Make a note of your shipment registration number and keep it with you in case you need to call your mover with questions about your shipment

Before the moving company leaves for your destination residence, give him a phone number where you can be reached. It is also a good idea to provide him with an alternate contact in case you can’t be reached.

Label all your boxes, make sure to designate where each box goes.  Mark fragile boxes with bold lettering.  For things you know you will need right away, make a note on those to open first.

Toilet paper, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee (and pot), soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are some of the essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and ask the movers to load it last so that it will be unloaded first.

Remove bulbs before packing your lamps, to prevent breakage.

Clean and dry out your refrigerator,  put a handful of fresh coffee, baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh.

Take a photo of how your electronics (tv’s, computers, etc…) are connected so you can remember how and where all the wires go.
