Posted on: November 10, 2016 | by: Moving Company l Algonquin, IL & Chicago, IL November 11, 2016

When you hire a residential moving company to help you with your move, you may be wondering what you can expect on moving day. If this is the case, you’re in luck because Advantage has decided to compile this useful outline of exactly what will happen on the day of your move. Once you read it, you are bound to be more prepared and less overwhelmed with the entire moving process.

Why Utilize Residential Moving? 

Prior to the day of the move, you will work with the residential moving company to determine a time for the movers to arrive on moving day. In most cases, they will come to your home in the early morning to ensure that there is enough time to get all of your belongings loaded onto the moving truck and out of your home.

Once the movers arrive, they will introduce themselves and go over some paperwork with you. During this time, any questions or concerns will be addressed. The paperwork will need to be signed before the actual loading process can begin.

Following introductions and paperwork, residential moving professionals will conduct a thorough walk-through. A walk-through involves inspecting every room of your home so that they can determine the best way to transport your possessions onto the moving truck.

After the walk-through, movers will begin to load your heaviest items onto the moving truck. All furniture and valuable items will be padded and wrapped with special moving blankets to ensure safe relocation and a reduced risk of scratches or dents. Medium sized and lighter items will be loaded last.

A second walk-through will be performed to make sure that your home is clear of possessions and everything has been loaded. Once the delivery address has been confirmed, the residential moving professionals will meet you at your new home to transport items out of the truck and into your new space. Before the movers leave, final costs will be reviewed and final paperwork will need to be signed.
