Be there when you move
This may seem like an obvious statement, but you need to be present when your movers arrive. Being the first face to welcome them can make sure your move will go as smooth as possible and help you feel comfortable in their capabilities. If you’re not able to be present, assign a trusted and informed friend or relative to stand in for you and familiarize your movers with the area. Jake’s Moving and Storage recommends creating an inventory list of your belongings yourself in addition to the one the moving company will provide. This will help you keep track of all your items as well as their condition before the one that will be issued which you are required to sign to protect against loss or damage is given. Have a child moving into a dorm room and can’t be present? No fear, Jake’s Moving and Storage regularly provides a student moving service and understands the process, arranging for a parking pass on campus and access to dormitories in advance can streamline the whole moving process.
Have a floor plan
You know what will save you time and eliminate any confusion on moving day? Drawing a floor plan of your new home before you move and having it on hand. Draw in and number your furnishings roughly in the way you want them to be arranged in each room to assist your movers when they place the furniture. Label the furniture pieces to correspond with the numbers on the floor plan to eliminate confusion on the busy day. Jake’s Moving and Storage has years of experience with local and long distance moves and we understand how to get the most out of you moving experience.

Make sure everything flows
Scout out your neighborhood for nearby, convenient parking or make sure to clear your driveway or front curb to make way for the moving van to park. Jake’s Moving and Storage has a range of vehicles to transport your possessions and we provide both intercity and long distance moving vans. As close as your movers can get is best for ensuring no damages are incurred in the process.If you live in a building with an elevator make sure your elevator is in working order and stairs are available as well. Flow of traffic in and out of your property is key for a stress-less move. Notify your landlord beforehand if necessary that movers will need access to the area the day before.
No little ones allowed
Small children and pets can slow down your move and sometimes present a problem for movers. If possible arrange in advance to have children at a neighbor’s house or with a relative so your movers can come in and get everything done in the most efficient manner. Having your animals safely locked up or in another room keeps them out of harm’s way and will provide you with peace of mind day of.
