The minute you know you are moving, start the packing the process. If you do not, it will sneak up on you and then you will be making decisions on what to keep based on lack of time or how rushed you are to be ready. You may want to set up a schedule of what to do and where packing falls into that process.


Start with creating a list. What needs to go on the list can be overwhelming so we will start with what you need to take care of first. We recommend two months before moving create a moving binder. it should have pockets to hold your receipts, a calendar for a moving schedule, a list of personal things to pack for the trip, and any other information you need for your move.

Whatever time you feel will be needed to pack, we recommend you add more time to that plan.
Do not wait to call moving companies to schedule your move. If you wait too long, then you will loose options on timing and pricing.

From the movers to the packing supplies to the deposits at your new place, moving can cause a strain on your budget. It doesn’t matter whether you’re moving down the street or relocating across the country: you’re going to need some funds to get it done. But you can limit the cost of the move by thinking ahead and being strategic.
You may also be able to save some dough by simply changing the date of your move to the middle of the month, since the majority of people are moving at the end or beginning of it.
