Create and print a checklist to take you each step of the way to have a successful move. With this spreadsheet, you can add or remove items as needed.

It is important to have a checklist if you are packing up and moving out. Some of the main benefits of a moving checklist are:

  • Organization: Helps you stay on track with what tasks need to be done before, during, and after moving.
  • Time management and prioritization: Some tasks may take priority and have a timeframe in which they need to be started or completed. Others with less of a priority can be left until later on.
  • Communication and progress tracker: Whether you are moving by yourself or with others, a checklist helps with clear communication. It tracks everyone’s progress and responsibilities.
  • Smoother transition: The main goal of the moving checklist is to create an organized transition by making sure you know all of the tasks and details of each step of the move.

Disclaimer: Every move is different. While planning your move, decide how detailed you want your checklist to be and make the appropriate changes. We don't guarantee everything you'll need to consider is on this list.
