How to make your professional move easier

How to make your professional move easier

Finally, your moving day is here, and you get a knock at the door. It’s the movers, and they are ready to go! Some might want to watch the movers to ensure everything goes as planned.  You might watch for damages like scratched hardwood or scuffed walls; however, that can make your experience more stressful. We recommend keeping yourself busy during your move and trying to stay clear of the movers. To save on hours and make a move more efficient, you can do a couple of things before and during your moving day.

Here are some ways to make your move more accessible for everyone.

Pack Ahead

It’s an excellent idea to pack as much as you can before moving day. Organize everything into boxes and keep room items together if possible. Label all boxes with details and their appropriate destination.  This will make it easy for the movers to know precisely what’s in each box and where to put your possessions in your new place. Everyone will appreciate your effort, and you’ll appreciate the hours saved on your final bill.

Take Important Items In Your Vehicle

Even though professional movers always take all precautions to ensure that items aren’t lost or damaged, accidents sometimes happen. For specific items, it might not be worth the risk. Pack smaller, valuable things in your vehicle to prevent accidents or losses.  Examples of this are items like small electronics,  jewelry, artwork or plants.  This strategy will help to prevent added stress.

Have Refreshments

Moving is a tough job for most. All that activity will likely work up a sweat, especially if you move in warmer months. Offering refreshments is an excellent way to show your appreciation for their hard work. Many customers provide snacks like fruit, granola bars and treats to keep everyone fueled up for a long workday.

Let The Movers Move

We highly recommend that you let the movers handle certain items or explain which boxes contain fragile items. Remember that most people don’t like to be micromanaged. Let your movers do their jobs because you hired professional movers for a reason.  If you do some research and hire a reputable moving company, you can trust that they will do a good job.
