Getting Ready To Move It: Pre-Moving Checklist

Posted by Junk King on Nov 28, 2022 5:00:00 AM


'I just love packing and moving!' said no one ever. Moving and relocating can be tedious, costly, time-consuming, and expensive. But it happens frequently.

One of the keys to a successful move, however, is in planning ahead of time and being prepared well in advance of the often dreaded 'moving day.'

Planning for a Move Means More than the Day Before

A wise person once said that a "If you fail to plan then you plan to fail." 

While that may seem a bit harsh when we're talking about moving and relocating it certainly does ring true. Many of us have found ourselves in the throes of packing, sorting, wading through all sorts of packing paper, tape, and debris while trying to remember important tasks that we know we've forgotten.

So many decisions to make, so many services to cancel or update, people and companies to give notice to, and a myriad of other items that must be done, many of which we didn't even know about!

And even with those moves that are both exciting and adventurous, all the preparation and work involved can put a damper on that excitement. 

But not with the proper planning ahead of time!

Pre-Planning  Before Your Move - Making Moving Easier

There is something to be said for being prepared and when it comes to moving and relocating, being prepared can eliminate a host of issues.

From utilities to bill pay to new schools to having the supplies you need when you need them, the range and variety of tasks involved in moving can be overwhelming. Everything costs money, time, and effort and there often doesn't seem to be enough of any of them!

If you are in a position to hire professional movers you can be thankful that some of the hard work will be done for you.

But certainly not all of it.

For those of us who choose to move ourselves it can be a major undertaking, especially if you're moving a family with kids, pets, and a houseful of belongings

A common mistake too many people make when moving - especially "first-timers" - is to think that all the prep, packing, and loading can be done the week before their move-out date. (Insert rolling-on-floor-laughing emoticon here...) 

Nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to a major move out!

So, with that in mind we put together a handy Pre-Moving Checklist to help you be ready when the day comes when you get to "move it."

So Many Tasks, So Little Time

This is not what you want to be saying to yourself just days before you're scheduled to move out of your old place. 

But with proper planning, sufficient time, and a comprehensive packing and moving plan, your next move to your new home or destination can be close to as painless as possible.  And one of the items in your plan - both here and at your new place - is arranging for residential junk removal and getting rid of the excess trash and debris.

What kinds of trash and debris?

Take a typical middle-age couple and empty-nesters. Let's say they've been in their old home for just over 10 years and it is a four bedroom, three bath house that is just under 2,000 square feet.

Once they've packed everything they want to keep and have separated out all their unwanted and non-donatable items, there could easily be four or five pickup truck loads of junk, trash, and debris that will need to be loaded up, hauled off, and disposed of. 

And, once they arrive at their new home, all the boxes that can't be salvaged and used again, along with all the packing material and other trash can easily fill a 12-cubic yard dumpster!

All of which is why, since you have far more important tasks to attend to when you're in the process of moving and relocating, hiring a professional and experienced junk removal company like Junk King should be high on your checklist priorities.
