When my boss told me that I would be moving a lot for work, I didn't really understand what he meant. I thought he would want me to move once every few years, but he really meant that he wanted me to relocate about once every six months or so for the entire rest of the time I worked for the company. Af first I was pretty upset about it, but after a few relocations, I realized that it was actually a great opportunity to see new places and meet new people. I made this blog to create a better moving experience for everyone out there.
When you hire residential movers to help you get on your way to moving into your new home, you save yourself the hassle of having to pack up and move your many belongings. A moving company sends skilled movers to your home who then wrap and protect your furniture, appliances, and other items and place them in large vehicles for transport. They can even be hired to place your things in your new home so you don't have to unpack them yourself. To make the big day more organized for everyone, here are things you can do.
Plan out your strategy prior to the move
Meet with a moving manager prior to your move. This is a person provided by the residential moving company who helps you organize your move so all of your belongings are relocated more easily. They help you come up with a game plan for your move, such as dates you want certain rooms (kitchen, living room, etc) moved into your new home, and they draw up a checklist for you and their movers to follow. This helps ensure that even without you being present all your items get moved when they are supposed to and get placed right where they should be in your new location.
Be present on moving day
You want to be available on moving day so if there are any concerns or questions that arise when your items are being packed, you can be present to make decisions. Keep kids and pets at bay but be around to guide movers on items that may have not been discussed with your moving manager, such as what to do with yard equipment or how you would like an antique painting moved. On arrival day at your new address, you want to be present as well so in case you change your mind about where you want furniture placed or if you have concerns about a fragile item being moved, you can be ready to offer suggestions and get the results you want.
Know what cannot be moved
Every moving company has stipulations about what they simply cannot or will not move, such as firearms or antiques. Get this list in advance from your moving manager and make arrangements to have these items relocated on your own. This removes confusion on moving day and helps prevent unexpected surprises. Movers can assist you in how you can pack and store these items for personal transport.
