Your home moving to-do list

A MONTH BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Reserve a moving company for your move as soon as you know you are moving.

  • Visit your local store to purchase moving boxes and necessary packing supplies.

  • Start to clean out closets, the garage, and attic.

  • Host a garage sale or donate your unwanted things to charity.

  • Arrange to transfer school records.

  • Get change of address cards from your local post office or change your address online.

  • Notify magazines, charge accounts, insurance companies, clubs, and all other organizations of your change of address.

  • If possible, get owner’s manuals for appliances in your new home.

ONE TO TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Make a “survival closet” of things you will need for the final clean-up and include snacks for the last day.

  • If you decide to pack yourself, label all moving boxes as you pack. Write the destination room on the top and sides of each moving box to ensure it gets to the right place in your new home.

  • Schedule disconnects for utilities such as gas, electric, water and the telephone. If you have a landline, do not disconnect it until after your move. Arrange for refunds that are due, and schedule connections for your new residence.

  • Cancel newspapers, Internet, cable TV, security, pest control, cleaning help, lawn maintenance, and any other services you receive.

THE WEEK OF THE MOVE

  • Mail in your change of address forms.

  • Clean the stove and finish up any last minute cleaning before move day.

  • Finish up packing and be sure all items are boxed and ready to go prior to the movers’ arrival.

THE DAY BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Clean the refrigerator, then defrost and dry.

  • Get enough cash to tide you over. Cash comes in handy if you need to order pizza during your move, or dinner in your new place!

  • Say goodbye to your neighbors!

DAY OF THE MOVE

  • Pack your suitcase and day of the move box with all necessary essentials to get you through the next few days in case you don’t get to unpacking right away.

  • Be sure you’re present when the movers arrive so you can walk them through the home and indicate what you need moved or anything in particular they should be aware of.

  • Once all belongings are loaded onto the moving truck, be sure to do one more walkthrough and lock all windows and outside doors, in addition to checking all lights and your thermostat are off before heading to your new home.

Business Moving Checklist

A MONTH BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Reserve a moving company for your move as soon as you know your business is moving.

  • Visit your local store to purchase moving boxes and necessary packing supplies.

  • Start to clean out closets, extra meeting rooms and file cabinets.

  • Host a community sale or donate the unneeded items to charity.

  • Get change of address cards from your local post office.

  • Notify your building owner, clients, magazines, charge accounts and all other organizations of your change of address.

  • This may be a great opportunity to update software or technology.

ONE TO TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Label moving boxes according to person and/or item. Once the boxes are moved, this will be helpful when reorganizing.

  • Cancel newspapers, security, cleaning help, lawn and/or indoor maintenance and any other services you receive.

  • Devise a floor plan of the cubicles in your office and the new floor layout.

THE WEEK OF THE MOVE

  • Encourage employees to clean out their spaces.

  • Unplug copiers, computers, printers and any other electronic items.

THE DAY BEFORE THE MOVE

  • Conduct a pre-move conference with managers.

  • Let all employees know their roles and responsibilities for the move.

  • Limit employee participation on move day.
