1.    Trash items you won’t need

There’s no need to move items you don’t need to your new home. Be diligent in getting rid of excess items before the movers arrive to reduce the amount of belongings shipped to your new home. Consider separating these items into piles to recycle, sell or donate. There are other items you need to remove that most people don’t think about, including anything that’s hazardous, corrosive, flammable, or combustible. Ensure that you place the dangerous items into a ‘no-pack’ section or room before the movers arrive.

This area can also have items such as your moving essentials, which would move with you.  During COVID-19, bear in mind that you must launder and disinfect all items you wish to donate.

2.    Make a moving inventory checklist

Whether you choose to use a full-service or not, keep an itemised checklist of all your belongings; this helps to track everything you pack and unpack. Besides your checklist, take snapshots of the interior of your boxes before taping them off.

Both tools will help you quickly recognise if your belongings have been tampered with or if anything is lost or damaged. Visual evidence will also help if you need to file a claim about damaged items.

3.    Pack your moving essentials bag

Ensure you’ve packed your essentials bag. This should contain items  ranging from bathroom and kitchen essentials, to a first-aid kit, two sets of clothes, cash, documents, and COVID-19 supplies such as masks and hand sanitiser. We also recommend that you pack up your jewelry and heirlooms in your essentials bag to avoid losing any treasured item.
