ABOUT 30 DAYS BEFORE YOUR MOVE (BEFORE THE IN-HOME ESTIMATE, OR OBTAINING A QUOTE OVER THE PHONE)
Sell, give away, toss or recycle anything you do not need to be moved. Go through every room in your house to sort through what will move with you and what will not. Believe it or not, this might be the hardest part of your move.
Have a garage sale or post adds/auctions online to get rid of any unwanted items. Somebody might be willing to pay for them. Do not wait to deal with this "last minute".
Donate your unwanted clothing, furniture or other household goods (electronics, pots, pans, dishes, bedding, etc.) to your favorite charities in town. Don’t forget to grab receipts showing the items’ approximate value for possible tax deductions.
Toss or recycle anything that can’t be sold, given as a gift or donated. Don't leave a pile on a curb once you move out.
Be sure to check the NON-ALLOWABLES list for items not allowed to be shipped. If you are unsure of how to properly dispose of these items, we recommend visiting earth911.com to help you find appropriate recycling centers in your neighborhood.
