The Big Day...

1. Make sure to be on hand when the movers arrive. It's important that an adult be authorized to take your place if you are unavailable at any time while the movers are there. Let the mover know to whom you have given this authority to. Make sure that your chosen representative knows exactly what to do because this person may be asked to sign documents obligating you to charges.

2. Confirm the delivery date and time for your new address. Write directions to your new home for the driver, provide the new phone number, and include phone numbers where you can be reached in transit.

3. Always try to spend as much time with the mover as possible. If you have special instructions make sure they are explained to your mover.

4. When the movers arrive, review all details and paperwork. Accompany them as they inspect and tag your property. The tag numbers, along with a detailed description of your goods and their condition at the time of loading, will appear on the inventory.

5. It is your responsibility to see that everything is loaded, so remain on the premises until loading is completed. Always do a final inspection of the premises. Do not sign any releases without completing this inspection.

6. Since you'll probably want to clean before the furniture is unloaded, make sure your vacuum and cleaning supplies are packed last, so they can be unloaded first. Get ready for moving day!
