1 Week Before Your Move

Loose ends

This is the time to tie up any loose ends. Check through this guide to make sure you haven't missed anything.

Confirm travel arrangements

Pack your suitcases and confirm your family’s travel arrangements (flights, hotel, rental cars, etc.). Try to keep your plans as flexible as possible in the event of a change of schedule.

Your new address

Contact your personal Move Counselor and make sure the movers have the address and phone number where you can be reached if you are not going directly to your new home.

Clean out the fridge

At least one day before moving, empty, defrost and clean your refrigerator and freezer. If necessary, prepare your stove to be moved. Try using baking soda to get rid of any odors.

Prepare your “First night survival kit"

This kit can contain items such as snacks, beverages and games for the kids to keep them occupied during the move. If your are stopping overnight be sure to pack essentials you'll need while your belongings are in transit.
