  • Visually prepare or design a floor plan for your furniture in your new home.

  • 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. (New paint, new locks, etc.)
  • Consider your children in the move. Plan ahead and visit our Moving with Children Guide

  • Make any travel arrangements where you will need an airline, train, hotel, bus or car rental.

  • Contact medical and dental offices to receive records, asking these professionals for referrals and continuing prescriptions.

  • Research local laws about home-based businesses and business licenses if you own or operate your own business.
  • Make an inventory list of all of your belongings.
