- Create a Moving Checklist
Make sure everything is accounted for by getting a checklist ready, Start with:

There’s just so much to plan and do. Break it down into categories and delegate them out and keep track on who will be managing each task. As the saying goes, teamwork makes the dream work!
- Create an inventory
