Planning a move? Don’t know where to start? We put together the mother of all sample checklists for moving to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Update: since writing this post, we’ve built an actual checklist tool for planning and executing your move – to San Francisco or elsewhere. Check out Teleport Zen – and let us know what you think!

We want to make sure you’re organized and informed about services, companies and ideas that will come in handy when making your move. In this one, we focused on the Bay Area – even if you’re not actually moving there, we’re positive you’ll get a few great ideas out of this list regardless of your real destination.

Moving can be scary simply because of the sheer amount of tasks to stay on top of and things to remember. Teleport for Startup Cities is not about only finding your optimal place to be – we want to do that and help you actually get to your destination involving as little hassle as possible.

Have a look and make sure you stick around until the end of the list for a printable version in case you’re a pen and paper kind of person!

We’d love to hear from you – did you find this checklist useful? Is there anything you would like us to add or change? Let us know at!
