Printable Moving Checklist
At ASAP Movers, we know that planning a move can be a daunting task, so we have prepared the following moving checklist to help you prepare!
One Month Before Moving Day:
[ ] Contact ASAP Movers for a free moving estimate and book your moving day. Our Denver movers provide an unsurpassable moving experience. If you are planning a move in the summer, you may wish to call our movers up two months in advance to ensure availability on your desired moving day. Last minute plans? Give us a call and we will do our best to provide you service in a timely manner.
[ ] Order moving boxes and packing supplies unless you plan to have ASAP Movers pack you for your full service or over the road move.
[ ] Begin packing. Clearly label boxes with name, contents, and destination for the box (For more information on packing services, please visit our packing page.)
