With so many details to iron out for move day – getting completely packed, finalizing the sale or rental agreement of your new home, hiring professional movers, etc. – it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the stress of the entire process.
However, with a little proper planning ahead of time, it doesn’t have to be that bad!
We’ve been the moving professionals in this space for more than 35 years and have come up with a few tips and tricks that might be helpful in making sure your move day is a success.
If you have children, keep them involved
While you’re busy taking care of the important details required for your move, it’s crucial not to keep your kids in the dark about the entire process either. It can be a difficult process for them as they are transitioning to a new home and possibly new town or school, so it’s a good idea to make them feel like they are involved in the packing and moving process.

Keep your house protected
Although it’s time to move on from your old house, you still want to leave it in good shape for the next owners. Thankfully, when you hire a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we provide floor runners, door jambs, carpet shields, and banister and railing covers to keep your home protected.
Make sure that before moving day comes, you clear a path both outside and inside your home so that the movers can safely navigate to and from the moving truck.
Get an essentials bag ready for the new house
There’s a solid chance you’ve packed everything away as you’re getting ready to move. This means that everything you own might not be readily available when you get to the new house.
Pack an essentials bag you can access upon arrival at your new home to hold you over until you can unpack. Anything from toothbrushes to chargers, batters, toilet paper, and more is a good idea.
Have snacks and drinks ready, too
It may seem obvious, but there probably won’t be anything to eat in your fridge at the new house when you show up. Having a snack bag and some drinks is always helpful, or hopping on your phone and ordering a pizza will do the trick.
These are just a few simple and easy ideas that you can follow to get ready for moving day. To view more important moving tips, visit our website.
