Moving day is a process; to say the least. It can be exciting, stressful and filled with emotion. Here's what you can expect when it comes to the moving day process.
The Actual Moving Day Process
The process for moving day will vary a bit, depending on how well you are prepared. If you're well prepared and you don't run into inclement weather or any other hiccups, it should go a bit like this:
Wake up and get some breakfast (you'll need the energy)
Do any last minute packing before the movers arrive
Movers arrive and go through the things you want packed with you
Movers start loading the truck(s) with your belongings
You pack your essentials bag, valuables and other items into your own vehicle
Movers finish packing, close the truck and head towards your new home
You go through the old residence to make sure nothings was overlooked
You hit the road and head to your new home
Movers unload all items into your new home and into the room specified on the carefully labeled boxes
You move in all items packed in your personal vehicle
Movers go through their checklist to ensure everything has been delivered properly
You start unpacking the most important items for each room first
You're now moved in and just need to get fully unpacked
If you hired your professional moving company to help with packing, unpacking, furniture disassembly and furniture assembly, they will also take care of these tasks.
During the moving day process, expect to have found something you forgot to pack or have something in need of repacking. In addition, if it's a busy day, expect delays. Moving day doesn't always go perfectly, but if you expect the hiccups, they won't throw you off too much.
Hiring a moving company will go a long way to making the moving day process smooth and easy. Make sure you're well prepared or you could be doing quite a bit of last minute packing, which can delay the process on moving day.
