- BEFORE MOVING – once your moving date is determined
- Proceed with the transfer of services: cable TV service, electricity and arrange for connection to the new address.

- Make your reservations in advance: trucks, movers, friends, etc.
- Reserve the elevator: many apartment buildings have fines for moving unexpectedly.
- Enroll children in their new school.
- Determine who will look after pets during the move
- Gather last and first night’s essentials in a cardboard box, such as sheets, pillows, medications and toiletries.
