Keep all of your documentation in one place. A simple folder or according file storage can do wonders when it comes to keeping all of your documents sorted. You can keep things like your moving quote, all of the information that you have about your new home or business location as well as any receipts that might accumulate during the process.
Sort and purge any unwanted items before you start the packing process. Everything will go much more smoothly if you organize before things go into boxes. It will also help the unpacking process.
Label, label, label. It does sound redundant but it can be a crucial part of your moving checklist. Not only will it help you organize everything when it arrives at your new home but it will also help you and the moving company know how to group the boxes in the moving truck. A good sharpie is a small investment and can be a lifesaver.
Take measurements. It will help if you take measurements of all of your large items such as furniture and if possible have measurements of your future space for planning purposes. You can take all of this information, layout your future rooms and put it all in your moving folder.
Change your address. It seems like a simple step but it is one of the most important. If you take the time to sort your change of address before you start moving then you will have one less thing to worry about and will never have to go back to your previous residence to pick up any mail. It is an essential part of your moving checklist.
