5 Things to Do Before the Movers Arrive

Shifting to a new home or office can be exciting but it can be tiring too, especially if you’re not well-prepared. With New Jersey having some of the worst traffic jams in the country, it is critical that you plan your move perfectly. While partnering with a good mover can help you, there’s also some responsibility on you to ensure that the process is seamless.

Here are five tips to make your move a breeze.

Review Your Process & Timeline

By now, you would’ve done all your research, identified the perfect movers, and checked them for any red flags that might hinder your shift.

The next step is to review the entire project, including the complete timeline and budget. Checking and reconfirming the schedule with your moving partner can help you avoid unnecessary hassles.

Organize & Purge

One of the best things to do before the movers arrive is to organize your items and prepare your inventory list. This is also the perfect time to declutter your home or office space. Removing unnecessary items not only reduces your budget but also helps reduce additional strain on your movers.

Communicate Clearly

This is one of the most critical things you could do before your movers arrive. Communication could generally include internal communication within your organization or simply asking someone to take care of your kids. Please also note that this can help your movers choose the best vehicles, packing materials & people for the job.

Be Present

If you hire a trusted mover, they will handle all aspects of your move efficiently and pack all of your valuable items with the utmost care. However, it is essential to make yourself or a trusted person available during the move. This is mainly because traditional moving insurance excludes coverage for three major scenarios: theft, improper packaging & item damage during transit. So, you might need to keep some of your valuables like jewelry safe and transport them yourself.

Be Flexible

No matter how well you plan your move, there could be curveballs. It could either be the lift not working or the moving vehicle causing a traffic jam. So, we suggest that you keep an open mind and prepare yourself to make some last-minute adjustments. This is very important if you’re shifting internationally as there are many moving parts that can cause significant headaches.
