What to Expect on Moving Day

The big day has come. No, not your wedding day or the birth of your child. It’s moving day. And as your Minneapolis professional moving services experts, RJ Moving knows very well the stresses and conflicts that can occur on moving day. That’s why we want to make the process as effortless and stress-free for you as possible.

There’s a lot to do, and a short amount of time to do it in. Therefore, it’s important to have all your ducks in a row on the day of your move. Here is a list of things you should have ready or be prepared to do on moving day:

  • Put aside and take along all important documents and paperwork (medical records, birth certificates, etc.).
  • Pack drinks and snacks for you and your family.
  • Have travel documents on standby, if applicable. This means things like tickets, hotel reservations and so forth.
  • Think about what else will need packed and how much time will be needed to complete the job.
  • Have all the boxes labeled and ready by the door to be hauled out. This is important, as it makes the process go faster and saves you money.

So, that’s what you should have ready to go by the time we get to your current address. But, what about the actual moving day process?

  • Finalizing cleaning and similar services.
  • Check to make sure everything is packed.
  • Be sure that your “Open First” box is the first one to be packed and the first one to be taken out.
  • Stay with the movers until the job is done, and make sure our driver has your new address, so he or she knows where to go.
  • Have ready everything you need for the trip to your new address.
  • Once loading has been finished, make sure you have locked all windows and doors, and turned off all switches and appliances.

Moving With Pets? Tips to Follow

Moving can be hard on people. But, it can be even harder on your pets. For a beloved pet dog or cat, the moving process can be very stressful. As a Minneapolis moving company, the RJ Moving team has seen our share of pets being impacted by moving. Here are some ways you can make your move easier on your furry friends:

Get veterinary records

Are you moving far from Minneapolis or wherever you live currently? Then you’ll need to get a new vet, so it’s best to obtain their records to pass along to whoever will be your new vet. Depending on where you are moving to, your pet may need more vaccinations, medications and health certificates. Keep your current veterinarian’s phone number handy in case of an emergency or if your new vet would like to speak to your old one.

Keep your pets away from the packing and loading/unloading

Your dog, cat or other pet may feel vulnerable on moving day, so it’s best to quarantine them off to an area with ventilation that is safe and quiet. The bathroom is usually a good place. Make sure to make the area with a sign indicating where the pets are. Even if your pet isn’t feeling vulnerable, it’s best to do this as the loading and unloading process involves open doors, which can lead your pet to escape.

Prep your new home

Your new home might confused or frighten your pet. Therefore, it’s imperative that upon arrival at your new home, you put out all the things it will need, like food, water, a litter box, toys, etc. That way, your pet can feel a little bit of comfort and normalcy during this tough transition.

Let us help you make the moving process easier. Call us now at 612-384-2028.

Minneapolis Movers: 4 Things on Your Moving List to Think About Now

Are you moving in a few weeks? You have fallen in love with your new home and you have your Minneapolis movers booked, now all you have to do is start the packing process. Though moving day may seem so far away, there are some things you should start thinking about now. By beginning preparations a substantial amount of time in advance, you have a better chance of getting it all done. Don’t wait until the last minute and stress about what’s going where. Here are four things you should start thinking about now:

1. Food: Food is tricky because if you’re not careful, it can spoil. Be sure to eat up all food that could potential cause a problem. Plan to defrost your fridge the day before you move. It will be important to have a clean, dry fridge on moving day.

2. Cable/ Internet: Be sure to arrange to have your cable and Internet transferred to your new home. This is one thing that tends to slip through the cracks. While a couple days without Internet aren’t the end of the world, it sure is inconvenient.

3. Disassemble: Disassemble anything that needs to be disassembled. When your Minneapolis movers show up, they will be ready to get started right away. By having things disassembled and packed, you can ensure a timelier move.

4. Manage Fragile Items: Start collecting anything fragile and make sure you pack them separately in boxes labeled “fragile.” By taking extra considerations ahead of time to have them packed away, you’ll avoid them getting broken in the shuffle.

Movers Help Envision the Other End of Things

When you’re moving, it’s understandable you are focused on the home in which you’re currently living. You have a lot to think about. Boxes need packed and furniture needs wrapped. But, you can’t forget completely about the end location. It is easier for our team of Twin Cities movers to help if you have a plan in place. Utilize our capabilities while you have us there. It would be a shame if you had to rearrange your entire home after we left because you didn’t know where you wanted things. In this blog, we’re going to cover some simple steps you can take to have at least a basic plan in place.

Room Assignment
Go through your new home and figure out what you’re going to use each room for. Assign a name to each room because it will help you get your thoughts organized. If you have children, let them choose their rooms prior to moving day. It may be a good idea to even label each room with a sticky note, so it’s easier for the movers to place your belongings in the correct location.

Furniture
It will be important to get all the furniture close to where you want it. We want to make sure the dinner table makes it to the dining room and each bed set makes it to the correct bedroom. Have a clear plan of which room you would like each piece of furniture placed in. If you want to reorganize from there, go for it. But, take advantage of our crew while you have them at your home!

Be Present
Plan on being present the day you have scheduled the movers to come. The best laid plan is only as good as the person with the plan. If we can’t communicate with you during the moving process, it will make our job harder. We want to help you to the best of our ability, but that requires your input.

How Weather Plays a Role on Moving Day

If you’re about to move, you’ve probably spent a lot of time preparing. Transferring the contents of one home to another is quite the undertaking! While you’re making all the necessary preparations to move, don’t forget to check the weather. Mother Nature can have an impact on your moving day. While the team at RJ Moving is trained to deal with all types of natural weather phenomena, it is still important to be aware of the weather forecast. If you are moving anywhere around Minnesota, like Minneapolis, professional moving services can greatly reduce the stress associated with moving. Help them help you by being prepared for adverse weather.

Sunshine

This is exactly what everyone wants for their move. If you have a fair day, take advantage of it. Help your movers by being prepared so they can complete your move quickly and efficiently. Have parking available and boxes packed.

Rain

Rain poses a couple of problems. First and foremost, you need to protect your items. If you’re going to be using cardboard boxes, it may be a good idea to shrink-wrap them in case of adverse weather. Any furniture will need to be covered, especially if its cloth or wood. It is common practice for us to wrap furniture in a blanket, but an added layer of plastic won’t hurt. Another concern on a rainy day is slippery conditions. Be patient with your movers and help to make their job as easy as possible.

Snow

Snow on your moving day can be a real bummer. Extra precautions and considerations will need to be made on a snowy day. Be sure to remove snow and ice from your driveway, walkways, stairs and porches before your movers arrive. Also, don’t forget about the end location. The safety of our customers and our employees is our number one priority, so be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
