As efficient, experienced professionals, good movers work quickly and smoothly and have well-established systems for packing and moving coordination. As the customer, however, you still need to be around to oversee the move, offering instructions and answering questions.
Before the movers arrive, pack any personal items you may need during the move and in the first few days at your new home. Remember to include toiletries, medication, snacks, pet equipment, and important records and documents. You may also want to pack small valuables and move them yourself.
When the movers arrive, double-check the moving plans with them, making note of the condition of your furniture and other items and ensuring that they know what your wishes are. Go over the paperwork carefully, ensuring that you have read and approved its provisions before signing, and oversee the movers as they load your possessions. Good movers work quickly and carefully, but keep an eye out for any potential trouble as they go.
Moving is hard work, so be prepared to offer your movers water, beverages, and snacks, especially if the process takes all day. If your move happens during a meal time, offer to buy the crew lunch or dinner.
Before the team leaves, confirm the time they should arrive at your new home, including the date if you are moving long distances, and do a final walkthrough in your home, checking for damage caused by the movers and making sure they have packed all necessary items.
