Quick Moving Checklist

Don’t panic!

Here’s a quick reference checklist for those rushed off their feet trying to get a house move organised:

2 – 3 WEEKS IN ADVANCE

  1. Take stock of your life: clear out your wardrobe, kitchen and drawers, sell or dispose of unwanted items
  2. Book a removalist
  3. Book a cleaner
  4. Organise your packing materials – boxes, packing paper, tape, bubble wrap, porta robes
  5. Start packing non-day-to-day items
  6. Move stuff you want to keep (but don’t have space for) into storage

1 – 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE

  1. Cancel or redirect mail, subscriptions, regular deliveries
  2. Update mailing addresses – driver’s licence, car registration, banks, pet registration, electoral rolls, superfund, doctor, car insurer, ATO, credit cards
  3. Disconnect / book utilities (internet, telephone, gas, electricity)
  4. Clear out or eat up excess food in the refrigerator and freezer
  5. Book lifts for moving day
  6. Pack a little every day, label boxes

ON MOVING DAY

  1. Disassemble large items – tables, bed frames
  2. Be on hand to direct the removalists
  3. Check for left items
  4. Final read of gas, electricity and water meters
  5. Clean the premises
  6. Change the locks

  7. With proper preparation, you can minimise the number of things that might go wrong and have a smooth move. Good luck!
