Moving Day Checklist

Day of the Move

  • Make sure everything is completely packed before your friends or movers show up to help you move.

    One of the hardest things to do is to move while packing.

  • Appoint one person in charge.

    Jobs become complicated when hired to move and more than one person is telling everyone where things go.

  • Draw a Floor Plan.

    To prevent moving things twice and avoiding confusion have an idea in advance of where you want things to go.

  • Remember to defrost your refrigerator and freezer at least a day before moving and wipe up any liquid.

  • Arrange for a charity organization to come pick up the items you don’t want at least a week or two before moving instead of leaving items by the dumpster at your current residence as well as at your new residence.

  • Try to keep children and pets out of the way.

  • Reserve a Parking Space for the Moving Truck.

  • Clear Walkways.

  • Disassemble all furniture.

    Disassemble all furniture - If you are unable to do so, please include this in your moving request so that the moving crew brings all necessary tools to complete the job.
