Moving Checklist

Do you dread the upcoming days of packing up your entire house and loading it into a truck? Moving can be stressful and chaotic, but with some thorough planning and preparation there’s no reason why it can’t be an enjoyable experience.

Creating a detailed moving checklist can help you prioritize tasks, avoid common pitfalls, stay organized throughout the process, and ensure nothing is forgotten when it comes time to start unloading your belongings.

We’ll provide an overview of what should go into a comprehensive moving checklist so that you won’t miss any steps along the way!

  • Plan ahead and start packing early. Give your landlord or property management company the required notice in writing.
  • Make sure you have all the necessary supplies, including boxes, tape, and markers.
  • Label all your boxes with what room they belong in and what is inside them.
  • Make a list of important items you will need right after you move, such as toiletry items, bedding, and kitchen supplies.
  • Use color-coded stickers to indicate which items are fragile and use bubble wrap or newspapers to keep them safe.
  • Pack a suitcase or bag with your essentials (clothes and toiletries) for the first few days in your new home.
  • Make a list of important items you will need during the move, such as your passport, driver’s license, and medications.
  • Empty out your refrigerator and freezer so that nothing spoils during the move.
  • Shut off all utilities (electricity, water, gas)
  • Have a garage sale or donate unwanted belongings to charity to lighten your load.
