Are you getting ready to move but have no idea where to start?

Believe it or not, an hour of good planning with a solid moving inventory list can help cut down on both moving stress and your moving timeline.

Read on to find out how a moving checklist can help make this move a breeze for you.

1. Beat the Forgetful Brain

Moving is a chaotic and messy process. You’re so used to your belongings where they are at home, but you have to pack everything up and move.

One of the best organizational tips for the moving process is to keep a moving inventory list.

This moving checklist will help you make sure that you get to pack all the things that you need. Certain things can be left behind and bought new. However, for your essential items, you want to make sure you’ve got them ready and packed.

Packing with a moving plan will help to streamline your move. You don’t have to spend more time than necessary on the process. Cut down on moving stress and make it as painless as possible.

2. Count Your Belongings

Moving theft and moving fraud are things you should definitely keep in mind. They happen to the best of us and you should be prepared for the worst-case scenarios.

This is not to say that all moving companies are not trustworthy. You can find a good moving company with good reviews. However, in the case that you cannot find a single reputable moving company for your move, you may have to go with rogue movers.

A moving inventory list can be a good safety measure against moving theft and moving fraud. You can count all the things you’ve packed on and off the truck to avoid moving losses. 

3. Find Items Quickly

After the movers unload the trucks, you’re left sitting in your new apartment with a bunch of boxes and you don’t know where anything is. You dig into a few boxes to find your phone charger. You have no idea where your dishes and eating utensils are.

The good thing about having a moving inventory list is that you know exactly where everything is. The dishes and kitchen essentials are in Box F, and your bathroom essentials are in Box A.

Imagine how smooth unpacking will be if you keep things organized and know where you put them. Of course, you can only do so much organizing during the packing and moving process. However, a moving checklist will carry its weight and shorten the end of your moving timeline.

Create Your Moving Inventory List

You don’t have to create one from scratch. You can take a peek at other people’s moving inventory lists and customize theirs for your own list.

A moving checklist saves you a lot of time and headache during the whole moving process.
