It’s one of the most stressful days of your life. The last thing you want to deal with is an unorganised or rushed moving day that leaves you exhausted and frazzled. But it doesn’t have to be like that! You can make moving day a breeze by being prepared, organised, and strategic from start to finish. The best way to ensure you have a smooth moving day is by thinking ahead and planning out each step of the process well in advance.
We understand this sounds like a lot of work for what is likely a rushed day for you but trust us - it will be worth it!
The first thing you must do when preparing for your moving day is to take an inventory of all your belongings. This will help you figure out what you must move and what will go into your moving inventory. It’s best to do this process with the help of the other household members who are also moving. This way, each person can go through their belongings and write down where each item is currently located. This will help you collectively determine what will go into each box and what needs to be donated or thrown away.
Having a visual representation of what you have will also help when it comes to estimating the cost of your move. If you are moving by yourself, you can also use apps or websites to help you keep track of what belongs to whom and what’s in each box, etc.
The next thing you’ll want to do is create an organised moving plan. This will help you understand how long each part of the moving process will take, which will help you better plan your day. You can break down the move into sections, such as packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking. You can even assign each section a person (or a team) to help keep things on track. For example, if you have to pack boxes for an upcoming move, you can break down the process into these sections:
The next step in preparing for your moving day is creating a calendar and helper list. This will help you stay on track and avoid being so stressed out that you miss something important.
You may want to include the following items on your calendar:
When it comes to your helper list, make sure you include all the people helping you out on moving day. This may include family members, friends, or a moving company. You can either make a physical list or create a checklist in your calendar. We recommend doing both, so you don’t forget anything.
You may not be able to control the weather, but you can control how prepared you are for the move. The best way to ensure your move is as smooth as possible is to start planning your moving day well in advance.
