Moving Day Checklist

April 9th, 2015

Moving is so stressful, which is why Boston Rare Movers does everything they can to ensure a smooth and efficient move for all clients! To make your life just a little bit easier, we composed a Moving Day Checklist to help you stay organized during a very hectic moving day.

Step One:

Organize boxes into two categories: things you want packed and things you do not packed. When we arrive, make sure to tell our moving crew which boxes should be loaded in the truck, and which ones should not. That way any important paperwork or products you need right away won’t be packed in the truck.

Step Two:

Keep the kids entertained! Make sure you have a box or some sort of bag that contains items your kids need/items that will keep them busy during the move. You want to make sure you keep these items close to your kids so that they are entertained during and after the move.

Step Three:

Dump the trash and get rid of flammable items. Get rid of as much trash as possible before the moving day. During the move, trash will start to build up between snacks, lunch time and other miscellaneous things, so see if you can use your neighbor’s trash during moving day.

Flammable items cannot be loaded onto the truck, and should be disposed over before or during moving day. For a complete list of flammable items, please give Rare Movers a call prior to moving day, and we will provide you with products we are unable to transport.

Step Four:

Reserve a parking space for our moving truck at both your old location and your new location. This is an important step, as the distance between the truck and the location of your home will determine how long the move will take. If we are located right outside your front door we will be able to load and unload boxes a lot quicker and more efficiently.

Step Five:

Clear all walkways and stairways. Make sure there is a clear path from your front door to our truck, to avoid any major accidents!! This includes removing floor mats, rugs, plants, low hanging wind chimes, etc.

With these five items checked off during moving day, you will find that your moving day just became a little less stressful! For more useful tips or to schedule a moving day with Rare Movers, please give us a call at 617-825-7273.
