handwritten moving checklist

You've been planning your move for months and you've finally closed on your new home and sold your old one. As moving day is fast approaching, you'll want to start making preparations for the day. One of the best ways of doing this is by making a comprehensive moving checklist.

The last day in your old home can be a blur, but by keeping an organized list, you can feel rest assured that your move will be completed to perfection. Below, we'll go over a quick rundown of all the things you should include on your moving day checklist.

#1 Pack Any Last Minute Items

You can't pack everything days ahead of a move. Things like toiletries, clothing, and personal items will need to be packed the morning of your move. Make sure that you leave room in your bags for these items so that you'll be able to use them the day of and during transportation.

#2 Have Food and Water Ready

There's nothing worse than being hungry and thirsty on moving day. Try to prepare snacks ahead of time so that you don't find yourself exhausted in the middle of the day. Simple meals like PB&J sandwiches can go a long way.

#3 Prepare Your Car for Personal Transportation

If you're hiring long distance movers and are relocating a considerable distance away, you'll need to make sure that your car is stocked for the journey. Have a change of clothes or two handy, lots of snacks and water, phone chargers, and any other personal items you might need.

#4 Meet Your Movers and Stick Around

Once your residential movers arrive it's go time! Be there when they arrive and stick around to answer any last-minute questions they might have. You can also give them directions on what boxes should stay together for convenient organization.

#5 Do a Final Walkthrough and Cleaning

Once everything is fully moved out, you can start wrapping up your home. Do a final walkthrough to make sure that nothing is left behind and do some final cleaning to make sure that everything is flawless for the new owners.
