My moving day is approaching and Im getting nervous about it. I want to make sure that Im fully prepared for the movers to arrive, but I feel like I might miss a few things. I just want this move to be hassle-free, so what preparations will ensure that everything will go smoothly on moving day?

As moving day draws nearer, you might feel yourself getting a little anxious, but it's nothing that the proper preparation can't fix. If you want your movers to arrive on moving day and be in and out of your house as quickly as possible, you'll have to have a few things taken care of prior to moving day.

For example, having a clear-cut moving schedule will certainly help things move along very smoothly on the big day. Knowing exactly when the movers are scheduled to show up and having all of your boxes close to the door for easy pick-up and loading will speed the process up considerably. Also, prepare your kids and pets for the move by keeping them out of the way of the movers and placing them in a safe spot for them to keep busy while the move is in progress.

Another way to prepare for the moving day is to protect your house from the hazards of moving that will typically occur when the movers arrive to carry out your boxes and furniture. This means placing plastic protectors on your doorways and any corners to protect them from scratches and dents and place some rugs down for the movers to walk on so they don't damage the carpets or floors.

Before the movers arrive, doing one more quick walkthrough of your home and double-checking the inventory and all of your boxes is a good way to ensure that you are not missing anything important and that everything is right where it needs to be, ready for the movers to arrive and load everything onto the truck.
