Moving Checklist: 2 Months Before Moving Day


Two months before moving day is the perfect time to start preparing for your big move. Begin by researching moving companies and getting quotes, then decide on a company and book them. Declutter your home and donate items you no longer need, and create an inventory of all your belongings. Notify your landlord or real estate agent of your move, as well as your utility companies to arrange for disconnection and reconnection at your new home. Start packing non-essential items, and notify important contacts such as your bank and credit card companies of your move. If necessary, arrange for transportation of your vehicles and temporary housing. Notify your insurance company and obtain necessary paperwork for your new home. Don't forget to arrange for mail forwarding with the post office and confirm details with your moving company, including dates and times. Finally, pack a box of essentials for your first night in your new home.
