This checklist will help prepare you for your move. Please feel free to contact your local Master Movers with any questions.

A month before the move

  •  Reserve a moving company for your move. Master Movers can also pack up your house for you.
  •  Visit your local Master Movers to purchase boxes and necessary packing supplies.
  • Start to clean out closets, the garage, attic and basement.
  • Host a garage sale or donate your unwanted things to charity.
  •  Arrange to transfer school records.
  • Get change of address cards from your local post office.
  • Notify magazines, charge accounts, insurance companies, clubs and all other organizations of your change of address.
  • If possible, get owner’s manuals for appliances in your new home.

One to two weeks before the move

  • Make a “survival closet” of things you will need for the final clean-up and include a snack for the last day.
  • If you decide to pack yourself, label all the boxes as you pack. Write the destination room on the top and sides of each box to ensure it gets to the right place in your new home.

The week of the move

  • Mail in your change of address forms.
  • Clean the stove.
  • The day before the move

The week of the move
