One Month Before Moving
After you’ve been on your house hunting trip and hopefully have spent time learning about the area, you’ll want to start gathering all the information to transfer. Be sure to locate new doctors, dentists, schools and insurance companies. You also will want to set up a calendar to make sure you’re on track over the month before you need to load up and head out.
Finally, one month before moving is a great time to get rid clothing, furniture and other household items you don’t need anymore. Rather than moving them with you, donate them to charity or have a garage sale. You can also use apps like Facebook Marketplace or OfferUp to post your items for sale.
3 Weeks Before Moving
Three weeks before you move, you can spend this time informing people you know of your new address. One of our favorite things to share with our clients is a change of address card template that alerts people you’ve moved to Texas. Zazzle has lots of fun designs that feature Texas. Check out this card design on Zazzle, or you can also find dozens of other moving announcement styles on Minted.
2 Weeks Before Moving
Two weeks before your move, be sure that everything that is held at your local bank or safety deposit box is transferred over. Start to pack your clothes and toiletries in bags that will not be put in the moving truck. In addition, be sure your moving company has also supplied you with a list of things that they do not allow in their moving truck so you can plan accordingly. Often they will not allow any aerosols, cleaning products, or combustible items that are unstable with extreme temperature changes.
1 Week Before Moving
It’s time to clean up and get ready for the big move! Be sure to clean out your refrigerator and let it dry out at least 24 hours before you move out. Discard all the toxic chemicals, aerosols, and paints or oils that you have around. Ensure propane tanks are removed from grills and heaters, and all of your outdoor equipment is taken care of like hoses, mowers, and other equipment.
