How do I prepare for my moving day?

Good planning is very important to ensure that the transition to the new house goes as smoothly as possible. In addition, it allows you to keep double burdens to a minimum. By moving as close to the time of key transfer as possible, you don’t have to spend too much time in the boxes and you have enough time to leave the old house in a tidy condition.

The best preparation for a moving day

Take the time to pack your things and put everything in moving boxes for each room separately. If you use the coloured labels from our moving kit, the movers can easily see where things should go in the new house.


1 day prior to your move

  • Say goodbye to your neighbours and inform them about the moving day.
  • Defrost and clean the refrigerator.
  • Defrost and clean the freezer.
  • Run the washing machine at 90 degrees without laundry. This will get rid of soap and limescale residues and prevents an unpleasant smell during possible storage.
  • Disassemble furniture.
  • Reserve a (parking) spot for the moving van and, if necessary, request a ‘neighbour card’ from Jan de Jong.
  • Pack the last items.
  • Remove bedroom curtains.
  • Store keys in the red keybox.
  • Store money and debit cards separately in handheld luggage.
  • We will send you a reminder by e-mail or text about the exact time of arrival and other details, one day before the move.

Moving day

  • Check the house for left behind items.
  • Record meter readings.
  • Shut off gas and electricity if necessary.
  • Drain the water pipe.
  • Close windows and doors.
  • Hand over the keys of the old house.
  • Is a parking permit required on the moving day? Let us know in time and we will arrange it for you.
