Checklist For A Smooth Move
5 weeks before Move-Out Day
- Take an objective look at what you own, and decide what can come with you and what can be left behind. Do you need those books you’ve read once and will never read again? That pan with the broken handle or the children’s long-neglected games? Remember – extra weight equals more money…
- Sit down and start organizing your move. Make a list with three columns: items to leave behind, items for Joe’s Moving to move, and items you’ll move by yourself.
- For each item you are not going to take with you, decide whether you will sell it, give it away to charity, or otherwise dispose of it before your move.
- Modify your mailing address. Your post office will have change of address announcement cards to help you with this task.
