Some of the major decisions for moving day include whether or not to rent a moving truck, hire movers, or ask your friends and family to help. While the answers to each of those questions will be different for everyone, there are certain packing tips that are universal. Along with making sure that you’re completely packed before the moving vans arrive, below are some additional best practices to incorporate.
Once you arrive at your new home on moving day, it is just as important to be organized when unloading your truck and starting the unpacking process. As the homeowner, you should be the moving day coordinator, and this is where the tracking sheet becomes valuable. Let the people moving the items know what rooms furniture goes in while checking off the inventory as it arrives.
Another key point to remember is that the unpacking process does not have to be done in one day. The essentials should be unpacked first, and then take your time with the other items in each room. Remember, it isn’t a race to get things set up. It might seem like a daunting task, but if you follow the moving day tips below you will be sure to finish strong.
