The Ultimate Moving Packing Checklist

By Two Twigs Moving

Moving to a new home can be both an exciting and challenging experience. The key to a smooth and successful move is efficient organization, and that starts with a comprehensive packing checklist. Whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, Two Twigs Moving is here to guide you through the process. This packing checklist will help ensure that no detail is overlooked and that your belongings arrive at your new home safely and securely.

Two Months Before Your Move

  • Create a Moving Folder: Start a dedicated moving folder or digital file to keep track of important documents, such as contracts, estimates, and inventory lists.
  • Research Moving Companies: If you’re hiring a professional moving company like Two Twigs Moving, begin your research and obtain quotes.
  • Sort and Declutter: Go through your belongings and decide what to keep, donate, or sell. Dispose of items that can’t be used or are in poor condition.
  • Notify Schools and Transfer Records: If you have children in school, contact their current school to initiate the transfer of records to the new school.

Six Weeks Before Your Move

  • Gather Packing Supplies: Collect boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and other essential packing materials. Two Twigs Moving can also provide these supplies if needed.
  • Start Packing Non-Essentials: Begin packing items you don’t use daily, such as off-season clothing, decorative items, and infrequently used kitchenware.
  • Label Boxes: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking much more efficient.
  • Notify Service Providers: Inform utilities, internet, cable, and other service providers about your upcoming move. Schedule disconnection and reconnection at your new address.

Four Weeks Before Your Move

  • Contact Two Twigs Moving: Confirm your moving date and provide any additional information that may be relevant to the move.
  • Pack Room by Room: Continue packing room by room, keeping similar items together. Clearly label boxes with fragile contents.
  • Create an Essentials Box: Pack a box with essential items you’ll need in the first few days at your new home, including toiletries, a change of clothes, and important documents.
  • Handle Legal Matters: Update your address with the post office, banks, and any other important institutions.

Two Weeks Before Your Move

  • Confirm Plans: Double-check your moving date and arrangements with Two Twigs Moving. Make sure everything is in order.
  • Disassemble Furniture: If needed, disassemble furniture and appliances. Keep all hardware in a clearly labeled bag or container.
  • Pack Valuables Separately: Pack and transport valuable items like jewelry, important documents, and family heirlooms personally.
  • Final Clean and Inspect: Give your old home a thorough cleaning. Check each room and closet to ensure you haven’t overlooked anything.

Moving Day

  • Verify Details: Confirm the moving plan with Two Twigs Moving, including the destination address, contact information, and any specific instructions.

  • Check the Inventory: Review the inventory list with the movers to ensure all items are accounted for.

After the Move
