In making preparations for a move, it's easy to get bogged down with all the details and things to do. Military.com can help you stay on top of it all with these handy checklists, which cover everything from packing to setting up in your new location. These ready-to-print lists will remind you what you need to do.
Be sure to take care of all the items on these lists. For example, if you're one month away from your move and you use these checklists for the first time, make sure you've already taken care of the items in the "Three Months Before Moving" and "Two Months Before Moving" checklists.
These checklists can also be viewed and printed in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. You will need to download an Adobe Acrobat Reader for free if you don't have the program already.
If you plan to do a Do-It-Yourself (DITY) move, see our Comprehensive Look at DITY Moves for more information.
