Moving Home Planner + Checklist

So you have decided to move to a new home and you need some help to prepare for the move, follow through my moving home checklist to help you through each step.

6 weeks before move

  • Create a folder to keep all moving documentation together (eg. checklist, quotes etc)
  • Create a budget on how much you can spend on moving costs
  • Organise quotes for removalists
  • If renting, formally notify property manager you will be vacating
  • If renting, book in to have carpets clean and house pest controlled
  • Check when your new home last had its carpets cleaned and was pest controlled.  If outside of 12 months, organise for your new home to have the carpets clean and it pest controlled before you move in.
  • Enrol kids into new school and have their records transferred over
  • Call your insurance company to see what changes may need to be made to your insurance policy.  Ensure your new home is insured from the day you sign the contract, not the day you move in.
  • Research and book storage facilities, if needed
  • Start collecting boxes, newspaper, bubble wrap
  • Organise time off work for moving
  • Tidy the garage so you can use this space to place packed boxes

The full 6 week – day of move countdown checklist is available in my Moving Home Planner.

Thanks for the planners and all the useful tips! Moving is a very stressful process and only the good organisation can help relieve the stress a little. And nobody has an idea how bad it can be until they have to do it themselves. Thanks for the great resources again!

I’ve had to move across the country several times in my life, however, I always look for ways to improve the experience and make it go more smoothly. Moving out of an apartment is difficult. I like your tip about starting early. That’s helped me not get overwhelmed by doing it all in one weekend. Thanks for the other tips as well!
