Everyone gets excited when they are about to move. It can be a fun and tiring experience all at the same time. There are certain things you should do to ensure you have a safe move, whether you are moving to Brentwood Tn, Franklin, Nashville or elsewhere.
The first thing you need to do is determine what day you are going to be moving. The people who should know about it are the ones who will be helping you move. Moving is a hard job and very few people volunteer just to be nice. The ones who did offer are your friends and family. It goes without saying they will expect the same from you one day.
You will also want to make sure you have the proper moving equipment when you are moving. Things like a cart dolly or two wheeled truck, as they are sometimes called, will be needed to move heavy things like the refrigerator, freezer, washer and dryer. Even if you have ten men ready and willing, you do not want someone hurting themselves because of your move.
Before everyone arrives to help with the move, make sure every thing is packed up, or at least almost every thing. This will ensure no one is standing around waiting to grab a box. Having every thing ready to go and waiting will make the entire process much easier for everyone.
You will want to make sure the walk ways and stair ways are completely cleared. You do not want anyone tripping and falling. This is something which should be done periodically throughout the day to keep everyone safe. People will ask for help from someone carrying a box down the steps, that person in turn will put the box on the steps and help with what ever needs doing, completely forgetting about the box. The next thing you know someone is coming down with a chair or another box and does not see the first one, trips and goes sailing(or thumping more likely) down the stairs. Accidents happen like this all the time.
It is also useful to have a cooler located somewhere which has a supply of ice and cold bottled water in it. This is especially good if you are moving during the summer months. People will get extremely hot during the moving process and you want to keep everyone hydrated.
One last tip when it comes to having a safe moving experience. Keep the doors and windows locked. There are two reasons for this. The first is obvious. You do not want any unwanted guests helping themselves to what ever has been moved or still needs to be moved. The other is the weather factor. It never fails that when you are in one house, it will be raining at the other or vice versa. You can keep floors dry and slip proof by keeping the windows shut when you leave one house for the other.
You can also divide your help into teams. Locate one in the new house and keep the other one at the old house. As the trucks show up to the new place, the second team can unload. This gives the first team a needed break. When the first team comes back to load up again, the second team is taking their break. They can also help start to unpack. This keeps all your helpers rested and ready to go!
