Use Peachtree Movers Moving Checklist To Make Your Next Move a Breeze.

We Love Moving! With our checklist you will too. Our checklist is specifically designed for use with the excellent, on time service of Peachtree Movers. Sure you can use it with other moving companies but your results may vary. 

Here are our favorite tips (even the obvious ones) for you in one handy checklist:

  • Unplug all appliances and electronics that are moving. Have a plumbing professional disconnect washers, dryers and water lines from refrigerators.
  • Label boxes on top and sides clearly. Use new boxes for heavy items (they have more strength and integrity).
  • Have clearly defined names for bedrooms such as Master, Daughter’s Room, Bobby’s room and make sure boxes are labeled with their destination.
  • Change your address here is the link to the official USPS site.
  • Get medical, vet and school records in order.
  • Order new utilities and disconnect current ones.
  • Take apart outdoor furniture and playhouses (Not feeling handy? We can do this for you, call for a quote).
  • Figure out meals for the day of and days surrounding your move (pizza?)
  • Make a “Do Not Move” box and this is where items you will need to survive in your new home should go. Pack all prescriptions, toiletries, clothes for several days, pet food, contacts and other necessities. Act as though you are going on a trip for several days and pack accordingly.
  • Make arrangements for pets and children on moving day (you will have less worries if they are not underfoot and in harm’s way).
  • Pack personal valuables like jewelry, watches, wallets, cash and check books and transport in your vehicle.
  • Use up as much of your refrigerated foods prior to move day (get a cooler for the rest).

Getting ready for moving day is exciting. Let us take some of the stress out of your move by helping you get and stay organized with our checklist. To take the rest of your stress out of your move call Peachtree Movers for a quick, accurate quote at 404-355-8877 or visit us at for more information.

Are There Things I Shouldn’t Pack For A Move?

Peachtree Movers Can Move Anything! Almost. There are a few items we know will be better off if they stay with you, and items that we just can’t transport. Here is the Peachtree Movers list of what not to pack for moving day.


Of particular note are volatile or otherwise sensitive chemicals. This is always important but perhaps most vital to take note of this during the warmer months. Keep them in the cabin of your car, and not in the trunk. This also goes for:

• Nail Polish Remover
• Pesticides
• Motor Oil
• Ammunition
• Batteries
• Cleaning Fluids
• Fertilizer
• Bleach

Volatile chemicals may be best dealt with by recycling them or giving them to a friend.


Some people are just as attached to their plants as they are to their pets and they need to carry them wherever they go. While we are as careful with plants as with any other of your belongings, we must tell you that if something happens to your plant, there is not much that can be done if the plant perishes. So, we advise that you carry your plants with you in a separate vehicle. The plants will likely do better in an open car than in the back of our luxurious moving truck, and you will be happier knowing that your precious living friends are picked up and placed down precisely where you desire.


If you have artwork or televisions, we need to caution you when attempting to move them. Special boxes for artwork are recommended and televisions should be packed in their original packing material. Let us know how you wish to proceed with these items and we will take care of you.


If you have items that are of extreme sentimental value or not replaceable it is highly recommended that you transport these items yourself. Examples would be money, jewelry, heirlooms, coins, high value artwork, etc.


These are items that you want to transport yourself as well. Please be sure that you empty your gun safes before we move them.

That’s it. We can move just about anything else and enjoy recounting stories of some of the crazy things we've been asked to move in staff meetings. Call Peachtree Movers today to schedule your next move or to get a free quote 404-355-8877.
