You’ve hired professional movers to help you complete your move. You want to be helpful, but you also don’t

want to get in their way. Here are a few things that you can do to help things go smoother:

Label Everything

Having every box have a clear label is one of the best ways to save time and money on move-in day.

Pack as much as possible the days and weeks leading up to the moving day (we can help).

When sorting things into boxes, label everything with its contents and its intended destination. This way, even if you’re not there to supervise each box, your movers will have the knowledge to continue working hard and know precisely where each box belongs. Not only will they likely appreciate the help, but it’ll save extra work later on.

Pack Fragile and Valuable Items in Your Car

RARE Moving will be extremely careful with your personal belongings, ensuring nothing gets damaged or misplaced throughout the process.

However! Accidents are possible, and even with the best planning and precautions things can still go wrong. If you have items you’re especially concerned about, pack them away in the car with you. These include items such as family heirlooms, specific electronics, and jewelry. Doing this will ensure your already high-stress levels aren’t unnecessarily elevated.

Water and Snacks

Whether it’s the height of summer or the lowest temperature point in the winter, your moving team would likely appreciate refreshments while they give their total effort for your move. Having a few snacks on hand wouldn’t hurt either, even if it’s just a few bags of chips. Showing that you appreciate their work will help the day be better for everyone.


Overall, it’s important to not micromanage your movers. After reviewing companies, choosing your team, and working with them through the process, you should trust them to properly move your valuables. Make sure you do your research into moving companies though – a great moving experience is RARE. Call us today at (617) 825-7273.
