- Pack and label your belongings with care
- Identify and protect your most sentimental items
- Meet and direct your movers, unpack boxes, and put everything in its place
- Make your beds and set up your kitchen and bathroom

HOW DOES THE ON THE MOVE PROGRAM WORK?
When the consultant arrives at your home, they will be ready to discuss any stage of the move. This includes downsizing, packing, and then unpacking at The Merion. The consultant will assess your needs, room by room, and determine what moving supplies you need.
They will assist with as little or as much as you require of them, even helping you determine a moving timeline. Other services include ordering any other packing materials and recommending trustworthy moving companies. If you so wish, they’ll even help you start packing and labeling your belongings, organizing them with the utmost care.
In the days leading up to the move, your consultant can provide any move-related paperwork, close utility accounts, and handle any other details as they arise. They will also coordinate with your movers on moving day, making sure that any important documents are easily accessible for your first night at The Merion.
Once you arrive, they can help you unpack and set up your kitchen and bathroom. We want to make your first night, as well as every night, perfect at The Merion.
