Planning a move is more than just calling some movers and setting up a date for them to come and move. There is a surprising amount of work and planning that comes way before the actual moving date. Here is Olympia’s moving checklist to keep you on track for your next move. 

Moving Timeline

Some task that will occur are:

  • Crate delivery
  • Pre-move instructions meeting
  • Move, pack, and prep
  • Movers on site at set time
  • First day at new location
  • Complete unpacking; pick up crates

Setting dates for all these events and following through with it will keep you on track for a stress free move.

Keep a list of Moving Contacts

If you have any questions about your move, remember to call the internal move manager, IT help, and janitorial assistance for any move-related questions

Prepare on Your End

To have your move be as efficient as possible, have everyone do a bit of packing on their own. The moving company of your choice will be spending less time putting things away and more time moving for you. Here is a list to help you and everyone else pack.

1.Clear the desktop and empty all drawers. Pack all these items in the plastic moving crates provided. Each employee will be limited to the supplied number of crates and will not be provided more.

2.Purge unneeded items and documents in the designated shredding, recycling, and garbage stations.

3.If you have any personal items, particularly items of value, take them home for the duration of the move.

4.If your movers have any other instructions, follow them accordingly.
