Relocation: What Should I Do Before My Movers Arrive?

AM Moving Company — June 26, 2019

Moving day is fast approaching, and you want to be sure that the process is as painless as possible.Fortunately, there are many different things you can do to help your movers, so now is the perfect time to create a plan. Also, it’s never too early to start thinking about these things, so whether you’re moving next
week or next month, start planning immediately.

Here’s what you should do before the movers arrive.

Make Sure Everything is Packed Tight

Typically speaking, one of the most significant issues that movers face is when boxes aren’t taped shut or packed correctly. Although the movers are careful with your belongings, it’s easy for items in boxes to shift during the trip, which means that they can get damaged if you’re not careful. If you’re unsure how to pack correctly, you may want to contact the moving company beforehand to see if they offer packing services. This way, you can be sure that everything will be stored neatly and appropriately.

Label Everything

When you arrive at your new place, you don’t want to spend hours sorting through all of your boxes. Label each box by room, providing an itemized list of what’s inside if possible. Also, you may want to consider how your boxes will be loaded into the truck so that priority items are unloaded first.

Clean Anything That Isn’t Boxed

Whether it’s appliances, furniture, or other items that you can’t (or don’t want to) put in a box, you need to make sure that it’s clean before the movers arrive. First, it’s common courtesy to ensure that they don’t have to deal with dusty, sticky, or dirty belongings. Second, cleaning these items will help keep everything else neat
and tidy when unloading the truck.

Consider Insurance

If you’re transporting anything highly valuable, you may want to get mover’s insurance to protect it. Although the moving company will take care of your stuff, things can still get damaged in transit. Make sure you have a policy in place before movers begin packing the truck.
