Plan Right, From The Start

When planning a move to a new house or apartment, experts suggest beginning the planning at least two months in advance, to make sure you don't miss anything.

What do you need 2 months for? Well, the answer is... rather a lot. I'm not going to list every item, you can see the full list at by clicking here.

The short and sweet version is simple - don't leave it all to the last minute, or you'll regret it.

The new checklist from breaks the planning process down into 5 distinct stages and explains what needs to be accomplished for each checkpoint, so it's nice and easy, even if you've never moved before.

The process begins two months before your move date with basic planning, such as setting a moving budget, making an inventory, and requesting rate estimates from at least 3 local professionals.

This is also when you should decide if you're going to do it all yourself, hire a full-service crew to do it all, or something in the middle.

All The Details You Need, In One Place has up-to-date techniques for every part of the process, with in-depth information or video guides available for many of the more complicated steps. So if you're having trouble deciding, why not find out what the process is like?

It's not just packing and moving either, these in-depth reports provide details about how to find an optimal location to move to, what to look for in a new home, and many less-obvious steps that are often forgotten about, such as how to request a change of address at the post office.

They don't just cover all the bases, they help you to pack them up nicely, and get them to your new apartment as well.
