● Try to secure the closest parking available for the truck the night before you move. By placing your
rubbish bins, or contacting the neighbours, will save you a lot of money!!

● Make a note or a list of the content of each box, so when you unpack you know what each box
contains.

● Try not to overload your boxes, and when you pack them put the heavy items at the bottom(e.g
books), and lighter items on top.

● Make sure you arrange for disconnection and reconnection of utilities (e.g. internet, gas, electricity..).

● Have plenty of supplies (e.g. boxes, sticky tape, markers..), you will always need more than you
think!!

● If you’re not using our cleaning service, put together a basic cleaning kit and leave your basic tools(e.
g. spanners, drills..) handy at least till the loading part is finished.

● Safeguard valuable items (e.g.jewellery,..) and try to put it in your car. Don’t forget to write FRAGILE
on the boxes that contain (glassware…).

● Label all boxes clearly. Make sure that all boxes are labelled clearly with their contents. You can take
it a step further by using colour coding to organise where boxes will go in your new home.

For the record - Obtain copies of your and your family’s medical records, including any dental and
vaccine/immunization information, as well as any veterinary records for the family pet.

Buried treasure - If you’ve hidden any valuables around the house, be sure to collect them before
leaving. You should carry valuable items such as jewellery with you or keep them in a safe deposit box
instead of packing them on the moving Truck

Taken to the cleaners - Remember to collect all items that are being cleaned, stored or repaired (for
example, dry cleaning, shoes, watches, etc.). Also, remember to return library books, movie rentals
and anything else you may have checked out.

Keys to success - Remember the collection of spare house keys. Whether it means retrieving keys
from neighbours or from under the rock next to the front door, don’t forget to gather all sets before you
depart.
