Two Months Before You Move

  1. Sort Your Belongings
    Start going through your belongings room by room and work on downsizing. We all accumulate things over time, and typically the longer you’ve lived in your home, the more things you have that you may no longer be using. Decide what you want to take with you and what you want to sell, donate, or discard.
  2. Sell or Donate Items
    The more you downsize, the less you’ll have to pack! Starting the process as early as possible will make your life easier and allow you to have time to sell things if you’d like.
  3. Take Inventory & Photos
    Make a list of everything you are taking to your new home and take photos of your furniture and artwork.
  4. Get Quotes From Moving Companies
    Contact several different moving companies to get quotes for your move. Even without an exact address, you can start getting an idea of how much to budget for moving expenses.
  5. Create a List of Expenses
    Create a list of all the necessary expenses your move may include, like hiring a moving company or getting a rental truck, as well as purchasing items like appliances and furniture that you will need for your new home.
