Records & Documents Remember to obtain copies of your and your family’s important documents such as medical records, dental records, vaccine information, as well as any veterinary records for the family pet(s). In some cases, to receive official documentation, a notarized letter is required. You may need to contact the American Medical Records Association to inquire about your new state’s requirements. You may also want to consider transferring current prescriptions to a drugstore near your new home.
Hidden Valuables If you have hidden any valuables around the house, be sure to collect them (valuables such as jewelry should be carried with you).
Phone Numbers Pack your current phone directory. You may not think you will need it, but chances are you may endure some charges for directory assistance to contact some old friends or tie up loose ends.
Dry Cleaning Dry cleaning, tailors, watches, shoe repair, and storage. Remember to return any loaned items (library books, movie rentals, borrowed items, etc.).
What is your new address? Keeping your new address on you will come in handy. This information is needed when forwarding mail, credit card bills, and business contacts. You may also want to post your new address where the kids can see it so they can share it with their friends.
Sparkling Clean Cleaning products should not be moved. When you do a final sweep before closing the door for good, leave out cleaning products. Many people make an arrangement in advance for this service to be done for them.
Plants & Pets In most cases, moving companies will not transport your plants or pets. Remember to make travel plans for them.
The Clicker Commonly, people forget to leave the electric garage door opener. Remember to leave the clicker for the new residents.
Bank on it It is wise to open a checking account in your new town at least one month in advance. You may need access to funds immediately; keep in mind a lot of banks will not cash out-of-town checks. Remember to also retrieve your important documents from your safe deposit box.
Spare Keys Remember to collect your spare keys. Whether it means retrieving keys from your neighbors or from under the front door mat, don’t forget to gather all sets of keys before you depart.
