sure you do a thorough sweep of any items you may have forgotten and left behind. Attics are often out of sight and out of mind and the focus of packing is often primarily on the parts of the home visibly seen. A good tip is to start packing up your attic first, so that you know it is clear, clean and nothing is forgotten. If you have a larger attic or multiple attics, try to start packing up your attic several weeks in advance of your move, so that you will have enough time to properly pack, sort, donate or sell any items you don’t wish to move.
Change of Address
Updating your address is one of the easiest items to complete, but often one that people forget. Once you determine what your new address will be, make provision to have your address changed across all your personal documentation, credit holders, identification, contacts, employer, medical providers, insurance carriers and any other places where you need to have updated records.
If you are in the process of moving, it can be easy to forget about items on the exterior of your home. From patio furniture to items stored in an outdoor shed, consider your entire home when you pack up and move. A good tip is to section your move out by interior, rooms and exterior items. Take inventory of what you have to move, and set reminders to remember to pack up your exterior items. This will help you to organize your move and help ensure that you don’t forget and leave any items behind.
