PackingThree Weeks before Your Move:

Take inventory of your everyday household goods, such as radios, pots and pans and small appliances. Decide which items you will discard or put in storage.

Self-packers: start your serious packing. Label the contents of all boxes, and pack carefully.

As best you can, box essential items together, and write “Open First/Load Last” on these boxes. When you move into your new home, you’ll be able to easily identify these boxes and get to important items like pots, dishes, silverware, alarm clocks, bedding, pillows, towels, cherished toys and essential items for babies or children.

Contact your doctors, dentist and veterinarian to receive copies of medical records.

Make personal travel arrangements (flights, hotel, and rental cars) for your trip.

Contact your children’s schools, and arrange for records to be forwarded to your new school district.

Make new bank safety deposit box arrangements in your new hometown. Make arrangements to safely transfer items from your old safe deposit box to your new one.
