Once you’ve chosen a moving company it’s time to go over the contract. Read it thoroughly before signing it. Scrutinize it to ensure that it lists the correct price, that the pickup and delivery dates and times are as promised and that everything you asked to be put in writing is included.
Don’t sign any contract that has blank spaces or if it isn’t signed by the moving company.
Never pay an upfront deposit and never pay in full until you have thoroughly checked all of your belongings after delivery.

Consider saying goodbye to everyone at the same time by holding a going-away get together for friends, family, colleagues and neighbors. Plan the party to take place before you start dismantling the contents of the house and packing boxes.
Set out perishable and canned food, houseplants, cans of paint and any other items you won’t be taking with you and tell everyone to help themselves. Make sure you mention you’ll be doing this on the invitation, which can be formal and sent via snail mail or on Facebook, via email or by phone.
