Checklists Make Moving Easier

Make your moving checklist work for you
What's the best way to get through your move without excessive stress or forgetting something important? Print off a moving checklist and check tasks off as they're completed.

I know…it's tempting just to wing it. Who needs a moving checklist, right? Take it from a self-proclaimed obsessive list maker. It will make things easier.  

Until long distance moving is actually part of your life, it's hard to imagine the number of random things there are to take care of before you head out of town for good - like turning off utilities (and turning them on at your new place), cancelling memberships and subscriptions and picking up the dry cleaning.  You know that library book your son checked out two weeks ago? It has to go back. Did you remember to get copies of your medical and dental records? How about checking with the IRS for possible moving tax deductions? I'm telling you…there's a lot to remember.

The U-Pack moving checklist begins with the things you should do 8 weeks prior to your move and works down week-by-week to the things to do even after you move. It's such a handy, detailed way to make sure you do everything that needs to be done.

If you have questions about moving, whether it's something on your moving checklist or not, let us know. We'll be happy to help.
