Your Moving Checklist

As you prepare for a move, organization is essential. Moving can be stressful for everyone involved, but planning ahead of time, committing to a well-thought-out timeline, and choosing Santa Cruz Movers will make the process go smoothly from beginning to end.

A Month or Two Ahead of the Move

Hire your movers. When you provide Santa Cruz Movers with ample notice, you’ll enjoy the highest availability and the most budget-friendly pricing for our services.

Start organizing your belongings. The perfect time to eliminate unneeded items is prior to the move. Save yourself the trouble of dealing with unwanted items after the relocation.

Notify the proper businesses or people. If you rent, check your rental agreement for specific details about the amount of notice required and notify your landlord. In the case of homeowners with an HOA, make contact to tell them about your move.

Begin packing your belongings. Unless you’re utilizing Santa Cruz Movers’ packing services, focus on packing non-essentials like off-season clothing and decor to streamline the process.

Take some time off. Clear your personal and business calendars for the day (or, better yet, a few days) as soon as you know your relocation date. Make plans for pets and young children, and ensure that you’ll be able to focus on moving when the day arrives.

Evaluate your furniture. While some items may be well-suited for your new home, others might be ill-fitting due to their size. Determine whether to include each piece of indoor and outdoor furniture in your move.

Consider the details. See if your freezer contains food that needs to be used before the move. Assess whether or not your movers will need a parking permit at your new or old address. Ensure you have an ample supply of packing materials. Thinking through these details will be advantageous in the weeks leading up to the move.

Change your address. You’ll need to change your address with medical and dental providers, employers, banks, delivery services, educators, creditors, USPS, accountants, and subscription services. 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.

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

The Week of the Move

Get your old home in tip-top shape. Whether you roll up your sleeves or treat yourself to the expertise of a cleaning service, this step will prove beneficial once the hectic move is over and you begin unpacking at your new place.

Confirm utility and internet set-up. In order to prevent inconvenient service interruptions, make the necessary calls to your utility companies and internet provider. Make it a point to jot down all the appointment times for future reference.

Confirm the move. Get in touch with Santa Cruz Movers to confirm details regarding your movers’ arrival time and to verify that your move is proceeding as planned.

Inform your neighbors. If there’s a chance your move might interfere with your neighbors’ lives in any way, it’s a good idea to let them know.

Pack any remaining items. Again, unless you’re using our packing service, you’ll want to start packing the rest of your house. Select a specific place for any items you’ll need first.

The Day Before the Move

Prepare for the big day. Take a moment to go over key details such as your schedule for the day, meal plans, your readiness time, and the expected arrival time of your movers. Confirm that your vehicle has a full tank of gas.

The Day of the Move

Supervise everything. Place critical personal belongings in your car for easy access, walk around your property to ensure everything is loaded, and make yourself available to direct the movers.

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 secure your former home. Verify that every light is turned off, every window is shut, every room is empty, and every lock is secured as you leave.

Look after yourself. Ensuring you stay hydrated and nourished throughout the day will help you maintain your stamina. Have snacks and beverages at the ready for any visiting friends or family members.

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!
