Check if anything is missing from your list, or from the moving companies when they arrive. Checking the list and being careful can ensure you that all your belongings will arrive safely!
  2. Kids/pets: Small kids and pets can easily be harm during the moving day process, which is why adults have to make sure they are out of the way. If possible, hire a babysitter for them on moving day, or put them into a room where they can play with toys or watch movies during the move.

This is a great way to show your movers that you appreciate their hard work. If possible, make sure to leave them a tip when they are finished moving!
  5. Lastly, when you finally arrived at your new home destination, get ready to sign the bills and say thank you to the movers. Double check on everything by walking through your new home to guarantee your shipments has arrived safely

What is a DDT?

DDT sounds like you’re being charged double for drive time but that’s a mistake! The California Public Utilities Commission requires all moving companies to charge DDT on hourly rated moves. DDT means you are charged for the time between the old house (origin) and the new house and the moving company is responsible for the drive time between the warehouse and the origin. DDT actually SAVES you money!
