Moving Company Checklist and Non-Allowables

Before your moving company performs your move, you should have a moving out of home checklist checklist in hand. This will help you through the process of getting your home ready for your moving company.

This checklist should have steps you will take before the movers showing up at your home to begin removals. It may be as simple of a list of reminders that you must do before you move or it may have a weekly list of what you have to accomplish each week. This is especially important if you are going to pack your things yourself as you will want to plan whether by room or by grouping items your progress soon moving house day you are still not packing.

For example, on week one you may put down that you are going to remove all of the pictures from the walls. This is a good start because if you have to climb over packed boxes to take down pictures you may not only damage them, but you may hurt yourself as well. Then note that you have to arrange them by size so they can be combined when packed. This way you can also decide if you want to take each picture with you to the new home.

On week two you may note that you have to get all of the pots and pans together so you can begin filling larger boxes with these sometimes awkward items. Just be sure to sort out any issues you will need before the move and use this time to sort out any questions you want to discard. Then you would carry on for each week until you have the entire house packed up on paper and you have a sort of road map from beginning to end.

Another thing to be aware of is the items that cannot be moved or the nonallowable objects. If you have a list of these provided by your interstate removalists perth, then you can put them in a separate pile to be given away or discarded. Some of these items include of course perishables such as frozen food which will melt during a move. Then there are hazardous items such as propane tanks. As the driver will tell you, he has enough gas on the van, and he doesn’t need anymore. They will not move charcoal lighter fluid, liquid bleach, car batteries, paint thinners, motor oil, or such similar items. In other words, that item that when overheated may catch on fire or explode.

There are other items which you should not have the mover move in case something happens to the truck or moving the van. These would be items of personal importance or those items that are sentimental such as irreplaceable pictures or wedding albums. You would not want to lose your jewelry or any stocks or bonds you may have. Financial documents should not be packed, especially if they may give someone access to your checking accounts or your social security number.
