What to expect on your moving day

Moving day can be a stressful moment in ones life. Getting all your belongs packed and ready will take some effort. Proper planning could be the decider between a smooth move or a chaotic day. So, you might be wondering what to expect on your moving day. It’s a great question and a smart place to start when you’re thinking of relocating. Here are some tips and tricks to consider:

1. Wake up and get some breakfast (you’ll need the energy)

This is very important because without the right amount of energy you could become overwhelmed by the days activity. So get a good night’s sleep and a high protein breakfast. This should be enough to get you through your moving day.

2. Do any last minute packing BEFORE the movers arrive

This is a big one – whether you are paying by the hour or not. On the day of your move, it’s a good idea to walk through your home and make sure that everything is packed and ready to go. Make sure boxes aren’t over-packed and are properly taped. The more organized you are, the easier (and shorter) your moving day will be.

3.Dealing with building management

When moving, it is best to communicate with your super and find out if it’s possible to reserve the elevator for your move. Also, find out where your movers will be entering or exiting the building. Some building have rules about where movers should load or unload when moving in or out of property. It’s important to know this ahead of time and communicate it to your moving company when you book the move.

4. Moving Crew

On the day of your move, your movers will show up on time: ready and enthusiastic to make your moving day an easy one. These are high trained individuals with years of experience with the knowledge to move your belongings safely and quickly out of your apartment into you know home. Hiring movers was a smart decision. The best thing you can do to help your moving crew is to stay out of their way so they can do their difficult job without interruption. And of course – offering them water or Gatorade is a nice gesture as well.

5.Wrapping and protection of furniture

In the hands of these professional movers, your Crate & Barrel or West Elm furniture will be wrapped and protected from damage.
Moving blankets will be sufficient enough to protect your items and the walls of your building from scratches or abrasions. When you book your move, confirm with the moving company that blankets will be provided and used.

6. Hitting the road

After your belongs are packed into the truck, it’s time to hit the road to your new home. The movers will unload all items into your new home and into the rooms specified on your carefully labeled boxes. Your movers will go through their checklist to ensure everything has been delivered properly. You can start unpacking the most important items for each room first until you’re fully unpacked.
