Moving day is a very stressful day. Something nearly always go wrong, and everyone is feeling anxious and unsettled. For example, when it comes to moving companies in Los Angeles, the stress may increase to the late arrivals because of traffic. Lessen the stress with these moving tips.

  • Get up early. Try to arrange the movers' arrival at a fairly reasonable hour, so that you can wake up early, shower, and get yourself together. You need some time to be mentally prepared as well physically.
  • Eat breakfast. Some people sleep until the last possible moment, and then dash about to get started. Then their blood sugar drops and they're crabby and confused. Avoid this pitfall by eating.
  • Dress for the occasion. Wear comfortable clothing. Avoid things that tie since they can get caught on things and cause an injury. Loose-fitting clothes can also prove to be a hazard. If you are traveling for your move, factor in a weather or climate change. You may need a sweater or pair of shorts in your car.
  • Make sure your cell is charged. Make sure you have your wall chargers in your car along with your car chargers. Ditto your family members.
  • Make lists ahead of time so you don't forget things. You need the cell numbers of your movers and drivers. You need lists of boxes and their contents. You need the chores that still need doing. You will get stressed and forget. Lists are a lifesaver.
  • If you have friends coming to help, make sure everyone has their own task so people don't feel useless while things are left undone.
  • Make sure all of your boxes are packed before the movers arrive.
  • Arrange for food during the moving day. Moves are long and drawn out. People get tired. What are you going to feed people? Pizza? Sandwiches? Be sure to include some sweets. Drinks will need to be provided as well. It is customary to feed the movers, but not required.
  • Arrange for someone to entire your children while the truck is being packed up. If you have pets, you need someone to care for them as well.
  • Be prepared to clean up after the movers. Do not make the mistake of packing up or discarding all of your cleaning products because you will need to clean up after the truck is loaded. Otherwise, you will have to hire someone.
  • Make sure the movers have directions to your new destination.
  • Make sure you have the money to pay your movers. They will hold your belongings until you pay in accordance to California Public Utilities Commission's regulations.
  • Use your inventory moving list when you arrive to insure everything made it. You will need that list to file a complaint with the company if there is a problem.
