I have never been one of those people who is naturally inclined to stay organized, but a few months ago I realized that I would need those skills if I was going to move successfully. I started focusing heavily on moving in an organized manner, and I started by getting rid of all of my belongings that I knew I wouldn't need. It took a lot of work, but by the time I cleaned things out, I knew that moving would be a snap. This blog is all about moving the easy way, leaving the mess behind, and being able to enjoy the journey.
Want to know one of the key components of a successful move? If so, understand that it's happy movers. Keeping your movers happy can ensure they stay on target, are comfortable and are ready to get to work. Here are just some of the things you want to keep in mind on moving day.
Movers work on schedules. When you set up your moving package, the moving company likely gave you the option to set both the time and date that you wanted them to arrive. Make sure you're prepared.
Not only do you want to ensure the movers can get inside your home, but also that your home is fully staged and ready to go. Keep in mind that moving services that charge an hourly rate will begin billing as soon as they arrive at your home, even if you're not ready.
Don't Be Too Much Of A Hawk
You have every right to watch over movers while they are working in your home. These are your belongings that you have worked hard for so you want to ensure they are being handled with care. However, there is an extreme to this. If you're being a hawk and literally hovering over the mover's shoulders while they work, you can make them feel uncomfortable, increasing the time it takes for them to work and maybe even making them nervous, which can make some people more accident-prone.
Understand that professional movers generally have extensive training to ensure they know how to handle your items with care and to make certain they are safely delivered.
Let Them Work
Lastly, let the team work. Homeowners are encouraged to engage and interact with the movers in their home to make everyone feel more comfortable, but if you're talking more than they are working – this can create an issue so keep this in mind.
You should also ensure you're creating an environment prime for working by removing any pets from the home. While your furry friend might be the apple of your eye, everyone might not share the same sentiment. Make sure you make arrangements for your pet to be out the home so the movers can work freely.
Although it might seem like you're catering to the movers, remember that your efforts only make it easier for them to work efficiently, which is important to being on time and minimizing damage. Make sure you're preparing your home for moving day.Share
