So it’s been a month since you started preparing for this day and nearly everything is ready; you have packed up almost everything, the moving truck is standing waiting there in front of your building and you are ready to bid your old house goodbye. Here are some tips to help you on this day.
Be Clear about the Preliminaries
Here when we say preliminaries, we mean the contract, insurance, and the pricing. Yes, you would have got those cleared up long before the moving day, but it is still better to check that everything is as it should be. Don’t forgo insurance thinking that it is an expenditure that you can do without. It will save you a lot of pain in case there is any damage to your belongings. Secondly, make sure you have a copy of the contract that you drew up with https://www.moveprola.com/mover-services/ and last but not the least check that all your valuables are safe and secure.
The Route you will take
Map out the route that the moving truck will take beforehand. Moving day is going to be hectic and exhausting, no matter what. You don’t want to make it any worse by getting stuck in traffic, so consider your route carefully and consult with the moving company about it. The moving company will probably make some suggestions themselves. If possible, use Google Maps to find the shortest route to the destination; this might save you some money as you will be paying the company for the distance travelled as well.
Pack a Bag
In fact, you won’t get to the unpacking stage for another day or so. On the moving day after the loading and unloading, you will be too tired to do much of unpacking. So, pack an overnight bag for yourself with your night dress, laptop, a bottle of water, etc., put your toiletries like toothpaste, tooth brush, hand wash, shampoo, soap, etc. in a plastic box then put it in the overnight bag as well. Pack some snacks in the bag too, you might be too tired to go out and eat, or cook anything, the snack will tide you over for the night.
Load the Truck Correctly
The first thing to put inside the moving truck would be the heavy pieces of furniture you own. Then fill up the rest of the space with sundry boxes. Bust out your Tetris skills and make use of the space properly. Flip over items and use every corner of the truck. Ask your moving company people to assist you with the loading. Most companies will offer to do the loading for you as part of the package.
Once unloading is done and you have moved into the unpacking stage, first thing to do is unpack the beds. Even if you are immensely tired, still you should make your bed. That way you wouldn’t need to sleep on the floor. The moving companies will help you assemble your bed and other furniture pieces.
