    Moving Checklist

    Two Months Before Move

    • Get moving quotes if you are planning on using a professional mover.
    • If you need a rental truck for a “do-it-yourself-move,” contact a rental company.
    • Visually prepare or design a floor plan for your furniture in your new home.
    • Create a list for inventory of your belongings. This is helpful in preparing a garage or moving sale.
    • Keep all of your paperwork concerning the move in one file, so nothing is lost or misplaced.
    • Transfer all school records for your children.
    • Finalize your decision on a mover.
    • If time permits, prepare your new home for arrival.
    • Consider your children in the move. Plan ahead, and check out our Moving with Children Guide.
