If you want a stress-free move and even enjoy the experience of moving day, you will want to be as prepared as possible. Nothing will add to your anxiety more than running around and chasing your tail the morning of moving day. Trying to get everything done at the last minute while people are waiting will only stress everyone out.
Here are a few ways that you can be ready on moving day and not cause any additional stress to you and your movers.
Have a deadline for packing all your items
Everyone in the house should understand the deadline for having the house packed up and ready to go. Sure, you’ll have those last-minute items that you need the night before and the morning of your move. But the majority of everything that is going with you should be packed. We suggest having a little bit of cushion on your time by having a deadline of two days before moving day. That will give you some wiggle room.
Get up early and be ready for the movers
We know one item you won’t pack ahead of time and that’s the coffee machine so set up that coffee the night before and have it ready. Everyone in the house should be awake and dressed and ready to greet the movers. Because guess what? When your moving crew shows up, they want to get right to work. So, get up early, be ready, and have a smile on your face!
Last minute surprises can be stressful on moving day
Another way that you could throw moving day into chaos is to spring last-minute surprises on the moving crew and others. When your moving professionals show up, they already have a game plan and are ready to execute that plan in your home. It’s important that you do not spring any last-minute surprises which could delay your move and even cost you money.
