Why a Moving Checklist is Your Best Friend

A moving checklist is essentially your roadmap to a successful move. It helps you stay organized, ensures you don’t forget any crucial steps, and minimizes last-minute scrambling. Let’s break down how to create a checklist that suits your unique move.

Creating Your Personalised Moving Checklist

8-12 Weeks Before:

  • Research: If you haven’t decided yet, explore our comprehensive guide on pre-move planning to get started.
  • Declutter: Tackle house clearance early. Sell, donate, or dispose of items you won’t need in your new home.
  • Set a Budget: Estimate moving costs, including packing services if needed.
  • Choose Your Moving Date: This is key for coordinating everything else.

6-8 Weeks Before:

  • Book Your Movers: Research house removals or man and van services if you need professional help.
  • Notify Important Parties: Inform your landlord, utility companies, banks, etc., about your change of address.
  • Order Packing Supplies: Boxes, tape, bubble wrap – you’ll need it all!

4-6 Weeks Before:

  • Start Packing: Begin with non-essential items. Label boxes clearly by room.
  • Confirm Travel Arrangements: Book flights, hotels, or any other travel needs.
  • Change Your Address: Update your address with the post office and other relevant services.

2 Weeks Before:

  • Finalise Packing: Make sure everything is packed except essentials for the last few days.
  • Confirm Moving Details: Double-check times and logistics with your moving company or helpers.
  • Defrost Your Fridge/Freezer: Empty, clean, and defrost your refrigerator and freezer.
  • Pack an Essentials Box: Include items like toiletries, medications, a change of clothes, and important documents.

Moving Day:

  • Supervise Loading: If using movers, guide them through your home.
  • Do a Final Walk-Through: Check every room and closet to ensure nothing is left behind.
  • Lock Up: Secure all windows and doors before leaving.
 

Remember: Flexibility is key! Unexpected things can happen, so be prepared to adjust your checklist as needed.
