How To Prepare Your Home For An Easy & Successful Move

It’s important not to stress yourself out on the day of your moving to BC. The professional moving company you hire will be able to take care of the moving and packing for you but there are other aspects of a move that are important to be aware of. To ensure the day goes off without a hitch, here are some tips on how to prepare your home for a professional mover.

Clean Countertops, Tables and Desks

It’s important to ensure that the surfaces of your belongings are cleaned up and ready to go on the day of the move. Clean small appliances inside and out, get the breadcrumbs out of the toaster, and ensure that any large appliances are thoroughly cleaned.

Labeling

Be sure to use a black permanent marker to proper label the contents of a box to ensure that your movers know where to put the boxes in your new home. When you’re moving in BC, you’ll be able to find your belongings easy once the movers are gone. Remember to tag fragile boxes appropriate and always alert the movers which boxes need extra care.

Small Items

Any jewellery or smaller items aren’t best kept in a box. Use plastic Ziploc bags to keep all of your smaller items together and to avoid losing pieces.

Clear An Empty Entranceway

When moving in BC, ensure that there is a clear pathway from the boxes to their destination in the truck. There’s no need to put everything at the front door. You want your movers to be able to swiftly move from truck to home with no issues.

Even if you have professional packers come in to do your packing for you, these few tasks should be done by any home owner prior to moving to BC. Using these tips, you’ll make your move faster, easier and more cost-effective all around.
