You are getting ready for a big move and have hired some professional packers to help you out! But you do not know what you should or should not do before the packers arrive. Here are some basic steps to follow to ensure that you are prepared.
Get Rid of Unneeded Things
The first thing you should do is rid your house of unneeded items. Most moving companies charge by the weight of what was packed. Hence, doing a purge before you move can help keep costs down. You should also get rid of any dangerous items that the movers cannot legally pack for you, such as chemicals, perishable foods and plants.
Separate Daily Essentials
There will be some items that you need to keep with you during the moving process, such as a couple of outfits and toiletries. Anything that you do not want packed by the movers should be placed in a room that is labeled “Do Not Pack.”
Inventory Your Possessions
Since your belongings will be temporarily out of your possession, it is a good idea to take an inventory of everything that is being packed. If you have the time and ability, you could even take pictures of each item. This is beneficial for unpacking to ensure that everything reached your new home.
