Relocating requires a lot of energy and effort. Once the day finally rolls around, you will not regret having been intentional to consider all that goes into move-in day beforehand.
A checklist will go a long way to making sure you are organized and not surprised by the many tasks that come along with a move. The day can quickly become hectic depending on where you are moving and the company you choose to move you.
Avoid decision fatigue by having a well-thought-out checklist so you can he sent over the edge when you have to make one more decision the day of. With a checklist, you can enjoy a much more stress-free moving experience.
Begin Your Checklist with Some Fun
Here’s a pro tip: start your checklist with a fun treat that is totally out of the ordinary. Whether that means preordering a box of donuts or swinging by a fast-food spot to pick up breakfast, having a moment everyone is looking forward to will encourage rising early and getting a jump on the day.
Once your fun start to the day has put everyone at easy and in a good mood, be prepared to show hospitality to the movers as they show up. Hand them some water and offer some food as you walk them through your home.
Check and Check Again
Take this opportunity to do a final sweep of your home and pack up your daily items like toothbrushes and clothes from the night before. Once it’s time to make your way to the new place, here is a great order for your tasks there:
- Unpack only the essentials you will need to make it through the first day and night.
- Rather than possessions, start with some decor like hanging curtains so that you are not exposed once the sun goes down on the first night.
- Have a plan for meals in place and let everyone know the plan. The last thing you want at the end of a long move day is a scuffle about what to do for dinner.
Everyone’s checklist will be different, but the key is to have an extensive list once your move day gets here. For the best moving experience, contact the pros at All Points Moving & Storage. Call All Points Moving & Storage at 866-421-9490 or use our online contact form today.
