Home Moving Checklist

2 weeks before moving day

Visit every room of your house and decide what you should keep and what you should be parted with.

Work out all items that need special packing material and extra insurance.

Remove perishable items that will not be part of the move.

Measure door dimensions in your new house and compare with the size of your largest items, which cannot be dismantled and make sure that everything fits.

Order packing material and other moving supplies like shrink-wraps, bubble wraps, boxes, taps etc. here.

Donate unwanted clothes or other household goods to charity organisations. We recommend the salvation army.

1 week before moving day

Start packing your most unused items.

Note down your fragile and precious items and arrange additional insurance for them. See our insurance policy here.

Label each box clearly, detailing contents and destination.

Pack items such as jewelry or files, which you will be moving by yourself to your new destination.

Inform your utility supply companies about your new address and date of move on which they should disconnect from current address and connect to new address.

Inform your local post office about your new address or fill online change of address form. It is wise to ask your neighbor to keep an eye on your mails. Check in with them after two weeks of moving if they found any mail.

Change your address online with your bank, your employer, brokerage firms, magazines and newspapers you subscribe to, health care providers etc.

Pack suitcases for everyone in your family.

Dismantle TV, bed mirrors, stereos etc.
