Your Moving Checklist

Organization is essential at every stage of the moving process. 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

Schedule your utilities and other services for cancellation. Call your propane and/or gas company, recycling and trash service, internet service, electric company and other utility services, tell them your moving date, make sure your service will end on the correct date, and give them your updated address.

Schedule time off. Open up space in your personal and professional schedules to prioritize the move. Arrange for the care of young children and pets to guarantee that you can give your move the focused attention it requires.

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.

Take a look at 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. Take the time to decide whether or not to move all indoor and outdoor furniture.

Start packing. If you aren’t using Santa Cruz Movers’ packing services, begin by packing items such as decor, out-of-season apparel, and other non-essentials.

Begin organizing your belongings. Moving is a good time to get rid of things you don’t need. Prevent the need to sift through these unneeded items after the move.

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. You’ll also want to notify your family and friends, change the address on your voter registration, and inform the DMV and Social Security Administration.

Finalize the specifics. Confirm that you have all the essential supplies to prepare for the move. Determine whether your movers will need a parking permit at your current or future location. Take stock of any freezer items that should be eaten soon. Make note of these small details as you conduct a walkthrough of your home.

Notify the proper businesses or people. If you’re a tenant, review your lease for notice guidelines and get in touch with your landlord as necessary. For homeowners with an HOA, be sure to communicate the change to them.

The Week of the Move

Confirm your move. Reach out to Santa Cruz Movers to confirm the arrival time of your movers and to ensure that your move is still set to occur on schedule.

Get your old home sparkling clean. Whether you enlist the services of a cleaning company or handle it personally, this step will be a great help when the demands of your busy move divert your attention (and effort) away from your previous residence.

Pack the rest of your things. Unless you’ve opted for our comprehensive packing services, it’s time to complete the packing process for your remaining belongings. Set aside a dedicated space for items you’ll need immediately.

Verify internet and utility set-up. You should contact your internet provider and utility companies to prevent service interruptions. Be sure to record all your appointment times.

Let your neighbors know. It’s a good idea to notify your neighbors if your move is likely to disrupt their lives in any manner.

The Day Before the Move

Plan out the upcoming 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. Top off your car’s gas tank to prepare for the day ahead.

The Day of the Move

Return your keys. If you rented your previous residence, return the keys to the landlord. If you have sold your home, you should organize handing over the keys to the new owner or their real estate agent.

Remember to eat and drink. It’s important to stay hydrated and have regular meals to sustain your energy levels throughout the day. Make sure you have snacks and beverages readily available for friends or family members.

Supervise the process. Check your property thoroughly to confirm nothing has been left behind, remain accessible for any inquiries the movers may have, and place your personal belongings in your vehicle to eliminate the need for later retrieval.

Check and lock your old place. As you leave, make sure that every light is turned out, every room is vacant, and every window is closed, and every lock is secured.

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!
