Moving Checklist by The Shires Group

Moving to a new home or office can be a daunting task, but with proper planning and organisation, it can be a smooth and stress-free experience. Use this moving checklist to ensure that your move goes off without a hitch:

What To Do!

Choosing a specific date gives you a clear timeline to work with and helps coordinate all your moving-related activities.

Being experienced movers we can streamline the entire process, ensuring the safety of your belongings and minimising the risk of damage.

Establishing a budget helps you keep track of expenses and prevents overspending during the move.

Eliminating unnecessary items reduces the volume of things to move, making the process more manageable and cost-effective.

Having the right packing materials, such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap, makes packing more efficient and protects your belongings. You can buy these items from our shop.

Packing over time reduces stress and allows you to organise your belongings systematically.

Clear labels help you find items quickly in your new home and assist movers in handling fragile or special items with care.

Keeping an inventory of your possessions ensures nothing gets lost or left behind during the move.

This step ensures you have essential services like electricity, water, and internet available at your new location from day one.

Updating your address with relevant authorities, including the post office and government agencies, avoids any inconvenience regarding mail and official documents.

Having a box with immediate essentials like toiletries, clothes, and important documents ensures a comfortable first day at your new place.

A final inspection of your old property ensures you haven’t left anything behind and that it’s in good condition.

Building good relationships with neighbours from the start can be beneficial and create a sense of community in your new location.

Being ready on moving day, with all your belongings packed and a clear plan in place, reduces stress and keeps things running smoothly.
