What to do when movers are packing your stuff
Having analyzed the pros and cons of Move Yourself vs. Hiring Movers, you have made the smart decision to hire professional packers and movers to take care of your house move for you. After all, it’s the choice that makes a lot of sense when you’re moving long distance, when you can’t persuade your friends to help you out, or when you just don’t wish to go through all the stressful hassle of moving on your own.
And with Moving day almost knocking on your front door, you may start to wonder what to do when movers arrive. What to do during your full-service move is definitely an important question to answer now that professionals are taking over your residential move:
Should you have done something before movers arrive?
Should you offer to help your movers? And if yes, how?
Should you just stand aside and let movers do what they do best?
Be prepared for your packers and movers
Before you can worry about what to do while movers are packing up your things, you need to make sure you are ready for the arrival of the pros
Here are the major things you have to do to prepare for movers and packers:
Have only items worth packing. Inventory your home before your packers come and leave only the things that you must take with you at all costs. Yes, get rid of unwanted stuff to cut your moving expenses and save time, money and space in the long run. How to get rid of unwanted stuff?
Defrost and clean up your fridge. You can’t do this task on Moving day itself because, even if you choose to clean your fridge after the move, the defrosting process alone can take approximately 8 hours
Pack up essentials boxes. It’s a good idea to start preparing your boxes of absolute essentials a few days prior to Moving day. Important items such as documents, valuables, prescription medicine, and a number of other life-savers should never leave your side anyway. What to pack in an open-first box?

Things to Expect from a Moving and Storage Service
Around 12% of people in the US move each year. While some of those tens of millions of people will do it all on their own, some will use a moving and storage service. It’s a little nerve-wracking to trust all of your worldly possessions to the care of complete strangers. While you can replace clothes or bookshelves with ease, heirlooms and mementos often prove one-of-a-kind.
A professional moving service will want to schedule the move well in advance of the move date. This helps them ensure they’ll have trucks and movers available. You should start calling around at least 2 months ahead to get quotes and lock in a service by around 6 weeks out.
Most movers offer packing services. While you aren’t obligated to use them, professional packing service benefits include:
reduced risk of personal injury
reduced risk of property damage
less stress from not having to pack
On moving day, the movers pack and load your belongings onto the truck, or just load the belongings you packed. They handle the transport to either your new home or to a storage facility. If you need to stay in an apartment until you finish closing on a new house, for example, you’d want to store most of your belongings. Once your house is ready, the movers retrieve your belongings from storage and deliver them.
Climate Controlled Storage
Some of your belongings, like ceramic dishes, can tolerate getting stored without climate control. Many of your belongings, however, might suffer in the high heat, extreme cold or drastic changes in humidity. Wooden furniture can warp, split or twist under those conditions. Books will grow mildew or mold. Old photographs will fade as the paper and ink deteriorate.
Whether you’re moving house or putting your belongings into storage, packing materials will be an essential.
In order to keep your items in a safe and secure condition, you need to make sure they’re carefully wrapped. Not only will this minimise breakages, but it’ll also help to protect your belongings from dust, the atmosphere and other potential damage.
Quality packing materials

Bubble wrap is something that any good house mover can’t get enough of. You can use it to wrap everything from crockery to shoes and it offers an extra layer of padding just when you need it most. Without a good amount of bubble wrap, you can occasionally expose your goods to higher chance of wear and tear during the course of your remove; hence why Britannia will always recommend its use.
