Moving Overnight? How You Can Make It Happen Without Incident

ایلیا سلطانی نژاد

Local moving services do not often accompany overnight service, but there may be one or two companies in your area that handle this type of move. If not, you will need to do it on your own. Moving at night does present its own challenges, however. Here is how you can make it happen without incident.

Notify the Police That You Are Moving Overnight

You would be surprised to learn how many police officers spot a moving truck and things moving out of a house at night and get the wrong idea. If you want to avoid delays via the local police, give them a heads up before it gets dark. On the day of your nighttime move, stop by the police station to let them know where you live and that you will be loading a truck at night to move to a new place. Ask them to notify the overnight beat cops so that you can continue packing and loading uninterrupted. Otherwise, you can call them in the evening before you get started with your move and let them know then too. Just be sure to use the non-emergency number.

Have a Large Group of Friends and Family Help

It is less conspicuous and suspicious to move at night when you have a large group of friends and/or family helping. Nobody questions five, six, seven, or eight people loading a moving truck at night, but two or three people does look out of place. Additionally, the larger your group of helpers, the faster you can move and be finished with the task.

Turn on Every Light You Can and Put Lights Inside the Truck

To keep everyone safe during your nighttime move, park the truck under the nearest street lamp. Turn on all the lights within your home or apartment. Place bright halogen lamps inside the truck so that everyone can see where to place boxes and furniture. If it helps, turn the lights on inside and out of the truck's cab. Having as much light on to help you move will prevent injuries caused by tripping, falling, and dropping items.

Utilize Dollies to Move All Heavy Items

Moving in the dark is probably not your first choice, but if you work third shift and cannot take time off, you have to move on your nights off. You may also have to move at night if you have received last minute relocation or transfer orders. Whatever the reason, use dollies to move all of your really heavy stuff so that little slips and bumps in the night do not send you to the hospital.
