How to Prepare For a Moving Company

Moving around the Greater Boston area can be a tough process for anyone, especially if you have a large amount of possessions and furniture to move. Whether you are moving to a small apartment right in the North End, or skipping town for greener pastures in Western Massachusetts every move comes with it’s specific challenges. There are a few things you can do to ease the tension before a trusted moving company even arrives on moving day.

Tips for Preparing for a Moving Company

You can avoid stressful moving situations by taking the time to make a plan before your Boston area movers show up on moving day. Below are some tips you can utilized before the big day:

  1. Clear out unwanted junk and old stuff: When moving out of a home or apartment that you’ve been in for a while, you will find there may be a lot of unnecessary junk or extra things laying around that you do not need any more. Taking the time to sort through everything, figuring out what to toss, and then utilizing a junk removal company to take it all away will definitely take some of the weight off your back prior to moving day. As a bonus you’ll get rid of a lot of clutter leading to more space in your new home or apartment!
  2. Make a plan with the family:  Moving can take a toll on your family. The kids may have to switch up their schedule, you may have to take some time off or work- all leading to a hectic time period. If you haven’t planned ahead before the big moving day, things can go south….quick. It is important to have a meeting with your family (or roommates) to let everyone know what the course of action will be prior to, and during the move. It may be a good idea to assign everyone a ‘job’, such as handling the movers when they arrive and the other could take the kids out for the day.
  3. Get rid of materials movers will not move: Contrary to popular belief, there are some items that movers will not take due to safety concerns. Laws prohibit moving companies in Boston from taking any kind of flammable, corrosive or explosive materials. To make things easier, dispose of these types of materials safely before moving day so you don’t have to worry the day of.


These are just a few things you can check-off your moving list before movers even arrive that will help for a less-hectic moving day for you and your family.
