Moving preparations are of utmost importance when planning a move. Being prepared ensures your Durham Movers will not leave any of your prized possessions behind. The following task list will help you prepare for the big moving day.


One month before your move, notify your doctors that you are moving and ask for a referral in your new area. You can go in person or online to submit your change of address to the Post Office. Be sure to contact your utility and cable companies to schedule discontinuation dates. You may be surprised and receive a deposit refund!


Two weeks before the big day, find organizations to donate clothes, books, furniture, and garage items you don’t want to move. If you’d rather attempt to make a buck, have a yard sale or post to Craigslist. Set aside things like seasonal decorations and clothing that you don’t use daily. When your Durham Movers arrive, they can begin packing these items you won’t need.


With less than a week to go, prepare your suitcases and vehicles for the road to your new home. Schedule childcare if needed for the days of packing and loading the truck. Empty the refrigerator of perishables and make a plan for cleaning up. You may want to donate canned food and paper goods to the local food bank.
