Preparing for your Next Day Move

Moving boxes 

Moving is a tricky and chaotic process – but if you’re well prepared, it can be smooth, easy, and maybe even pleasant! One great way to ensure that Moving Day is simpler is by preparing various tasks on the night before the move. In this blog entry, the moving team here at Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage will provide you a guide as to exactly what you should do on the night before your commercial move or residential move.

Verify the Details of your move

Contact your moving company early on the day before your move. Make sure to verify the time the movers will arrive, if they will be providing any extra services, whether you have moving insurance, and any other contract stipulations. If there’s any last minute changes to your moving needs, let them know before they show up.

Moving Essentials Kit

Make sure to pack a bag of moving essentials that will travel directly with you rather than in the moving truck. This should include your phone charger, changes of clothes, your passport, IDs, any medication, and any other important items. You will feel much better in knowing that all your valuable items are in a single place on your body.

Unplugging and Cleaning Appliances

Make sure to unplug any empty any appliances like fridges, washers, or driers. This includes disconnecting from hoses and leaving the door open to help it dry out. Fridges also need to be emptied and defrosted.

Snacks and Drinks

Aside from your moving essentials bag, you’ll want to bring snacks and drinks alongside to help make your move smoother. Items like electrolyte water and granola bars can prove useful in a mid day energy crash. Make sure to pack a ton of water bottles if you don’t like electrolyte drinks, as it’s easy to get dehydrated in the hustle and bustle.

Kids Entertainment Options

If you’re moving with children, make sure to bring a variety of entertainment options for them, or create a zone of the house in which your children can play without disturbing the ove. A laptop or a tablet is a great choice – just make sure to download videos ahead of time in the event that your Wi-Fi will be disabled.

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Make sure to get a great night’s sleep the night before your move. Eat a nutritious full dinner, and plan your day and evening to finish any pertinent tasks early so you have enough time to settle in and have a relaxing night. Don’t worry about packing up your bedding – you can always do that in the morning!
