It’s tempting to hang around and keep an eye on movers while they are at work. You can’t help but tell them what to do and point out valuables that are fragile. Individuals also tend to be on edge that technicians will end up scratching the hardwood flooring or scraping the paint off the walls.
Moving technicians are highly trained in their field. They are taught how to pack, move, and use moving equipment to ensure all their belongings are safe.
Here are some ways you can facilitate them while they are at work:
Pack as much as you can
To make moving day as easy as possible, pack all the belongings in sturdy boxes ahead of time. That way the movers will only have to deal with large furniture and appliances that have to be moved.
Make sure these boxes are carefully packed and not filled beyond its capacity. Use paper and bubble wrap around fragile items to ensure bumps along the way done damage them.
Label each box correctly so that movers can stack them in the best way possible. Movers will appreciate the gesture as it saves time and saves on costs too.
Don’t leave valuable items for the truck
Belongings that are worth a lot of money, or are fragile, or have deep sentimental value must be packed in your vehicle. Don’t put such valuables in the hands of movers, no matter how careful they are.
Jewelry, electronics, expensive crystal crockery, paintings, and picture frames are examples of items you should pack in your own car.
Have some refreshments on hand
Moving boxes and heavy furniture around is a physically demanding job that is extremely exhausting. Moving technicians will surely work up a sweat working throughout the day. Have some refreshments on hand for them. Some lemonade, tea, or coffee will help them recharge. Snacks will also be highly appreciated.
Keep a bathroom free for movers to use
Moving belongings into a truck takes a considerable amount of time, especially if the workers have to pack as well. The workers will need a restroom to use. Make sure you have a functional bathroom ready for them to use throughout the duration they are working.
