Moving Readiness Checklist

8 Weeks Before Moving Day:

  • Create Your Higher Ground Moving Folder: Keep all your moving papers in one spot. Whether it's receipts or measurements, keep it together in a folder or binder.

  • Furniture Fit Check: Make sure your favorite couch will fit comfortably in your new Oregon home.

  • Mover Research: Look into local moving companies. Give us a call at (541) 316-3155 to see how we can help with anything you may need.

  • Sort and Donate: Decide what you'll bring to your new spot and what can find a new home. Remember, one person's excess could be another's treasure.

6 Weeks Before the Big Day:

  • Book with HGM: Secure your move date with us for a smooth journey to your new home.

  • Gather Supplies: It's time to stock up on boxes and packing tape. We sell both!

  • Pack Non-Daily Items: Start boxing up those knick-knacks and out-of-season gear.

  • Room-by-Room Labeling: Make unpacking a breeze by labeling boxes with their destination room.

  • Change of Address: Start the process of changing your address. You don't want to miss any mail with views of Mount Hood on the postcard, do you?

4 Weeks Out:

  • Confirm Details: Make sure everything is set for your move with HGM.

  • Set Up Your New Utilities: Get your new place in Oregon ready with water, power, and internet so it's all set up when you arrive.

2 Weeks to Go:

1 Week Before Moving:

  • Final Pack: Everything should be boxed up except for the essentials.

  • Furniture Prep: Get larger pieces ready to go. If you need a hand, HGM can help with disassembly.

  • Appliance Prep: Make sure your appliances are ready to move, according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • Moving Readiness Checklist: Be sure to have gone over the moving readiness checklist and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to call. We look forward to answering any questions you may have.

Moving Day with Higher Ground:

  • Meet the Crew: Our friendly HGM team will do the heavy lifting, so you don't have to.

  • Final Checks: Do one last walkthrough of your old place to make sure nothing's left behind.

  • Relax: Let us take the lead. Your job is to look forward to your new Oregon home.

After You've Arrived:

  • Essentials First: Unpack the necessities so you're comfortable from day one.

  • Unpack Methodically: Take it one box at a time, no rush.
