Moving crews offer you these pieces of advice
Professional movers have seen quite a bit if they’ve been in the business for any length of time. They are in many cases in a different home almost every day of the week and have seen all kinds of moving preparation from families.
They also know what it takes to have a stress-free move. Both for you and for the entire moving crew.
While there are many aspects of a move leading up to the actual moving day, when it comes to the day of your move, it should be as easy as you can make it. So our movers have a little advice as you prepare for when the moving truck pulls up to your home.
Leave as much time possible for packing
You should not be in a situation where you were actually packing on moving day. While you may want to leave a few things out for the kids such as video games and other items to keep them busy, the majority of your packing should have been done well in advance. If you are packing more than a few things on moving day, you are going to be racing against the clock and that can only lead to stress for you, your family and the moving crew.
If you find yourself well in advance thinking that you just can’t possibly get everything in your home pack in time, a very smart move is to ask your moving company if they offer professional packing services. Yes you will need to spend a little more money on your move, but it will be well worth it in the long run.
Label every box
Moving day will be so much easier if you take the time to label all your boxes well packing. It will be easier for the moving crew as they will know exactly where those boxes need to go at your new destination. And labeling boxes will save you hours of stress and headaches trying to figure out where those boxes belong in the days after your move. Our experts recommend being as detailed as possible, even color code your boxes.
Let the movers do their job
You hired professional movers for a reason. So let them do what you hired them to do. They do this every day, and most moving companies have a system with trained professionals. They get to a home and they know exactly what needs to be done. So let them do it. You can always be there to guide them and to be available for any questions they may have. Aside from that, stay a safe distance, sit back and relax.
Have a plan for children and pets
Once the moving crew gets started in your home, it can be a machine. Your movers are handling heavy furniture, multiple boxes and they can’t always see what’s in front of them or around the corner. To keep everyone safe, make sure you have a plan for where your children will stay on moving day and keep your pets at a safe distance. Everyone on our crew loves pets and we are happy to see them, but an excited dog could cause problems if left unwatched on moving day. Keep everyone safe and have a plan.
