Moving Checklist

For Long Distance Moves


• Decide what to move and what not to move. Possibly plan a garage sale!

Get estimates from several moving companies or truck rental companies, depending on how you plan to make the move.

• Plan your travel itinerary and making transportation and lodging reservations in advance. (Leave a copy with a friend or relative.)

• Transfer your bank accounts. They will be happy to open your accounts by mail.

• Contact your local credit bureau to find out if they are on the same system your new home town subscribes to; if not, they will be able to transfer your credit file.

• Request records from doctors and dentists, including eye glass prescriptions, dental x-rays, and vaccinations.

• Obtain your childrens’ school records to make for an easier transfer.

• Drawing up a floor plan of where your furniture should be placed. This will help avoid confusion for you and your movers.

• Pay existing bills and closing out local charge accounts.

• Record expenses incurred during your house-hunting trips. You will also want to save your moving expense receipts (if the move is employment-related) for tax deductions.

For Local Moves


• Decide what to move and what not to move. Possibly plan a garage sale (extra cash & less to move).

Get estimates from several moving companies or truck rental companies if you’re moving yourself. Be sure to obtain a hand truck (appliance dolly) if you’re moving yourself.

• Arrange transfer of children’s school records, if applicable.

• Draw up a floor plan of where your furniture should be placed to avoid confusion for you and/or your movers.

• Arrange any special movers, such as for an expensive piano, or such as is necessary to break down and move a pool table or above-ground swimming pool.
