Clear and thorough communication with your movers is key to a smooth and successful moving process. Here are a few important things you should communicate with your movers:
1. Moving Date and Time: The first and most essential thing to communicate to your movers is the exact date and time you would like to move.
2. Moving Inventory: Provide a detailed list of all items you plan to move. Include any large, heavy, or unusual items such as pianos or artwork.
3. Special Handling Items: If you have any items that require special care (antiques, fragile items, electronics, etc.), be sure to communicate this to your movers.
4. Packing Needs: If you require packing services, inform your movers early so they can plan accordingly. Additionally, let them know if you need packing supplies like boxes, bubble wrap, or packing paper.
5. Access Details: Inform the movers about any unique access circumstances at your current or new home. This can include narrow roads, parking restrictions, stairs, elevators, or the need for special equipment.
6. Destination Address: Make sure the movers have the correct destination address and details about the new location. Include information like which floor you’ll be moving into and whether there’s an elevator.
7. Valuable Items: Let your movers know if they’ll be handling any items of high monetary or sentimental value.
8. Schedule: Let your movers know your preferred schedule for the moving day, including when they should arrive and any deadlines for finishing the move.
9. Your Contact Information: Provide your contact information, including a phone number where you can be reached on moving day.
10. Insurance: Discuss insurance options with your mover. Understand the level of liability they accept in case of lost or damaged items.
11. Payment Details: Be clear about payment methods and terms. Ask if you need to pay a deposit and when the final payment is due.
Remember, the goal is to keep no surprises for moving day. Transparency is key to ensuring a stress-free and efficient move.
