Preparation for moving - 2 Weeks prior to move

 

Preparation for moving 2 weeks prior to move ought to include cleaning out your basement, attic, and closets. Ask your mover for a list of items that are not permitted, and discard hazardous materials like ammunition, fireworks, aerosol cans, acid, and matches. Drain the fuel from your power equipment, and get rid of propane tanks.

Make a moving out checklist and refer to it frequently. Inform the moving company if there are any changes in your schedule, and if you need any additional services like packing and moving storage. Confirm arrangements with auto movers and pet movers, if applicable.

If you have not made bookings with a moving company, do it immediately. Obtain moving quotes in writing from at least three movers and call up references to make sure that they have a good track record. Check to see if the service providers are licensed and insured.

To get free moving estimates from the pre-screened movers in your area, please fill out the form given on this page. Your contact information will never be given out to anyone without your authorization, and there is no expense or obligation involved at all.

Make arrangements with a service technician to have your appliances disconnected and prepared for shipping. Have your car serviced if you are planning to drive to the destination.

Clear out safety deposit lockers. Clean out all your gym and school lockers, and make arrangements to cancel newspaper and other regular deliveries. Transfer all your prescriptions to your new city of residence.

Arrange to have the value of antiques appraised. Gather all important documents like bonds, deeds, wills, and insurance policies, and carry them with you when you move. 

Have draperies and rugs dry cleaned and leave them in their wrapping while they are being shipped.
