Have Your Items Fully Packed
You want your move to be completed as quickly as possible, and one of the things that can easily slow down the moving team is unpacked items. Put as many things in boxes as possible, and this includes even large items like bedding and pillows. Tape and label the boxes, and place them in an easy to access location, such as in the garage, for the movers. The more work you do to prepare for the move, the faster things will go on moving day.
Disconnect Appliances and Electronics
Another important step to take when preparing for the moving company is to fully disconnect your appliances and electronics. This includes everything from the TV and cable box to the refrigerator, lamps and more. Tie the cords to these items up with a twist or zip tie. Your movers may wrap them in plastic or bubble wrap for you to prevent damage while they are en route to their new home. Your effort to disconnect them ahead of time can save many minutes of extra effort.
Some moving companies charge by the hour, and you may be able to save money by taking these steps to prepare for your movers. Even if your moving company does not charge by the hour, the moving process can be completed faster and easier when you take these important steps.
