FAQ About Relocating


Q: What is the best way to coordinate the details of my move?

A: Have a moving schedule. If possible give yourself two months to implement your move. Decide if you will use professional movers or move yourself. Inventory your possessions and dispose of unneeded items. Have a garage sale. Obtain and transfer all personal documents and health records. Use a change of address kit to notify every one of your new location and transfer all your present accounts and records. Gather moving supplies, boxes, tape, packing materials, and markers. Be sure to have a box of necessities and cash on hand to carry you through the first couple of days in your new home.

Q: How can I keep my family involved in the move?

A: Families especially children can get lost in the shuffle. Allow children to communicate openly about feelings, questions and concerns. Tell them what is going on and make decisions as a family. Explore communities, schools, and entertainment spots together. Assign individual tasks and responsibilities. Include everyone in the process.
