Have Cash on Hand
Visit the ATM and withdraw a sufficient amount of cash to last you for the next few days. This is especially important if you are changing your banking institution, but it's also convenient for any other situations that may arise.
Get Ready for the Movers
Many moving companies will do the boxing and packing for you. However, if you've packed some items yourself, make sure they are clearly marked and packed well to avoid any damages.
Also plan to provide water and soft drinks, or coffee if it's a chilly moving day, to the moving crew. If the move is an all-day event, you may want to order pizza or sandwiches for lunch. Although tipping is not required, it's a common practice. Customary tips are $20-$25 per mover. It's best to give the entire tip to the supervisor and ask that it be distributed to the crew.
Communicate with the Police Department
It's good to let the local police department or any neighborhood watch members know that you're moving. Give them the exact day and time that they can expect to see movers at your current home. Also be sure to let them know exactly how long your home will be empty. When contacting the police department, use the local number and not 911.
