Once all of your belongings are out of your house be sure to do a deep clean. This is incredibly important if you are a renter.
While this may seem like just another thing that’s added to your plate, get copies made of all of the keys before you move. In all of the chaos of the move it would be easy to lose a key, and that is the last thing you want to deal with on your moving day.
Before beginning to pack furniture up, be sure to make copies of documents like tax returns and birth certificates and keep them in a secure place.
