Whether you are planning a move for your business or your family, it is best to start with a list. Not only does a moving list help you to organize the items that are to be moved, it will also help you manage your resources more efficiently. Resources include time, manpower, and equipment.
A professional mover can give you a list of items which needs to be handled according to strict government regulations. These are usually flammable items such as fireworks, cleaning fluids, or acids. Take note that moving companies will not usually put hazardous and perishable items in their moving trucks.
Designate one person to be in charge of the move and the list. This person will be the point of contact for any changes and will be responsible for sharing pertinent information related to the move with all concerned individuals. However, each of your staff or family members should have their list of items or activities for which they are responsible as well. Breaking down the move in this way makes it more manageable and causes less confusion during the actual moving day.
Organize your list according to measurable milestones and realistic deadlines, and initiate a countdown to the Big Day. Clearly stipulate what needs to be done six weeks before the move, five weeks before the move, and so on. This will help ensure that everyone involved with the move is on the same page – literally.
