Start packing. Keep an inventory list. Mark each box with its destination room (e.g. kitchen).

List the items to take with you personally. Include all jewellery, passports and other valuable items.

Collect all keys for the house for the new owners (don’t forget garage and shed keys).

Check inventory for number of boxes – break down by room

Verify that the utilities have been turned on and meters have been read

Get to the house before the movers. Arrange snacks and drinks with you. It will be a long day.
