Moving day is stressful but there are always a few things we can do to relieve some of the pressure.
Here are my top suggestions:
- Get a goodnights sleep and have a few protein bars and snacks on hand for move day. Having enough sleep and full stomach will affect our moods and ability to adapt to all the challenges moving can present.
- If you have pets my best suggestion is to either move them ahead or have them taken care off by someone else. There is already a lot of change and all the people in your home will not only make it dangerous and stressful for them. Plus you don’t know what allergies your movers may have so the safe thing is to keep them out of the way.
- Do a walk through with your foreman on arrival. This will ensure that you are on the same page with regard to the estimate, rates and policies. It will also give you the chance to make sure you point out and concerns you have to your crew.
- Ask questions so that you are comfortable but be sure to give your movers the space they need to work. As long as you have chosen a professional moving company their experience should overcome any challenges.
