Families and homeowners who are in the process of moving and relocating are more focused on the preparation towards the moving day. They have planned the packing, created the checklist, and organized their belongings.
But when the schedule comes, most of these homeowners get lost and don’t know what to do. With all the packing and organizing done, professional movers in Dubai usually advise their clients to do the following:
- Recount and tally the boxes
Since all your things are already packed and ready for transport, one important thing that you need to do is to check your boxes and count them again. You need to know the total boxes and parcels subject for transport so you will have a reference once your belongings are delivered to your new location. It would also be best if all the boxes are labeled appropriately so your movers would know where to place them once they are delivered and ready to be unpacked. Moving experts advise that boxes should be labeled per room to guide the movers and the packers.
- Double-check the list of your movers
Most movers and packers in Dubai ask their clients for a complete list of belongings, along with the floor plan, to serve as their reference and guide when collecting, transporting, and unpacking your belongings. Be sure to provide them a complete list of your things and the list of labeled boxes. On the moving day, double-check the list you provided and see if you missed something. This step is necessary as you will not be able to go back to your previous location if you missed a box or a parcel. After transporting the boxes, check every room and see if there are items or boxes left for transport.
- Ask the movers about the timeline and logistics
During the moving day, you need to talk to your movers and confirm with them the logistics and schedule of delivery. It is important that you double-check with them the time of delivery so you will know when to expect the arrival of these packages.
- Clean and sweep your old place
If you have a property specialist who will be in-charge of cleaning your old place, then it would be great. But if you don’t have one, you might need to do the cleaning yourself. Cleaning your old space is necessary as a courtesy to the next owner of the space. Be sure you have all the cleaning materials with you so you can start with this task once all the boxes are loaded for transport.
