It goes without saying that the more time you have to plan your move, the better. While it seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done, there are ways to make your move as stress-free as possible. One is by hiring a reputable, full-service local moving company. Another is by starting a moving checklist as soon as you know you’re going to move.

The next step is to organize your to-do lists on a timeline. Some things can’t be checked off until right before you move. However, others can be accomplished weeks ahead of time. Here are three things you should take care of approximately six weeks before you move.

  1. Measure spaces. You’ll need to know the measurements of your current home when you call local moving companies for moving quotes. But you’ll also need to know the dimensions of your new home. Measuring now will help know how easy or difficult it may be for your residential mover to get your furniture into these spaces.
  2. Get supplies. If you’re using a full-service local moving company like Smooth Move, you should be able to order supplies directly from them. They’ll also be able to advise you on what you need.
  3. Use up supplies. Shop wisely in the weeks leading up to your move. For example, you don’t want to have to pack up tons of cleaning supplies and haul them to your new home. You should also use up perishable foods and avoid buying in bulk until you’re all moved in.
