If you’re like many people, moving is incredibly stressful – and you’re wondering what you’re supposed to do in order to get everything accomplished in time.
If you follow the right timeline, you’ll be able to get everything done so your move can go as smoothly as possible.
4 Weeks Before You Move
When you’re a month away from the big day, call all the subscription services you use to change your address – that way, they’ll have ample time to make the switch so your magazines and other subscriptions make a seamless transition to your new home.
Set up appointments with the cable company, satellite network or other contractors at least a month out; that way, you can ensure that you’re getting the services you need without interruption.
Now is the perfect time to begin packing, as well. If you got a head start because you rent a storage unit while you were staging your home or you’ve already started packing, then you’ll be in great shape.
2 Weeks Before You Move
Change your address with the USPS. You can do this online in just a few minutes.
This is also the right time to donate items you don’t want to move with or throw out things you don’t need in your new home. After two weeks of packing, you have probably discovered several items that you don’t want to bring along.
1 Week Before You Move
Reconfirm your reservations with the moving company or double check with the friends you’ve asked to help you move. If something falls through, you’ll still have time to come up with an alternate plan at this point.
2 Days Before You Move
Put together a “necessities” bag that includes toiletries, medications, and other things you’ll need once you move into your new home (but before you unpack).
It’s also a good idea to pack special bags for children that include snacks, entertainment items, pajamas and favorite toys.
