Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
 
Moving is normally a time-consuming process, and sometimes it could even be complex and chaotic. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to make your move as smooth as possible. The first (and most important) thing is to hire a professional moving company in Denver. But beyond that, here are five tips for moving day that can help make everything a tad less worrisome.
 

1. Make sure you (or someone you trust) is available

This might seem like a given, however you would be shocked how many times professional movers in Denver have to deal with absent clients on moving day. In the event you won’t be available because of an emergency, make sure that a responsible adult is present for the total day (or days). Someone must answer the movers' questions, sign the movers’ paperwork, and oversee the packing/loading process as needed.

2. Ensure that there is a passable walkway from the house to the moving van

For your safety, the safety of the moving crew, and the safety of your possessions, it is imperative that you clear out a route which is wide enough to fit your household goods. Be certain to eliminate all tripping hazards both inside and outside your house, such as toys, clothes, tools, bags of trash, etc.

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

At the beginning of the day, you’ll to go through your residence with the movers and identify things of special importance, breakable things, and stuff that shouldn’t be loaded onto the moving truck. Make sure your professional movers in Denver clearly understand and will remember your instructions.

At the end of the day, it is a great idea to perform one last walkthrough to make certain that all your things have been loaded, and that nothing might be forgotten. This is a super time to triple check your drawers, cabinets, as well as closets for any things which might have been forgotten.

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

We all love our children and our "furry friends," but many times, they slow everything down when work needs to be completed. That's not to mention how they could accidentally make themselves "trip hazards" by running throughout the residence whilst the movers are carrying your boxes.

The point is, it's a sound idea to have a plan. If you have kids, do your best 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 show up to your new home on time and in one piece. With that in mind, it is always a good idea to exchange your contact information with the moving company's driver. Be certain you and the driver are on the same page when it comes to the delivery time.

When you remember these five suggestions on moving day, then the whole process will almost definitely be much smoother, and less stressful for everyone involved.
