What To Do While Your Movers Are Packing and Moving

Did you know that the majority of people do not have a plan for what to do while their movers and packers are packing and moving? This could be because so many homeowners lack the knowledge on how to keep themselves busy during this time. Luckily, we’re here to help! Our team at Mr.Mover compiled a list of ways you can fill your time while your mover is busy working for you.

Offer Your Movers Some Refreshments

You might not have much to go around, but offering your movers something to drink is a great way to thank them for their hard work.

Ice-cold water or soda doesn’t cost much, so open up the refrigerator and offer away!

If you have anything left in the kitchen, why not whip up some snacks to send with them on their next job?

Cookies taste delicious any time of day, especially when they come straight out of the oven!

Place Valuable Items in Your Car

Now, this doesn’t mean you should put breakables in your glove compartment.

However, there are valuable items that you can place into your car that won’t take up much space or be at risk of being broken or dropped while moving day is underway.

Cash and other valuable items like jewelry should be placed in the trunk of your car so it will be easy for you to access when you need them but out of the way during the relocation process!

Keeps Children and Pets Away From the Movers

There are few home projects that are as big of disruption as moving day.

The longer you can keep your children and pets away from the movers, the less likely they are to disrupt or distract them while they work.

Your mover will appreciate being able to focus on their job without running back and forth chasing your children or trying to herd your pets out of the way every thirty seconds!

If keeping an eye on them becomes too much, don’t be afraid to ask a friend or family member for help.

Do Some Bit of Cleaning Before The Mover Arrive

Before the movers arrive, take a look around your home and see what is in view.

Does your living room need a good sweep before the mess gets taken out with the rest of your stuff?

Do you have any spots on your walls from those pictures that were too hard to remove?

Once everything starts getting packed away into boxes, it will be a lot harder for you to find that time or energy to do some cleaning!

Instead of spending all day scrubbing every floorboard by hand, just spend fifteen minutes straightening up before they get there.

Stay Out of Your Mover’s Way

No matter how tempting it may be, try not to follow your movers around while they work.

They are there to do a job, and the last thing you want is for them to get distracted because you’re getting in their way more than helping!

Just keep yourself busy doing something productive until they are finished packing up your belongings.

With these tips, your move should go smoothly even if you have nothing but time on your hands!

Be Ready With Your Payment

One of the worst experiences that you can have is having your movers show up only to find out that you are not ready to pay them.

If they’re there, then even if your credit card is maxed out, you need to be able to come up with some payment for them!

Make sure that you are never caught off guard when it comes time to hand over cash or a check.

That being said, don’t be afraid to ask what forms of payment are accepted before moving day arrives.

Most companies will accept cash, checks, and credit cards, so everyone has options!
