Moving day is approaching and you’re more than likely wondering what else you need to do to prepare. If you’ve taken the easier approach of contracting Memphis moving and packing service professionals to handle your move, then the bulk of the moving process has been taken care of. There’s no need to purchase packing supplies or rent a truck as your moving and packing experts will have that covered. You will, however, need to consider a few other things that won’t be on the movers’ to do list. Such as:
Set aside important documentation
Important documents such as medical records, employment forms, rent receipts, bank statements, credit cards, etc. are often lost, damaged or destroyed in the moving process. Before your Memphis moving and packing service team arrives to pack your belongings, gather your vital documents, and place them in your essentials box. You’ll want to protect these items and keep them in a place where they are easily accessible and you won’t need to hunt for them in a sea of boxes.
Extra packing supplies
Even after everything is packed, it never hurts to have extra packing supplies on hand in case something happens. Professional movers always come prepared for this circumstance, because from time to time, boxes break open and need to be secured again. So, on moving day, don’t be afraid to carry extra tape, boxes, bags, packing paper, bubble wrap and packing peanuts. People have a habit of underestimating the quantity of items they are moving and often need an extra box or two.
Food and drinks
Moving is hard work and all that works tends to make people hungry. On the day of the big move, your kitchen’s contents will be packed and loaded for transport. Since you have so many things to do and limited time to complete it all, it’s advised to plan ahead and prepare a quick meal to eat while moving/on the road. Considering making sandwiches, setting aside nuts, granola bars and other snacks, bottled water and sports drinks. Don’t forget to keep plastic plates, cups and some cutlery handy as well.
