To prepare for your move in Chicago, you should start making a moving checklist right away. This checklist is used by you and anyone important to your moving process, such as a spouse and your moving company. Here is a brief look at how you can easily make this very important addition to your move:
- Use a folder or binder with pockets available to hold various documents, such as receipts, bills, and other important moving paperwork.
- At the beginning of your moving folder, have a detailed checklist of people and companies you need to contact. Write down important tasks to do, such as purchasing moving supplies. Check these tasks off as you complete them.
- Include a calendar planner in this folder. You can record important dates, such as utility shutoffs, moving dates, and due dates for bills.
- Keep subjects separated by color-coded folders or tabs. Different subjects might include mortgage information, inventory checklist, moving quotes and contracts, and other documents that should not be packed away immediately before, during, and after the move.
