1 day before you move
This page is part of our house moving checklist, a comprehensive guide that sets out what you need to be doing in advance of your house move and when you should be doing it. The day before your removals day it is important to carry out one final, thorough check of your home to ensure all important items have been packed and stored ready for transit. Arrangements are also required to pick up the keys to your new home!
Take a look at the full moving checklist today, or continue reading what you should be doing one month before your move.
Do a thorough, final sweep of your house to ensure you haven’t missed anything. This is best done when all boxes and items are packed into one room. Look behind cupboards, under beds, behind sofas (if leaving them), and down crevices in the kitchen to ensure you leave nothing. Take your time doing this - if you don’t do it properly first time round you’ll get anxious the next day.
Strip the beds and pack the bedding material - this can be taken with you in a box so you can put it straight back on beds when you arrive.
Ensure you have the keys to your new house, or have arranged to collect them in advance.
Inform friends and relatives of the time of your move and have several ‘on call’ to help you if things get too much.
