Moving Guide

6-8 Weeks

| 3-5 Weeks | 1-2 Weeks | Moving Day |

Moving America understands how stressful a move can be, therefore we have put together a "Moving Guide" in order to assist you prior to the big day:

Six to eight weeks before moving:

  • Choose a moving company
  • Create a "Moving Planner Folder" file using an organizer folder with pockets to keep track of all your moving details and collect your receipts for moving-related expenses
  • Start to use up things you can't move, such as frozen foods and cleaning supplies
  • Learn about your new city and community
  • If you're moving at an employer's request, verify your moving budget and your responsibilities
  • Obtain information about what moving expenses may be tax-deductible
  • Make a list with three columns: items to leave behind, items for moving company to move, and items you will 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.
  • Make a list of everyone you need to notify about your move: friends, professionals, creditors, subscriptions, etc
  • Begin to enjoy the local paper in your new community
  • Locate all motor vehicle registration and licensing documents
  • If you will need to store some of your belongings, make the necessary arrangements now
  • Collect all your personal records (school, medical, legal, and accounting). Ask for referrals where possible.
