Moving-Check-List
The following list contains most of the big tasks that you'll need to do and some that you won't depending on whether you now rent, whether you're relocating to a new area or other factors. There may be things not on this list that you will have to do; add them to the space allotted. Your moving company may also provide its own moving kit. While MTS's moving checklist provides some valuable information, defer to the expertise of your moving company when dealing with them.
