ONE MONTH BEFORE

PLAN WHAT IS GETTING PACKED

Estimate how big a truck you'll need and reserve it. Determine the right truck size with Penske's Truck Wizard.

Get boxes and supplies for packing. Save time and order moving supplies online now.

Pack out-of-season and non-essential items early.

Lighten your load. Donate unwanted items to charity or hold a garage sale.

Plan ahead and consider arrangements and travel for your pet.

TWO WEEKS BEFORE

THE FOUR P'S: PAPERS, POST OFFICE, PROVIDERS AND PEOPLE

Make copies of medical records, birth certificates, etc.

Change address with the post office, banks, credit cards and magazines.

Call service providers and utilities to schedule turn on date.

Secure moving-day help. Ask friends and family to save the date; reserve sitters; contact simplemovinglabor.com.

THE DAY BEFORE

LAST-MINUTE TASKS

Finish packing, taping and labeling boxes.

Prepare major appliances and electronics for the move.
