2 Weeks before Moving Day
Find a storage facility in Anderson / Redding, CA. You might want to choose a climate-controlled storage center for better protection of your belongings from extreme temperatures, humidity, dust and bugs.
Contact the post office and ask to have your mail redirected starting on your moving date. Inform any other people who might need to about changing addresses.
It’s never too early to start packing. Buy some boxes<, both big and small, and start packing the things you use least. Start making arrangements for someone to take care of your kids and/or pets on the day of the move.
