Checklist

Three Months Prior to Moving

  • If possible, plan your move outside of the peak season (late spring and summer months). Most movers are booked during this time, which makes it hard to hire the mover you want.
  • Survey your house (don’t forget the garage, attic, shed and basement). Start making mental lists of items that will not be

  • Have a yard sale to get rid of items you will not be moving. Donate unwanted items to organizations such as The Salvation Army.
