With a task list in hand, you can create a workable timeline and can clear your schedule to make sure you don’t run out of time.
Here’s a simple checklist to use for your move.
It really pays to get started early and once you have a moving date in mind makes getting your list going easier. A couple of months beforehand is the right time to budget for your moving expenses, including hiring professional movers.
This is a good time to ask for vacation days from work if you need them and to start looking into new schools, churches and doctors if you need to.
Now is the time to start collecting boxes and going through your possessions. You can donate or throw away those things that don’t make the cut and begin packing items you won’t need before you get to your new house.
If you’re moving overseas, this is a good time to arrange for shipment of your pet and car and you should also use this time to start taking apart furniture you don’t need, storing the hardware with the item so it can be reassembled easily.
About a month before you move, arrange for hook-up of utilities in your new home and make sure you’ve returned all library books. Update your address with your bill providers and family and friends.
You should also use this time to choose and purchase moving insurance.
This is a good time to arrange babysitting or pet sitting for moving day as well as organising and packing all important documents, such as birth certificates and health information.
Map out the route to your new home at this time as well.
This last week is the time to defrost the fridge and freezer. It’s also time to double check that you haven’t left anything behind in closets, cabinets, or drawers and also places like a shed, basement or attic.
The last few days are also the best time to clean your old house. If you have access to your new home, it is a good idea to go clean it before you move in.
