What to Do Before Denver Movers Arrive

Many people spend months researching local moving companies until narrowing down their options and hiring Eden’s Moving Company to pack and transport their belongings. Once you’ve scheduled your moving day, it’s important to learn what you need to get done before the Denver movers arrive. Here’s a list of tasks that should be complete:

Get rid of unwanted items.

It’s pointless to ask the movers to pack up and transport items that you no longer need, so go through your belongings before moving day to get rid of these unwanted items. How can you decide what you should get rid of? Most industry experts recommend parting ways with anything that you haven’t used within the last year. Learn how to sort and get rid of stuff before you move.
Determine what to do with hazardous and perishable items.
Many professional packers will not transport perishable or hazardous items. Talk to the moving company that you have hired to determine if the movers will pack these items. If not, take the time to make other arrangements for these items before the movers arrive. Donate the perishable items to a local non-profit that supplies food to the needy if you have hazardous items that you no longer need, research how you can safely dispose of them.

Take inventory.

Before the movers arrive, make sure you have a good idea of exactly what you are asking them to pack and bring to your new home. You don’t have to grab a pen and paper to create this list—it’s best to either use an Excel spreadsheet or an app such as MoveAdvisor designed for this purpose.

Pack a bag of important items.

Moving can be exhausting, so you probably won’t have much energy left to unpack by the time you arrive at your new home. Don’t spend the first night at your new home digging through boxes looking for a phone charger, medications, or toiletries. Keep all of these important items in a small bag that you can carry with you throughout the move. Don’t put this bag inside the moving truck—bring it with you in your vehicle to easily find the items you need without asking the movers for help.

Create a “do not pack” space.

Are there certain items that you would like to pack yourself? If you don’t want the movers handling certain belongings because they are valuable or fragile, make sure that you keep these in a “do not pack” zone. It’s a good idea to move all of these items into a room by themselves and then tell the movers that they don’t need to pack anything inside that room.

Now that you know how to prepare, it’s time to get in touch with the professionals to schedule your move. Contact Eden’s Moving Company for more information about local and long-distance moving services. Call us today to learn more about our services and request a quote.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
