NYC Residential Moving Checklist for a Smoother Move

Use this handy checklist to keep your relocation moving right along:


Things to Do Before You Move

  • Sort out your cupboards and closets and donate old clothes, toys, kitchen items, books, etc. Clearing the clutter will save time and money. 
  • Use brightly colored labels on boxes for each room of the house. Keep a stack of the colored labels and a big black marker handy during packing. 
  • Make a box of soft things to use for packing – fill it with old towels, t-shirts and bedding you’re planning to get rid of, then donate them after you move.
  • Get rid of heavy items like books and papers. They’re expensive to move, so donate surplus office supplies and books, and recycle old papers.
  • Cut down on house cleaning the week of your move – spend the time clearing clutter instead. You’ll need to clean everything when you move into your new home anyway!
  • Get your home office in order – if you have files you’re going to archive, box them up and label them for storage in your new house.
  • Get some extra large, clear plastic bags to pack pillows and bedding – it’s easy to see what’s in them when unpacking.
  • Pack a few boxes with essentials like soap and paper towels, toilet paper, towels, bedding, coffee maker and coffee, and a few light bulbs to help you get settled.
  • Label your essential boxes OPEN FIRST.

During and After Moving

  • Put a sign on the wall where you want large furniture pieces placed. “Center the bed on this wall,” for example, will save your movers lots of time. 
  • Explain your colored labels to the team unloading the truck, so they can put things in the right rooms. 
  • Find your boxes labeled OPEN FIRST.
  • Set up one bathroom with towels, soap, toilet paper, etc.
  • Put your bed frames together as early as possible. Make the beds so you’re not doing it at midnight.
  • Stack boxes of glassware and china beside the china cabinet, so you can unpack them later.
  • Area Rugs are heavy, so ask the movers to help you place them under furniture.
  • Focus on unpacking your kitchen as soon as possible so you can get settled in quickly.
  • Enjoy your new apartment, house or home!
