Preparation Timeline For Your Move

8 Weeks

Before the move

Typically you will want to plan your move as early as possible. Finding a reputable Denver moving company, like Abe Lincoln Movers, can help you address any moving concerns you may have. This is also a good time to get a quote for your move to calculate potential moving expenses. Here are some other moving checklist items that need to be addressed before your big moving day: 

  • Create a moving folder or computer file where you can store any important information or documents regarding your move. For example, these documents would include your moving quote, a list of items you want to sell, moving expense receipts, a lease if you’re a renter, etc.
  • Request time off from work if you aren’t moving on your days off.
  • Plan a garage sale and schedule a pick-up time with your donation center for any of your leftover unwanted items.

6 Weeks

Before Your Move

After the initial prep work, you will want to start collecting or purchasing moving containers from various locations like your place of employment, restaurants, or even stores. Begin packing! Remember to: 

Label your boxes by room

Take photos of your electronics’ wiring, which will help you re-wire them quicker when you arrive at your new destination.

Measure all your doorways, stairways or elevators to ensure your furniture and large household items will fit.

The Week

of your move

The week before your move can be overwhelming, but also exciting! Ensure you are ready for moving day by:

  • Forwarding your mail 
  • Transfering your renter’s insurance or homeowners insurance to your new abode.
  • Cleaning up around your current home! This is a courtesy move for your next tenant, and if you’re a renter, this is essential for receiving your deposit back.

Day Before Your Move

The day before your move is a chance to ensure you have gathered all your belongings. Make sure nothing is left behind in your home by rechecking drawers and closets. Set aside items that you will need the first day at your new place, and ensure you have weather appropriate items for the next day!
