Moving Out Reminders for the Procrastinator

Moving out is something we will all do at some point in our lives, and for some of us it’s so much easier to leave packing and cleaning to the last minute possible. Developing a type of moving out checklist is going to help make the process go quicker, as you need it to.

When moving out of an old apartment or house and into a new one, there are a lot of things to figure out. One of the key factors here is to look at the checklist of essentials that you have to get done first. Knowing which comes first is a matter of knowing which will take longest, and which you can do yourself versus have someone else complete for you.


Cleaning the place before you leave the key behind is one of the biggest parts of the process, especially if you want to get all of your deposit back. Don’t give your landlord any reason to withhold any of that deposit money, and make sure to do as much as you can to keep your place as clean and tidy as possible when you leave it. Now, there are a lot of things that play a part in this, and you’re going to need to get this right as much as possible.

One of the best ways of dealing with this is to make sure you check out one-time cleaning options, which would give you the time you need to pack without having to leave extra time at the end for deep cleaning. 


When you have arranged for a professional cleaning service to come in and make sure the place is spotless you need to plan your next move. It is important to make sure you think about the best ways of improving your packing options, and this is something to consider. 

Packing is important, and you’ll want to get your things out of the apartment before the cleaning company arrives. Sort out your packing priorities, or just pack everything away as quickly as possible when the time comes.

You need to make sure you spend your time wisely in order to get out by that deadline. Think about what is going to take the longest for you to pack, or what should be packed carefully, and spend time on those first.

Take Care of the Essentials

There are so many elements to keep in mind, such as changing your address, making sure you don’t forget anything at home, and leaving the property in the best possible condition. Oh – that reminds me. Make sure to pack up for your dog and cat as well. Also, arrange a comfortable pet transport so they can be have a comfortable ride to their new home.

Packing and moving can be a stressful experience, and aside from packing as quickly as possible, remember that you don’t have to clean if you call a cleaning company to run through the house or apartment for you. Make sure you focus on coming up with some of the best techniques that will help make this less stressful, and ensuring it is clean and tidy before moving out is one of the key things.
