Military Moving Checklist


 

If you are in the military, then it is likely that you will need to move house on more than one occasion during your service. It doesn't matter if it is your first time or your fifth time moving home - there will always be something that you have forgotten and never wish to forget again! That's why we've put together this helpful military moving checklist!


Getting Started

To begin, pack all the things that you've decided to take. These will be your essentials and probably the items you can't live without for the short period you'll be staying at your new place. Don't forget to pack as many belongings as you can in suitcases, bins, and bags that will fit inside your car! Remember to leave enough space for all of your fellow soldiers who are moving as well.


Getting Rid of Junk Items

If there is anything in particular that you don't use anymore but don't want to throw away just yet, why not give it to a friend or family member? That way, they could give it a good home or even sell it on eBay! If you aren't sure where this item would best go, it's probably better off being thrown out rather than taking up room in your car.


Choosing What to Take to Your New Apartment or House

There are items that you should definitely take with you and other things that can be left behind. Make a list of all the necessary items, then add the ones you could do without as an extra precaution - just in case! For example: Maybe it's a good idea to pack your electric kettle even if it's only been used once?


Packing for the Second Time!

Now we're going to talk about those interesting essentials for moving - packing! It is important that when packing, there is order and organization in which things are done. To begin with, try getting yourself a bin bag for all of your rubbish. This way, everything will be in one place and will be easier to transport without mixing up everything. You'll need a couple of boxes for books, documents, and important paperwork as well; these must be clearly marked on the top with 'books' or 'documents.' Once these are done, you can proceed to fill your suitcases and bags!


Transport Your Belongings – DIY or Hire a Moving Company

You're almost there! Now it's time to pack your car. You might have some help from friends and family members at this point, too - make sure that they carry their own things too, though, so that you aren't doing all the work yourself! If not try hiring a moving company where everything will be taken care by them. If you hire a military moving company, loading, unloading, transporting will be done by them as they are specialized and trained professionals. Lastly, check that all of your items are packed securely so that nothing is damaged in transit. Once this has been done, check that you have all the important documents for your new home, such as telephone numbers and a contact email. You're now ready to move!


How to Save Time on the Day of Moving

If you don't own a moving van or vehicle, then it is advisable to hire one - this way, you can save a lot of time and energy by transporting your stuff over in one go instead of stopping at different places around town. It also means less breaking downtime, which will cost more money too! If you are moving with friends and family members, try splitting up into groups so that each group has their own cars to transport the belongings in. This way, everyone gets done quicker; if there are two people per car (excluding the driver), then the moving day will get done twice as quickly!


Checking In for Your New Home

Lastly, check-in with your landlord to see what time the office is open and when you can move everything into your new house or apartment. Be sure to arrive at this time so that you don't delay getting finished! First, unload all of your essentials such as kitchenware, toilet items, etc. Once these are unloaded and placed inside of the house - it's moving day complete! Well done, soldier congratulations on a job well done by following our simple military personal checklist. Now go and make yourself some space on those shelves for your books and other important documents from before! Good luck, soldier- keep up those good moves!
