MOVING DAY TIPS
Your Professional Movers in Washington
Moving Day Checklist
Here is what to do on moving day in order to make it smoother, safer, and easier: Pack up the last of your items (the things you needed during the night and on the morning of move-out day) and check if all the boxes are tightly sealed and clearly labeled. Make sure the items you’re going to need during the trip to your new home and the first couple of days after the move are packed separately – in your essentials box.
Ensure Moving Day Safety
o Remove any obstacles from the corridors and entryway of your home and keep the
path between the front door and the moving truck free of debris and potential hazards;
o Take care of children and pets – Moving day is both stressful and dangerous for kids
and pets – they may get upset and scared by the hectic activities and unknown people
in your home and they may get hurt if they get in the way (or cause someone else to
get hurt). It’s best to ask a family member or a close friend to take your little ones to
their place on the big day or to keep them occupied in a safe and quiet room away
from the moving chaos. If necessary, hire a professional sitter to look after your
children and your animal friends;
o Set aside the items you want to take with you – Put your essentials and valuables
in a separate room, so they don’t get accidentally loaded on the moving truck.
o Take plenty of photos to have proof of the pre-move condition of your items and
visual aids when reassembling furniture and reconnecting appliances after the move.
o Meet the movers – Welcome the moving team when they arrive, review the required
paperwork, show the movers around, provide them with all the necessary information,
and make sure they can easily get to you if they have questions or need assistance.
o Ensure efficiency and positive moving experience
Make sure you have all the essentials for moving day at hand (see below);
o Prepare food for moving day – provide some healthy food and refreshing beverages
to keep everyone’s energy and spirits up on the Big day;
o Ensure good communication with the movers
o Triple check everything – When all your belongings are loaded on the moving truck,
do a final walkthrough of your home to check for forgotten items. Make sure the
movers have the correct address to your new place, get the driver’s name and phone
number and provide him/her with your contact information, and confirm the date and
time when your shipment will be delivered.
o Ensure the good condition of your old home – Check for damages, give your old
home a good cleaning, and lock all the doors and windows before leaving your old
house or apartment for the last time.
