Moving Checklist


Moving Checklist:



  • Prepare to complete a Change of Address with USPS and notify your stakeholders about your move.
  • Schedule disconnects for utilities such as gas, electric, water, internet, cable TV, newspapers, and any other services you receive.
  • Leave some clothes for you to wear in the next week or so.
  • Label all the moving boxes as you pack. 
  • Schedule disconnects for utilities such as gas, electric, water and the telephone. If you have a landline, do not disconnect it until after your move. Arrange for refunds that are due, and schedule connections for your new residence.
  • Cancel newspapers, Internet, cable TV, security, pest control, cleaning help, lawn maintenance, and any other services you receive.


  • Clean the stove, refrigerator, and finish up any last-minute cleaning before move day.
  • Finish up packing and be sure all items are boxed and ready to go prior to the movers’ arrival.
  • Plan your easy to prepare meals, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the stove and fridge again.
  • Say thanks to your old place.


  • Be present when the movers arrive so you can walk them through the home and indicate what you need moved or anything in particular, they should be aware of.
  • Once all belongings are loaded onto the moving truck, be sure to do one more walkthrough and lock all windows and outside doors.

Moving and Packing Tips


Moving and Packing Tips

  • Get rid of clutter and donate things you are no longer using
  • Set aside stuff to sell
  • Sort things by category
  • Pack decorating items weeks prior
  • Use smaller boxes for heavy items as books and tableware. Write “Fragile” on a side of the box and on the top of the box. Write “Heavy” on the boxes, that have books or any other heavy items. It’s also a good idea to avoid wrapping china in newsprint; the ink can stain your dishes.
  • Label your moving boxes as detailed as possible. This will help you at your new home to locate all the necessary items quickly.
  • Label each box with a room, so the movers can put the boxes for you in the correct order.
  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  • Save time for the kitchen. It takes the longest to pack up because you have to make sure everything is individually wrapped. 
  • Bubble wrap electronics and TVs to protect them, if you don’t have the original boxes.
  • Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.
