Six to Eight Weeks Before Moving

Around six to eight weeks before your move, it is a great time to start thinking of changes in organizations. Arrange to transfer veterinary records or notify any gyms or organizations to cancel or transfer your membership. You should also contact your insurance agent(s) to determine what adjustments you need to make to your new insurance polic(ies).

Three to Five Weeks Before Moving

Around the three to five-week mark, you should start purchasing the moving supplies you need like boxes, sharpies, and tape. You can begin packing the less-used items in your home while keeping track of your moving date. This is also a great time to notify your utility company, post office, and moving company of your timeline.
