All Items Packed
Please make sure everything is packed and ready to be moved by the time your move team arrives. This will help ensure that your move goes as quickly and efficiently as possible. Even if you can only fit a couple of larger items in a box, it still makes them easier and quicker to move. Unpacked items are the leading cause of moves going over the estimated cost.
Handy Items Box
Pack a “handy items box” or two for your first night and day in your new home. Have them well labeled and mention them to the movers so they know to keep track of them during the move. It should include scissors, utility knife, cups, paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, snacks, beverages, soap, pens and paper, tape, bath towels, trash bags, toiletries, sponge and cleaning supplies.
Have all walkways inside and out cleared of clutter, not doing so will lead to your moving team maneuver around obstacles which will take additional time. Please take pictures, art, mirrors, and any hanging objects off of the walls.
Conduct a final walk-through with your moving team to ensure no items are left behind. Inspect the basement, attic, all closets, and garage. Be sure to lock your windows and doors.
Please be Available
Throughout your move, have someone available to answer any questions and let your move team know where to place your belongings.
