What to Do the Night Before Your Move

Posted on December 14th, 2022

Preparing for a major move can be a stressful situation. Whether you’re looking to simply orchestrate a local move within a few miles or embark on a long-distance move, there are some things you can do to prepare the night before you leave your current home. 

When your moving company in Tulsa or OKC shows up in the morning, you want to be ready to go without much to do.

Here are some of the things you should consider that will keep the morning of your move running smoothly and with as little stress as possible.

Confirm Details with Your Moving Company in OKC or Tulsa

Some miscommunications can happen even if you’ve hired the best moving company. Something as simple as an unexpected delay could impede your ability to move on the day you expected to. 

You should always call your moving company the day before you’re planning to leave. Confirm that all the details are correct, so they show up at the right time and location. 

If you’re a nervous wreck about your move and want to quell some of your worries, feel free to call them up as early as the week before to touch base and ensure everything is still on schedule.

Pack the Rest of Your Items

You’ve probably done a good deal of packing ahead of time. You may have even utilized packing services to get your items packed well.

However, there are always some essentials that you’ll need until the last minute. The night before is the time to pack up the rest of those items you won’t be using in the last 12 or so hours you’re living in your current residence. 

This could be some random cookware, kitchen items, bathroom products, cleaning supplies, or clothing. If you don’t need the item in the morning, have it packed and ready to go.

Take Apart Your Large Furniture Items

When you hire a moving company, you’re often expected to pay extra for large items that need to be taken apart and reassembled during the move. You can save some money by taking these items apart on your own. Just ensure that the movers know that you’re doing this so you can receive an accurate final invoice.

While taking apart large furniture items can be a money-saving option, a company like Bigger Better Movers that has this assembly service built into each move can still save you money while preventing the potential for injury during the DIY disassembly process.

Have Vehicles in Their Places

There may be some vehicles moving around that need to take place for the moving truck to pull up to your main door. 

If you wait for your movers to arrive in the morning and then have to spend ten to twenty minutes moving vehicles, this takes time away from an efficient move. If you live in an apartment building, try talking to the other tenants ahead of time so that they know you’re moving, and you’d appreciate it if they could have their vehicles out of the way for the morning so everything can be easily loaded up.

Pack Up Your Automobile

You may be moving some items in your car, even if you have movers bringing their trucks to your residence. If you can have your personal items packed in your vehicle ahead of time and you know they will be safe, this is one less step to address in the morning.
