House Moving Checklist

By getting things done as early as possible, you'll probably find that your actual moving day goes smoothly and without hitch. Letting everyone know that you're moving house well in advance can save you from a whole list of new jobs to do when you arrive at your new destination.

Check out our suggestions for what to do:

  1. One Month Before Moving (or earlier)
  2. Two Weeks Before Moving
  3. The Day Before Moving
  4. On Moving Day
