Your Guide to Move.org’s Moving Grants

Moving grant timeline

Before your move

During your move

  • Take notes on every interaction with your mover.
  • Take photos of your packing process, moving day, and the delivery of your belongings.

After your move

More details

Set up your bank transfer

To make sure we can send your payment quickly, we need two things from you before your move:

  • A completed W-9 form (scan or snap a photo with your phone)
  • Bank transfer details: A voided check OR your ACH details on your bank’s official letterhead

If you prefer to receive a check in the mail, just let us know. We’ll send a check to the address on your W-9.

Take notes

To help us understand your moving experience, please save the following communications with your moving company:

  • Emails. (To save emails in Gmail, go to File > Print > Destination > Save as PDF.)
  • Paperwork and forms. (Scan or snap photos with your smartphone and email them to movinggrants@move.org.)
  • Phone calls. (Please jot down a summary of each call with your mover and email your notes to movinggrants@move.org.)

Take Photos

Please take photos with your smartphone to document the move process. Use photos to document the packing stage, interactions with the actual movers, the moving truck or container arriving/departing, and so forth. See the UPack review for examples.

Here are some best practices for taking photos:

  • Focus on one subject. Don’t try to show the entire moving process in one photo. Instead, keep it simple.
  • Use empty space. It’s okay if up to two-thirds of your photo is empty space—that’ll emphasize what your photo is focusing on.
  • Balance your shot using gridlines. Your camera app has gridlines that can help you follow the rule of thirds.

Prepare for post-move survey

After your move is done, we’ll ask you detailed questions about your experience. Check out the full post-move survey questions for your car shipment, truck rental, container move, or full-service van line move.

These are the categories our questions cover:

  • Timelines
  • Packing process
  • Pricing
  • Coverage/insurance
  • Customer service
