1. Be There or Have a Representative
You or your representative must be around the entire day to respond to the movers' questions or perhaps do specific tasks to assist in the move, such as signing paperwork. You can ask a trusted and dependable close friend, relative, or neighbor to represent you if you're unable to be onsite. It is advisable to move out of the movers' path, as they possess the expert ability required for the move. Just make sure they can access you whenever they need clarifications or answers.
2. Clear the Route
Walk the route the movers may take from each of the exits to the moving van in advance of their arrival. For example, you can walk from your garage door, front entry, or backyard gate to the moving vehicle. Get rid of all obstructions along with falling hazards on these routes outside and also inside your home. Clear any kids toys, wires, or furniture on each of these routes. Blow away or sweep leaves, dirt, or broken twigs over the paths. Removing all these dangers as well as obstacles ensures movers may move unhampered, even when they cannot see the route ahead of them when they hold large items or move backward. Additionally, make certain there will be ample, convenient parking for the moving truck.
3. Provide the Movers a Tour
Give the professional movers a tour of your residence when they arrive. Indicate things that will need additional care and those which might be tricky to move. Point out if you have a no-pack zone. You can move the things you intend to move yourself to a room or area you are able to secure. If you move them to a room, tape a "Do Not Pack" sign on the shut door.
Show the movers the restrooms they can use. You may also show them where they're able to grab refreshments as well as water. Inform them of all exits to increase their possibilities when moving your belongings to the moving vehicle. You may also show them any dangers they may come across. It's also wise to have another walk through after they have loaded the moving vehicle to make sure they packed all the things.
4. Keep Pets and Youngsters Occupied and Out of the Way
Ensure your youngsters are out of the movers' way as they pack and move your belongings. You might ask a family member, good friend, or neighbor to watch them. In case they shall be at hand, make sure they've got something exciting to do, for example play with toys, coloring books, playing video games, using handheld gadgets, or watching movies. You should keep an eye on the kids, making certain they remain safe.
If you own pets, plan how you'll keep them out of the way. They may escape your property when movers leave the doors or gates open. You should look at boarding your pets for moving day or leave them with a dependable friend, family member, or next door neighbor.
