Moving Checklist

1 Week Pre-Move

Appliance Manuals
Ask the previous occupant for warranties and instruction manuals for appliances remaining in your new home.

Pack Kitchenware
Pack up all possessions that you won't need during the week of your move. This includes clothing, books, pots, pans, and kitchenware.

Newspaper Subscription
Subscribe to the local newspaper in your new community. You'll learn about community events and government issues.

Notify Friends
Be creative when notifying friends and family of your move. Consider sending an electronic greeting card or a sincere note in the mail.

Trash Removal
Make arrangements for final trash and recycling pickup. If you're leaving before the next pick-up date, ask neighbors if you can leave trash with them. You might also be able to drop off trash at the local dump.
