Keep a Checklist Before, During, and After the Move

19Nov 2009


One of the best ways to be organized for the moving is to have a checklist. However, for first-time movers like you, having a checklist can be a time-consuming task. Well, it won't be as time-consuming as you think it is if you already know what should be included in the checklist.
 
Before Moving Checklist
 
-
   Plan everything-from packing to unpacking.
-
   Choose the exact moving date.
-
   Shop for a storage unit in case you need it.
-
   Determine which among your things will be moved with you or not.
-
   Sell the things you don't want or for faster solution, give your things away.
-
   Collect as many cartons, boxes, newspapers, and other packing materials as you can.
 
During Moving Checklist
 
-
   The floor should be clean before you move.
-
   Check if everything is already loaded on the vehicle.
-
   Double check every room for any thing left.
 
After Moving Checklist
 
-
   Consider throwing a housewarming party.
-
   Inform everyone of your new address.
-
   Start unpacking your things.
-
   Plan where will you put your furniture pieces, accessories, and other things.
-
   Decide which room will be for whom or for what.
 
These are only simple checklists before, during, and after moving. More lists are surely necessary for the real-life moving. You can ask some friends for more tips but remember that your situation will be a lot different. So, just be ready for anything by anticipating everything that might happen for the moving.
