The Final Moving Checklist

Jul 18, 2008
Final House Move Checklist is given below. Before moving from one place to another, make sure that you have done all these, as mentioned in the following final checklist. Please read these principles and try to follow them. These guidelines will really prove to be helpful, and will help to make your move tension free.

1. If you have a pet with you, make sure that it is safe and sound and present when you are ready to move. It is observed that cats, generally, have a habit of disappearing just at the same time when you need them. So, take care of your pets.

2. You should confirm whether the keys of the new home are ready or not. It would save you plenty of time. And do not forget to take the keys for your new house with you, before moving.

3. Ensure that you have told all your acquaintances and relatives, about your plans to move to a new place. You should inform not only your relatives and friends, but also all of your associates who need to be told about your move, like your milkman, cable operator and newsagents etc.

4. Another important point that you must keep in mind is that you should disconnect the gas, electric and water supplies at the mains. Any negligence in this matter may create a serious and costly accident. Before leaving for your new house make sure that you have taken the readings of all the meters.

5. While moving to a new place, you should leave your forwarding address at a proper place where the new resident of your house may easily find it. This is a very important step because there may be a lot of important people and companies of your interest, who would not know that you have moved to a new location or you might not be able to inform a particular person or family due to lack of contact or any other reasons. So whenever they come to your old house or send you any mail at that address the new occupier may tell him about your new address.

6. Before you move, make sure to double check each room to make sure there is no item of furniture left behind or over looked by the movers.

7. Make sure that you have all the belongings and baggage with you, like shoulder bags, pocket books, travel documents etc. Make sure that the important documents like credit cards, educational certificates, driving license etc. are with you. You should keep all these documents in a special bag so that you do not forget them.

8. Before leaving the place, make sure that all the doors and windows are locked up.
9.Do not forget to hand over the keys of your house as arranged.
