Make sure that there is a clear pathway for the movers to carry your belongings safely to the truck. Put down sand or ice melt so there is no ice on the walkway, this could cause injuries to the movers and damage to your belongings. Make sure the moving truck is able to get to your home and has a place to park.

Protect Your Home
