8. Treat the workers well
You can hire a great company, but it's the workers who will move you. Buy them food, drinks, and tip heavily. Our last move, we went way beyond the estimated time. At 5 or 6 we discussed it withe the foreman. We negotiated with the workers to pay them off the contract. We then went to each worker and said what we had negotiated. We made sure to pay each worker their share. These men were carrying stuff up the stairs at 3 in the morning. They didn't seem unhappy because we paid them well. It's a hard job.
