It’s that time of year again – the rush to pack and move everything before the big day arrives. But before you start hauling boxes and suitcases around, there are a few things you need to do first. In this article, we’ll outline the steps you need to take on your moving day in order to get everything done as smoothly as possible!
Before you start packing, it’s important to get organized. Plan your route, make a list of what needs to be moved, and designate a driver.
One of the first things you should do on your moving day is to gather all of your belongings. If you have smaller items that can be packed in boxes or bags, start putting these away while you plan your route. You can even organize a self-pack moving container to quickly pack everything in and easily transport it to your new house instead of trying to deliver it yourself! Once everything is put away, take a moment to organize the space by labeling boxes with corresponding room names or item numbers.
This will make it much easier to find what you’re looking for when you’re unpacking later.
If you’re planning to hire movers to move your house, make sure to give them an accurate list of what needs to be moved and when. They’ll also need to know where the packing and loading area will be. And finally, designate a driver so everyone knows where they are and what they are supposed to do.
Create a packing list
On your moving day, you will want to create a packing list that includes the following:
• Boxes and packing materials,
• Bed sheets, towels, and pillows,
• Curtains or drapes,
• Clothing and shoes,
• Household goods,
• Anything else that you think you may need while moving.
Make sure you have all the necessary documents
If you’re moving within the United States, you’ll need a driver’s license, vehicle title, proof of insurance, and registration. If you’re moving outside of the U.S., make sure to bring your passport and visa.
You may also want to pack some important documents in a safe place: your social security card, your birth certificate, proof of residency (a lease, bills from your landlord), and any other important papers relating to your move.
Gather any sensitive items
If you are packing your home for moving day, make sure to gather any sensitive items before you leave. This includes important documents, photographs, and sentimental objects. Keep these items in a safe place until you’re ready to move.
Estimate how much furniture and other belongings you’ll need to pack
Assuming you’re moving within the same city, you’ll need to estimate how many boxes, bags, and crates you’ll need to pack your belongings. It’s also a good idea to make an inventory of what you currently have so you can be sure to pack everything you need.
Rent or buy a storage unit
If you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering what to do on your moving day. You may rent a storage unit or buy one. Here’s a look at each option.
Put everything in storage!
The first thing to do on a moving day is to put everything in storage. This includes boxes, furniture, and any other items you will need to move. This will help to make the process go much more smoothly.
Take care of any last-minute details before you leave
If you’re packing for a move, there are a few things you need to do before you leave. First, check that your moving truck is packed and ready to go. Make sure all your possessions are placed appropriately in the truck and on the trailer. If you have pets, make sure they are secured in their crates or carriers. Finally, make sure you have all your paperwork in order-you’ll need it if you have to get a moving truckload of boxes returned to the store.
