Moving Checklist – What To Do Before You Move

by | Nov 24, 2021 | Features

Moving to a new home can be a complicated and stressful process, but if one breaks it down into several steps and has plenty of time to plan, it can go smoothly. When thinking of a schedule one should consider time frames of eight, six, four, two, and one week ahead of the moving day. There are certain activities that one can do in each of these time periods that take advantage of the lead up time. At eight weeks out, one is focusing on pre-planning, research and top-level organization. At one week one is focused on packing, closing out residence, cleaning. One should also not forget the days after moving to settle into the house and neighborhood.

Key Takeaways:

  • 8 weeks before you move, make sure that you print out your moving checklist and also organize all of your documents.
  • 6 weeks before you move start to collect free moving boxes and make sure to start labeling them as well.
  • 4 weeks before you move, pick out a moving company and get moving insurance to protect your items.

“Your move into a new home will go more smoothly if you start the planning process two months ahead of time.”
