Leading Up to Moving Day

Moving day is finally here! But before you start packing up your home, make sure to take a few important steps. Clean up any messes you make – it’ll go a long way in speeding up the move. Arrange for boxes and furniture to be delivered early in the morning, so they can be packed and moved later that day.

With a little bit of preparation, moving day will go much smoother. Thanks for reading!

Should I empty drawers before moving a dresser?

Do you know the rules of packing a moving truck? Before anything else, make sure to empty all the drawers in your dresser and put everything away neatly. This will avoid any damage during the move – which is obviously much more pleasant for everyone involved! If you’re moving by yourself, it’s best to pack as many items as possible into boxes. Once you have enough, consider hiring a professional movers or packing team. They will take care of loading and unloading the truck while you relax at home. And last but not least: always remember to photograph each item before putting it into one of the moving boxes! Doing so will make unpacking much easier when you get back home later on.

Am I supposed to help or direct the movers?

Moving day is truly an emotional roller coaster ride. On the one hand, you are excited to start your new life in the new home. However, on the other hand, you are also nervous and apprehensive about all of the moving preparations that need to be made. It is important to coordinate your moving date with your Edmonton movers in order to avoid any potential complications. If for some reason you can’t make it home during the move, make arrangements for someone else to take care of pets and belongings. And lastly – brace yourself for a long day!

What should I do if my movers are late?

If your movers are late, don’t panic. Just relax and wait for them. Make sure you have a clear idea of what is included in your move – packing, unpacking etc. Follow their instructions to the letter on how to pack and unpack your belongings – it will make the process go much smoother! If they still don’t arrive after an hour or so, contact the moving company and ask them to come back. In any case, always keep track of the day’s events by keeping a diary or recording all conversations with movers/the moving companies in advance as evidence should anything happen later on that seems questionable

Should I tip the mover, if so, how much?

It is always a good idea to get moving paperwork signed and dated in advance, so there are no any last-minute surprises on moving day. Likewise, it’s up to the mover as to what constitutes a tip – 10-15% should suffice for the average move. If you have any special requests (like having boxes stacked in a particular way), let the mover know in advance so they can accommodate you accordingly. Always be sure to write down your tips – after all, who knows when you’ll need them again!

Lastly, make a list of all the items you’ll need for your move – from boxes and furniture to pots and plants. Then, pack them accordingly, based on the number of items each box will hold. Move day will be a lot less stressful that way!
