Moving day can be scary for anyone. While 63% of adults have moved to a new community at least once, around 37% have never left their hometowns. Whether it's your very first move or you move at least once a year, the process can take an emotional toll. When moving day arrives, you may understandably feel anxious about what's to come or might be worried about your furniture and valuable possessions. If you've hired a reputable San Diego residential moving service, you should have no reason to be concerned about your belongings arriving safely to your final destination. Still, it's easy to get worked up on moving day and emotions can run high. For a smoother move, you'll want to avoid doing these three thingsp.

On Moving Day, Don't...

  • Micromanage Trusting residential movers with your possessions can be difficult for many people, but you should resist the urge to micromanage how they handle your move. You can certainly monitor what's happening, but as highly experienced professionals, they likely know how to pack and move furniture much more efficiently and safely than you do. It can be hard to let go, but if you work with a well-respected San Diego residential moving service like ours, you can be assured that we'll handle all of your possessions with great care..

  • Include Health Hazards
    You'd probably be surprised to find out that some homeowners try to get their movers to transport health or safety hazards during a move. If you need to bring perishable food items with you, you should transport them yourself. Do not pack them up for the moving truck to transport. The same goes for safety hazards like propane or gasoline. If you do need to bring them to your new location, you'll need to take them yourself.

  • Underestimate What's Being Moved
    You might be inclined to forget about certain pieces of furniture or underestimate the number of boxes you have. The problem is that your moving service will give you a quote based on the number of possessions that need to be transported. If you've vastly underestimated all there is to move, your final cost will likely be a lot harder than you bargained for. You should also prepare your movers ahead of time for any odd conditions at your final destination. If there are several flights of stairs to navigate, you may end up being charged more when you haven't warned them beforehand. When you tack on extra conditions the day of your move, you'll likely end up paying more..
