What To Do When Moving House

  • Make a moving checklist. This way you’ll know exactly what needs to be packed and prepared before your furniture movers arrive.
  • Take inventory of what’s coming with you to the new house, so you know exactly what needs to be packed and transferred on your moving day.
  • Donate anything that you wouldn’t use or want at your new house to charity to help reduce clutter and excess luggage.
  • Buy packing materials (bubble wrap, tape, boxes, labels) ahead of time, so you’re ready to start packing as soon as your moving date is confirmed.
  • Pack fragile items in extra protection to help reduce the risk of damage along the way.
  • Pack an overnight bag with everything you’ll need the day after your move. Be sure to pack the essentials, such as toilet paper, clothes, phone chargers and a toothbrush!

What Not To Do When Moving House

  • Don’t overload or overpack your boxes! Too many items, especially heavy ones, can cause boxes to rip. 
  • Don’t let sharp objects protrude out from your boxes. Sharp edges could hurt you and others on moving day.
  • Don’t label boxes solely on the top. You’ll want to label boxes on the side, too, so you know exactly what’s inside them and where they’re going in the new home even when stacked.
