Helpful tips as you help you move:
Declutter and donate. Your first step should be to declutter your house and donate any items you no longer need. You should do this a few months out — long before you start packing. 
Start vetting and reserving services early on. Book your packers, movers and moving trucks early on. This will ensure you get the dates you need (as well as the best rates). 
Pack an overnight bag for each member of the family. Think about what you’ll want access to on moving day and on the first night in your new place. Make sure to include snacks, water and anything else you might need. 
Get creative with packing materials. You don’t necessarily need packing peanuts or costly bubble wrap to keep your items safe. Consider using hand towels, dishcloths, blankets, socks and other soft belongings instead. (They need to be packed anyway, after all.) Label boxes systematically. Pack items by room and label each group of boxes with its own color (using stickers or a marker). This makes them easy to spot when loading, unloading and unpacking. 
Plan for your pets and kids. Little ones and pets could get in the way during the big move, so make sure you arrange for them to stay somewhere safe until you’re more settled. 
Utilities. Schedule your utilities at your new home in advance.

Forwarding address. Let your friends, relatives, service providers, employer, insurance companies, financial institutions, medical providers, school, etc, know your new address and place a forward at the post office for any persons or business you may have overlooked. Mailbox keys. Visit your new post office with a copy of your deed, settlement statement, your government issued ID, and the current mailbox keys to obtain new mailbox keys. Let the postal person know you’re moving into the home and would like the mailbox rekeyed for you at no charge. You will give them your current mailbox key (keep one to use until the mailbox has been rekeyed). If you tell the post office that the mailbox key has been lost or if you don’t provide a key, there will be a charge to rekey the mailbox.
