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:

Five weeks before moving:

  • Submit a Change of Address form to the post office
  • Arrange special transportation for your pets and plants
  • Arrange to disconnect/connect all utilities (gas, electric, oil, water, telephone, cable TV and trash collection) at your old and new address. Keep phone and utilities connected at your current home throughout your moving day
  • Arrange for insurance coverage in your new home (auto, homeowner's or renter's, medical and life)
  • Plan a garage sale to sell unneeded items or arrange to donate them to charity.
  • If necessary, make travel arrangements and arrangements and reservations for your moving trip
  • Collect important papers (insurance, will, deeds, stock, etc)

Four weeks before moving:
  • Create a floor plan of your new home and begin thinking about where you'll want to place furniture
  • Advance planning eases the stress of making major decisions when your furniture arrives at your new home
  • Mark and label specific pieces of furniture on your diagram and put it in yor Moving Planning Folder
  • If you're moving out of or into a building with elevators, contact the building management to schedule use of the elevators and inquire about any other guidelines that must be followed.

Three weeks before moving:
  • If you're packing yourself, ask your moving company to deliver an assortment of boxes, this service should be free and you should only have to pay for the boxes you use.
  • Start packing items you will not need to use until after your move
  • Have your automobile serviced if you're traveling by car
