Hiring home movers is one of the best decisions you have ever made. With a little extra help and a means of transporting all of your belongings, the process should go pretty smoothly. In order to make sure that you don’t run into any problems along the way be sure that you are organized and have some type of plan in place.
When home movers walk into your living area they should be able to get to the items they need to move. If they are packing up all of your personal items as well, everything should be out to pack. Go through your entire space and make sure that the professionals will be able to get to everything. If you just have random items in the floor and an area littered with things you aren’t sure about it will slow down the entire pace of the move. Just do a quick pick up.
What is the most important thing to be moved? Are some items going to storage and other going to a new location? It is important to know the answers to these questions before the help is on your doorstep. Make a list of the things that should be packed first or last. Make a list of what things go where. If you move involves two separate locations you need to be clear on what goes where. While you may not want to label every item in your home, consider grouping things together that will go to one place. For example: all furniture goes to storage but all clothing goes to the new apartment. This makes it easier for everyone to keep working.
There are some things in every person’s area that cannot be replaced. These may be valuables or sentimental items that are very important. When bringing in home movers know that they are very careful with each and every item they handle. They take every precaution and the safety of your items is a real priority. However sometimes things just happen. If you have some of these irreplaceable items, consider packing them yourself or finding special packaging materials.
Other items in your home are fragile not because they are irreplaceable but because they need some extra attention when being packed. When the home movers come in for an estimate or even on the first day of work, make it a point to direct them to these items. It will give them a heads up on how many fragile items there are. They will also be able to plan out how they want to handle each one.
The more work that you can complete in advance, the better off your move will be. If your home movers don’t offer boxing materials or labels, be sure to purchases these on your own and have them waiting on the day of the move. While this is a large undertaking, things can run smoothly with a little advanced planning.
