Moving Day Checklist For an Easier Relocation

moving checklist

One of the busiest days of your life is about to arrive sooner than you think. Are you as prepared as you should be? Having a moving checklist will make your relocation so much easier. There are many things to consider when preparing for a move, and organizing these thoughts on a moving checklist will ensure that nothing is forgotten. At Allied, we already took care of the task for you by making a moving checklist for each aspect of your move.

Clear walkways

  • Make it safe and easy for your movers to get in and out of your house by removing:
    • Potted plants and planters from front porch, walkways and driveways.
    • All door and floor mats.
    • All rugs. The crew will protect the floors with a specially designed floor covering that does not slip.
    • Low hanging items such as wind chimes or hanging plants.
  • Disconnect the spring on the screen door so that it stays open during the loading process.
  • If you had the moving company pack for you, work with them to keep walkways clear for the driver and crew.

Point out special items

  • During the walkthrough with the driver, point out items that are special to you. All your items will be handled professionally, but take a moment to show them which ones mean the most to you so they will be extra cautious. 
  • Point out the boxes you would like to have unloaded first. These boxes may include kitchen and bathroom items, your children's toys, or anything that you will need as soon as you arrive to your new home.

Before the driver leaves

  • Make sure you understand all the paperwork you are signing before the driver departs. If there is something that is confusing to you, ask your driver to explain it before you sign.
  • Provide the driver with your destination contact information so if something changes, you can easily be contacted. Take down any information the driver can provide such as his cell phone, pager and satellite tracking information.
  • Ask the driver if your shipment is the last one he/she will be loading. Find out when the last shipment goes onto the trailer. This will give you an indication as to when they will be departing for your new home. Ask the driver about his/her plans for delivering your items.

Our moving day checklist is here so you can better prepare for your actual moving day. The small details and things you can do in preparation for your movers will make a big difference when it comes time to move. Something as simple as Allied's moving day checklist makes what can be a complicated process much easier.

Everything was great except they lost one of our bags, the bag has been found now, and they are suppose to be shipping the bag out to me.

Allied was professional but the amount of packers they sent wasn't enough. They initially sent 2 people out but they had to send more later that night to pack everything up. Packing was my only issue.

B/c the person I had the most contact with she notified me of things. She was dealing with too many things at once. There should be more people helping her.

The overall experience influenced my rating. The crew was excellent, didn't hang around or take breaks. They worked their behinds off at maximum speed, as far as I can tell. The crew was above competent. They were excellent. They were just extremely helpful and did everything in a timely manner. They didn't talk, they just worked the whole time.

The driver most influenced my rating. The driver was professional and communicated with us. We always knew where our belongings were at all times.

Not one item was broken, everything happened on time. Everybody was pleasant and friendly. They had to go up 3 flights of stairs and they responded well to that. What happened to the furniture that was storage in Miami.

All of the people w/ Allied Vanlines were fantastic. Mike was the delivery driver and he was great. We haven't unpacked everything, but so far everything looks good.

I've used them before. They were careful w/ my goods & they stood behind their services with the prior move. I got the same treatment with this last move.
