Moving Checklist

Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming process, but with proper planning and organization, it can also be an exciting and smooth transition. Here is a comprehensive moving checklist to help you stay on track and ensure that you don’t forget anything important:

  • Create a moving binder or folder to keep all your moving-related documents and receipts organised.
  • Take an inventory of your belongings and decide what you want to take with you and what you want to sell, donate, or discard.
  • Notify your landlord (if you're renting) or the real estate agent (if you're selling) about your move-out date.
  • Begin buying packing materials, such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper.
  • Schedule your move with our moving company.
  • Start packing non-essential items that you won't need until after the move.
  • Notify your utility companies, internet provider, and other service providers about your move and arrange for disconnection or transfer of services.
  • Notify your bank, credit card companies, and other financial institutions about your change of address.
  • If you are packing your own property, then begin packing items that you won't need until after the move, such as books, off-season clothes, and decorative items.
  • Notify your insurance company about your move and update your policy if necessary.
  • Confirm your moving date and time with our moving company
  • Notify your friends, family, and other important contacts about your change of address.
  • Pack a suitcase or box with essential items you'll need immediately after the move, such as toiletries, a change of clothes, and important documents.
  • Confirm the details of your move with your moving company or rental truck provider.
  • Complete any necessary paperwork for your new home, such as rental agreements or mortgage documents.
  • Make arrangements for the care of pets or plants during the move
  1. On moving day:
  • Double-check that all boxes and items are labeled correctly and accounted for.
  • Review the inventory list with our moving company.
  • Take photos of your old home before leaving for your records.
  • Lock all doors and windows and turn off all lights and appliances.

Following this checklist should help ensure that your move goes as smoothly as possible. Remember to stay organized, stay in touch with your moving company or rental truck provider, and don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it.
