Two Month Moving Countdown: 1 Week Out
The final countdown
Prepare your appliances.
Be present when the appliance service representative arrives to prepare your appliances for shipment.
Check in with your move coordinator.
If you have any questions, reach out to your move coordinator. Go through your moving plan with him or her to confirm accuracy of all details.
If you are doing your own packing, be sure that everything is ready to go before moving day.
Double check you’re appropriately handling non-allowables.
Many common household items are on our list of non-allowables. Have you reviewed this list and made a plan for safe disposal of flammable substances? Non-allowables include items such as cleaning fluids, matches, fireworks, acids, chemistry sets, aerosol cans, ammunition, weed killer, gasoline, paint, bleach, propane tanks and anything that is flammable, combustible or stored in a container that is likely to leak. Be sure to follow proper disposal guidelines as these hazardous substances pose a threat to the water supply.
