We are about to move our website to a new domain name, blue-widgets.com to bluewidgets.com

My question is, is there a set procedure out there that is step by step to follow? I know we need to place a 301 re-direct and update the web master tools. Anybody have exact instructions on what needs to be updated in webmaster tools?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a thread from a while ago. It's still accurate as far as I know. Moving to a New Domain - Official Advice from Google [webmasterworld.com]
