If you’ve found yourself preparing for a move, but aren’t quite sure what you should be doing ahead of time, E.E. Ward is here to help! Our moving services and pre-move checklist can help to make your move a stress free one.
Things To Do 1 Week Before Your Move:
Speak with your moving coordinator about any last minute details and give your moving company (hopefully E.E. Ward!) your itinerary and emergency contact numbers.
Confirm the arrival time of the moving van and ensure that parking for it will be readily available.
Place items not intended for transport in a safe and well-labeled place.
Pack a box of personal items that will be needed immediately at your new residence. Keep this box in your car or load it onto the moving truck last.
Disconnect major appliances and prepare them for the move. This includes defrosting and wiping out your refrigerator.
Drain oil and gas from power equipment such as lawn mowers and remove ink cartridges from printers.
Notify your moving company of large specialty items that might require additional servicing and packaging such as pendulum clocks, pool tables, hot tubs, and large screen TVs.
