Moving Checklist

Save time and reduce stress by getting organized well before moving day. Here’s a useful moving checklist that will help you get started.

One Month Before

  • Get a free quote from Cadden Brothers and book your moving day as early as possible to ensure you get your desired day.
  • Buy moving boxes and packing supplies.
  • Set up a packing and labelling system. Get organized and begin boxing up anything you won’t need in the next few weeks.
  • Sell, donate or get rid of anything you won’t be taking with you.
  • Notify the post office and any health service providers such as doctors and dentists.
  • Update your human resources/payroll department at work.
  • Secure necessary parking permits both at your current address and at your new home for moving day.

Two Weeks Before

  • Arrange for time off from work on moving day. It’s highly recommended you send small children and pets to be looked after somewhere else.
  • Notify your local DMV of the change of address on your driver’s license.
  • Notify the necessary utility companies such as water, telephone, electric, gas, cable, etc.

One Week Before

  • Cadden Brothers will call you to confirm moving date and time.
  • Complete an inventory form to account for all your valuables and any items you wish to insure.
  • Remove curtains, light fixtures and other affixed items you wish to take with you.
  • Drain gasoline and oil from lawn mowers and other gas-powered equipment.

One Day Before

  • Consolidate packed fragile items into one area.
  • Let your movers know if any furniture is damaged or fragile.
  • Separate and mark items you don’t want movers to take.
  • Ensure personal items such as passports, keys and medications are with you and not packed away.
  • Defrost, drain, and clean refrigerators and freezers.
