  • If you are using a moving company or friends and family, specify certain unloading areas.
  • Make sure there are ample walkways for moving large pieces as well as boxes of your belongings.

  • Remember to meet the needs of those helping in your move by supplying them with food, beverages and restroom facilities.
  • Lastly, if you are using a moving company, please remember to read and sign all paperwork, documenting anything that transpired during the moving process.
