The night before a big move you tend to be restless. You can’t help but feel you must be forgetting something. Here are a few things you need to include on your moving checklist to make sure you’ll wake up fresh and ready for moving day.
1. Check to make sure you have all the important documents
Documents like a passport (if needed), directions, maps, credit cards, bank cards, cash, new keys, rental agreement (if needed), etc. You should always keep your important documents with you instead of it being in the moving truck.
2. Clearly mark and set aside items you don’t want to be loaded
Marking “do not load boxes” clearly will help the moving company know what to load and what not to.
3. Packing special items for kids
Help the kids pack a box of things they would want as soon as you arrive at your new home. Make sure that this box is either in your vehicle or easy to unpack from the moving truck.
4. Check-in with the moving company
To ensure your moving day goes smooth make sure your moving company has everything covered you expect them too. Make sure everyone is on the same page.
5. Pack an Essentials Box
Packing out your boxes can take a while so It’s important to have a box of stuff you’ll need for the first night or two in your new home. Things like your coffee maker, coffee, a cup or 2, and maybe some cleaning supplies. Also, make sure to pack some clothes and toiletries for 2 days.
6. Check If Your Home Is Ready for the Move
Do another walkthrough of the entire house to make sure everything is packed, every window and door is secure and the garbage is taken out. Make sure you leave all the keys on the kitchen counter for the new tenants.
