People prepare for the packing and loading process of moving day, but most people don’t think about what happens when the moving truck rolls away.

As Charleston movers, Azalea Moving & Storage can help you prepare for every step of the move, including moving day. Here are a few tips to help prepare for the big day:

  • Keep Important Documents with You- When you are packing the items you want to keep with you during your move, be sure to pack a container with all of your important documents.  This will ensure that you have all of this important information with you and will help protect you from identity theft and fraud.
  • Do a Last Minute Sweep- Check all of the rooms, closets, and built-ins to make sure you didn’t leave anything behind. This is also something you should be doing as you pack to ensure you don’t miss a whole section of the kitchen or a whole closet that you have to stuff in your car.
  • Leave Items for New Owners- If you are leaving your appliances, be sure to put the user manuals in the same place as the keys, garage door opener, etc. Leaving these items someplace easy to spot, like the kitchen counter, will ensure they see this valuable information.
  • Prepare for the Road Ahead- Wear comfy clothes, pack in route entertainment, make hotel reservations, and prepare snacks to help make your trip a little easier. The morning of, be sure to eat a good breakfast or last meal in your hometown before heading out and check the weather to avoid surprises and hangry passengers.

Long travel days are never fun, especially when they are filled with the stress and emotions of moving away. Preparing for the day will help you be ready for the long road ahead of you so you can say goodbye and look forward to a new beginning.
