Three Weeks Before Moving
Dispose of toxic or flammable items from your old home. Hold a moving sale for items that have value but will not be making the trip. If moving out of state, arrange for registration of your vehicles.
Two Weeks Before Moving
Return any borrowed items, cancel newspaper delivery, and process change of address forms. Transfer all your prescriptions to a pharmacy near your new home. Assemble a folder of information for the new homeowner that includes warranty information and appliance manuals.
One Week Before Moving
Transfer your bank accounts and confirm all travel reservations. Pack everything except the essentials to get through the final days at your residence. Gather all vital information for the move into one spot.
Notate all utility meter readings and have someone on hand to answer any questions from the movers. Supervise the loading, unloading, and unpacking stages.
