The best way to organise an upcoming residential or commercial relocation is to draft a well-planned moving checklist. If you have never created a removal to do list, keep reading because we have posted one which you can use as a base for yours.
- 60 days prior of the move: If you are a tenant you should contact your landlord and notify him about your intention of leaving. On the other hand if you are a property owner you should get in touch with your realtor and discuss whether it is better to sell or rent out your property.
- 45 days prior of the move: Contact your utility providers and notify them that you are moving and you want to either cease using their services or transfer them to your new address. Also give a call to your doctor and ask him to send you all your medical records. If you are a pet own you should also collect all the medical documents of your pet from his veterinarian.
- 30 days prior of the move: Give us a call and book our services. We may work with a flexible schedule but the sooner you contact us the better. Also know that you can purchase from us the packing supplies that you will need to prepare your belongings for the move.
- 20 days prior of the move: Pack all your non-essential belongings such as out of season clothes, books, magazines, decorative items and so. Also stop buying food and start eating the one that you already have in your household. If you are facing a commercial relocation, start the packing stage by preparing all the assets that you have in stock.
- 10 days prior of the move: Disassemble all your furniture with the exception of your beds and dining room set (You can dismantle them during the day of your move).
- 3 days prior of the move: Pack the remainder of your belongings. Also set aside your personal documents and valuable and keep them with you at all times. Set in one corner all the items that you won’t be taking with you and throw away the ones that are broken or unusable, the others you should donate to an organisation of your choosing.
D day: Free your driveway to give to the movers an easy access to your property. Contact you landlord and have him come and pick the keys. Last but not least conduct a final checkup to make sure that you haven’t forgotten something behind.
