Moving Day Checklist

by | Jan 24, 2017 | Features

Moving is easier with a list of tasks. Items that are not to be loaded should be marked clearly. Place children’s favorite items in a special box so they are easy to unpack. Make sure as much trash as possible and all flammable items are gone prior to moving day. Reserve a parking area for the moving truck and ensure all walkways are clear. Mark all items that require special care. Have food and drinks for movers and decide a tip ahead of time. Make sure all paperwork is accurate before the drivers leaves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Make sure your important paperwork pertaining to the move doesn’t get packed and shipped with your household goods.
  • Have the kids pack a box of their “special” items, things that they’ll want to have nearby as soon as you all arrive at your new home. Point this box out to the driver so it’s one of the first to be unloaded.
  • Eliminate as much trash as you can before moving day. Last-minute garbage will inevitably build up the day prior to and the day of loading. Try making a deal with a neighbor to use their trash container for your last-minute debris.

“Many items that are considered flammable are not going to be loaded by the driver and crew. Understand what these items are so that you are not stuck with trying to get rid of them on day of loading.”
