Moving Tips

  • Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • Don’t try to get rid of your children’s favorite things before the move – even if it makes it easier. Kids sometimes have a hard time dealing with the change of the move itself.
  • By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.
  • Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.
  • Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it’s time to move.
  • Make a “survival closet” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.
  • Remember to get snacks for move day.
  • Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day — you don’t want to have to pay for cable, phone and utilities when you aren’t even there!
  • Cancel newspapers, cable, pest control, cleaning help, lawn services about a week before the move.
  • Mail in your change of address forms about week before your move date.
  • Clean your stove before you move out.
  • The day before your move, defrost the fridge.
  • Make sure to get enough cash to get you through move day.
  • Take time to say goodbye to friends and neighbors before your busy move day.
  • If you are depending on friends and family to help you move, have a back-up plan if they don’t show.
