On the Day the Chinese Movers Come to Load Your Stuff…
On the day of the big move, you’ll want everything ready and organized for the movers. Accidents are more likely to occur when you aren’t prepared properly. All boxes should have labels and secured with packaging tape. If you have children or pets, have a sitter prepared on moving day. When children or pets are in the way of the movers, someone could get injured or something might get damaged. It is best to make sure that they are not present for the big day. If you can’t find a sitter, please have the pets locked away in cages until the movers have left the home. Be sure to have your inventory list, Bill of Lading, address of the destination, and a parking permit. It’s also smart to provide the movers with snacks and beverages. This will make it easier for them to finish the job of loading and unloading much quicker. Before the movers leave for the next destination, compare your inventory list with theirs, if they created one. Also ask them when they anticipate arriving at the next property, what route they will be taking, and what number they can be contacted at. Some moving companies will provide their customers with free satellite tracking services.
