Need a recap of the major items covered in the video?
- Always color coordinate where you want each item delivered. If not color coordinating, label each item and box for what room it is going to be delivered to.
- Do draw out a plan ahead of time as to where you would like everything to go. Draw a scale map of your new home, and size your furniture to make sure that is where you would like it moved. If you furniture isn’t going to fit in your new place, why not sell it and make a little cash instead of paying to have it moved?
- Do have the items you use least moved into your home first. To give you an example; if you very rarely use your tool chest in the basement, have those types of items moved in first. This way you have the ability to see where you can store it. If you don’t have room for these things, you might want to think about purging a few of them to make room for the must haves.
- Do disconnect your appliances ahead of time and have them serviced for the move. Often moving companies cannot legally disconnect appliances, so you want to make sure they are ready to go if you are having them moved. An example of this would be your washing machine.
- Make sure you have everything boxed by the time the move starts. There is nothing worse than being unprepared for moving day. You will keep your movers working longer than needed and will be strapped personally for time if you aren’t packed up. Being well organized for the move includes being completely packed and ready to be loaded on a truck.
