On the day of a move there is a lot going on for both the client and the crew. As the client you should know a timeframe of when the moving crew will show up. This will allow you to plan your morning accordingly so that you have eaten, dressed and pulled aside all the items you need to keep on your person. Once the moving crew shows up, you should greet them make sure you know their names and they know yours. You should then take them through a complete walk through of your home so they have seen the entire job. You may want to ask them if there is anything they need from you. Then all you need to do is get out of their way and relax for a while. If the moving crew is at your home during lunchtime you are not obligated to feed the movers. There is no set protocol; it is up to each client what they feel comfortable doing. Some clients provide a snack, or light lunch for the movers and the crew is always appreciative of that. If you have water and Gatorade available throughout the day that would be helpful to keep the crew hydrated. The end of the day is just as important as the beginning. The crew does a complete walk through of the home to make sure they got everything out of the home they needed to. They also look to make sure there is no damage left by the moving crew. At the end you will most likely have a lot of paperwork to sign, which is crucial to protecting the client. Hopefully now you have a good idea of what to expect on moving day so you can now relax and get moving.
