Minnesota Complete Moving Checklist

Moving residences is a large undertaking. Without organization, it can get hectic. Use the following moving checklist to stay organized and ensure your move is as streamlined and easy as possible.

  • Go through each room and decide which items you will keep, which you will throw away, and which you will give away. A couple of months before the move, decide what to purge and what to pack. This makes moving much easier.
  • If you have children and are moving into a new school district, make all necessary arrangements for transfer records and settle the start date.
  • Take measurements of your new residence, making sure there is enough clearance to fit furniture.
  • Call us to book a date and plan your move!
  • Set aside anything you plan to transport yourself.
  • If you are packing instead of the movers, pack and label boxes to ensure the movers know where things belong and how to load the truck.
  • Forward mail and send notice of change of address to banks, magazines, insurance companies, and creditors.
  • Contact utility companies to schedule a switch so that all is in order when you arrive at your new residence.
  • If you have a long drive to get where you’re going, schedule a checkup for your vehicle. This way, you won’t have any unpleasant surprises during the trip.
  • Pack suitcases and all other items you will be transporting with you.
  • A week before your move, feel free to call us and confirm arrangements.

A little organization goes a long way. Having a checklist and ticking it off makes the process of moving as smooth as possible. For more information on preparation, or to schedule you move, please contact us.
