Choose your moving date wisely: It can be hard to work a move around a family schedule, but try to coordinate your moving dates on days you will have off from work anyways. This way, you will not have to use up precious vacation time or lose working days you need for your paycheck.

Notify utility companies in advance:  Be sure to let your utility providers know when you will be moving out. If you forget, you could be paying utilities for a home you no longer live in!

Use a portable storage unit: Don’t pay extra for services you do not need. A portable storage unit will allow you to pack at your own pace and when you are finished, 1-800-PACK-RAT will deliver the unit to your new location for you.
