Creating a Moving Checklist
Things to prepare
Once packing begins for an upcoming move, creating a moving checklist is important, as it will help to remain organized and ensure nothing gets forgotten. Listed below are some common items that often get forgotten during the packing process. These include:
Valuables – If you have valuable jewelry, or other high value items, make sure they are packed and remain with you throughout the duration of the move. In some cases, it is common that items of value are stored in a different location, such as a safety deposit box.
Medication – If you or any family members require medication, make sure to obtain enough to last until you are able to get a new prescription. Pack and keep them with you while your belongings are in transit.
Documents – All personal records and documentation including: medical records, financial documents, bank and credit card statements, school records etc. should be packed and kept with you at all times. If you already have a destination address or somewhere secure where these can be sent, consider shipping them priority.
Electronics – One very important item not to forget are chargers for commonly used electronics. Make sure to gather all chargers and cables. Having spare chargers and cables is advised. If moving internationally, make sure to have correct adapters for any country you will be in.
