Within the week before you move, you should make sure that all the items that you want the movers to take are labeled and organized. The items that you are moving yourself should be separated. Have your checklist handy, so you can keep track of where everything is. Once again, confirm all your arrangements with your moving company. This is the time to start taking apart furniture that needs to be moved in pieces. You’ll also want to unplug and defrost your fridge and freezer. Make sure you have all the house’s paper work in order. Finish packing and labeling.
Moving day can be very hectic, so keep the following in mind. When the movers arrive, cooperate with and assist them. If you can’t be there, have some one that you trust be with the movers. Pack up any last minute items. Make sure you have all the moving company’s paper work in hand. You should also make sure that the movers have your phone number(s) and you have theirs, so that you can keep in contact with your belongings during its transit. Get out your checklist and do a final check of your packed belongings and the house to make sure you haven’t forgotten or missed anything. Make sure that the movers have taken everything they are supposed to take. Then, gather everything you’re taking yourself and check that you have everything. Give all keys, documents, and any other necessary information from your home to the new owners or real estate agent. Do a final check of your house. Make sure everything’s turned off, and you’re on your way to your new home.
