The big day is fast approaching for the move, and the entire family is looking forward to getting to the new house and making it into the new home. In the days right before the movers are scheduled to arrive there are some last minute checks to make to ensure you have all the loose ends tied up and everything is ready to go.
It is also essential to make sure these things are done to avoid having your Ft. Worth moving team waiting for you to finish last minute chores. There are also a few things to do that don’t have anything to do with the movers, but they avoid having to try to manage last minute issues from your new location.
Cleaning the Fridge
It is very common to keep things in the fridge right up to the day of the move. If the new occupants are moving in immediately, unplugging the fridge may not be a concern, but it should still be completely cleaned out of food and then washed down.
Make sure that you check the fridge the night before the movers arrive. If it is going to be moved you will need to disconnect it up to two days before and ensure all of the water from the freezer compartment has drained. If you are leaving the fridge unplugged leave the door open and place an opened box of baking soda inside to keep it fresh.
Unloading the Dishwasher
Too often people forget about dishes in the dishwasher until they are unpacking at their new place. Like the fridge and freeze, make sure you check the dishwasher and leave it open to remind the kids not to put dirty dishes in the racks the day before the move.
This is a great way to enjoy a day free from cooking, just plan to eat out at one of the many top restaurants in Ft. Worth to avoid having to use dishes and then pack them for the movers.
Removing Light Bulbs from Lamps
Light bulbs are very easy to break, so remember any lamps you are moving need to be transported without the bulbs in place. You can save the bulbs and pack them in another box in bubble wrap, or just toss them out and replace them at the new home.
Checking Cupboards and Closets
The night before the Ft. Worth movers are scheduled to arrive, do a complete walk through of the home. Open all closets and cupboards, and check the kitchen and bathroom cabinets and drawers. This will ensure you don’t leave anything important behind.
Planning for movers and doing last minute checks before they arrive can make your moving day a lot easier. The company may also offer helpful moving checklists which provide great tips and ideas.
