A Free Checklist

Brookline Moving Company is one of Boston’s top-rated moving companies. Moving can be an arduous task, but you can make it stress-free by organizing the entire process.  Fill out the form to the left and we will email you a comprehensive checklist to help facilitiate the process.

What is included in the checklist:

Start early- Virtually everyone has more stuff than they think they do, and almost no one leaves enough time to pack it.

Room Lists- Start by forming two room lists, one for your current place and one for your future place.  This will help you manage what has to go where.

Room Inventory- Go to each room and write down the types of things that need to be packed: furniture items, length of shelving, closets, etc.

Time Allotment- Make sure to leave enough time.  The most common timeframe reported by people moving is that it takes a month to pack.  One study reported that it takes 4-5 hours to pack an average dorm room, so that should give you an idea of what’s involved.

Calendar- Pull out a calendar and plan by day when each room will be completed.

Delegation- If you’re moving with family members, agree with them exactly while tasks they will be doing and the date they will be finished.

Track your progress- at least once per week track where you are against the date on the calendar.  Revise your plan if you’re falling behind.
