Moving Checklist

Getting Ready to Move?

So you've got a contract on your house - now the fun begins.  You know you've got to pack but don't forget to let everyone know your new address. 

Here is a list of those to notify:

Provide the post office with your forwarding address two to four weeks ahead of the move.

Notify your credit card companies, magazine subscriptions, and bank of your change of address.

Create a list of friends, relatives, and business colleagues who need to be notified about your move.

Notify your children's school about your move (some school districts will require a change in school if your address changes).

Arrange to disconnect utilities and have them connected at your new home.

Cancel the newspaper, or change the address so it will arrive at your new home.

Cancel insurance coverage on the old residence.  Insurance on the new property is usually handled by the closing attorney so you HAVE insurance on the New home, but sometimes people forget to cancel insurance on the old home.  Most insurance is paid ahead for one year so you are entitled to a refund. You will want to check to see which insurance covers items DURING the move. Usually movers only cover what they pack.

Good Luck with your move.

There sure is lots to remember and think about when moving so it's good to have a list to CHECK OFF things. It's a mental way to know you've need to do things
