You’ve prepared, found a local moving company, and are ready for moving day! For local moves, you can usually get everything done in one day when working with a reliable and professional moving company.

When the day finally comes, getting ready to move into a new home can be a stressful process, and one way to make it easier is to use a moving day checklist. Make sure you have our moving day checklist on hand to make sure your moving day is as seamless and stress-free as possible.

1. Wake Up Early On Moving Day

No matter what time your movers are scheduled to arrive, you want to wake up early on moving day. To avoid unnecessary stress, you want to make sure you give yourself enough time to prepare and take care of any last-minute items.

Give yourself enough time to eat a healthy, filling breakfast and drink water to be prepared for the long day ahead.

2. Pack Away Your Essentials

Even if everything is packed away, you will still have a few essential items to pack. We recommend packing away your essential items in a purse, backpack, or box where they are easily accessible as soon as you arrive in your new home. Some essential items include:

  • Toothbrushes
  • Toiletries
  • Phone Chargers
  • Medications
  • Perishable Foods

3. Label Your Boxes

Before your movers arrive, make sure any boxes you have packed are labeled. Not only will this help the movers know how to pack the truck depending on the weight or delicacy of items, but it will make your unpacking process quicker and easier once you arrive at your new place.

4. Do a Final Walk-Through

After everything is packed, go through your home one final time. Make sure you walk through every room, and thoroughly check cabinets, closets, and storage space. Have extra boxes on hand to pack any last-minute items that you find along the way.

5. Get Your Home Ready

The last step before the movers arrive is to make sure your home is prepared for a smooth moving process. If you have a pet or small children, make sure they are out of the way of the movers so that they won’t get hurt. Clear pathways so the movers can easily transport boxes, furniture, and other items. Make sure there is room in the driveway that the movers will have plenty of space to pull up their truck and carry items out.

6. Greet Your Movers

Once everything is prepared, your last step is to greet your movers and let them handle the rest of the day! Be sure to verify with the moving company their time of arrival, and payment method so you can have cash or card ready if necessary.
