Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, moving day is sure to be both exciting and stressful. Cut down on the chaos with a moving checklist that gets you organized, eliminates surprises and keeps everything moving along smoothly.
- Don’t pack what you don’t need – Getting rid of unnecessary items will help make the packing and unpacking process smoother. Rather than waste time making these decisions on moving day, do it ahead of time and give away or sell what you don’t want.
- Moving announcements – Give friends and family your new address right away. Better yet, have a housewarming party to follow up and invite them all to see your new home.
- Forward medical records – Contact important parties, like doctors’ offices, directly to let them know they will need to forward your records to a new location. Continue reading
We have several team members who have moved recently, and wanted to get their moving tips and ideas for making the process go smoother. We also asked them to show us their moving announcements! Here are their best moving tips.

We’re profiling team members at Pear Tree Greetings to show you which unique Christmas card ideas they chose and how they personalized them.
About Dani: I recently moved into a new house with my fiance, Scott, and our 5-month old puppy, Lola. We are excited to share the news of this new step in our lives with family and friends.
Card she chose: Cozy House – Holiday Moving Announcement
Why did you choose this card?
I was looking for cute moving announcements that could double as Christmas cards. This one is perfect to say happy holidays from our home to yours, while giving people our new address in a welcoming way. It looks like a Christmas card, but technically I found it in our moving announcements collection.
Did you do anything special to personalize it?
Not too much! I liked the Christmas colors and wintery theme of the illustration. Other than changing the text to say ‘Happy Holidays from our home to yours’ and adding our new address, I didn’t change a thing!
