  • Moving Day Checklist - Things to double check on or before moving day

On moving day:

  • Check attic, basement and garage to make sure all wanted items are taken.
  • Any items such as luggage that you are not including in the goods to be moved, should be kept separate so they will not be moved in error.
  • It is not necessary to empty dresser drawers, but remove all fragile and heavy items and all liquids.
  • Mark any articles you may require first in your new home so that they may be loaded accordingly.
  • Be sure to pick up masking tape and a felt marker.
  • Number or name all of your boxes and furniture according to the rooms they will be placed in at your new home. This will make it more efficient for the movers, cutting down on your costs.
  • Power tools, such as lathes, saws, grinders, should be dismantled for safe moving.
  • Pack a small tool box with you for the move. i.e. hammer, screwdriver, drill, nails and a flashlight as you will almost certainly need them.
  • Purchase a small amount of picture hanging hooks for the new home.
  • Defrost your refrigerator the day before moving.
  • Make sure to drain the gas out of such items as out board motors and power mowers
