There is no doubt there has been a fair amount of planning that has gone into your move. We are also confident that you are most likely not completely stress-free. You are not alone; moving is one of the most stressful events people go through. The good news is that moving day is just one sleep away. At Bekins, we like to provide our customers with moving tips to make it a seamless process, and we've compiled some things to do the night before the big move.

Check In With The Moving Company

Working with a moving services company will make your life and move much easier. Although the movers are experts at what they do, there are still a few things you need to get crossed off the moving checklist. Check in with them to confirm the time they will be showing up at your place, make sure they know the address of your new home, and verify they will have a place to park once there. On that note, be sure you know where the best place is for the moving truck to park.

Pack An Essentials Box

At this point in the move, your walls are probably echoing, and you feel like you live in an empty box. You aren't wrong. During a move, it is inevitable that you will lose track of where each item is. To help get yourself and your family through the first few days at the new place, pack an essentials box containing towels, snacks, medication, pet supplies, toiletries, and anything else you can't live without. Be sure to put this box aside and label it, so it doesn't get tucked in the back of a moving truck.

Plan Ahead

It probably feels like your life has been a constant "planning ahead" situation. Rest assured, as it relates to moving, it's almost over. Accept that you will likely not cook in your new home when you move in. Plan meals ahead of time, whether that's making some beforehand or planning to order food in. Scrambling to feed yourselves and your family at the last minute will only delay the moving process and cause additional stress.
