  1. Let them do their job

How can you help your movers the most? Just let them do their job! You may think you know just the way to get everything done perfectly, but you hired full-service movers for a reason. They are trained professionals who’ve moved many couches, boxes, and fragile items, so step aside! You’ll feel less stressed, and they won’t feel micromanaged.

  1. Finish packing before moving day

Do your movers pack for you? They do when you pay for a full-service move. If you chose not to splurge on the additional cost of packing services, make sure you finish your part of the work before they show up.

  1. Always tell the movers or label the box clearly if something is fragile

If your movers were psychic, they probably wouldn’t be your movers, so if something is fragile or requires gentle handling for any other reason, tell them! They need to know clearly and ahead of time so write it, mark it or say it, and do it sooner rather than later.

  1. Make sure they have easy, hassle-free access

Assist your movers by making sure you know where they can park their truck, how they can best access your apartment, and if there are any time limitations on parking or moving hours.

  1. Empty your drawers, armoires, and desks

Not only does it make the item heavier for your movers, it can also pose a danger with sliding drawers and shifting content. As a result, most movers won’t handle furniture or filing cabinets that still have things in them.
