Move-Out Checklist: 4 To-Dos that You Can't Forget
Moving is a hectic time. You’ve got do a thorough house cleaning, pack up all the boxes, make arrangements for key drop-offs, and much more. Juggling everything can get a bit crazy, but a little organization will help you plow through your moving to-do checklist in no time. Get these four things done before you leave for your new home, and you’ll be in great shape.
1. Schedule a Professional House Cleaning
When you’re moving out of your home, your regular cleaning routine won’t cut it. If you don’t clean the home properly, you could end up facing fees from new owners or the home’s landlord. Avoid that hassle by hiring a professional cleaning service to do the work for you. Not only will hiring a cleaning service free up time in your schedule, but you will also be able to rest assured that the cleaning will be acceptable to the landlord or new owners.

2. Cancel Your Utilities
Before moving day, call all of your utility companies and give them a shut-off date or a date to transfer your services to your new home. This will stop you from paying for services you’re not using and prevent any delay in service at your new home.
3. Change Your Address
Head to the post office and complete a Change of Address form. This form will alert the post office to forward your mail to your new address. It can take a few weeks to process the form, so do it early. It is also a good idea to contact your bank, credit card companies, and other lenders to tell them your new address.
4. Arrange an Inspection and Key Drop-Off
Have the new owners or landlord inspect the property before you go and sign an agreement that everything is in satisfactory condition. You will also need to arrange a time and place to drop off your keys before you head to your new home.
