move, moving, tips

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.

Six Weeks Before Your Move

Moving Date

Confirm your moving date then notify your landlord if you are renting.


Check your home or renters insurance so you are covered from move-in day. Get written estimates from movers and check limits on their insurance.

Moving Day

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.

Two Weeks Before Your Move

Packing materials

Buy boxes and packing tape.

Start Packing

Start packing non-essentials and out of season clothing.

Medical Records

Ask doctor and dentist for records or file transfer.

Mail Redirect

Start mail forwarding 2-3 days before move day.

Child and Pet Care

If you have kids or pets arrange friends to take care of them on the moving day.
