Make a moving checklist!
At Shivam Packers and Movers, we think that the best way to make a big move look a lot less scary is to simplify the process by keeping paperwork up to date, keeping track of costs, and putting everything that needs to be done on an easy-to-follow checklist. With this organised plan, you’ll be able to keep your cool while moving.
3–4 Months Before Moving
Sort and get rid of clutter: Go through each room and sort your stuff into four piles: Keep, Sell, Donate, and Throw Away.
Moving is a good time to get rid of things you don’t need. You may have been meaning to clean out a storage room or an attic for a while. If you get rid of things you don’t need before you move, you can save money on moving and start fresh in your new home. Think about the things you want to keep and decide if you need to pack them carefully because they are fragile or if you want to get moving insurance for them.
Do your research: Once you have a good idea of the things you’ll be taking with you on your big move, start looking into professional packers and movers in your area. Shivam Packers and Movers is a trusted moving company that has been in business for over 20 years. We are happy to give you a FREE MOVING QUOTE for your move based on how far you are moving and how many and what kinds of things you are moving.
Create a Moving Folder: Make a document or keep a folder with all of the important papers for your move, such as information about the packers and movers and each item being moved. Keep a paper file, a digital file, a cloud file, or both! It’s a good idea to make a list of the things you’re taking with you when you move. Try to keep track of these things “per room.”
Also, you’ll want to make sure you have all the paperwork you need from your child’s school(s), the right doctors, etc.
1-2 Months Before You Move
