Your Moving Checklist

When it comes to moving, staying organized is of utmost importance. Moving has a reputation for causing stress, but if you follow a strategic timeline, hire Santa Cruz Movers, and prepare thoroughly, it can actually be quite seamless.

A Month or Two Ahead of the Move

Start sorting through your personal belongings. Moving is a prime occasion to purge items that are no longer useful. Prevent the need to sift through these unneeded items after the move.

Hire your movers. We suggest contacting Santa Cruz Movers as far in advance as possible for the most competitive pricing, greatest availability, and our unmatched service on your moving day.

Schedule your utilities and other services for cancellation. Notify your trash and recycling service, internet provider, electric company, gas and/or propane supplier, and other utility services of your exact moving date. Give them your new address and ensure that your services will be canceled on the scheduled day.

Evaluate your furniture. Assess whether certain items are oversized or too compact for your new home and keep those that will work well. Take the time to decide whether or not to move all indoor and outdoor furniture.

Change your address. Your address should be changed with subscription and delivery services, banks, employers, accountants, USPS, educators, dental and medical providers, and creditors. Don’t forget to inform the Social Security Administration, tell your family and friends, and change the address on your voter registration as well.

Take time off. Mark your moving date on both your personal and business calendars, reserving the day (or even a few days) exclusively for the move. Plan for the care of pets and young children so that you can dedicate your undivided attention to the task when the day arrives.

Start the packing process. 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.

Iron out the details. Take a moment to consider if your movers will need a parking permit at your current or new residence. Ensure you have all the necessary packing supplies. Take stock of any perishable food in the freezer that should be consumed before the move. Take a walkthrough of your home and make note of these minor, but important details.

Notify the proper businesses or people. If you’re a renter, make sure you’re within the agreed-upon notification period and speak with your landlord. If you own a home and have an HOA, reach out to inform them.

The Week of the Move

Pack the rest of your things. As previously stated, if you hired us to pack your home, you can skip this step – otherwise, it’s time to wrap up packing. Choose a location for everything you’ll need first.

Confirm utility and internet set-up. Contact your internet provider and utility companies to avoid potential service disruptions. Create a list of all your scheduled appointments.

Get your old home in tip-top shape. 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.

Confirm your move. Place a confirmation call to Santa Cruz Movers to double-check specific details, confirm the on-schedule status of your move, and address any last-minute questions.

Notify your neighbors. It’s advisable to inform your neighbors if your move might cause any inconvenience to them or require the relocation of their vehicles.

The Day Before the Move

Prepare for the big day. Review details like where you’ll need to be during each step of the move, what you’ll eat, what time you need to be ready to start, and what time your movers will arrive. Make sure your car is filled with gas.

The Day of the Move

Look after yourself. Staying hydrated and fueled throughout the day can help you maintain your momentum. Keep snacks and beverages on hand for any guests or family members.

Return your keys. Return the keys to your landlord if you were a renter. Arrange for a hand-off to the real estate agent or new owner if you were a homeowner.

Oversee everything. Conduct a thorough walkthrough of your home to ensure nothing has been overlooked, remain available to address any questions from the movers, and stow personal items in your own vehicle to avoid having to track them down later.

Check and lock your old place. Verify that every light is turned off, every window is shut, every room is empty, and every lock is secured as you leave.

Settle in and savor the moment! Following your successful move, it’s the perfect time to embrace your new surroundings. Decorate, rejoice, and fall in love with your new space!
