Others have not moved in years and wouldn’t know how to even begin the process. One emotion everyone who has ever moved has experienced: STRESS!! We understand this. And we strive daily to minimize this for you.

Something you can do to help minimize your stress throughout your moving process is to start as early as possible. If you are able to plan your move two months out or more, the following checklist may be helpful:

1. Begin to remove clutter (start with the basement, attic, garage, and other storage areas)
2. Start a file for all your moving paperwork (estimates, receipts, etc.)
3. Arrange to transfer school records
4. Choose a mover (or truck rental company)
5. Get your new home ready – Contact painters, carpenters, plumbers, roofers, etc. so your home is ready
when you arrive. Remember to change the locks on all the doors in your new home
