Another vital area are the stairs, if any. Make sure these are easily accessible, without anything stacked at the top or the bottom. Again, pick up any loose rugs to prevent trips or slips. If you share a common stairwell, hall or landing with neighbors, request that they temporarily remove the items, both for the movers’ safety and to prevent damage.
