Your Moving Checklist

Organization is key while planning a move. While moving can easily get stressful, hiring Santa Cruz Movers, adhering to a well-planned timeline, and planning ahead ensure that your move goes off without a hitch.

A Month or Two Ahead of the Move

Begin sorting through your belongings. Before a move, it is best to get rid of unnecessary items. You don’t want to have to deal with any excess stuff after your relocation.

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 notify the Social Security Administration and DMV, change your address on your voter registration, and, of course, tell your friends and family.

Take a look at your furniture. Some pieces may be too large or small for your new space, while others might be just right. Decide whether or not you want to move each piece of furniture – indoors and out.

Schedule your utilities and other services for cancellation. Call your propane and/or gas company, recycling and trash service, internet service provider, electric company, and other utility services to inform them of your moving date. Make sure your services will be discontinued on the designated date and update them with your new address.

Begin packing your belongings. If you’re not making use of Santa Cruz Movers’ packing services, start by packing items like decorations, off-season clothing, and other non-essentials.

Inform relevant businesses or individuals. If you rent, check your lease for specifics on the amount of notice required and contact your landlord. If you own a home and have an HOA, reach out to inform them.

Hire your movers. To access the best availability and pricing from Santa Cruz Movers, it’s smart to provide us with as much advance notice as possible.

Think through the details. Is your freezer full of food that should be eaten before the move? Are you stocked up on moving supplies? Will the movers require a parking permit at your new or old residence? Thinking through these details will prove helpful in the weeks to come.

Take time off. Open up space in your personal and professional schedules to prioritize the move. Make care arrangements for pets and young children and ensure that the move will have your full, undivided attention.

The Week of the Move

Confirm your move. Give Santa Cruz Movers a call to clarify the details, confirm that your move is still on schedule, and ask any last-minute questions.

Verify internet and utility set-up. To steer clear of unexpected disruptions, reach out to your utility providers and internet service provider. Write down all appointment times.

Tell your neighbors. It’s a good idea to notify your neighbors if they’ll need to move their cars or if your move is expected to disrupt their lives in any way.

Pack any remaining items. Again, unless you’re taking advantage of our comprehensive packing services, you’ll want to begin packing the rest of your home. Choose a location for everything you’ll need first.

Get your old home sparkling clean. Whether you opt for a cleaning service or tackle the job yourself, this step will be invaluable when the whirlwind of the move shifts your focus (and energy) to your new home.

The Day Before the Move

Prepare for the big day. Familiarize yourself with scheduling details, including your wake-up time, meal plans, the arrival time of your movers, and your various destinations throughout the day. Verify that your car has sufficient fuel.

The Day of the Move

Return your keys. If you rented your previous residence, give the keys back to your landlord. In the case of selling your home, make arrangements to pass the keys to the new owner or their real estate agent.

Check and lock your old place. Before you leave, perform a final check to ensure that all rooms are empty, all lights are extinguished, all windows are shut, and all locks are securely fastened.

Prioritize self-care. Remember to eat and drink throughout the day to sustain your energy levels. Keep a supply of snacks and beverages on hand for your family and friends.

Oversee everything. Place personal items in your car for immediate access, be present to provide guidance to the movers, and perform a walkthrough of your home to confirm that everything is loaded.

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!
