Texas Movers Timeline and Checklist

Moving to a new place can get overwhelming pretty fast. Here’s a checklist to help make sure you’ve got the basics covered. Happy moving!

6-8 weeks out
  • Set your budget.
  • Sort through what you’ll take and what you’ll sell, donate or throw away.
  • Get boxes and other packing supplies.
  • Start packing things you don’t need right away. 
  • Schedule movers or reserve a moving truck. If possible, you’ll want to avoid weekends and the last day of the month since those are peak moving times. 
  • Schedule the day you want your current utilities turned off. You can start new or transfer existing service with us in just minutes. 
2-4 weeks out
  • Change your address and notify your bank, monthly memberships and service providers. 
  • Pack the majority of your things. Pack plates vertically so they’re less likely to break. Try using towels and linens to wrap breakables—it saves money and space.  
  • Service your car if you’re driving further to your new home.
  • Walk-through your home and list repairs needed.
  • Confirm arrangements for moving day. 
1 week out
  • Clean your fridge and consider donating what you can’t take.
  • Arrange for child or pet care for your moving day. 
  • Pack an overnight bag for your first night in your new home. 
  • Clean and do laundry.
