Moving Checklist - Sellers

To help your move be as stress free as possible, please review the following moving checklist:

  • Contact the US Postal Service to change your address once you know your move date.
  • Take a photographic or video inventory of household furniture and belongings.
  • Check with your insurance agent to ensure you are covered during the move.
  • Make sure you have packing supplies handy: boxes, marking pen, bubble wrap, newspaper and tissue, tape, scissors and a tape measure. 
  • Pack one room at a time. Label each box and indicate:
    1. Which room it goes in
    2. If it is fragile
    3. If it should be unloaded first 
  • Contact gas, electric, phone and cable companies at least two weeks prior to your move. Arrange to have the services up and running at least one day before you move in.
  • Have your utility companies and/or town do a final reading of the gas, electric and water meters the day of closing. 
  • Prepare for the first night in your new home by packing items you will need accessible in a separate bag and carry it with you 
  • Obtain medical and dental records, x-rays and prescription histories. Ask your current doctor and dentist for referrals and transfer prescriptions.
