Failing to plan is like having a plan to fail. When it comes to moving, making a plan is a
must. Decide how you are going to approach getting everything done in a timely manner
to make sure it all gets done. Talk with your family to make a plan that all of you can
work together to accomplish.
Make a List, Check It Twice

before the move can happen then check everything off as it is completed. Make a list of
things to arrange like hiring a moving service or renting a moving truck, checking on
school information, etc. Make a list of moving supplies you will need then mark items off
as you get them. Lists can be your lifesavers to make this move go smoothly.
Call Ahead and Do Online Research
Set aside a time to call around your new state and new town. Make calls to find out
what you will need to change your driver’s license. You will need to find out how to get
utilities set up at the new residence. If you have school-age children, you will need to
find out what school district they will be in then find out what information that school will
need in order for your child to transfer in. Find out about the new state’s regulations
regarding pets moving from outside the state.

Do online research about your new town. Find out what’s available in the town before
you move there. Is there a Wal-Mart? Is there a church in your denomination there? Are
there parks in the area? Learn as much as you can before you even make your move.
Make a Schedule or Itinerary
Sit down with your calendar and make out a schedule or itinerary for your move.
Choose a moving date then work backward from there. Choose dates to pack, eadlines to secure all paperwork you will need, and make a schedule for everyone to
Make out an itinerary for your moving day. You will need to do an online search to
determine mileage and a driving route. Schedule in regular stops and create milestones
along the way — For example, “By 10 a.m.we will need to be in Memphis.” Allow time for
bathroom and fuel stops as well as eating.
Spending some time getting everything in order and learning about your new state can
make a long distance move a little easier. Do your research ahead of time, make a plan,
and create a schedule in order to make your move go as smoothly as possible.
