Things To Get Ready For Moving Day
Loading Your BelongingsBe on hand when the movers arrive. Otherwise, it is important to let the Movers know to whom you have given authority to take your place. Be sure this person knows exactly what to do. Remember the person may be asked to sign documents obligating you to charges
Be sure the condition of each item is recorded and the van operator has a clear understanding about what is to be loaded last. It is your responsibility to see that all of your goods are loaded, so remain on the premises until loading is completed. After making a final tour of the house to be sure no items have been overlooked, check and sign the inventory. Get your copy and keep it in a safe place
- Leave the phone connected throughout the moving day.
Leave a note listing your new address in a conspicuous place in the house so the new occupants will be able to forward any of your mail inadvertently delivered to them.
- Take a last look around:
- Water shut off?
Gas shut off?
Air-conditioning shut off?
Light switches turned off?
All utilities arranged for disconnection?
Windows shut and locked?
Have you left anything?
Lock the house and leave the keys with a responsible person or in a prearranged location.
