Planning on moving soon? Do you know how your moving day is going to work? If not, you are most likely very stressed and scared of being under-prepared. In the days leading up to moving day that stress is only going to continue to build. This is why we have put together your essential guide for moving day. Are you ready to learn how moving day works so you can be prepared for your relocation? At Cheapest Removalists we have got your back. With over ten years in the removals business, we know exactly what needs to be done to ensure your moving day is a success. Here is your essential guide for moving day:
Create a moving checklist and stick to it!
First thing’s first! Get a pen and paper, or use your phone or computer to write out every task that needs to be taken care of in the lead up to your move. Initially, the order in which you organise the tasks does not really matter; however, task customisation should be your next goal. Here you should break down your list into very specific tasks. For example, ‘packing’ could be broken down into ‘pack clothes’, ‘pack kitchen’, etc. Now you can prioritise your specific list of tasks in order of high priority and urgency to low urgency. If you are tech savvy, you may like to download a moving app for your phone.
What to do on moving day
It will creep up quickly on you, so you’d better have followed your moving checklist! The day is here, moving day! While you will already have your comprehensive moving day checklist to follow, there are a few extra things that you need to do on moving day. These include:
Setting an alarm – Even if your removalists aren’t arriving until later in the day, we recommend setting an alarm and waking up early. This way you’ll have plenty of time to get prepared for the moving experts.
Triple-check your home– Have you checked that every item has been safely packed and moved from your old home? Are you sure? Check again! Once the removalists have packed everything into the truck, walk through every room in your house, checking that nothing has been left behind. For peace of mind, it’s worth doing it at least twice!
Put safety first– This should be obvious, but often amid the hustle and bustle of moving it can be forgotten. Make safety your priority to ensure that everyone involved in moving day is protected. This includes yourself, children, and pets!
Hold onto your valuables– For safety, privacy, convenience, and your own peace of mind, you should consider keeping your valuables with you on moving day. Valuables might include important documents, cash, credit cards, medication, and jewellery.
