Moving can be one of the most stressful times for any family. Stop and Store Harrisburg have produced a series of articles with moving and storage tips to help keep the process as smooth and problem free as possible.
Confirm your moving date then notify your landlord if you are renting.

If using friends instead of movers confirm with them and plan some drinks/snacks.
Reserve some storage space if needed.
Arrange final readings on utilities.
Start getting rid of some possessions instead of moving everything.
Buy boxes and packing tape.
Start packing non-essentials and out of season clothing.
Ask doctor and dentist for records or file transfer.
Start mail forwarding 2-3 days before move day.
