Military Relocation to San Antonio

PCS Move to San Antonio Moving Checklist Final Days Before the Move

Do the following tasks a few days before you move:

Tasks Done
Set aside items that will not be packed, including suitcases.
For  items that will help set up housekeeping at your new address, ship them as “unaccompanied baggage.”
Create a household inventory list and carry it with you.
Make a complete inventory of all the boxes you will move so you can check them after you move in.
Help movers by attaching colored stickers to boxes. Prepare a color-coded map of your new house so they will know which rooms to take your belongings to.
Secure your cash, jewelry, important documents, your checkbook and other valuable items.
If you are renting a truck or other vehicle for your move, check it over to make sure everything is running properly.
Take note of the condition of your belongings. If anything is marked “scratched, dented or soiled,” note the location of the problem.
Clean your refrigerator and freezer, and dry them for 1-2 days with doors propped open. Place several charcoal briquettes in a stocking or sock in both the freezer and refrigerator to avoid musty odor.
Dispose of partly-used cans/containers of substances that may leak. If you are planning to take any jars of liquid with you, carefully tape and place them in individual waterproof bags.
Disconnect gas and electrical appliances.
Remove hanging objects scheduled for shipping from the walls, ceilings, and cabinet.
Remove outside TV antennas, air conditioners in windows,  and disconnect satellite dishes.
Drain water from hot tubs and waterbeds.
Switch utility services to your new address in San Antonio.
