Moving to a new home is stressful. While hiring local movers to help you pack up your home can alleviate some of the stress, there are still some tasks you’ll need to take care of before the big day. At Express Movers in Waipahu, HI, their team of dedicated professional movers wants you to always be prepared.
Here are a few essential things you’ll need to take care of before the local movers come to your home:
- Get Rid of Clutter: Residential moving services can pack everything in your home, but you may not want to take everything with you. Before moving day, go through each room and get rid of the items you don’t need. Host a garage sale, give them to a friend, or donate unwanted items to a local charity.
- File a Change of Address: Before you move, you’ll need to file a change of address at your local post office. This way, your mail will be forwarded to your new home until you can change the address with each sender.
- Take the Day Off: While your local movers will be able to transport your belongings, you’ll want to be at your new home to help them place your furniture. It’s always good to take the day off if possible, or at least have a trusted friend or family member at your new home to tell the movers where things need to go.
- Confirm the Details: Prior to moving, call your moving company and double-check every detail. Make sure you know when to expect them and confirm the arrangements you made initially. If you need to change any of the details, try to do so as soon as possible.
- Pack an “Essentials” Bag: Before your local movers arrive, pack a bag of all the essentials you’ll need overnight. This way, the movers won’t accidentally pack items like your toothbrush, phone charger, and other necessities in the moving truck.
