Your Essential House Moving Check List

Are you moving house in Geelong? If this is your first time you are moving house, you will benefit from what we like to call a “moving house checklist”. When it comes to moving house, it is not easy to remember everything. Things quickly get hectic and you may just forget something essential. 

Our Moving House Checklist

The task of moving house starts before your Geelong removalist turns up at your door. Planning ahead is what makes any house move go smoother. As soon as you know you are going to move, sit down and start planning. This is where your checklist comes in. 

Boxes and Crates

Most removal companies can help you with crates. Give them a call and let them know how many crates you will need. If you are not sure, responsible removalists will come around to give you advice and guidance. 

You can also approach supermarkets and ask for surplus boxes. It is a good idea to number both boxes and crates. Put the numbers on a checklist and make a note of what you have packed in each crate. 

Contracting In Cleaning Services

Once you have moved out, you probably need to clean your house. However, that is not easy to do if you need to go back to work or have moved to another part of Geelong. 

It is a good idea to contract in a professional house cleaning service. That way you don´t have anything to worry about once you have left the property.

Don’t Forget About Your Pets

If you are a pet owner, it is important to plan ahead for your pets. Don´t forget to pick up any paperwork or certificates that you may need from your veterinarian. Your pets´ bedding and feeding bowls should be easily accessible. To keep the peace in your new home, pet accessories are one of the first things you want to unpack. 

Redirect Your Mail

Tell Geelong Post that you are moving house so they can be informed that you’re changing your address. Arranging an alternative delivery is easy. You can set it up online, it takes a matter of minutes. The service is available for both personal users and businesses.

Creating a checklist is a personal thing. Remember to start with the top priorities and then work your way down the list. It is a good idea to have a tick box to one side. That way you know you have completed the task. If you any more advice, please feel to give us a call. 

If you need a removalist, get these guys. We have way too much stuff, but Tom and Cam smashed it out so quickly – and with a smile on their face the whole time. Great service, fair price, and no issues.
