Your Moving Home Checklist

Moving home can seem like a daunting task with so many aspects to consider, but with careful planning it doesn’t need to be overwhelming. We’ve put together a moving home checklist to help you keep track of essential tasks and make your move as stress-free as possible. Follow our tips and you can spend less time thinking about what needs to be done in your old home, and more time day dreaming about life in your beautiful new home!

Set a Date

The first step when planning a move is to pick your moving date. Take into account when your new home will be ready, when your current home needs to be vacated and make sure to allow yourself enough time to execute the move smoothly and without having to rush.

Arrange Professional Cleaning

Now you have a moving out date, arrange for your current home to be professionally cleaned as soon as you move out. This will save you the time, energy and stress of having to clean the house yourself after a tiring move.

Book Your Removalist

If you’re doing the move yourself then now is the time to arrange a hire truck. If you’re using professional movers, then ask them to estimate the number of boxes you might have to help you organise your packing materials. 

Keep, Chuck, Donate

It’s time to get sorting! Go through your home room by room and decide what you’ll be keeping and what you no longer need. Valuable items can be sold, whilst old clothes, toys and books can be donated to family, friends or charity. Be strict with yourself – moving into your beautiful, newly-built home is an opportunity to start fresh without a lifetime of unnecessary papers, broken crockery or never-worn clothes to clutter up your living space.

Pack Smart

As well as collecting or ordering packing boxes, make sure to get packing tape and marker pens so boxes can be properly labelled. A few weeks before the move you can start packing things which are unlikely to be needed such as seasonal clothes, books and non-essential kitchen items. Dismantle any furniture that isn’t used regularly and tape small parts, screws and cords to the item to ensure they can’t be lost.

Pack a ‘First Day’ Bag

In the last few days before you move, pack an overnight bag for the big day with all the essentials you need to make the day run smoothly. Include a change of clothes, toiletries, chargers, medicines, entertainment for the kids and make sure to take lots of snacks to keep your energy up over a long day!

The Big Day

This is it! Empty your fridge and freezer into an Esky, collect together all keys for doors, gates, garage etc. and leave them in an obvious place and then you’re done! Organise unpacking at your new home by allocating people different tasks. Plan ahead for lunch and dinner, whether you pre-make meals or choose a local café to grab a quick bite between moving boxes. It’ll be a big day but at the end of it you get to spend your first night in your beautiful new home!

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

L & M King

We would just like to say a massive thank you once again for all your help with the house. We moved in on the weekend and we are loving it ! So thank you for being part of the team that made our dream come true.

Belinda, Jordan Springs, Acacia 4 Urban

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

Debbie & Brian - Jordan Springs 

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

Tim & Kara - Flinders

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH. 

D.E, Marsden Park 

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -

Monika & Mayur, Elara
