ORGANIZE THE PAPERWORK BEFORE YOU LEAVE

Whether on paper or online, you should make a moving out of state checklist.

Paperwork To Do Before You Leave

Consider your bills and cancel the ones that you don’t need.

See which bills can just be transferred to your new home. It’s easy to accidentally get a fine for not paying a bill that arrived at your old place.

And investigate what you can set up to coincide with your move. Internet access is a good example, you should do it at least 2 weeks before your move-in date.

Paperwork To Do In Your New Place

There will be some documents that you can’t do ahead of time. However, you can make a list beforehand of what you need to do. Like registering to vote in your new state.

SWITCH YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE

This should be high up on your moving out of state checklist. All states are slightly different so don’t risk breaking the law. Simply check how to do this for where you’re going ahead of time.

MOVING TO A DIFFERENT STATE WITH KIDS?

You’ll need to get their school records ready for their new adventure. Little kids? If they’re anxious about the big trip, consider reading them some positive stories about moving.

LEARN YOUR NEW ADDRESS

Start telling family and friends your new address in advance. You don’t want to miss any gifts, letters or cards! And the kids certainly won’t.

PLAN YOUR TRIP TO YOUR NEW HOME

OK, out of state move tips for transport: you need to plan what essential items you’ll need for the journey. Medicine, ID, favorite toys, all that.

If you’re driving then plan the hotel mid-way. And prioritize comfortable beds and peace and quiet. Because you know all that driving will be tiring.
