Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
Moving is normally a lengthy ordeal, and sometimes it could even be complex and hectic. Luckily, you will find numerous things you can do to make your move as smooth as possible. The initial (and most important) thing is to hire a professional moving company in Denver. But beyond that, we would like to share five tips for moving day that should help make everything a little bit less worrisome.

1. Make sure you (or somebody you trust) is present

This should seem obvious, but you may be perplexed how many times professional movers in Denver must deal with absent clients on moving day. Even if you can't be present due to an emergency, make sure that a trustworthy adult is there for the entire day (or days). Someone must answer the movers' questions, sign paperwork, and supervise the packing/loading process as needed.

2. Be Certain that there is an unobstructed route from the residence to the moving truck

For your safety, the safety of the moving crew, and the safety of your things, it is important that you clear out a walkway that is sufficient to accommodate your items. Be sure to eliminate all tripping hazards both inside and outside your residence, including toys, clothes, tools, bags of trash, and so forth.

3. Do an initial and final walkthrough with the moving crew

At the start of the day, you want to go through your home with the moving team and mention belongings of extreme, breakable items, and belongings that shouldn’t be loaded into the moving van. Be sure your professional movers in Denver clearly understand and will remember your directions.

At the end of the day, it's a great idea to embark on one last walkthrough to ensure that all your belongings have been loaded, and that nothing is being forgotten. This is a good time to triple check your drawers, cabinets, and also closets for any things that might have been overlooked.

4. Keep kids and/or pets out of the way

We all adore our kids and our "furry friends," but often, they slow everything down when work needs to be accomplished. That is not to mention how they may accidentally make themselves "trip hazards" by running through the home when the movers are carrying your boxes.

The point is, it's a sound idea to have a plan. If you have children, attempt to keep them busy with fun activities in a separate room, so that they're happy, busy, and safe. Or better yet, see if a relative or friend might be around to watch them for the day. And if you have pets, it might be best to put them in a kennel or cage for a little while or have someone watch them for the duration of the packing and loading process.

5. Make sure you and the company driver are on the same page

After your items are all packed and loaded on the moving van, you still want them to get to your new home on time and in one piece. With that in mind, it's definitely a great idea to exchange your contact information with the moving company's driver. Be sure you and the driver are on the same page when it comes to the delivery schedule.

When you implement these five guidelines on moving day, then the entire process will almost certainly be much smoother, and less chaotic for all involved.
