One Month + Before the Move

  • Review your relocation package if you have one, and determine what expenses will be paid by your company
  • Start a log of moving expense receipts (some may be tax deductible)
  • Get written estimates from at least 2 moving companies, including their written commitment of pickup and delivery dates.  Get references.  Check the limits of insurance they offer, and if it covers replacement cost.  Purchase additional insurance if necessary
  • Arrange for storage facility, if you plan to store any contents.  Again, check insurance
  • Arrange transport service for pets or vehicles if needed
  • Complete a change of address form with the Post Office to re-route mail
  •  Organize all important documents in a fire-safe box.  Some things you want to include are school records, home purchase/sale papers, will, marriage/divorce papers, pet documents, financial records, stock certificates, National Insurance cards, birth certificates, and passports
  • Give notice of resignation to any clubs, organizations or volunteer activities you belong to
  • Cancel newspaper subscriptions
