Hi *|FNAME|*,

One of the most important components of a successful move is preparation. That's why we want to share with you these 7 things to do before the movers arrive.

7 Tasks To Be Prepared For Movers


1. Get Rid Of Everything You're Not Moving

Before the movers arrive, make sure any items you wish not to move are either gotten rid of or put aside so the movers know not to move them.

2. Pack Early

If you’re packing yourself, it’s best to start packing as soon as possible. You likely have more stuff than you realize, so make sure you start packing as early as possible to avoid having to do everything on one day.

3. Gather And Move Your Small Valuables Yourself

Even before you hire a moving company, it’s very important to gather all jewelry, cash, small electronics, and other valuable items and put them in a safe place. Movers have no liability when it comes to these items. It’s your responsibility to make sure all your valuables are gathered up and taken with you.

4. Make Plans For Children & Pets On Moving Day

The last thing you want is kids or animals running around getting in the way of the movers. This is very unsafe for everyone involved in the move. Make sure you’ve lined up a babysitter or pet sitter for move day.

5. Be There and Available On Moving Day

One of the most important things to do is to be there on moving day. You’re not required to do any of the moving, but when the crews have any questions about the placement of items or other various things, you or somebody needs to be there to answer these questions.

6. Prepare For The Movers Arrival

To actually prepare for the arrival of the movers, you’ll need to make sure all your items are packed and ready to be moved. You’ll also need to make sure your sprinklers are off, there is available parking for the moving truck, and the pathways are clear.

7. Prepare Your Appliances

In most situations, unless we have already accepted this as our responsibility, it’s your responsibility to disconnect and reconnect any washers and dryers on move day. It is also your duty to unplug your refrigerator and freezers 24 hours before the move.

We hope this helps with you get ready for your move. If you have any moving related questions, feel free to give us a call anytime.
