before your move 2 - Things to Do Before You Move

We are continuing our series of articles designed to provide you with recommendations of tasks you should consider before you move. We’ve previously discussed the importance of measuring your new residence, getting rid of items you no longer use or need, making a plan for items that cannot be moved by a full service moving company, and carefully selecting your moving company. Today, we will discuss two more tips to help you prepare for your move.

Make an Inventory of Items You Will Be Taking with You

It is helpful to make an inventory of items you plan to take with you when you move. Not only does this help ensure your movers and packers don’t miss anything, but you will be thankful for your inventory list when it’s time to unpack. Your inventory can be as fancy as a spreadsheet on your laptop or tablet, or as simple as a handwritten list.

Prep the Area Before Your Movers and Packers Arrive

One way to ensure your move is as efficient as possible is to prep the area before your movers and packers arrive. Try to place items that will not be packed or moved by your moving company in a separate area. Keep floors and hallways as clear as possible. Set up a separate area for your children and pets so they don’t accidently get hurt while your full service movers are working.
