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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...

The crew took a long time but everything was put together, covered properly and there was no damage. Allied accommodated my move over the holidays. The first rep we went on medical leave so Allied's communication with us got kind of backed up.

Allied Van Lines

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.

I would have no problem recommending them. It wasn't a perfect move. There was some damage to my household goods.

The driver was really careful and went above and beyond to get my stuff delivered. The packing was good but there were a few things broken and all of my things were not packed.

We were very happy with the time, the professionalism and care taken with our stuff. One thing that we were disappointed with was the driver did not equally distribute the trip.

Everything was really good but when they were unloading they seemed a little rushed. Other than that, we just had a few things damaged which was minor.

I had to do a lot of communication. Also I had to know what and where things would go and keep in contact with people. But they were flexible with my hours. The driver was held up in traffic but I had to call him. The driver actually helped me it was not Allied initially.
