organizing a move on your own - what was your timeline like?

i need to relocate my family (husband, wife, toddler, baby on the way, and dog) to switzerland next year. other than paying for some expenses, it looks like the employer will be doing nothing in the way of helping to organize the move.

how much time should i set aside for this project? it feels too early to start now. but i also don't want a panic rushed feeling. i also want to factor in the various stages of pregnancy and post partum i will be going through and whether i'll have the time or energy to be doing various things at that time.

i wish this was like wedding planning where there were checklist timelines telling you exactly what to do when!

i was thinking a good summer plan would be to start getting rid of our stuff and downsizing so that i can have a garage sale late august. i'm also making a list of big ticket items that i want to buy in the u.s. before the 6 month period pre-move so that we don't have to pay taxes on them. for example car seats, strollers, and the like.

any other ideas would be greatly appreciated !
