Moving Day Checklist


At AP Moving Services, we know that moving is a time consuming, labor intensive process. We’re here to make it easier for you with a convenient checklist of activities you need to do…and when you need to do them:


– Obtain estimates from at least three different movers and select the one that best meets your needs


Meet with your mover to discuss cost, liability coverage, packing, loading, delivery and claims procedures

Sort through and throw out, give away or sell things you don’t want or need


If the mover does the packing, arrange for it to be done one to two days before loading

If packing yourself, begin packing

If necessary, arrange for temporary storage of your goods

Send furniture, drapes and carpets for repair or cleaning

Arrange for repair work on your new house


Arrange to have appliances and utilities disconnected in your old home; arrange hookups for your new home

Make travel arrangements and hotel reservations for your trip

Apartment dwellers: reserve the elevator for pickup/delivery day


Obtain medical, dental and veterinary records

Organize car license, registration and insurance records

Obtain, fill out and mail change-of-address cards

Make special arrangements for transporting pets and plants

Take care of bills, stocks and bank accounts


Arrange for baby-sitter on moving day

Transfer prescriptions

Arrange for delivery services (newspapers, groceries, etc.) to be discontinued.

1-2 DAYS

Pack clothes, toiletries, valuables, and anything you will need immediately upon moving into your new home, and plan to take these items with you and not on the moving truck
