Moving day precautions and safety tips

The day of the move can be great or it can be a disaster. Since you have called Monterey Peninsula movers, you can be sure that they will take care of your items, and, regarding that, there will be no disasters. Still, there are come moving day precautions you can take to protect yourself from much bigger disasters that can happen if you do not put your safety first. We are here to remind you what to do to avoid such situations.

Moving day precautions you should take seriously

When moving, as mentioned, a lot of things can go wrong. For example, if you have previously hired packing services and now you have a smaller box containing heavy parts of a cabinet, you can hurt your back trying to lift it. That is why a precaution would be to label all of the boxes so you know which one you can lift and which one you cannot.

Not lifting big and heavy boxes is one moving day precaution and safety tip we emphasize.

Do not:

  1. Do your movers job, they are professionals and they do not need any moving day precautions, you do.
  2. Definitely do not lift anything because you can get hurt very easily. 
  3. Also, do not disturb your movers while they are working because you can distract them and then everyone can get hurt.
  4. Use quality moving supplies.

Proper protection

Honestly, the best protection for you would be to not get in the way of the movers and stay back. Still, if you are participating in the move, keep your distance from them, especially when they are lifting and carrying objects. Whether the objects are big, small, light, or heavy, they can fall and hurt both you and the person who was carrying them. All in all, do not get in the way and if you can, wear a mask so that you do not breathe in dust.

Organize

One big recommendation of ours is organization. A proper organization will help you keep up with the plan. That way, you can make sure everyone is safe and following the protocol. Another moving day precaution measure we think is useful is to make a list of boxes and their labels. By doing this, you can keep track of what is being carried out of your home and not lose anything.

Prepare everything or the arrival of the movers

It would be great if you could prepare your home in advance. Organize the boxes you can lift and make room so that the movers have space to operate. Open all of the windows so that you can have fresh air and make sure that your kids and pets if you have any, are not in the way of the move for their and everyone’s safety. 

These were our moving day precautions and safety tips

Everything we have mentioned is something we would do. It is always better to be safe than sorry and that is why moving day precautions are very important. As long as you are organized and prepared, everything will be fine. Enjoy your new life in the State of California! We wish you good luck!
