Simplifying The Moving Process
  • Be present at all times during the moves. Movers often have questions that only you can answer.
  • Make sure you're there so no time is wasted and nothing is left to chance. - Carefully read and fill out the Bill Of Laden, this being the legal agreement between you and your moving company.
  • Do a final check of your home to make sure nothing was left behind.
  • Supply contact information (cell phone usually works best) to the movers in case any complications arise. - Make sure the movers have your new address / directions to get there.
  • Provide water and restroom facilities for your movers - this is just common courtesy.
  • Separate anything that the movers will not be taking (perhaps an outfit, portable music device, etc). This way there is no confusion as to whether it should be taken with everything else.
  • Anything of exceptional value, monetary or personal (jewelry, photos, etc) should be taken separately with you, or mailed to your new home using a service that provides tracking capabilities (FedEx, UPS).
  • Give at least a day or two between when you're planning the move and when the new tenants will be moving into your existing home. Complications can arise, so this will help give you a cushion in case things have to be pushed back.
  • Get a full night's rest prior to the move. You'll need your energy for this process.
  • Have the dedicated funds for the move set aside: in cash, certified check, or money order. This is something that needs to be prepared before the moving process begins. If using a credit card, make the necessary arrangements with your movers so that there's no chance of a problem come moving day.
  • As your items are being delivered / unpacked, check for any possible damages - and if found make a note to point them out to your movers after the delivery is complete.
  • Be present during this entire process: packing, loading, and unloading.
