Your Moving Checklist

When it comes to a move, the most important factor is staying organized. Moving is notorious for its stress-inducing nature, but if you follow a strategic timeline, enlist the expertise of Santa Cruz Movers, and thoroughly prepare, it can be a remarkably smooth experience.

A Month or Two Ahead of the Move

Hire your movers. For the best pricing and availability, we recommend calling Santa Cruz Movers as soon as possible so we can guarantee our services for your moving day.

Take time off. Allocate some time on your personal and work calendars to devote to the upcoming move. To give your move all the attention it requires, make care arrangements for young kids or pets.

Begin packing your belongings. Unless you’re using Santa Cruz Movers’ packing services, you should start packing non-essentials like off-season apparel and decor to get them out of the way.

Inform relevant businesses or individuals. If you’re a tenant, ensure you’re within the mutually agreed-upon notice timeframe and reach out to your landlord accordingly. In the case of homeowners with an HOA, make contact to tell them about your move.

Finalize the specifics. Assess whether or not your movers will need a parking permit at your new or old address. Take stock of any perishable food in the freezer that should be consumed before the move. Do you have everything you need for the move? Thinking about these details will be beneficial in the coming weeks.

Evaluate your furniture. Consider whether some pieces are too big or too small for your new space and plan to keep the ones that work best. Make a decision about every piece of indoor and outdoor furniture.

Change your address. Your address needs to be changed with employers, delivery and subscription services, creditors, accountants, medical and dental providers, banks, educators, and USPS. Remember to notify the DMV and Social Security Administration, tell your family and friends, and change the address on your voter registration.

Schedule your utilities and other services for cancellation. Call your internet service, trash and recycling service, propane and/or gas company, electric company, and other utility services to inform them of your move date, confirm that your service will be discontinued on the right day, and provide them with your updated address.

Begin sorting through your possessions. Moving presents an ideal opportunity to declutter and part with items you no longer need. Avoid the hassle of dealing with unnecessary belongings post-move.

The Week of the Move

Inform your neighbors. If your move has the potential to inconvenience your neighbors or require them to relocate their vehicles, it’s considerate to inform them in advance.

Pack any remaining items. Unless you’re utilizing our packing service, it’s time to commence packing the remaining rooms in your house. Set aside a dedicated space for items you’ll need immediately.

Confirm the move. Contact Santa Cruz Movers to confirm details about when your movers will arrive and to confirm that you are still set to move on time.

Get your old home sparkling clean. Whether you take charge of the cleaning or enlist a professional house cleaner, this step will come in handy once the demanding move concludes and you start unpacking at your new home.

Verify internet and utility set-up. Call your utility companies and internet provider to avoid unexpected service interruptions. Make a list of all of your appointments.

The Day Before the Move

Prepare for the big day. Think through details such as where you’ll need to be at each stage of the move, when you’ll need to be ready to start, when your movers will arrive, and what you’ll eat. Ensure your vehicle has ample fuel to be ready for the upcoming journey.

The Day of the Move

Supervise the process. Walk through your property to ensure that nothing was overlooked, make yourself accessible to answer any questions the movers may have, and place any personal belongings in your own vehicle so you don’t have to look for them later.

Check and secure your former home. Prior to departure, double-check that all lights are switched off, all windows are closed, every room is empty, and all locks are properly engaged.

Return your keys. If you were a renter, return the keys to your landlord. If you were a homeowner, arrange for a hand-off to the real estate agent or new owner.

Prioritize self-care. Staying hydrated and fed throughout the day will keep your own momentum up. Keep snacks and beverages on hand for any guests or family members.

Get settled in and ENJOY! After a job well done, it’s time to make yourself at home. Decorate, celebrate, and enjoy your new home!
