Gather moving supplies, boxes, tape, rope.
If moving far away, make any necessary travel arrangements like airline, hotel, and rental car reservations. Or plan your travel route if driving.
Call a moving company or make truck rental reservations to move yourself.
Finalize real estate and apartment rental needs.
Place legal, medical, and insurance records in a safe and accessible place.
