When we decide to move, a number of factors are required
to be kept in mind, so that the movement is hassle-free and successful.
If the services of the moving company are hired, the work becomes
simpler, as every small detail is taken care of by the moving company.
In case the services of a moving company are not taken, then it becomes
necessary that a checklist list be prepared. This checklist works
as a reminder to the work that is required to be performed. A checklist
is required to include all the factors that are worth considering,
when you decide to move from one place to another. Checklist consists
of a detailed record of all those items that require special consideration.
After all your preparations related to the moving that is about to
take place, you can refer to the checklist, so that you can keep a
track of all the items that require special reminders and concentrations.
Moving checklist is considered essential so that you do not miss out
any essential item, and also keeps you updated about the progress
of packing and the way all goods are arranged in the respective boxes.
Factors that are taken into account in a moving checklist
An ideal moving checklist will have a “move
file” that shall be having a check on all the different
amenities that are required when you decide to make a move.
It shall have a receipt of all the information that is required
when you will be moving from one place to another. There is
another checklist that will be prepared containing a chart of
the expenses. You can make contact with the local chamber of
commerce. The checklist usually consists of a plan, of the new
home, so that you can start deciding, about the manner in which
the goods will be packed. The moving checklist shall also include
a budget within which all matters are required to be settled.
Moving checklists are usually prepared on weekly
basis that gives a glimpse of the work that is to be performed,
so that there are no last minute rushes. It is usually prepared
on the basis of time span, such as two weeks before the move,
a week before the move and on similar grounds.
Certain items are present in the moving checklist
that requires special kind of attention. These can be emergency items
such as stopping the services of milk and newspaper. This is required
to be made in the last few days, as they are essential items, which
cannot be stopped earlier. They can not also be continued for an indefinite
period, and hence they form an important place in the checklist. Gas
and electricity is also included in the checklist so that they are
not left, as these are some of the most essential items. The professional
movers’ prepare checklists best, as they can keep an account of all
the items that require special attention before any move is made.
In case you do not hire professional movers, it is the best to prepare
the checklist as per the priority of the goods.
