If you just cringed, you're not alone. Whether it's your first move or tenth, moving can be daunting and stressful!Organizing, packing, changing your address, cleaning your old's not fun.

Three Months

  • Separate valuable items to transport yourself - label as DO NOT MOVE

Two Months

  • Schedule disconnection/connection of utilities at old and new place
  • Plan your moving method (truck rental, hiring movers, etc.) and get cost estimates
  • Notify your insurance and credit card companies about change of address
  • Plan how you will move vehicles, plants, pets and valuables

One Month

  • Try and use up perishable food
  • Schedule cancellation of services for your old place such as newspaper, housecleaning, lawn, pool, or water delivery services
  • Continue cleaning the house as you are packing

2-4 Days Before Move In

  • Confirm all moving details and that you have necessary paperwork
  • Find useful things for your children to do - involve them as much as possible
  • Make a schedule or action plan for the day of the move
  • Pack a bag for water bottles, pen/paper, snacks, documents, and essentials
  • Make sure essential tools are handy (screwdrivers, wrench, pliers, tape, etc.)
