Planning to move to a new place? Well, then you have come to the right place. Relocation could be a daunting task if you do not plan it well in advance. I would suggest that you create an action plan before you relocate. Below is the list of action plans you may create for moving:

Action Plan for your Home

The first action plan which should be created is for new home and neighborhood. New home is chosen based on various factors like school, transportation, cost, locality, crime rate, etc. Painting, repairing, cleaning, etc must be completed before you start to move your boxes.

Action Plan for Change in Address

When you move to your new home, fill change of address form at post office within 7 to 10 days of moving. Inform about change in address at various important places like banks, credit card companies, insurance agencies, etc. Get your address changed on your Driving license, vehicle registration, post office and voting ballot. If you have subscribed for any magazine or newspaper, inform them about the change in address.

Action Plan for Insurance

Check if the insurance coverage of your homeowner covers everything in your move.

Action Pan for Valuables and Important Documents

It is very important that you take good care of your valuable belongings. It should never be packed with other stuffs for the move. Carry them with you safely.

Action Plan for Packing

When packing, label your boxes with different instructions like ‘Fragile’ or ‘This Side Up’. If possible, use colored boxes according to different rooms of new house. This will help you save time while unpacking.

Action Plan for Utility Services

Inform your internet service provider, cable provider, newspaper provider to cancel the services before you move. Pay off pending bills if any.
