Complete the Moving Checklist
Try to complete all the tasks below on the moving day checklist prior to move day so that you can be home during the loading process. Many times the driver will have questions that only you can answer. It is important that you or someone you’ve designated be available throughout the loading process. It’s best to utilize this moving day checklist prior to the actual arrival of the truck.
Clearly mark and set aside items you don't want loaded
This will remind you to tell the driver what not to load as you conduct your preload walkthrough. Make sure your important paperwork pertaining to the move doesn’t get packed and shipped with your household goods.
Pack special items for the kids
Have the kids pack a box of their “special” items. Point this box out to the driver so it’s one of the first to be unloaded. You may want to arrange for someone to take care of the kids (and pets) while the movers are packing and loading your items. Have the caregiver bring the kids back home prior to the truck leaving as it important for young children to understand where their belongings are going.

Point out special items
Before the driver leaves
Find out as many details as you can prior to the driver leaving your residence. The driver may give you your delivery window. Keep in mind that it is really only an estimate at the time of loading. Many factors can change the schedule for the driver, so try to remain flexible. If you have a delivery spread understand that you can and may be delivered on any one of those days. Take one last sweep of the house before the driver leaves. Look through all closets, shelves, in the garage, attic, crawl space, storage unit, under the stairs, on the walls and any place else things may be hiding. You do not want to find out, after the driver is on the way, something was left behind.
