Relocation Checklist

Relocation Checklist

Moving, buying and selling can be stressful, so keeping organized is a crucial step in making the process more manageable.

1. The biggest item of all is buying or selling a house, or both. Chris and Kim Knox can help with that. 541-840-3804.
2. Get rid of items you will not be moving. Hold a garage sale or donate to charity.
3. Find out whether your employer is paying for any moving expenses.
4. Get estimates from moving companies.

  • Check insurance policy to make sure possessions are covered during the move.
  • Make an inventory of everything to be moved
  • Collect everything you have loaned out and return everything you have borrowed
  • Move valuables and computer backup to a safety deposit box
  • Pack cleaning materials and tools separately
  • Pack a special box with essentials you’ll need for the first few days

6. Make a list of people and organizations that you will need to notify of your move.
