What do you do on delivery Day?

Delivery day is generally way less stressful than moving day. Fortunately, as long as you're organized, it shouldn't be too big of a hassle.

Delivery day is generally way less stressful than moving day. Delivery day signifies the light at the end of the tunnel, after all. However, the move isn't completely finished once the movers arrive at your new home. There's still a lot of work to be done -- fortunately, as long as you're organized, it shouldn't be too big of a hassle. The following are some of the things that you will have to do come delivery day:

  • Make sure someone is there - Either you or a designee will need to be at the final location in order to accept delivery and to provide access to the property, including the house and the garage or shed where you want boxes to be placed.
  • Provide instructions - First of all, you'll need to show the movers where you want them to come in and out of the house. Then, someone is going to have to direct them to where they should place boxes and furniture. The movers will take furniture up to the bedrooms where they need to go so that you don't have to do any heavy lifting later. If you can't be there, then you need to provide these instructions to your stand-in or, at the very least, provide a floor map for each room that the movers can follow.
  • Check your inventory - You should have an inventory list. If you've labeled your boxes properly, then it shouldn't be difficult to cross check. Make sure you check off every item that comes off the moving truck to ensure that all of your belongings are accounted for.
  • Check for damage - As furniture comes off the truck, take the time to inspect it for damage. If anything was damaged during transport, make sure that you make note of it on your inventory and that you take pictures of the damage.
  • Sign the bill of lading - Before you sign off on the delivery on the bill of lading, note any missing items or damage so that you can file a claim later.
  • Pay the movers - Once the move is complete, you'll have to pay the movers. If you have a stand-in handling the delivery, provide them with a certified check to pay with.
