume canned food and frozen items before the move.

  • Drain gasoline from your lawnmower. Drain any water from the garden doses.

  • Dispose of any flammable or hazardous items. Do not move these if they can be easily replaced.

  • Moisten plants before moving.

  • Pack a “first night” box with coffee, bedding, household cleaners, toothpaste and toothbrush, pet food, and other essentials that you expect to need upon arrival.


The Important Stuff

  • Call utility companies (electric, water, cable) to cancel your current services and sign up for services in your new home.

  • Collect all of your important documents - birth certificates, passports, and medical. records, and carry these with you instead of packing them.

  • Have any necessary prescriptions filled and carry the medication with you.

  • Precious items such as jewelry on your family photo albums should also be carried with you instead of packed along with other household items.


Before You Leave

  • Conduct a last-minute walk-through. Check drawers, closets, the basement, and the garage.

  • Make sure everything is turned off and locked up.
