Eight Weeks Before Your Move? Here’s Your Must-Do Checklist
Professional movers advise leaving at least eight weeks to plan your move. Make sure you have plenty of time to do all the planning and clean-up for your move by creating a task list for each week. Start now, on Week 8, with these to-do items:
- Create folders or files for all records and receipts of moving-related expenses; important family records (such as children’s medical or school records);
- Research and locate a moving company, or, if you have decided to move yourself, a truck rental company.
- Make a floor plan of your new place, with each room’s dimensions. This will help you estimate whether all of your furniture and things will fit into your new home.
- Will you need a storage unit? Check out the available storage options near your new home.
- If you are moving to another country, research any requirements for foreign shipping, travel documents, and residence in your new location.
- Create an inventory of all your possessions. You may be surprised at how much you’ve accumulated, especially when there are children in the family.
- Begin identifying those items you will not be moving, such as worn-out or outgrown clothing, furniture, or equipment. Plan to sell, donate, or throw them away.
- Begin a list of necessary clean-up and repair tasks for each room in your current home: whether you rent or own your home, you will need to clean it up before you leave it.
Check off or cross out each task as you complete it-but not until you do it! You may not complete each task at the end of the week, but if you’ve made a good start on each one, then you’ll be on your way to a successful move.Press Credit: Mr Clean

Packing Like a Pro
- Boxes (Avoid unsanitary supermarket boxes)
- Bubble wrap and packing paper (Caution: Newspaper ink rubs off.)
- Packing tape , scissors, and rope or bungi cords
PACK A SPECIAL BOX
Pull aside the following to keep with you on the moving day so you know they’re safe and handy if you need them:
- Jewelry and other valuables
- Birth certificates, medical and dental records, passports
- Legal and financial documents, Apartment lease
- Pen and paper
- Light bulbs
- Paper towels, and trash bags
- Scissors, tools, flashlight
- Prescription drugs

Pack a little at a time, starting with off-season and rarely used items. Label two sides of every box with the room it goes into.
Line cartons with packaging material and wrap each piece separately. Place plates standing on their edges, not flat. Cushion boxes containing glasses and cups by using towels, potholders or other soft material.
Leave clothing in drawers or pack in suitcases. Pack hanging clothes in wardrobe boxes so they arrive clean and pressed.
- Take apart BEDS and tape hardware to the frame. Protect mattresses with a fitted sheet or plastic cover.
- Remove TABLE legs, pad and tie together. Tape hardware under the table top.
- Wrap PAINTINGS and MIRRORS in blankets or rugs.
