What To Do the Day Before Moving

What To Do the Day Before Moving

What To Do the Day Before Moving

The day before the big move can be both stressful and exciting, but the job isn’t fully done until you’ve taken care of everything and settled into your new home. We always encourage our readers and customers to have a moving plan and take care of as much as possible, as early as possible. With that said, there are often still things left to do on both moving day and the day before you move. Assuming you’re all packed and ready to go for moving day, we’ve put together a short list of tips for things you should do the day before you move to make sure you’ve done everything you can to make your move easy and stress-free.

Verify Appointment With Movers

It’s always a good idea to double check to times and dates of your appointment if you’ve hired a moving company. Even if you have already confirmed everything, place a phone call to make sure that everything is on track and there are no expected delays. The last thing you want to deal with on a busy moving day is sitting around and waiting for a mover to show up when you’re ready to go. In addition to verifying date and arrival time, be sure to also check on any other services you’ve requested, such as storage or car shipping, to make sure everything is on schedule.

Mone a good job of planning your move

Finish Any Last Second Tasks

If you’ve done a good job of planning your move, there shouldn’t be much left to do the day before. However, as we all know, some things slip through the cracks when you’re undertaking a task as large as moving the entire contents of your home. If there are any items that remain unpacked, get them boxed up and ready to go. Some items, like plates, silverware, or bathroom items, may have to wait until the last minute so that you can use them up until the day you move. And last minute cleaning should also be done before the movers arrive, which should be minimal if you’ve taken the recommended steps in the days and weeks leading up to moving day.

Food Preparations

You’ll want to set aside some snacks and drinks for everyone so that you’ll have something to munch on during the move. This goes double if you’re moving long distance or will be travelling for more than a day to reach your new residence. In the case of long distance moves, you may also want to plan out what you’ll be eating while you’re en route. You’ll be limited to what you can prepare on your own in most cases, so planning out your drive can help you determine what your options will be for each day. If you’re doing a shorter move, think about what you’ll eat on moving day too. Odds are, you’re going to be hungry after a long drive, or after helping unload and situate everything in the house. Don’t forget that the movers will be very appreciative of any snacks or beverages you provide as well.

Make sure that all phones and electronics have a full charge

Charge Phones & Electronics

Make sure that all phones and electronics have a full charge before you hit the road. You may need to be in communication with the movers during the trip so it’s important that you can be reached. Likewise, if you have any children traveling with you, they may need some form of entertainment, particularly for long trips. Any tablets, DVD players, or computers should also be charged if you plan on bringing them with you.
