Whether you are moving out of a home or an apartment, moving somewhere local or to another state, a Moving Checklist is an essential tool for planning and peace of mind. It's no small task packing your things, deciding whether to rent a truck or hire a mover, and keeping the whole process organized. This free printable moving checklist takes you step by step - from what to do 2 months in advance (like arranging the transfer of medical records and scheduling utilities) to the weeks following your move (like completing your change of address checklist).
