Things To Do Before Your Movers & Packers Arrive

You have selected a professional mover and packer company to help you with the process of moving from one house to another. However, your task does not end her. In fact your top priority should be to have certain things pre-arranged before the mover and packers’ team arrive at your home. We have listed them down for you.

1. Let go of useless things

Having the professional packers pack things which you won’t even use again is to waste time and money. Remember, your total weight of shipment has a significant role in determining the price you will pay in the end. Hence, it is recommended to keep things you consider as ‘non-essential’ or ‘irrelevant’ separate. They shouldn’t bother you to be moved to your new place. In this way you can fit in all the necessary things without consuming much space and therefore spending less.

2. Avoid carrying things which can hinder your relocation process

There are certain goods that can put your relocation operation in danger. It is better to be safe, always. For instance, professional packers and movers don’t allow harmful elements like corrosives and flammable items. These also include sharp weapons and ammunition, also paint, fluids and chemicals.

3. Create a checklist

A checklist that enlists all your inventories that are going to be loaded into the moving truck will help you check the delivered things against the checklist to identify any missing or damaged material. If anything goes wrong, you can file a damage claim with your mover or an insurance claim with your insurance company.

Bonus Packing Tips For A Smooth Transit

Your moving day is decided. You’re excited, but in that process it should not happen that you tend to lose your focus. So when to start packing? If you’re not sure about it, know that the earlier you start packing, the better it is. As a thumb rule, we highly recommend to start packing as soon as your date is fixed, well in advance. It’s because many tend to underestimate the time it will take to pack up all the things you want to take to your new home. Here are some tips to make your moving process smooth and hassle free.

Which things to pack first?

Logic says that you should start with the things that you use very rarely. So going by that logic, you should first start with your attic, closet, garage and other such places which you don’t frequent often. This is in line with the idea of packing up all the non-essential things prior to getting your hands on the essential things that you use every day. In this way, you won’t forget to take along everything that is necessary with you.

Which things to pack last?

Here, you concentrate on the things that you use most frequently. These are the items you should pack in the end.

Tip – Keep aside the things you cannot live without for a day and huddle them in separate boxes. These boxes will also hold your important papers and documents. Hence, don’t entrust these to people you don’t know even the moving company you have hired, however reliable and reputable it be.
