Moving into a new home is a great way to experience life in a new neighborhood and make room for current and future family members. Before you can start enjoying your new house, you will need to take care of a few important steps, such as hiring residential movers and accomplishing other tasks on your moving timeline. Use these tips to create your timeline:
Three Months Before Your Move
Start looking for a moving company at least three months before your move. This will give you plenty of time to work out a plan with the residential movers and make sure everything runs smoothly. Ask friends and family members for suggestions and then schedule interviews with each option to find the right one.
Two Months Before Your Move
Use your free time to start sorting through clothing, furniture, and other belongings in each room. Remove items that you no longer use or do not want to bring to the new home and donate or dispose of them. You can also pack items that you want but will not use until after moving into the new house.
One Month Before Your Move
As your moving date approaches, it is important to alert friends, family members, and others about your new location. Call your utility providers to set up a cancellation date or switch services to your new home. Contact friends, family members, and your children’s schools to alert everyone of your move.
One Week Before Your Move
Call your residential movers to confirm your moving date plans. Your family should pack all items that you will not need to use for the next few days. Each family member should also pack a first-night bag with clothing, toothbrushes, and other important items you will need right away after moving in to your new home.

Pets are more than just animals—they are part of the family. That is why it is important to prepare your pet when making the move into a new house. You can do this by having a friend or family member play with your pet while you pack your belongings and by keeping your pet in a quiet space when the residential movers are loading your boxes onto the truck.
It is also essential to bring certain pet documents with you, which is why you should schedule a visit to your veterinarian. During this visit, you can update your pet’s vaccination records and ask for copies of all of the necessary paperwork. You will also need a health certificate, a permit, and identification. Ask your veterinarian if any other documents are necessary for your move.

It is important to prepare your family before your move—including your pets. Moving can be a confusing and stressful time for animals; you can make sure your pet is ready to handle the adventure by following a few simple tips before your moving company arrives and during the move:
Let Your Pet Stay in a Quiet Room
Your pet may not understand if you try to explain what is going on during the moving process, but you can still keep him comfortable in a quiet space. Choose a part of the home that has already been cleared out, such as a bedroom or the backyard, and keep your pet comfortable in this private and quiet space while the moving company handles the heavy lifting.
Pack a Pet Bag for the Road
If you will be driving to your new home with your pet, make sure to pack a pet bag before leaving your current home. Include essentials such as water, a water dish, food, and treats. It is also a good idea to include items that will keep your pet occupied and comfortable, such as his favorite toys and a pillow or blanket.
Assign a Family Member to Pet Duty
One family member should be responsible for handling, playing with, and comforting your pet when you get to the new house. Decide who will be on pet duty before you get there so everyone knows what to do when you arrive.
Help Your Pet Get Comfortable in the New House
After the moving company brings all of your belongings into your new home, you can focus on making your pet feel comfortable in this brand new space. Unpack your pet’s crate, toys, dishes, and other belongings to let him know it is okay to start exploring.
