What You Will Be Responsible for on Load Day


Relocation day has at last arrived! You’ve spent so much time readying for this time, and if you took the time to hire a top-tier moving company, today will be a pleasant experience. The movers will take care of all the major lifting from here.

On moving day it is finally time to finish planning and proceed with carrying out. In case you have missed any of the preceding pieces of this series, you can follow up by following the links below:

Watch out for your items - and yourself!

It’s very helpful to get a very good night’s sleep the evening before relocation day —and don’t forget to eat a substantial breakfast. It’s going to be a hectic day, and you’ll just feel better during the day if you’re well rested and well fed. You’ll be pleased you did!

On moving day, it is critical to be on hand throughout the relocation. When your movers get there, provide them a short walk through of your home, identifying any breakable objects requiring extra attention and also any items you do not want the movers to remove. This will enable them to get a feel for the place and your objectives.

We recommend having an interesting book or magazine chosen for move day. It is important for you to be available throughout the process should any of the crew members have questions, but when the movers begin you will have some spare time on your plate. Since your TV and computers will all be boxed away, you will want to make sure you have something to keep you entertained.

Attention to detail

Following the tour, the movers will begin laying down flooring coverings. If you’re relocating to another state, your crew leader will begin constructing a thorough inventory list of all the items you’re moving, and their state at origin. This inventory will be used to verify everything arrives at your new place in the same state as it departed your current place.

When the crew members are finished, it’s important to go through the home one final time with the driver and ensure that all things have been loaded. Make sure to open all the closets, cabinets, and storage areas for any forgotten items. When each piece is removed of the space, you’ll sit down with the driver and sign all of the relocation paperwork.

One last check

After the movers depart, finish your relocation day by walking through your space one last time to make sure that the windows are all secured, the lights are all switched off, and your water and furnace are shut off. Say your well wishes to your space – it served you well, but you have a new house waiting for you!
