Doing your own packing

  • Make sure to have all the necessary packing supplies, such as boxes, bubble wrap, tape, and markers. If the movers are doing the packing, they will have all of the necessary, top-grade materials.
  • Take pictures of any valuable or fragile items before they are packed. This helps with insurance claims if anything gets damaged during the move.
  • Make sure to label all of boxes clearly with the contents and the room they belong to. This will make unpacking much easier.
  • If you have any large or bulky items that need to be disassembled, make sure to do it before the movers arrive. Check with the moving company to find out if this is an included service.

Before the movers arrive

Planning ahead is the best way to reduce stress and headaches around moving day, advises the team from the Reno movers. Stay in touch with the moving company and provide any information needed as quickly as possible. Make a list of things that need to be done before the movers arrive that includes the following:

  • Make arrangements for pets so they are not stressed, or can escape, when the movers are working.
  • Make arrangements for small children as well.
  • Have everything that is traveling with you already packed and stored in a separate location, such as a closet, or in your car. Inform the movers not to move those items.
  • If you have any important documents or valuables, make sure to keep them with you during the move.
  • Make sure to declutter your home and get rid of any unnecessary items before the movers arrive. This will save you time and money, as well as make the move smoother.
  • Create a list of all the items you want to be moved, and make sure they movers have a copy beforehand.
  • Make sure to inform the movers about any parking restrictions or limitations at your current or new home.
  • Make sure to inform the movers about any access restrictions, such as narrow stairways or elevators, at your current or new home.
  • On the day the movers are to arrive, make sure the pathway between the house and moving van is clear.

When the movers arrive
