Moving is known to be one of the most stressful tasks adults face, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, there are certain things that Denver movers wish you knew that would make a move far less stressful for everyone involved. Here are a few things to consider to make moving a whole lot easier:
Add the Final Destination to the Labels
Many people know to write a short description of what’s inside when labeling each box, but that’s not all that should be included on the label. Be sure also to include where the box should go once it arrives at your new home. For example, a box of plates should say “kitchen,” and a box of clothes should say “master bedroom.” This makes it easier for the movers to transport all of your belongings inside your new home without having to ask you where everything should go.
Label Fragile Items
Movers want to make sure that your items arrive at your new home in perfect condition. To help them reach this goal, label fragile items to know which boxes should be treated with extra care. You may even want to separate these items by putting them in one room of your home so movers know how many fragile boxes they will need to make room for on the truck. Read the top 10 damaged items when moving and how to protect them.
Before the movers arrive, empty the drawers of any furniture that you plan on moving. Leaving items inside drawers makes the furniture heavier, which means it is more difficult to move. The items inside the drawers can also be shifted around during the move, so they may be damaged once they arrive at your new home. To prevent this problem, it’s strongly recommended you empty all of the drawers first.
Let Movers Work
People often feel inclined to lend a hand to their movers, so they’re not the ones doing all of the work, but that’s really not necessary. In fact, sometimes, it can slow things down if you try to get involved. You’ve hired the movers to do a job, so let them do it! Stick around so movers can ask you questions if a problem arises, but there’s no need to step in and try to assist with the move unless it’s necessary.
If you’re not paying for packing services, ensure that all of your packings are done before the movers arrive. This means everything should be boxed up and the boxes should all be taped and labeled. Movers should not have to wait around while you finish packing your belongings, so schedule the move far in advance so you have plenty of time to get your home packed.
