Ways to Help Your Movers Out

Jan 9, 2019 | Information

Choosing to hire movers is the best decision that most people make in the process of selling their home. Movers take some stress off of the process and they save you time. While they make their job look easy, there are some things that you can do to make the process even easier. If you’re wanting to make your move as seamless as possible, there are a few things that you can do that your movers will thank you for. Keep reading to see what you can do to ahead of time that will make your move better.


Packing isn’t fun for anyone. Having to put all of your belongings in cardboard boxes and unpack them, later on, isn’t ideal, but it’s so much easier if you’ve labeled your boxes so that you know exactly what is in each box and where those items need to go. This is super helpful for you, but it’s also helpful for your movers.

Whether you choose to label boxes with the room that they’ll be going in or you get specific with the items that are inside the box, you will be helping your movers out. They’ll be able to determine which boxes are fragile as they load them up and can stack them properly. They’ll also be able to get the boxes into the right rooms without having to rely on you to do so.

Separate Special Items

While you pack up the items in your home, you’ll come across certain items that are special to you and that you don’t want to lose in the move. When you find these items, pack them in a separate box that you can drive over to your new house on your own. This is a great way to give yourself peace of mind with these items in regards to the safety of the move and the well being of the items themselves.

These items could be anything from fragile things that are special and likely to break if not handled carefully or documents and papers that would be difficult, or impossible, to replace. By handling these items on your own and being in charge of transporting them, you don’t have to worry about damaging or losing them during the move and that’s a big weight off your shoulders.

Keep Them Hydrated

One of the smaller things that you can do to help your movers out is to keep them hydrated. Regardless of what time of year your move is happening, it’s hard work having to pack, load and move. Buying a case of water is one of the best things that you can do to help keep your movers energy at a high and ensure that they’re hydrated. The good news is, this will only cost you a couple of dollars and you’ll benefit from energized movers for the entirety of the move!

Trust Your Movers

The individuals that you hired are professionals — they’re meant to do this job. When it comes time for your movers to get started, trust them to do their job and do your best to stay out of the way.

Your local movers will figure out the best way to pack all of your belongings in the truck. They’ll ensure that your fragile items are taken care of and that your furniture doesn’t get scuffed up. Though we totally understand wanting to keep an eye on the move itself, we do appreciate being able to get the move done without having to check in every once in a while.

Take this time to head on over to your new house and get little things set up, or enjoy a meal with your family at your favorite local restaurant. Let the movers take the lead at this point and give yourself the breather that you so desperately need.
