 Preparing for the Professional Moving Company’s Arrival

When you book a professional mover, you may think that your job is done. The truth is that there are a few things you should do before the movers arrive to make moving day all that much easier and stress free.

Top Preparation Tips:

Clean and tidy –Ensure that laundry, dishes, tools and other items are packed away. Moving is a lot easier when there’s little mess and clutter.

Organize and clear out – Go through your belongings and choose to store, recycle or donate. Not only is this a great way to downsize, but you may also make a quick buck from any items you sell.

Pack personal items – When preparing for a professional moving company, ensure that you have packed any personal items such as medicines/toiletries, electronics, chargers, books, work stuff and jewelry. Please keep these items with you at all times.

Organize and label rooms – Have all items from each room packed away and labeled to save any confusion when it’s time to unpack. This also makes it easier for the professional movers to understand which box belongs in each room.

Mark boxes that contain unique or fragile items – Whether it’s a truly valuable vintage record player, or an old music box that has more sentimental value than collector value, labeling your boxes will prompt the movers to handle with care.
