Moving Day Checklist

What to Take With You

As part of your moving day checklist, create a “Take-with-me Inventory” list. It is generally suggested that you take with you important papers that can be a headache to replace, jewelry and other small irreplaceable items.  Also, perishable items such as snacks for the trip, your houseplants and any medications. Don’t forget your pets either! Moving can be stressful for the whole family but making moving checklists like these can be a great help.
