This article will explain the various steps that you will need to take in order to make sure your plan is the best that it can be.

What you need

The first step in making a good plan is knowing what you need to do. This will mean that you will need to look at the specifics of your move. Knowing where everything that you want to bring with you on your move is, is key to making sure that your plan covers everything. Knowing what you need to do is very important as it ensures that nothing is missed. This will not only include tasks, it will also include items that you will need such as tape and cardboard boxes.

When you need to do it

Once you know what you need you will want to decide when you are doing it. The first thing to do when deciding this is figure out when you are moving. This will serve as a deadline which will inform how much time you will have to finish everything. Once you know you deadline you will need to look at your schedule up until the move and see when you have time free. Using this information, you will want to split all of the tasks that you need to do over this time. Make sure that you have a rough idea of how long each task is going to take, leaving a buffer in case it takes longer than you had expected.

Who is doing it

If you are moving house with other people, it is important that you work out who is doing what. In doing that you will be able to make sure that the work is split evenly between everyone. This will mean that all of the work gets done by the right people and that no one is working harder than anybody else. This will help to maintain morale, which will make everyone work better. It will also avoid a lot of different issues. One such issue is tasks being left undone from people assuming that someone else will do it. When working out who is doing what, you will want to assign people jobs that they are suited to so that everything is done as efficiently as possible. There is no point in assigning the heavy lifting to the smallest or weakest member of the group

Write it down

Throughout this process you will want to make sure that your plan is recorded somewhere. This could be done either digitally or physically on paper. Recording everything means that you can track your progress and will allow you to ensure that everything is going to plan. You may think that you can remember everything about the plan, but the risk that you will miss or forget something is not worth it when recording your plan is so easy.
