Moving Resource Guide

Stay on Track with these Moving Resources

With 20 years of moving experience, we understand how chaotic the process can get. Big projects like house hunting and job searching are enough to handle by themselves, and they don’t even include smaller details like forwarding mail or setting up utilities. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when planning a move, but following some simple advice can make a big difference. Get started by downloading our comprehensive moving checklist, and then use the resources below for help completing each task.

Researching Cities, Schools and Moving Companies

Time spent preparing for a move is time well spent. Start the preparations by learning about your new location and figuring out how to get belongings there. While you likely have a general idea of where you’re moving, finding the best neighborhoods and schools can help narrow down the options. And knowing you’re using a reputable moving company can make the process easier.

Transferring Information

Seamlessly transition to a new location by transferring all personal information to the appropriate areas. While you’ll also need to update addresses for multiple services (credit cards, rewards programs, online streaming services, etc.), city resources, government records and medical information are incredibly important to keep current.

Preparing Your Home and Family

Other preparations must be made before the move can take place. Everything from learning about restrictions in certain areas to preparing your children and pets for the change are necessary for helping the move go smoothly.
