Moving: Checklist For Getting Organized

If you don’t do it in time, the changing house can be stressful. Alliance Moving and Storage offers you a top Chrono to get you organized in three months.

J-3 Months Before The Move

Remember to terminate your lease by registering a letter with AR if you are renting. The period is reduced to one month in the event of dismissal, transfer, etc.  

Find a mover such as Barrington, IL Movers for example. It is estimated that the volume to be moved, calculated in m3, generally corresponds to half the surface in m2, i.e., 50 m3 for 100 m2. Have several quotes drawn up because prices vary from simple to triple, especially during school holidays. You have the choice between several formulas: “Luxury” (the service provider takes care of everything from A to Z, the dream, but it’s expensive), “Standard” (he dismantles and reassembles the furniture, packs and unpacks fragile objects) and “Economical” (he only does the loading, transport, and unloading, you are the one who packs).  

D-2 Months

Start sorting, giving, and throwing away. And to collect boxes in supermarkets or buy them. Store everything you don’t need before departure. Indicate to the marker the contents and the room where it should go on both sides of the carton.  

D-1 Month

Inform your Internet service providers of your change of address. According to the new configuration, you can transfer or terminate your cable, telephone, etc. subscriptions—the opportunity to take the opportunity to compare the different offers on the market and renegotiate. Change your mailing address. La Poste offers two services: the simple forwarding of your mail for six or twelve months or the My New Address Pack, which, in addition to forwarding, helps you in all your steps for your move. Start consuming foods from the freezer! 

D-15 Days

Plan the location of the furniture in each room on the plan of your new home and give a duplicate to the mover on D-Day. Terminate your water, gas, and electricity contracts at the old address and request a connection to your new one. Residence. All of this is done over the phone or the Internet. Notify bank, insurance, taxes, social organizations, and mutual of your change of address.  

D-8 Days

Remove anything hanging from the walls, screens, and pictures because the movers won’t. Empty and defrost the refrigerator and freezer two days before. Gather all the documents and keys you will need during the move in a binder. Keep it with you in a separate bag, money, and jewelry. Plan to have children and animals looked after on D-Day. Confirm the appointment time with the mover and check that he has booked the parking space for the truck in front of the house. Warn the neighbors.  

D-Day For The Move

Arrange to have someone present in the new home to greet the movers when they arrive and point out the location of the furniture. Check that there is no breakage when unpacking. If you find any damage, report it on the delivery note. You then have 10 days to confirm your observations by registered letter AR (for appeals, see page 161, what to do in the event of a problem?). Tip the movers and, if necessary, offer them a drink! 

D-Day Survival Kit

Prepare a bag or box that you will take with you, saving you from having to rummage through the boxes on arrival. Inside: clothes for the next day, enough to prepare breakfast, a saucepan, cups, plates and plastic cutlery, a can opener, a tea towel, light bulbs, an electric lamp, your mobile chargers, a toiletry bag, and toilet paper.
