Sinclair’s Plan for Loading Your Household Goods
On moving day, your driver will prepare all of your items for shipment. A detailed inventory which includes the condition of each item will be completed for your approval (and your protection). Each item and carton will be numbered so that nothing can be misplaced throughout your move.
Once the inventory is complete, the driver and crew will begin to carefully load the van. With the eye of a craftsman, your driver will skillfully load the van to prevent any shifting of your possessions while in transit. With professional care, your furniture will be wrapped in moving blankets and secured with restraints to complete your National / Longâ€“distance / Interstate move.
Be certain to mark any items that you want to be loaded into the van last. A vacuum cleaner is usually need to clean up the empty house upon departure as well as using a broom to sweep out your new home on arrival. You may also want to plan a box of items that you will need immediately upon arrival. Essentials including soap, paper towels, toilet tissue, plastic glasses and a can opener probably should be included. Your Sinclair driver will make sure that this box is unloaded first for your convenience.
Plants & Pets
Plan for your plants. Transporting plants in the moving van is simply not recommended. You may want to move them in your car, or give them to your friends as a reminder of you. Also plan for your pets. Your Sinclair Agent can advise you regarding transportation options for your pets. Moving can be a confusing and stressful time for them too. Your best bet is to have your neighbor or veterinarian watch your pet during packing and as the van is being loaded.
