  • Transfer your bank accounts.

  • Take animals to vet for immunization, if necessary.

  • Close and empty your safe-deposit box.

  • Settle any bills with local businesses.

  • Drain power equipment of oil and gas. Drain water hoses.

  • Find new homes for plants that will not be moved.

  • Defrost refrigerator and freezer, propping doors open.

  • Let movers pack your belongings (unless it's a do-it-yourself move).

  • Disconnect and prepare major appliances for move.

  • Set aside anything that will travel in your car so it will not be loaded on the truck.

  • Pack a box of items that will be needed first at the new house. Clearly mark this box "Load Last."
