Tips & Tricks for Before and on the Moving Day

1. Before the Moving Day

Preparing for a move can be a stressful process, but there are several tips and tricks you can follow to make the day smoother and more efficient before the movers arrive at your property:

  • Label your boxes each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking at your new home much easier (applicable if you’ll be the one conducting the packing);
  • Pack valuable and important items separately and consider taking them with you in your car (e.g. laptops, phones, jewellery, money);
  • Pack an Essentials Box: Prepare a box with essential items you'll need on moving day and the first night in your new home. Include items like toiletries, a change of clothes, important documents, and some basic kitchen utensils.

2. On the Moving Day

  • Create a Moving Day Checklist: Make a detailed checklist of all the tasks you need to complete on moving day, from packing last-minute items to confirming logistics with the moving company.
  • Keep important documents like passports, birth certificates, and financial records in a secure and easily accessible place during the move. You will need to handle them yourself (not to be submitted for a packing and moving service).
  • Disconnect and Prepare Appliances: Unplug and prepare appliances for transport. This includes defrosting the fridge and freezer and securing any loose parts.
  • Dismantle Furniture: If necessary, disassemble furniture that can be taken apart. Keep all screws and bolts in a labelled bag to make reassembly easier. We usually dismantle as well as  reassemble the items that can’t fit through the doors as they are. However if you choose to do the dismantling/reassembling yourself, please ensure this is done before the moving crew arrives at the property. Items of furniture that are not dismantled by us, will not be put back together by us.
  • Protect Floors: Lay down protective materials, such as cardboard or drop cloths/dust sheets, to safeguard your floors and walls from potential damage during the move. Should you need a quote from us for floor protection, do let us know and we will provide you.
  • Inventory Your Belongings: Create an inventory list of your belongings and their condition. This will be helpful for insurance purposes and for keeping track of your items during the move.
  • Keep Valuables and Essentials Close: Safeguard valuable items, important documents, and irreplaceable heirlooms by keeping them with you, rather than loading them onto the moving truck.
  • Pack a Cooler: If your move takes a long time, pack a cooler with drinks and snacks to stay refreshed and energized throughout the day.
  • Arrange for Child and Pet Care: If you have children or pets, arrange for someone to take care of them on moving day. This will keep them safe and out of the way during the hectic process.
  • Coordinate with the Movers: Communicate with the moving company to confirm arrival times and any specific requirements or instructions you have.
  • Prepare Cash and Payment: Have cash or be ready to pay the movers before unloading, and make sure you understand the payment terms in advance.
  • Double-Check Everything: Before the movers arrive, double-check that everything is packed and ready to go. Walk through your home to ensure nothing is left behind (this is the responsibility of the customer).
  • Stay Organized: Stay organised and keep your moving documents and important contact numbers within reach. This will help you manage any unforeseen issues that may arise.

Remember that being well-prepared for moving day can significantly reduce stress and ensure a smoother transition to your new home. It's a good idea to plan ahead and take the time to prepare effectively.
