Moving Checklist – Six To Eight Weeks Before Moving Day
Working with the mover :
- Call your Sky Van Lines agent. Set a date for the agent to visually survey your home and prepare a moving estimate.
- If your company is paying for your move, refer to their moving policy to determine the services the mover will be authorized to perform.
- Do you want to do any of the packing — or will you have it done by our experienced packers? Your agent at Sky Van Lines will be happy to discuss packing services with you. or just go to our on lines store to buy boxes and moving supply

- Sign the Estimate/Order for Service after you are sure you have a clear understanding of each section. If you have any questions, ask your Sky van lines agent to explain.
