To Do List: 3 Weeks Before Moving

• You should know how you are moving and have all the arrangements finalized (Dircks).

• Start packing anything that is non-essential (anything that you use very rarely).

• Keep boxes well labeled by Room. It may help to mark the room in the old home as well as the room to take it to in the new home.

• Separate out any valuables that you will need to move yourself (keep them together).

• Set a box aside that will be filled with items you will need the day you move (tools, small parts from furniture, etc.).

• Create an inventory list of all the items and include serial numbers where available for items you need to insure.

• Fill out a change of address form with the U.S. Postal Service (don’t wait until the last minute or mail you need won’t be at         your new home).

• Make sure that friends, families, neighbors, and employers all have your new address.

• Notify your insurance and credit card companies of your change of address.

• Cancel automated payments associated with the old home and all of them if you are switching banks.

• Make sure that you get all vehicles into the shop for a tune-up so that they are ready for the move.
