  1. Pack an overnight bag with essentials, like pajamas and a phone charger, that you’ll need in the first 24 hours after your relocation.
  2. Be sure to take a photo of how your electronics (like televisions, stereos and gaming systems) hook up so you can easily reconnect the wires.
  3. Make sure to have digital copies of any important papers in case you need them mid-move.
  4. Compete and submit a change of address request with the US Post Office two weeks prior to your move for continuous mail service.
  5. Write both the room where the box should be placed and the contents of the box on two sides to ensure everything ends up in the right room and you know how to unpack!

  7. Pack your out of season clothing and household items first, you won’t miss them!
  8. If you have children or pets, be sure to make a plan for them on moving day!
