5 Ways to Prepare for Your Boston Moving Company to Arrive

Moving into a new home is an exciting time and you don’t want the actual process of moving your belongings to tarnish the experience.  The first step toward taking out the stress is hiring a good moving company. The second step is doing a good job of preparing for the movers to come.  Let’s go over a few ways to make the process easier on yourself and the moving company.

Get the Packing Done Early

On moving day you should be completely done packing your belongings in boxes so when the movers come, they can just get to work with a little guidance from you. Most movers charge by the hour, so don’t end up paying them to stand around waiting for you to finish packing.

Keep Boxes Uniform

Don’t use any more than four different sizes of boxes. Keeping boxes uniform will make it much easier to movers to stack and load boxes. The more efficient your movers work, the fewer hours you’ll end up paying for.

Put All the Packed Boxes in One Room

Keeping all your packed boxes in one room means the movers can stack and load everything much faster. Try to get as much as possible into the living room. If you live in a two story home, get as much as you can onto the first floor and leave the heaviest items for the moving company.

Disassemble Furniture Yourself

Most moving companies will be more than happy to disassemble furniture for you, if you’re willing to pay for the extra hours involved. Save yourself some money by disassembling furniture yourself and having it ready to lift and load up.

Keep First-Night Necessities Separate

Pack up all the necessities you’ll need for the first night in your car. That way, you’ll be able to easily access your toiletries, a change of clothes and other personal items.

  1. Movingelite was as good as it gets from start to finish. They were prompt, responsive,
    and professional from the moment we requested an estimate, to the very last box they placed in our new place.
    We moved within Brooklyn – a short distance – but we had a lot of stuff so it was a lot of work.

  2. Thanks a lot @Gregory for sharing such a useful article. Those who move for the first time often face problem regarding the moving of their possession. However, some solid ideas like these will make the move an enjoyable one. Hiring a moving company is always best when you want to move to a long distance and there is nobody to help you. Also if you are busy person, hiring a moving company is recommended. However, those who are moving must check the license and insurance of the moving company and check their reliability by reading online reviews or by asking to family and friends.
