Do These Things Before the Movers Arrive

Getting ready to MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

You have selected the perfect moving company in Denver, packed your entire life into cartons, scheduled your move date, mapped out your road trip, packed your travel bag, as well as have a new home all set and waiting in the new town. After all that work to get everything prepared... now it's moving day. And, when you have done everything correctly, you may well find yourself lounging on the sofa waiting for the moving van pondering... what do I do now?

Having a few hours to yourself on moving day can feel relaxing, exhausting, exciting, or even ambiguous. All people responds differently, but you don't need to just sit around waiting for the moving van to get there. Here are some wise chores to do while waiting for the moving truck to get to your home.

Final Cabinet Check

Take a final walk through your home and do a final look into each room, closet, cabinet, and also drawer. Be sure you won’t be neglecting something or leaving a carton in a closed closet where the professional movers in Denver may not see it. It might be helpful to keep one last half-full carton open to receive the odd sock, earring, or bath towel that you might discover in the back corners of the cabinetry on your double check.

This is a good time to also peek at each bathroom. Be sure there’s toilet paper, a hand towel, and hand soap in each one. This is not only helpful for you and the movers on moving day, it is additionally a courteous way to leave the house: bathroom-ready.

Clear Space for the Movers

Next, think about where the moving van is going to park. You will need a big area, ideally curbside, with the rear (or side) of the moving van pointing toward your house when that is a possibility, in the event you reside in a parking-space controlled area, you might need to reserve a row of single spaces for your moving truck on the big day.

Then thing about the area your professional movers in Denver will be utilizing and prepare a wide path for them to safely follow. You could put down rugs if there is mud, but a lot of professional moving companies in Denver will set down floor runners to keep your floors tidy. You can also move any obstacles out of the way to speed up the move and also get rid of tripping hazards.

Read the Contract & Discard Unmovables

While waiting for the movers, take a few minutes to skim your moving contract as well as documents. The contract should likely list specific items that the professional movers in Denver cannot move, often by law. In the event you have any questions regarding the things that can and can't go on the truck, get in touch with your move coordinator. He or she would be pleased to answer the questions you could have.

Pack Your Car

Last but certainly not least, make sure that your vehicle is packed and set to go. Chances are, after the professional movers are gone and you've done a quick cleaning, you will be setting out for the final time. Check your gas as well as oil levels. Double check your overnight bag and make certain the plants as well as household pets are ready to go when it's time.


When you have taken care of everything else, waiting for the moving truck can feel like a big expanse of wasted time. However with this checklist, you could have your time productively occupied so that everything is ready when the moving truck gets there.
