It’s moving day and you have 10,000 things going through your brain. Create a checklist for yourself so you can work efficiently with your mover.

Before the mover arrives, make sure all of your belongings are packed and fastened securely. Create an inventory (or get a form from your mover) of the items that will be transported.

Complete any paperwork with your mover that’s needed to ensure any special moves and fragile items are transported securely. Also, make sure that your mover has the correct address and your contact information.

After loading your belongings, go back into your space and check:

• water
• furnace or air conditioner
• lights
• utilities arranged for disconnection (if needed)
• windows shut
• doors locked
• old house keys surrendered
