Everything You can do Before Your Atlanta Movers Arrive

Today’s the big day! You’re moving to Atlanta. Our All My Sons Moving & Storage team is thrilled to be able to help you move into your new home. To make your life easier, our packing services are customized to your individual move and include high quality packing products to keep your belongings safe.

The night before your moving day make sure to go to bed early to get a good night’s sleep- you have a long day ahead of you. Now the day is here! Make sure you are packed and ready to move. If you are using our customized packing services and packing products, then make sure your belongings are organized and clean for our Atlanta movers to get the process started right away. Make sure your phone is charged and you’ve eaten some breakfast. Take photos of your belongings and boxes to ensure they all make it to their destination in good condition and avoid any issues with your Atlanta movers. If you’ve hired reputable Atlanta movers, make sure you plan to be there when your moving team shows up. You should also ensure there is space for the movers to park the truck for easy loading/unloading.

If you have kids or pets, arrange for them to stay with friends or family during the day of the move. There is a lot going on during moving day, and having to look after a child or pet while simultaneously coordinating a move is too overwhelming. This way you can focus on getting the move done. Your kids and pets will have more fun away from the craziness of the move anyways.

Plan to bring your valuables and necessities with you- don’t pack them away. Important documents, valuable jewelry, a phone charger, change of clothes and a toothbrush are all things you don’t want to pack away in the truck for your move. Make sure you have a prepacked “carry on” bag ready for your move.

Have some sort of food and drink prepared in case the packing and loading process takes longer than expected. There’s nothing worse than moving on an empty stomach. Make sure you have water bottles and some snacks available for you and your family. It’s always a nice gesture to offer snacks and drinks to your Atlanta movers completing the packing services as well.

Make sure you have already arranged payment with your moving company, to ensure the process goes smoothly. Have cash for tips on hand as well. Most Atlanta movers will not be able to load/unload until they are paid in full. Ensure that you have the correct directions to the new home and a copy to give to your Atlanta movers to avoid the frustration of getting lost. Most importantly, relax! Moving day can be stressful but take a deep breath and know that you are on the way to an amazing new home.
