Moving Checklist For Sellers.  Moving can be hectic everyone and anyone who has ever moved knows the challenges you face.  Every time you move there are new hurdles to overcome.  Below is a general list of reminders to help you through the process.  
  • 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
  • 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
  • Check insurance coverage for the items you're moving.  Usually movers only cover what they pack
  • Clean out appliances and prepare them for moving or for staying
  • Note the weight of the goods you'll have moved.  Watch for movers who add excessive padding to add weight
  • Check with your condo about any restrictions on using the elevator or particular exits for moving
  • Have a keep with me, or a open first box with the things you'll need most, such as toilet paper, soap, trash bags, scissors, hammer, screwdriver, pencils, paper, snacks, daily essential
Plus, if you're moving out of town be sure to:
  • Get copies of your medical and dental records and prescriptions for your family.  If possible refill all prescriptions before you go so you don't have to worry about it immediately when you move
  • Get copies of your children's school records for transfer
  • Arrange for your pets travel needs
  • Let a friend or relative know your route
  • Empty your safety deposit box
