Moving Checklist: 1 Week Before Moving Day


Last updated:

One week before moving day, ensure a smooth transition by confirming the moving date with the company, taking time off work, and beginning to pack non-essential items. Keep track of your belongings by labeling boxes and creating an inventory list. Inform important contacts about your move and handle utility transfers or cancellations. Prepare essentials for your first day in the new home and dispose of hazardous materials. Make sure parking and travel arrangements are in place, and plan meals to use up perishable food. Return borrowed items, collect loaned items, and backup computer files. Check the weather forecast, charge devices, and prepare an emergency kit. Lastly, confirm the payment method for the moving company and pack a personal bag for moving day.
