Jon Sorber, president of Two Men and a Truck, suggests the planning for a move be done 2 to 3 months ahead. By doing so you'll have time enough to locate a mover or plan the move on your own. You'll also have a chance to start collecting boxes for pre-packing of seldom used items. 
Once your new home has been connected for your utilities you can disconnect the ones at the old house to assure you won't be left out in the cold and dark of night.  If using home business land lines at both places keep them activated at both places to ease communication during the move.  The double service amount is a good bargain for peace of mind you'll get not to mention possible lost business. 
When you're ready to pack remember to put like items in together, for example:  all dishes, all books, all bathroom items and then clearly and descriptively label each box.  Use specially designed boxes for breakable items and pack plates on their sides not flat on top of one another.  Use newspaper and packing supplies freely to prevent breakage during the move. 
Avoid us of garbage bags for packing.  They may work well for carrying trash to the street, but they don't offer much support during a move as they are prone to split open causing a real mess!
Packing for a move is overwhelming and stressful, but with proper time to prepare and plan this momentous day can go much more smoothly.  If you really want to smooth out the process call a Professional Organizer to help manage the move.  They can even bring in a team of people on move day to get your new home set up and functional by the end of the day leaving you with a few boxes of non-essentials to deal with when you have more time or you can hire them to continue helping you to organize your new surroundings in the days following the move.
