- Check on our new house
Visit the house and go through all the rooms to get an idea of where you would like to place the furniture. Make sure that everything in the house is spotless, all in perfect condition, and is move-in ready.
- Start to look for a trusted moving company
Even though it is still a long way to go, it never hurts to start looking for a trusted moving company far before our moving day. You can start surfing the web or ask an experienced friend.
- Choose the date for our moving day
Deciding on the right date for our moving day is a big deal. Because it is important to plan well so you are always on track. Make sure that there are no family events or any events at all on our moving day.

- Start listing items
Start making a list of things to bring by making small notes. This note will also be useful for checking and making sure everything has been moved.
- Start sorting items
This is the time for you to start to declutter and leave things you do not need behind. Prepare a box with a label to make it easier for you to organize it in our new home.
- Separate documents and valuables
Keep our documents and belongings separate in a special bag that will always be at our fingertips. Bring them with you and do not leave this bag with a moving service.
