Prepping your house before the movers arrive makes your move faster. Here are a few things you can to that'll get your house ready for packing services.
Preparing for a big move can seem like a daunting task for any household. However, you don't need to feel overwhelmed if you hire a packing services company.
These companies can help make moving easier, and provide you with the peace of mind that all of your possessions won't get lost in an organized mess if you did things yourself.
Take a look at how hiring a packing services company can help you on moving day.
Keep Important Documents Separate
Anything of important legal value should be packed up and put in a secure location before the packing company arrives at your house.
The main reason being important documents such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, tax information, can simply be put with other items that you may not open right away, or possibly put into storage.
A safe place to keep them is in your bedroom until moving day, and then put them in your vehicle close to the driver or passenger in the front row.
Keep Pets Away From the Packers
If you have any furry legged animals or others that may fly around, keep them away from your packers. Your pets can cause a distraction for the packing company and could result in lost time wasted, or items being misplaced.
Depending on how your pets are with strangers it could also be very distracting to have a dog barking continuously, as the company is trying to put their game plan into action.
To make things easier for everyone simply put all of your pets in the backyard, or in a room that packers won't have to go into.
Hire a Babysitter
The same way pets can become a distraction, so can your little ones! We love them with all of our hearts but they are not the best helpers when it's time to move.
While you are helping the packing company keep things in order and assisting with packing your home, the children can be preoccupied with a babysitter outside playing games or maybe going to the park.
This is a great way to get everything packed up and for roughly $30-40 is a smart choice for any parent moving.
Tip the Packers
Once your home is packed up do you simply thank the company for their services and move on? Of course not!
Although it is not mandatory, and some companies may not even accept it, offering a tip is another show of gratification to the packing company for their hard work.
How much should you tip? Most of the time tipping a small percentage of the overall bill will be good, but you can also pay a flat fee anywhere in the range of $20-50 depending on the size of the job.
