Whether you’re moving for the first time or are nearly a professional yourself at this point, moving can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Making your relocation smooth and straightforward, especially with peak moving season upon us, takes a lot of planning, preparation, and know-how. This might sound intimidating, but if you take the right steps to plan your move the right way, you’ll be set up for success in no time.
So how can you make your big day go smoothly, and what planning do you need to do to make sure your process is as straightforward as possible? We’ve got the best tips and tricks to set you up for moving success.
When it comes to moving day, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by not only leaving your current home and getting ready for a new one, but also in trying to coordinate yourself, and your movers, and making sure everything is progressing as it should.
Make your moving day easy with these tips to keep yourself, your professional moving crew, and your household items organized and on the right page for your relocation.
This may seem like a silly tip to start with a moving checklist, but you’d be surprised how often relocation crews have to deal with absent clients come moving day.
Even if you’re experiencing an emergency on moving day and have to leave your home and your items, make sure someone reliable and trustworthy is there to help direct your movers the entire day. After all, this is your move and only you know your items best. Make sure someone familiar with your process is there to answer movers’ questions, sign important paperwork, and be there to oversee and coordinate the packing and loading process.
It’s easy to begin your relocation day with a house cluttered with boxes and furniture. However, before you begin moving things out to the truck, go through your home with your movers and point out fragile or important items (plus items you’ll be keeping with you). This will let them load the truck safely and strategically.
Clear a path to allow your movers to move easily throughout the house with heavy items or awkward furniture. Additionally, always do a final walkthrough of your home once you’re done with the moving process to make sure nothing has been left behind.
When you have movers going in and out of the house with heavy furniture and boxes, having kids or pets lost and running around can cause a safety risk to them and your movers. Bring your kids or pets to a friend or family member’s house during moving day, or keep them occupied in separate rooms so that they’re calm, entertained, and out of harm’s way.
After everything has been loaded up onto the truck, make sure to speak with your delivery driver and exchange contact information. This will let your driver not only give you updates on your items’ journey but will ensure that you’re on the same page as far as scheduling and delivery.
