Getting ready to MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

You have picked the perfect moving company in Colorado Springs, packed all your possessions into cartons, confirmed your move date, planned your road trip, packed your travel bag, and have a new home all lined up and waiting in the new town. After all that hard work to get everything ready... moving day is now here. And, in the event you've done your job right, you might well find yourself perched on the couch waiting for the truck thinking... now what?

Having a few hours to yourself on moving day can be comforting, tiring, sensational, or even ambiguous. Everyone react differently, but you don't need to just sit around waiting for the moving truck to get there. Here are a few great chores to do while waiting for the moving van to arrive to your house.

One Last Drawer Check

Take a final walk through your residence and do a final check of each room, closet, cabinet, and also drawer. Be sure you are not neglecting something or leaving a carton in the attic where the professional movers in Colorado Springs might not find it. It could be helpful to have one last half-full box open to put the odd sock, necklace, or bath towel that you might discover in the far reaches of the cabinetry on your final check.

This is the perfect time to also peek at each bathroom. Make sure there’s TP, a hand towel, and hand soap in every one. This is not only important for you as well as the movers on moving day, it is additionally a polite way to leave a home: bathroom-ready.

Clear Space for the Movers

Next, ponder where the moving truck should park. You’ll need a large space, generally curbside, with the rear (or side) of the moving van pointing toward your residence however that is possible, in the event you reside in a parking-space controlled area, you may need to book a row of single spaces for your moving van on moving day.

Then take into consideration the path your professional movers in Colorado Springs will be utilizing and make a wide path for them to safely follow. You might put down large towels in the event there is mud, however the majority of professional moving companies in Colorado Springs will put down floor runners to keep your floors clean. You might also clear all obstacles out of the way to speed up the move as well as get rid of tripping hazards.

Read the Contract & Discard Unmovables

While waiting for the movers, take a moment to skim your moving contract and also documents. The contract could likely list certain things that the professional movers in Colorado Springs cannot move, often by law. Should you have some questions regarding the things that can and cannot be loaded on the truck, give your moving coordinator a call. He or she will be glad to answer all questions you may have.

Pack Your Car

Finally, make sure that your vehicle is packed and ready to head out. Most likely, as soon as the professional movers are gone and you've done a quick cleaning, you'll be departing for good. Fill up your gas and oil levels. Check your overnight bag and make sure your plants as well as pets are ready to go when it is time.
