Moving Checklist

If you are ready to move in the Fargo / Moorhead area, this handy moving checklist will help make your move as smooth as possible. Just follow the checklist below step-by-step! Also, feel free to contact us if you need help selling your current home—we are here to help!

Two Months Before Move

  • Get moving quotes if you are planning on using a professional mover.
  • If you need a rental truck for a "do-it-yourself-move," contact a rental company.
  • Visually prepare or design a floor plan for your furniture in your new home.
  • Create a list for inventory of your belongings. This is helpful in preparing a garage or moving sale.
  • Keep all of your paperwork concerning the move in one file, so nothing is lost or misplaced.
  • Transfer all school records for your children.
  • Finalize your decision on a mover.
  • If time permits, prepare your new home for arrival.
  • Consider your children in the move. Plan ahead and visit our informative moving with children guide.

One Month Before Move

  • Change your address.
  • Change you address with the IRS.
  • Make any travel arrangements where you will need an airline, train, hotel, bus or car rental.
  • Research the area into which you will be moving for clubs, civic organizations and churches, so that you can change your membership.
  • Contact medical and dental offices to receive records, asking these professionals for referrals and continuing prescriptions.
  • If necessary, establish a new checking account.
  • Research local laws about home-based businesses and business licenses if you own or operate your own business.
  • Arrange for your pets to be transported.
  • Use up or finish and discard household items so that there is less to pack and move.

Two Weeks Before Move

  • Forward your magazines and newspapers to your new address.
  • Contact your utilities and change your service to your new address.
  • Organize those helping you on the day of the move.
  • Confirm all travel reservations you have made.
  • If moving appliances, make sure they are inspected before the move.
  • Pack all clean clothing.
  • If necessary, close your bank accounts, making sure you have ample cash for the move. The remainder of the funds should be transferred to your new bank.
  • Keep important documents and valuables close at hand during the move.
  • Prepare for the move of any infant or small children.
  • Review your insurance policy for coverage during your move.
  • Provide relatives with your travel information.
  • Defrost your freezer and refrigerator.

Moving Day

  • Do a final walk through of the home to make sure all of your belongings have been removed.
  • Be sure to take control of all personal items that are valuable or important to you during the move.
  • You may want to purchase travelers checks instead of cash during the move.
