This is a great time to begin the details of your move.
Make a list of items you plan on moving to your new home and items you wish to take to storage. Make a list of items to be handled by the mover and those you will handle yourself. Dispose of the items that you do not need and consider a garage sale if you have time.
Get estimates from several moving companies.
Research and select a professional moving company. After selecting your mover, discuss costs, packing, timing and other necessary details.
Many moving expenses are tax deductible, so maintain a file with important information and receipts for moving related expenses.
If moving to a new community, find out about the schools, parks, recreation, and community programs from the local Chamber of Commerce or Visitor's Bureau.
Transfer medical, property, fire and auto insurance through your insurance agent.
Place all your medical records in a safe place. Do not forget prescriptions, vaccination records and other important information.
