Hello, and thank you for visiting!

You should certainly be present when the movers are conducting your move--for a variety of reasons.

  • To answer any questions the movers have, especially if they are packing your goods or dissassembling/reassembling furniture.
  • To tell the movers what rooms you would like certain boxes and furniture placed in your new home.
  • To supervise the move and ensure your goods are being handled with care.
  • To witness any damage done to your belongings or home due to negligence.
  • To offer beverages, lunch, and/or cash tips for quality service.

A move is a complicated and expensive venture, with your entire household of belongings at stake should anything go awry. While you should certainly conduct thorough research on any moving company you hire to ensure that they are professional and reliable, you should never trust them to handle your entire move or be inside your home unsupervised.
