A Packing List For Moving Home

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 2:39 AM
Summary: Moving house can be very stressful, and it is surprising at how something as simple as a checklist can save you a lot of time, hassle and also stress!

Moving Home, a Checklist

As with most things in life, if you get yourself organized then things tend to be a lot easier and also run a lot smoother. There are many ways that we can prepare and make the transition a lot smoother, packing in advance, having a check list, getting friends and family to assist. You can even get a removal company to come in and survey your house and give you a detailed estimate of the cost of moving with a professional company. Ask them to give you a breakdown of the cost which includes the amount of space required to move your belongings as this will give you an idea of the truck required. Also getting them to estimate the amount of removal boxes you will need will give you an idea of how many to buy beforehand. This is especially useful if you do not have a lot of experience in moving.

The Checklist

Getting yourself a good checklist together of all the things you need to do before your moving day, is a great way to make sure all of those little jobs get done which can easily slip your mind.
  • Cancel Milk/Newspapers
  • Inform Creditors and Banks
  • Redirect all mail to new address 
  • Getting everything required before you need it such as boxes and tape Which rooms still require packing 
  • Turn off Electricity and Water before leaving
Cancelling the newspapers and milk delivery is easy enough but just make sure you remember to do it, so you don’t get any unwanted bills. Also contacting all of the companies who regularly send you bills, statements or other things through the post can be quite time consuming, depending on how many you need to do. With your bank, you may need to go to your local branch and fill out a change of address form. Some companies you deal with, you may be able to do this process online. If you are a car driver then you will need to change the address on your license as this also affects your insurance. Likewise, your insurance company will also have to be informed. Getting all of the material you need to pack is easy enough as well and the sooner you get this done, the sooner you can start to pack your possessions which are not going to be needed before you move.

One room at a time

A good thing to do is work out which of your rooms has the most things to pack. This will usually be the kitchen and the garage, where lots of things are stored. Then you want to start in the rooms that have the most things in them. If you can it is also advised to pack as many things as you can beforehand as this will give you less to do on the actual day of your move. Make sure you do not put too many things in the boxes and always have the heavy objects at the bottom. Wrap up any fragile objects and pack them securely in a box, so they are not going to move around at all. This should help any damage whilst they are in transit. When you have finished packing a box and have sealed it securely, take a marker pen and write the room the contents came from and a short description of the contents. This way when you move into your new house you can take the boxes to the room they are required in right away without having to open then boxes up first. Work your way through each room until everything is packed up and on the truck, ready to be unloaded at your new home. Make sure that you turn the electric and water off before you leave as well.

Home Sweet Home

When you have turned everything off and locked your front door for the last time, it is time to head towards your new home. You will need to make sure the water and electric is turned on before you get there and if you have a satellite dish you may want to get it installed the same day you move in as well. You will be able to unload the truck and take the clearly marked boxes directly to the room where they need to be unpacked; this will help to save you a lot of time and also hassle, leaving you with more time to get settled into your new home. Before you know it you will be settled in your favourite chair watching TV and feeling like you have always been there.
