whether your lease is fixed-term or periodic as this will determine whether or not
you can give notice
Create a list of items that you want to move
If using professional movers, use the list you have created to get a range of
quotes from moving companies

worksheet. Make sure you take a copy of all packing worksheets so that you
can check everything arrives at your new home
