Once you leave something of value in your old house or lose something during the moving process, chances are high that you would never get them back. Sounds scary, but true! Therefore, you must adopt the utmost caution before and during relocating.

Stop Sleeping On Your Alarm:
The big day is already here, and you have got to start early. There are no two ways to it. Therefore, ditch that ugly habit of snoozing on your alarm to catch five futile minutes of sleep. Once your alarm rings, it is your cue. You might have packed everything carefully days ahead of your moving day, but there will always be something that you might not have thought about before. So, this is the time when you take care of all the minor things, put them wherever you think they go, and be done with the packing process once and for all.
Clean the House One Last Time:
You might be leaving your house, but that does not put a full stop on your responsibility towards it. As you move out of the house, you are only making room for newer souls to move in. Therefore, make the place as habitable as possible. Do not recklessly strew your unnecessary items all over the place. Clean everything while you leave. Think of how you would feel if you had to move into a place which its previous owners made into a dump yard while leaving. That is horrendous. You lived in that house for all this time; therefore, believe it or not, you owe it a final sweep.
Be Nice To Your Packers and Movers:
Though being civil makes for a fundamental human characteristic trait, yet people often tend to forget the normal codes of moral conduct. It is because of your packers and movers that you are being able to go through with the moving thing this easily. Without them, you would have found yourself in the midst of a hullaballoo. Therefore, greet them warmly. Offer them water and beverages. They are professionals who work really hard to get the job done. Thus, it would do you good to remember that and behave accordingly. Introduce them to all your packed boxes if you have packed your stuff yourself. Label them properly so that your movers know how to handle them. The onus is upon you to let them know which boxes contain fragile material. If something breaks, understand that it is not their fault alone. You must be vigilant about the moving process if you need your stuff to reach your new place in one piece.
Guide the Move:
Sure, your packers and movers know their job, and you do not have to keep on nagging them about what to do and how to do. But there is a thin line between nagging and guiding. Your packers and movers might have a certain way of functioning, and you might want to work a certain way.
It is better if you explain to them your priorities and specifications so that there is no miscommunication or misunderstanding. You might be spending a fortune over the entire process. Thus, do not settle.
Express Gratitude To Your Movers:
Do not wash your hands off your movers once the process is complete. Express gratitude and tip them if you can. This shall foster a good relationship between the two of you, and you can reach out to them the next time you have a big move planned. Once you plant the seeds of an amicable relationship with the moving company, you might even get some loyalty discount the next time you have a move of this scale planned out. If nothing else, it will at least restore people’s faith in warmth and friendship.
We have covered all the basic points that you must include and then tick off one by one from the checklist. There are several other ways to handle your big move day, but it is advisable to stick to at least the basics, if not anything else.
