When it comes to moving, you are going to want to keep a checklist in order to stay organized during your move. Eleven or more weeks before you move you’re going to want to make sure you get all of your moving records, notes and contact information together in a binder. Six to eight weeks before moving you should donate any large items to charity and get your medical records. Finally, a week before you move make sure you provide your employer with your updated contact information.
- 6 to 8 weeks before you move, identify any hazardous items that need to be recycled in a special way such as old electronics or batteries.
- 4 to 6 weeks before moving, arrange for your mail to be sent to your new home and get moving boxes and other moving supplies.
- One week before your moving day, provide your employer with updated contact information and scan important documents such as passports and medical records.
