All your packing, scheduling, and organizing the house movers has finally brought you to the big day itself – moving day, but the fun isn’t over yet. While uprooting your life presents many challenges, these moving day tips should help keep everything going smoothly.
1. Set Aside import items
There are always going to be items you set aside to take in the car with you. Also, keep your important documents, delicate and valuable to one side and ensure that there’s no chance of misplacing or damaging them.
2. Provide Refreshments for the Moving Team
Lugging heavy furniture about is hard work, so make sure to keep refreshments readily available for your house movers such as tea, coffee, cold water, and snacks. They will appreciate your efforts.
3. Keep Kitchen Essentials Items Aside
You will need access to essential items such as things like food for lunch and dinner, baby food, kettle, coffee machine, packed lunches, and cold water to help you get through the day. You are most likely in a rush to get everything done, so this strategy will ensure you aren’t making any last-minute trips to the store that will cost valuable time.
4. Don’t Pack Everything
If you’re traveling a long distance or your move will take a few days, you will need a suitcase with personal items such as a change of clothes and bathroom accessories.
5. Small Items That Belong to Current Property
Make sure your keys, house documents, thermostats, appliances manuals are out of the way so they don’t accidentally end up in a moving box.
6. Identify Things Which Don’t Need to Be Moved and Mark It
Some items should not make it to the truck but can easily be overlooked by busy house movers. Make sure these items are marked with a prominent sticker.
7. Last One in is Usually First One Out
When it’s a large move over a few days, you will want easy access to the essentials when you get to your new location. Things like toasters, kettles, TV and sofas will ensure your first day in your new place is a lot more comfortable.
8. Take a Meter Reading
A bill arriving at your new address charging you for utilities you didn’t use is irritating. Take a meter reading so you can check the accuracy of your last bill. Photo proof will make it easier to verify.
9. Do a Last-Minute Walk Through?
You’d be surprised how many things get left behind during a move, especially in wardrobes, drawers, and garages. Do a last-minute walkthrough of the house to ensure that everything has been transported, and doors and windows are secure.
10. Don’t Hang Around
If you have hired a professional team of movers like Dumonds, then they need you only for the first hour of your move, after you may as well spend the rest or your day reading a book somewhere nice or playing with the kids in the park.
