Preparing is the best thing you can do to set yourself up for moving success. Prior to your move, set up your postal mail forwarding, start utility service at your new location, and stop service at your current location. Head to the store and gather all your moving supplies. This should include boxes, markers, tape, labels, sandwich bags, plastic wrap, and any other packing equipment you might need. Well in advance of relocating, consider how you will conduct the move. Will you be doing it all yourself or hiring a moving company? Don't forget to reserve a truck if needed.
