Moving ChecklistCreating a moving checklist for your home or business move in Atlanta, Dunwoody, Woodstock, or one of the surrounding areas is a great way to keep organized and stay on task. But making sure to get down on paper all the elements involved in your move can be overwhelming, so Buckhead Movers is here to offer you some advice about how to ensure your checklist for the relocation is comprehensive and goal oriented.

Organizing the tasks at hand according to when they need to be completed is a good way to keep your moving checklist from getting too cumbersome.

  • 2-3 months prior to move: Start sorting through your belongings and getting rid of items that you no longer want or need. There’s no sense in packing and moving things that you’d rather do without, so toss everything in some boxes and drop it off at the local thrift store. Now is also a good time to start reading moving reviews of moving companies in your area to see which movers best fit your needs.
  • 1 month prior to move: Choose your moving company and make sure that you have all the necessary moving supplies on hand. You may also want to start packing items that you know you will not need in the weeks leading up to or following the move, such as seasonal items. Now would also be a good time to begin change-of-address notifications.
  • 2 weeks prior to move: Continue packing what you will not need in the coming weeks. Take measurements of your new space and consider the floor plan when packing. Label boxes carefully so that it’s easy to take an inventory of what you’ve already packed. Determine if you will need storage space. If so, add this to your moving checklist.
