If you’ve ever moved before, you'll know that the most challenging part of a move is all those little things you have to think about. Good planning is key. So we are here to lend a hand so you can focus on the good parts. Our moving checklist takes you step-by-step through the time leading up to the day of your move. This way you can work through everything, item by item – from the long-term to-dos to all those last-minute tasks.
Being well prepared is half the work! Why? Because there are so many things that you can easily organize months before your moving day. This is one of our key tips: Everything that you can do in advance should be done in advance.

After all this work comes a great wave of both relief and exhaustion. Take some time to recover and relax. You shouldn’t be in a rush to set up your new place.

This is especially true for families with children. Practice taking breaks amid the chaos.
