Moving Home Timeline
With the right moving home timeline plan in place, moving becomes much more manageable. Start by decluttering and organising your belongings about eight weeks before your move. This gives you time to sort through everything and decide what to keep, donate, or discard. With this timeline, your moving experience can be both efficient and stress-free.
8 Weeks Before the house move
Create a Moving Binder: Start a moving binder or digital folder to keep track of important documents, receipts, and to-do lists.
Inventory and Declutter: Go through your belongings room by room. Decide what to keep, donate, sell, or throw away. This is an ideal time to declutter.
6 Weeks Before the Move
Hire Movers or Rent a Truck: If you’re using professional movers, book them now. If you’re doing it yourself, reserve a rental truck.
Start Packing Non-Essentials: Begin packing items you rarely use, such as seasonal decorations, off-season clothing, and infrequently used kitchenware.
4 Weeks Before the Move
Notify Important Parties: Inform your current and future utility companies, post office, and other important parties about your upcoming move.
Gather Packing Supplies: Purchase or gather packing materials like boxes, tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and markers.
3 Weeks Before the Move
Label Your Boxes: As you pack, label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking much easier.
Pack Room by Room: Start packing items in each room. Focus on one room at a time to maintain organisation.
2 Weeks Before the Move
Pack Valuables: Safely pack and label important documents, jewellery, and valuables to carry with you personally.
Prepare Appliances: Clean and prepare appliances for the move. Defrost the freezer if necessary.
1 Week Before the Move
Pack an Essentials Box: Pack a box with essentials you’ll need immediately at your new home (toiletries, clothes, important documents, snacks, etc.).
Finish Packing: Try to have most of your packing done by this point, leaving only the essentials for the last days.
Final Check: Walk through each room to ensure nothing is left behind. Double-check that all boxes are properly labeled.
Loading: Give the removals company the opportunity to load the truck with your boxes and furniture.
After the Move
Unpack Essentials Box: Start by unpacking the essentials box and setting up your bed and basic furniture.
Prioritise Rooms: Unpack one room at a time, starting with the most essential areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
Dispose of Packing Materials: Recycle or dispose of packing materials responsibly.
Update Addresses: Update your address with relevant organisations, including the DMV, banks, and insurance companies.
