There are several ways to improve your interactions with the movers on moving day. You will feel less stressed if you let them do their job, and the movers will appreciate not being micromanaged. Make sure everything is packed before the movers arrive, unless you are paying for them to do it. Take any valuable items with you. Make sure that everything is correctly labeled for their appropriate destinations, and that boxes indicate if they are fragile or not.
- Movers want to be able to do their job without interference. It is better if you let them do the job you’ve paid them for.
- Make sure you don’t have valuables laying around because the movers don’t want to be accused to stealing if you misplace something.
- Make sure to empty out your dressers and other furniture so that they are not heavier for the movers than they should be.
“Labeling each box clearly with its room of destination will help your movers unload more efficiently and save you the hassle of playing traffic director.”
