Packing and moving is a stressful business and you always need to do your best to make sure that everything is going in an order. If you want to lower your stress and save your time then you should do some important things before the professional movers and packers arrive.
Here are the 10 things to do before movers and packers arrive:
Create a list of the items:
First of all, create a list of the items you want to be packed and moved by professional packers and movers. With this, you will get to know how many things you’re going to move.
Separate all of the useless items that you don’t want anymore. Paying for the packing and moving of the useless items is the waste of money and time. So, be sure that there is no useless thing.
Separate Items you want to move yourself:
There can be some items that you want to pack and move yourself because you don’t feel safe to hand over those items to the Movers & Packers because of any reason. You should separate those items from other items.
Label your items:
It is a good idea to make some labels for your items. So, when packers pack your items you’ll put a label on the packed items. This will help you to recognize the items when you arrive at your destination.
The items you want to pack and move; move them to one room and put a label on the door (No-Pack Zone). This label will help packers and movers to know that you don’t want them to pack and move these items.
You should clean your house before the professional movers arrive. Put all the useless items out of your house. This will help them to do their job easily without getting interrupted by useless items.
Take pictures or videos of all the items that packers and movers are going to move. This will help you as evidence if something goes missing or wrong or if they damage something.
Pack small items:
If you don’t have enough time or want to save your time then it is a good idea to pack small items yourself before packers and movers arrive. You can save a big amount of time by packing small items yourself.
Move items to one room:
Move all the items you want to be moved by professional movers to one room before they arrive. This will help in packing and moving items easily and you don’t have to go from rooms to rooms to get the items.
Measure your doors:
Furniture is fragile and it can get damaged easily. You should measure your furniture and doors, with this you will get the idea that how furniture will pass through the doors and this will help you take out furniture easily without any damage.
