The Long Distance Moving Checklist

Depending on the size of your company, as well as the amount and type of contents, it may make more sense for you to pack your small business yourself rather than utilize our packing service. If that’s the case, just call on us to bring the muscle for moving day and reference this office moving checklist for assistance.
preparing a table for a long distance move
  • What stays and what goes? When moving long distance, it is advisable to go through every room in the house and decide what to pack and what to purge. A yard sale preceding the long distance move is often beneficial.
  • Make a moving binder or folder in which to keep all documentation. This might be the agreement with the moving company, related receipts, and an inventory of items you are moving.
  • Go to your local United States Post Office to initiate a change of address form. This can also be completed online. Notify all financial institutions, credit card companies, insurance companies, and utilities of your move. Don’t forget to have your medical provider and/or your child’s school transfer records.
  • If you are packing yourself, order or obtain your moving supplies. Top Team movers are a great resource for all the supplies you will need for your move. As your long distance mover, we can provide bubble wrap, moving paper, labels, tape, and high quality moving boxes (including specialty boxes for wardrobes, heavy duty items, pictures or mirrors, and dishes). If you don't have time for packing, or would rather someone else do it for you, Top Team offers a packing service. Remember that packing heavy items like books in small boxes will make lifting and transporting more manageable.
  • Consider dimensions of your new space. Have you determined that your current furniture will fit through the doorways in your new home? Have you considered the layout or floor plan with respect to the size and orientation of your current decor (ex. area rugs, cabinets, and sofas)? Additional considerations may include whether the truck will fit in the neighborhood or driveway. Inform your mover if the roads are tight, there are major hills, or if there are low-hanging branches on trees. In these situations, or perhaps in a busy city, a “shuttle” may be necessary. This means unloading from the larger truck onto a smaller one to bring the items to the home.
  • As moving day approaches begin to use up all the things you don’t intend to transport (ex. perishable or frozen foods, propane or gas, cleaning products, etc.)
  • Consider transporting some belongings yourself. This may include jewelry or small electronics like computers and tablets. If you do not plan on moving these more expensive items yourself (ex. items that are valued at $100 or more per pound), then consider obtaining additional moving insurance for these valuables. Don’t forget to empty your safe-deposit box and refill all necessary prescriptions before leaving.
  • If you are not utilizing Top Team's packing service, start packing the items you need infrequently. This may include packing out-of-season clothing, fine china, holiday decorations, books, pictures, or kitchen equipment that you rarely use.
  • After packing, be sure to label each box with its designated room and floor (ex. 2nd floor bathroom, 1st floor primary bedroom). As you are packing, list the contents within the box for easy prioritization when unpacking.
  • Create an “open first” box with all of your essentials. This will be the first box you open when you arrive in your new location. You may also consider creating and labeling a “parts” box in case you had to disassemble furniture or other items.
