It’s time to start finalizing the last details of your move.
3 Weeks Before Your Move
3 weeks before your move is when the real countdown begins. In this phase you need to start finalizing the last details of your move. If there are any unfinished tasks from the previous phase, it would be a good idea to finish them as soon as possible.
Moving Out of a Rental Unit?
If you didn't do so by now, this must be the latest time for you to give notice to your landlord. Be sure to do that right away to avoid late-payments.
Finalize all Details with Your Moving Company
It would be very wise to finalize all the following details with your moving company. Keep in mind that most moving companies book moves for 3-4 weeks ahead. This fact is even more important if you scheduled your pick up date for a weekend. Here is the list of details you must finalize with your moving company:
Packing and Unpacking
Dispose of Combustibles and Flammables
Federal laws and regulations forbid your moving company to transport dangerous flammable items and liquids such as:
Drain fuel from your lawn mower and other machinery. Discard partly used cans of oil, thinner, bleach, or any other substances that may be flammable. Discard propane tanks which are used for barbecue grills.
Moving with Pets
Make transportation arrangements for your pets. Take your pets to your veterinarian to ensure proper up to date health certificates and rabies inoculations. Some states will require these documents.
