Moving Checklist

Apr 14th 2023

Moving can be a stressful process, but with proper planning and organisation, it can be a smooth transition. Here’s a checklist to help you keep track of everything you need to do before, during and after the move:

Before the move:

  • Create a moving folder to keep all your moving-related documents and notes organised
  • Make a detailed plan for your move, including timelines, budgets and schedules
  • Declutter and donate or sell items you no longer need or use
  • Hire a reputable removal company
  • Arrange for any necessary storage facilities
  • Notify important parties of your change of address, including utility companies, banks, insurance providers and any other service providers
  • Arrange for forwarding of your mail
  • Request time off work or school for the move day
  • Prepare a packing plan and start packing non-essential items
  • Arrange for any necessary services, such as cleaning, pet care or storage

On moving day:

  • Double-check that everything is packed and labelled correctly before the movers arrive
  • Ensure that your old home is cleaned and all utilities are disconnected
  • Keep important documents and valuable items with you during the move
  • Do a final walk through of your old home to ensure nothing is left behind

After the move:

  • Unpack and organise your belongings in your new home
  • Reconnect utilities and set up any necessary services
  • Update your address with any organisations that need it
  • Connect utilities and services in your new home
  • Explore your new neighborhood and get to know your new community

By following this checklist, you can stay organised and reduce stress during your move.
