Pack as much as you can
If you don’t want to go through the hassle of self-packing, you can choose professional packing services as well. If DIY is the way to go, make sure everything is packed and nothing is left in your cabinets, shelving units, etc. You want your commercial movers to be in and out.
Seal your boxes
Don’t waste any time on moving day to do these finishes. Have your boxes sealed before our professional commercial movers arrive at your doorstep. A lot of people don’t know that leaving boxes unsealed can lead to the contents flying around the truck - which is definitely something no one wants to happen.
If you are detailed with your labels, it will make the world of a difference. Your gentle movers will know which boxes contain fragile items, which boxes go where and generally, everything will be much more organized. Not to mention how easy unpacking will be with detailed labeling on your boxes.
Last but definitely not least,is an inventory list. This is one of the most important components of your entire moving experience. Having an inventory list before even getting a quote from local movers will provide you with more accurate quotes. If not - you would need to provide it at least a few days before your move so the truck size can be planned accordingly. Another great reason to have an inventory list is that it’s extremely helpful with checking all the items going on and off the truck so nothing gets lost.
