The Detailed Plan to Make Your Move Less Stressful 

Weeks Before Moving Day 

  • Declutter: Sort through your belongings. Sell or unload goods you no longer need. 
  • Organize: Pack non-essential items first. Label boxes for easy unpacking
  • Notify: Inform relevant parties about your change of address, such as utilities and subscriptions. 

A Week Before Moving 

  • Essentials Box: Pack a separate box with essentials – toiletries, a change of clothes, important documents, snacks, and chargers. 
  • Confirm Logistics: Reconfirm moving arrangements with the moving company or helpers. 

The Day Before Moving 

  • Final Check: Ensure everything is packed, labeled, and ready to go. 
  • Utilities: Take final meter readings and ensure everything is turned off. 

Moving Day Schedule 

  • Early Start: Start early to give yourself enough time. 
  • Room by Room: Begin with one room at a time. Pack and label boxes accordingly. 
  • Loading: Coordinate with movers or friends to load the items systematically. 

What to Keep Handy 

  • Essentials Box: This should be easily accessible and should contain items for immediate needs. 
  • Tool Kit: Keep basic tools handy for any last-minute adjustments or dismantling. 
  • Emergency Contacts: Keep a list of important contacts handy, like the moving company, friends, or family. You never know what might happen during the move! 

Managing Unforeseen Challenges 

  • Flexibility: Be prepared for unexpected changes and adapt accordingly. 
  • Backup Plan: Have a contingency plan in case of any delays or issues. 

Additional Tips 

Because moving day can be unpredictable, here are some additional recommendations to make the process go more smoothly: 

  • Stay Hydrated and Energized: Moving is physically demanding, so keep water and snacks available. 
  • Take Breaks: Don’t push yourself too hard. Take breaks to avoid burnout. 
  • Stay Positive: It’s a new episode in your life! Stay positive throughout the process. 
  • Protect Valuables: For added security, keep important documents, jewelry, and valuables with you rather than in the moving truck. 
  • Pets and Kids: If you have pets or children, make plans to keep them safe and stress-free on moving day. 
  • Post-Move Essentials: Pack a separate box with items you’ll need immediately upon arriving at your new place, such as bedding, a shower curtain, and some basic kitchen items. 
  • Check the New Place: Before unloading, do a quick walkthrough of your new home to ensure it’s in the expected condition and to plan where furniture and boxes will go.

What Our Clients Say

These were the most professional and hardworking guys!! We could not have had a more pleasurable move!! Definitely the best moving company out there


Great experience from start to finish! Booking process was smooth and simple. Heath did a great job contacting us prior and even gave us a special surprise the night before. Guys were extremely nice and professional. Took care of items as if they were their own. Would absolutely recommend 10/10


All the guys were excellent to work with.They were respectful, strong, and went the extra mile for my difficult move into a 4 level historic home…with winding staircases…in the rain…Thorough and truly seemed to care. Great team!


We love Pink Zebra Movers! They were thoughtful, friendly and professional. They showed they cared about our furniture. As a Realtor, I have heard plenty of horror stories. Pink Zebra made the whole process very stress-free. I will only recommend them to my clients from now on.


I cannot speak highly enough of Heath and his team. The guys were all professional, on time and super fast. They handled our belongings like their own and were very careful. Another great thing is our driveway isn't the easiest to get a big truck up and down and they were able to do it no problem
