How Should I Prepare for Movers?
As you gear up for a big move, whether residential or commercial, you want it to go off without a hitch. You’ve done all of the necessary steps before the big day arrives, like hiring a team of movers, filling out change-of-address forms, and getting the keys to the new space. However, you may wondering if there’s anything else that you can accomplish before moving day, like preparing for the movers. Do you need to section things off? Should you label everything? Here’s a helpful rundown of what should be done in preparation:
Coordinate & Communicate
Maybe you initially hired your moving company weeks (or even months!) ago and went over details then. However, as the big day draws closer, it’s a good idea to double-check things like the date and time they’re arriving and what—if any—supplies they’ll be providing. This should be listed in a contract that you received at the time, whether physical or virtual, but you should give your movers a call if you don’t have any paperwork from them.
Organize Your Belongings
A successful move should operate like a well-oiled machine. To make sure this happens, you’ll want to organize and sort everything in your home or office—this can include stacking boxes, pushing everything into one corner or the middle of the room, and having disassembled pieces packaged together. Try not to have anything blocking doorways, hallways, or stairs. This way, it’s easy for your movers to access each room and is clear to them exactly what items need to be moved.
Keep Kids & Pets Away
If you’re preparing for a residential move and you have small kids or pets, it’s probably best to keep them at a family or friend’s house. With movers going in and out of your home and you focused on the move, things can get crazy or distracting. Because of this, you don’t want one of your human or fur babies wandering outside or getting hurt amid the chaos, so it’s best to arrange ahead of time to have them spend the day elsewhere.
Have Some Fuel Handy
In the preparation of moving, you’ve probably already emptied out your fridge and pantry. However, it might be helpful to keep a few water bottles and granola bars handy to provide to your movers. While this isn’t necessary, it will certainly be appreciated by them—especially if you’re moving during a hotter part of your year!
