5 Things Your Mover Wants You to Know About Moving Day

Are you thinking of hiring a professional moving team? If so, here are five things your local movers hope you’ll know before even picking up the phone.

Don’t Put Too Many Items in Each Box

Conventional moving wisdom may tell you to pack as many items as you can fit into each box, but this definitely doesn’t work for most movers. Leaving tons of empty space isn’t a great idea, but over-packing your boxes lead to packages that are too heavy and hard to manage. Pack wisely and ensure your boxes are manageable.

Label Those Boxes Properly

How are your movers supposed to know where to put your boxes once they’re unloaded or what is inside of them? The only way to ensure that is to label them properly. Ensure that you do so for the safety of your items and ease of unloading and unpacking later.

Empty Small Drawers

Tiny items smacking around in desk and side table drawers are troublesome for movers. They can damage possessions, fall out of drawers, and cause slip and fall injuries. Prevent this by emptying these drawers prior to moving day.

Know When Your Movers are Coming – and Be Prepared

Nothing is more frustrating for a professional moving team than showing up to a customer’s home and finding them unprepared for the move. Once you hire your movers, mark the date and time on your calendar. Be ready when they show up to let them in and have your possessions ready to load and move. It will expedite the process and make things easier on everyone.

Stand Back and Let the Movers Work

One of the biggest complications that many professional movers encounter when working with clients is that those clients want to pitch in and help with the move. If you’re in need of help with your move, let your movers do their job. They know what they’re doing and expect to conduct the entire job without much help from you aside from direction, so stand back, relax, and let the pros handle it!

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Last Minute Tasks to Do Before You Move

    Are you planning a move soon? If so, you’ve probably already made lists of what to pack, things to clean, and contacts to check in with about your new address. Have you considered those last-minute tasks that usually fall through the cracks and lead to moving day panic, though? If not, here’s your guide to getting those done before you go:

    Cancel Recurring Charges

    From magazines and newspapers to subscriptions that you don’t want to transfer to your new location, you’re sure to have multiple recurring charges that need canceling in the last days before you move. Do this a month before your move date, or as soon as you’re able to.

    Snap Photos to Make Life After the Move Easier

    The way cords connect to your electronics, the way things are supposed to be assembled or decorated – it can all be easy to forget in the chaos of a move. To keep it simple, snap photos of your larger items and collections before packing them so you can refer to those images once you’ve relocated.

    Pack a First 24 Hours Box

    Those first few hours after you move will be some of the most stressful, especially if you don’t have easy access to the things you’ll need right away. Pack a box with the following items to keep with you, so you’ll be able to get to what you need immediately:

    • Hygiene items
    • Bedding
    • Snacks
    • Garbage bags
    • Simple cleaning supplies
    • Clothing for 24-48 hours
    • Pet items
    • Favorite toys for children
    • Phones, tablets, chargers, etc.

    The most important thing to do when you’re wrapping up your move is to relax and reach out for help when you need it. When you need help bringing everything together, count on the local moving experts at DFW Fireman Movers to help you create the best possible moving experience – and make sure nothing is forgotten.

  • Moving with Your Pets

    Moving can be stressful in the best of situations. Adding pets to the equation creates a whole new list of problems that must be addressed before, during, and after you relocate. Here are some helpful tips for moving with your furry friends:

    Keep Pets Out of the Action

    Your pets don’t need to help you with the move, so don’t let them be part of the hustle and bustle of the move. Keep them in safe areas, away from the main action of moving furniture. They’ll be less frightened and remain safe from accidents this way.

    Put Your Pet’s Necessities in Your First-Night Box

    You probably know that your family will need a first-night box to access items of necessity right away once you’ve relocated. This should include your pet, too. Medications, food, favorite toys, and treats should all make it into this box, as well as a way for you to dispose of your pet’s droppings or mess appropriately.

    Touch Base with the Vet

    For families moving into a new area, you’ll need to find a new veterinarian. Contact your current provider to be sure that records are transferred or made available to you, so you can offer them to your new provider.

    Keep Your Pet Nearby but Don’t Let Them Explore

    Your pet may want to be let out of their carrier or want to stretch their legs in your new neighborhood, but they will need a few days to acclimate to their new home before this is a good idea. Let them get used to being near you in the new location – and understand that this is their new home – before letting them outdoors or into the rest of the house to explore.

    For the best experience possible, choose a moving company that is pet-friendly and understands the needs of clients with pets. At DFW Fireman Movers, we can help make your moving experience as stress-free as possible – for you and your pets!
