Moving Checklist

We've listed some helpful steps to guide you once your home is listed:

Two Months Before your move

  • Get moving quotes if you are planning on using a professional mover.
  • 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.
  • Finalize your decision on a mover.
  • If time permits, prepare your new home for arrival. (New paint, new locks, etc.)

One Month Before your move

  • Change your address - you can do this online
  • Change you address with the IRS - you can do this online
  • Make any travel arrangements where you will need an airline, train, hotel, bus or car rental.
  • 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.
  • Use up or finish and discard household items so that there is less to pack and move.
