Hey there, future mover! We know that moving houses can be quite an adventure, but it doesn't have to be a stressful one. That's why we've put together this handy-dandy moving house checklist in collaboration with our expert removalists at Men That Move. They're the real deal for dependable and caring removalist companies, and they've got your back every step of the way. Moving is our business and we know all the insider tips and tricks, but the most important one is being move ready.
So, grab a cup of coffee (or your favourite beverage) and get ready to tackle your move like a pro. Let's dive right into this moving house checklist that will make your move a breeze!
Alright, let's start with the basics. Before you get all caught up in the excitement of moving, it's essential to get an estimate from Men That Move. Our estimators will give you a clear idea of what to expect in terms of costs and services. No hidden surprises, just straight-up honesty. You can even check our online calculator and not even have to speak to us to get an idea.
Let's face it, we all have some stuff that we no longer need or want to lug around. Take this opportunity to declutter and make your move lighter. Start going through your belongings and set aside items you want to donate, sell, or give away to friends. Trust us, the less stuff you have to move, the easier and more cost-effective it will be.
Ah, the dreaded packing phase. But fear not, we've got some fantastic tips to make it a breeze. Start by packing things you don't regularly use, like your fancy china or that ugly sweater your aunt gave you three Christmases ago. And here's a pro tip: clean items before packing them. It'll save you time and effort when unpacking.
Forget about cardboard and tape we are living in the future at Men That Move and we have specifically designed plastic moving boxes with lids. Pack em and stack em. Better yet we drop them at your door and collect them after you move. Our eco-friendly moving boxes are reusable and not only will make your packing better but makes the earth happy too.
Moving requires some serious planning skills, so let's get organised. A month before your move, start making a list of all the companies and organisations you need to notify about your change of address. This includes banks, credit card companies, utility providers, schools, etc. You can send them a notice or update your address online if possible.
Alright, we're getting closer to the big day. Two to three weeks before your move, start using up the food in your fridge and freezer. You don't want to waste anything or risk a melted ice cream disaster during transportation. Also, make sure to collect important documents like medical and dental records, identification papers, and any other paperwork you'll need in your new home.
The countdown begins! One week before your move, it's time to double-check everything. Confirm the disconnection of utilities at your old home, like gas, electricity, water, telephone, and internet. You don't want to end up paying bills for a place you no longer live in. Oh, and make arrangements for your favourite charity to pick up any items you want to donate. Sharing is caring, after all!
It's the big day, and the excitement is building up. Men That Move will be there to handle the heavy lifting, but there are a few things you can do to make the process smoother. Keep a box handy with essential items like phone chargers, snacks, toilet paper, a torch, and any other must-haves. Label it "Open First" so you can easily find those necessities amidst the chaos. While Men That Move takes care of transporting your belongings, there are a few items you'll want to keep close to you. These include important documents, valuables, chargers, keys and your sanity!
So, take a deep breath, put on some energetic music, and get ready to make your move. Men That Move is here to make the process smooth, efficient, and dare we say, enjoyable. Good luck on your new adventure, and may your new home be filled with happiness, laughter, and unforgettable memories!
