Things to do


Because Eco Movers know how hard it is to remember all the jobs you have to do when you move, we provide a checklist to help you stay on track.

First things first

Sort out your possessions and get rid of anything you no longer need, either by recycling, selling or throwing it away, which will reduce the volume that needs to be moved and save you money! When you know what you are bringing with you, make an inventory of the main items. This will take some time and you should be thorough.

A month to go!

Choose a moving company and book a firm date for the move. You may find that it will cost less if you move on a midweek day or before a certain time of day, so you need plenty of time to discuss options with the movers. Eco Movers, for example, will complete your move at a lower price if you are able to be flexible about the time of day.

Two weeks

If you take prescription medicines, make sure you check your supplies at this point, in case you need to order more. Also, if you need repair or cleaning services you should book them now, because if you leave it too late, your chosen company may be too busy to do your job.

The final week

Seven days before the move, you should pack everything that you aren’t using. Your stress levels will be a lot better once you know that the packing is virtually complete. Collect all your important papers together and keep them in an accessible folder, in case you need any of them.

Nearly there!

The day before the move, collect the keys to the new house and pack a box of bedding for use on your first night there. On moving day, stay at the house until the movers finish, then read your meters, turn off the utilities and lock all your doors and windows.

If you start early, write your checklist and consult it often, your move will go much more smoothly.
