Moving Tip 1 on 1
AN ORGANIZED MOVING DAY IS GREAT
Below you will find tips and helpful moving resources we’ve assembled to help you best plan and prepare for your big day!
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF A SUCCESSFUL MOVE
PREPARING FOR YOUR MOVE
- De-clutter – donate or discard unwanted items. Consider donating gently used items to a charitable organization, they often they provide complimentary pickup services to help make de-cluttering easy and hassle free.
- Prepare an inventory of the items to be moved
- Arrange supply pick-up and delivery
- Complete a change of address with your local post office
- Transfer your insurance records
- If you have children, notify their school of your big move and make arrangements to have transcripts transferred (if necessary)
- Order address labels, stationary and new bank checks for your new home
- Notify utility companies that you will be changing your service location. It is best to do this early, as appointments can be set weeks out!
One Week Before You Move
- Designate a dresser drawer for bedding and towels. This ensures you don’t get stuck rummaging through boxes to find essential items the first night in your new home
- If you haven’t already, change your mailing address with your local post office.
- Stage packed boxes near the entry way of the home, this will make loading quick and easy, reducing the total time it takes to complete your move.
One Day Before You Move
- Prepare any mowers, snow blowers, boats, and snowmobiles for the move by draining gasoline and oil.
- Moving makes pets anxious too! Keep your pet calm by removing them from the hustle and bustle of moving day. Arrange for a friend to watch your furry friend on move day.
A STARTER BOX
A starter box is a moving box for the things you will need immediately or once you get to the new property. Most people forget to make a starter box. It should be the first box unpacked and the contents are the things you would need right away like a hammer, screwdrivers, nails and screws to hang pictures, toilet paper, medication and anything else that you will need like a remote for your TV. This box is best known as a bear necessities box. So when you move you know what you will need right away at your new home.
PACKING DISHES AND RECORDS
The best way to pack dishes and records is vertical. Straight up and down and not flat or on top of one another. If any damage occurs it is less likely to affect the other stacked around it.
NOTE: Never wrap lamp shades or China in newspapers the ink can ruin or soil the items. Also, AE suggests that you keep lamp shades with you when you move as unless they are boxed they are easy to damage.
PACK HEAVY SMALL AND LIGHT LARGE
When choosing boxes and packing methods for moving. Light item in large boxes and heavy items in small boxes works best.
PROTECT YOUR VALUABLES AND MEMORIES
The key here is to make sure your most valuable possessions are always with you. Expensive jewelry, cameras, old coins and precious memories should remain with you and not your mover. Here is a short list of the ideal items to pack in an “Important Box”.
- Children’s Health Records
- Insurance Information
- Photo Albums
- Birth Certificates
- Social Security Cards
- Stocks, Bonds, and Will
TRY NOT TO MIX AND MATCH
Placing items from one room into a box then another room into a box to fill space is tempting but will be time-consuming when it comes to unpacking. Instead, use towels or moving paper to fill those voids as loosely packed boxes can lead to damage.
RELAX AND ENJOY THE HELP

Change of Address
The process of changing your address is simple and since it will most likely not be the last time you will do it in your lifetime, you may as well learn how to do it now. Here are some tips to follow to help make changing your address as simple as possible.
Remind Yourself to Do It!
In the chaos of packing and moving, it can be easy to forget to change your address. Make sure you set reminders on your phone or on your calendar so it gets done. Ideally, you will want to request the change of address before you actually move so you don’t miss a beat.
Make Sure You Have the Right Address
If you will be living at a dorm, make sure you know the exact address. It could be that your school has its own mail distribution system and that the actual, physical address of your dorm is not relevant. Be sure to ask around and know exactly what address you need to change to
U.S. Postal Service
The logical place to go when it comes to changing your mailing address is the U.S. Postal Service. As you fill out the forms to change your address, you may notice that you are asked whether you want to file a permanent or temporary COA. A temporary COA allows you to have mail sent to your new address during specified periods of time up to 6 months. If you know you will be spending your time away from college at your home address, a temporary COA may be a good choice.
By Phone, By the Internet, By Form
There are a few different ways that you can complete a change of address through the U.S. Postal Service. You can submit changes via the Internet, which requires a $1 verification fee to ensure the change is legitimate. You can also call 1-800-ASK-USPS to change your address by phone. Most people typically fill out Form 3575 at their local post office when the time is right.
