Your Moving Checklist

Throughout every step of the moving process, organization is key. Everyone knows that moving can be stressful, but preparation, sticking to a well-thought-out timeline, and hiring Santa Cruz Movers will make the process smooth from start to finish.

A Month or Two Ahead of the Move

Schedule your utilities and other services for cancellation. You’ll want to notify your electric company, internet service, trash and recycling service, gas and/or propane company, and other utility services about your exact moving date, ensure that your service will be canceled on the right date, and provide the company with your new address.

Notify the necessary people or businesses. If you rent, check your rental agreement for specific details about the amount of notice required and notify your landlord. If you’re a homeowner, notify your HOA, if you have one.

Begin sorting through your belongings. Moving is an excellent time to purge items you don’t need. The last thing you’ll want to do is sort through items you could’ve offloaded before the move.

Evaluate your furniture. Some furniture might be perfect for your new place, while other items might be too big or small to work in the new space. Decide whether or not you want to move each piece of furniture – indoors and out.

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.

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

Iron out the details. Will your movers need a parking permit at your current home or at your new one? Do you have all the supplies you need? Do you have food in the freezer that needs to be eaten so it doesn’t get wasted? Walk through your house and take note of these small details.

Take time off. As soon as you know your moving date, clear your work and personal calendars for the day (or, better yet, a few days). Make care arrangements for pets and young children and ensure that the move will have your full, undivided attention.

Start the packing process. Unless you’re utilizing the packing services of Santa Cruz Movers, you’ll want to start packing non-essentials – like off-season clothing and decor – to get them out of the way.

The Week of the Move

Tell your neighbors. If your move might be an inconvenience for your neighbors or if they’ll be required to move vehicles, you’ll want to let them know ahead of time.

Confirm the move. Contact Santa Cruz Movers to verify specific details about what time your movers will arrive and to let us know you’re still on track to move as scheduled.

Confirm utility and internet set-up. You’ll want to avoid unforeseen service interruptions by calling your internet provider and utility companies. Write down all appointment times.

Get your old home in tip-top shape. Whether you choose to hire a cleaning company or do it yourself, this step will prove helpful when the hustle and bustle of the move takes your attention (and your energy) away from your old home.

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. Designate a special location for any items you’ll need first.

The Day Before the Move

Think through the day ahead. Make sure you know what time your movers will arrive, what time you’ll need to wake up, what you’ll eat, and where you’ll need to be at different points of the day. Gas up your car so you’re ready for the journey ahead.

The Day of the Move

Oversee everything. Walk through your home to be sure nothing was forgotten, make yourself available to answer any questions the movers might have, and put any personal items in your own vehicle so you don’t have to hunt them down later.

Remember to eat and drink. Staying hydrated and fed throughout the day will keep your own momentum up. Keep snacks and drinks on hand for any friends or family members as well.

Check and lock your old place. Confirm that each room is empty, all windows are closed, all lights are out, and all locks are secure on your way out.

Return your keys. If you rented your old home, give your keys back to the landlord as a final step. If you sold your home, you’ll want to coordinate handing them over to the new owner or their real estate agent.

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!
