Helpful Tips for Moving Season

With moving season now in full swing, here are some moving tips to help companies and families deal with the stress, uncertainty, and challenges of moving.

* Keep a copy of the bill of lading and inventory for yourself before the driver leaves.

* Prior to the mover's departure, complete a final walk through of the house to make sure nothing was forgotten.

* Provide the driver with your contact information in case he needs to reach you along route.

* Give the driver the correct address of your new home or storage facility.

* For long distance moves, the name and telephone number of a contact person currently at the destination should be given.

* Provide the moving team with a fresh supply of water and restroom facilities.

* If possible, arrange for the house closing to be a day or two after the loading day in order to reduce the stress of trying to load and close your house at the same time.

* Get a good night's sleep and have a hearty breakfast the morning of the move to be prepared for the day.

* Always keep in mind that no matter how prepared you think you are, things occasionally go wrong; expect this, and accept it as just part of the moving process.

* Introduce yourself promptly to your new neighbors. You never know when you'll need to quickly borrow some item that'll help with moving.

* Relax and be patient.
