Take Advantage Of Hiring Movers

If you are moving to a new house, then you should think about hiring movers. If you do, then consider taking advantage of their full-service option in which they will take care of everything from packing your house including tending to the careful packing of all your fragile items, moving your belongings in their truck, unpacking everything into your new home, and helping to set everything up in your new place. If you do decide to have movers take care of your move for you, then there are some things that you want to do to prepare for the movers and here are some of them: 

Have your pets under full control

When it comes to your pets, realize the movers will be coming in and out of your doors and you can't expect them to continuously watch out for your pets so they can't get out. If pets do get out during a move, they can be a bit freaked out and this means they may run off when they normally wouldn't. You also don't want to put the movers in the position of being bitten or scratched by your pets. Also, having your pets running loose can put the movers and anyone else nearby in the position of being injured. These are just some of the reasons why you should consider having your pets boarded while the movers are moving you, or why you should have a trusted person watch your pets for you at their home. 

Have your personal items kept aside

You are going to want to gather your personal items that you don't want to be packed and keep them together before the movers get there. Let them know that you will be keeping those items with you. Some examples of these things include your medications, your daily hygiene items, the clothing items you want with you, pet food and supplies, your laptop and smart devices, your chargers, and anything else that you are going to want to have access to during the move, as well as immediately need upon arrival to your new home. 

Don't try to help

While you may feel like you should be helping during the moving process, you don't want to worry about this if you have hired the movers to offer you their white-glove service. The moving company will work like a well-oiled machine. They have a system that allows them to take care of everything in an orderly manner and if you start moving stuff around, then you may end up making things a bit confusing for everyone. Also, if you try to move stuff while the movers are moving items, then you can end up creating a dangerous situation for you and the movers. The best thing to do is to tend to other things, like phone calls you need to make to get things set up, and enjoy having someone take care of everything else for you.
