5 Lists That Are Important to Make When You Move

5-Lists-That-Are-Important-to-Make-When-You-Move

Staying organized is essential when it’s time to gear up for a move. With your home being thrown into a state of chaos, it’s the only way to help ensure that you’ve got what you need and you’re not forgetting to tackle any of those important “to do” items. To help tackle your important “to do” items, here are five lists that are essential to remember when it’s time to make your move.

Medications

If you or a family member has certain medications to take, then this needs to be a priority list. Make a note of all of the prescriptions that are necessary. Organize your list so that any medication that must be taken on a daily basis (and therefore must be packed last minute), isn’t forgotten or misplaced.

Address Changes

Of course, once you part ways with your former address you will need to change your information so that it includes your new one. This must be done for a variety of documentation and sources. For example, your driver’s licence, work, insurance, banking information, doctor’s office, and health services. You should also include any non-essentials, such as magazine subscriptions.

Utilities to Register

Before you move into your new home, you should have certain utilities up and running, so be sure to include these on your list. Items can include hydro, water, and heat. Any other areas that require you to register or activate such as cable, or Internet should be included as well.

Cancel Accounts No Longer Needed

Before you leave your former property, you’ll need to cancel a variety of accounts as well. If you have Internet, cable, a phone line, insurance, or even a local gym membership that you won’t be able to access from your new, distant neighbourhood – add these to your list!

Loose Ends Around the House

Packing up your home is a lot of work. And with all of the commotion happening during a move, it’s easy to forget about so many of those tasks that you have to do around the house before saying your final farewell. So create a list to make your moving day easier on you. This can include all of the loose ends and final cleaning chores that should be done around the house before departing.

Stay organized and on top of your moving process by utilizing the power of lists. Use these five to help get you started.Make the move even easier by hiring professional movers!
