Six Weeks Before Moving:

  • Notify all magazines and subscriptions of change of address
  • Check with veterinarian for pet records and immunizations.
  • Contact utility companies for refunds of deposits and set turn off dates.
  • Dry clean clothes to be moved, and pack them in protective wrappers.
  • Collect everything you have loaned out and return everything you have borrowed.
  • Service power mowers, boats, snowmobiles, etc., that are to be moved and drain all gas and oil to prevent fire in moving van.
  • Check with doctors and dentist for all family record and prescriptions.
  • Get children’s school records.
  • Check freezer and plan use of food over next two to three weeks.
  • Remove all jewelry and other valuables to a safe deposit box or other safe place to prevent loss during move.
  • Give away or arrange for transportation of houseplants (most moving companies will not move plants, especially in winter) - Plants can also be sold at garage sales, or are perfect gifts for neighbors.

One-Two Weeks Before Moving:

  • Transfer or close checking and savings accounts. Arrange for cashier's check or money order to pay moving company upon arrival at new residence.
  • Have automobile serviced if driving long distance.
  • Fill out Post Office change of address forms, give to postmaster
  • Check and make inventory of all furniture and other large items. Specially label items going to your storage unit.
  • Dispose of all combustible and spray cans (spray cans can explode or burn – don’t pack them).
  • Pack a separate carton of cleaning utensils and tools (screwdriver, hammer, etc.). Make this a part of your moving kit.
  • Separate cartons and luggage you need for personal family travel.
  • Mark all boxes that you pack with the room they will be going to at your new residence.
  • Organize at least one room in the house for packers and movers to work freely.
  • Cancel all newspapers, garden service, etc.
  • Review the entire list to make list to make certain that you haven’t overlooked anything.
  • Check and double check everything you have done before it’s too late.

Moving Day:

  • Plan to spend the entire day at the house. Last minute decisions must be made by you – and don’t leave until after everything’s loaded
  • Hire a baby-sitter or send the children to a friend’s house for the day.
  • Verify your inventory while loading is underway.
  • Tell everyone about fragile or precious items.
  • Make a final check off for the entire house, basement, closets, shelves, attic, garage and other rooms.
  • Keep your inventory records with you to help with unpacking and to clearly identify what's still in storage.

Eddie, Mike and David worked their tails off, they were hustling and moving stuff non-stop until we were done. Truck packed, again Eddie assured me of the plan, discussed time frame and schedule for the rest of the day. He left and I felt at ease that my whole life was in the hands of a true more

I moved from a house to apartment and my 3-man crew was wonderful. They put blankets on everything and then wrapped it. Nothing was damaged and they put everything exactly where I wanted it, even putting my bed frame together. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them in the future. They're prices were comparable (if not a little less expensive). They were on time and worked efficiently. I can't say enough good things about them.

stacy bThe Patrick & Stephen crew was awesome! On time, efficient and super meticulous with our belongings!! I hope that I do not have to call movers for a bit but... if I do, I will specifically ask for this crew. Thank you, Patrick and Stephen!

Thank you for the opportunity to comment... I was in the USAF for over 25 years, moving 7 times in the last 11 years of my service, so I've had more than my share of moving experiences - both good and bad. Simply put, this was the BEST moving experience I have ever had! read more
