Do you have everything ready for moving day? There’s a lot to prepare, and it’s imperative to have everything ready to go for an easy, smooth process. But not everything can be done before the movers arrive. There are some important tasks that should wait to be done on moving day. To ensure you’re prepared, here are 5 tasks to remember for your move out date.
Packing Your Car
Any valuable and irreplaceable items like expensive jewelry, your passports, laptop, and liquor should be transported with you in your car. And while it may seem like a good idea to put these in your vehicle the night before, it’s best to wait until you are ready to leave to ensure these items are safe from theft.
Throwing Out All of Your Food and Disposables
Moving day can be rather hectic, so it’s best to keep some food on hand to get you through the day. Muffins, dried snacks, or pre-packed sandwiches will help keep you fueled. You’ll also need plenty of water on moving day, so don’t forget to leave out a few glasses or a reusable water bottle to keep on hand.
Before you leave, don’t forget to check inside all of the appliances that you’re leaving behind. There could be some clothes left in the washer/dryer or dishes in the dishwasher that need to be packed up and brought along.
A final walkthrough is a must. Even if a room has been cleaned out earlier in the day, it’s important to check each room to ensure nothing gets left behind.
The Final Clean
Don’t forget to keep some of your cleaning supplies available – broom, all-purpose cleaner, rags – as you’ll need to do a final sweep and clean once each room is cleared out. If there’s a ton of cleaning to be done, it might be a good idea to hire a cleaning company who can come in after and give it a deep clean.
