Ask about our "last minute move"
In the moving industry, there
are basically two types of moves. The first type of move is called our
"White Glove Move". These customers want us to come to their
homes or offices and pack, disassemble, move, and then reassemble all
items. We do provide this service and we do it well. The second, and most
popular, type of move is for those customers trying to be as cost effective
as possible, not only with money but also with time, and they don't want
to break their backs in the process. We have come up with a few simple
tips for your move.
Pictures, Plants, and Lamps
Believe it or not, it takes
less time to move a large item such as a dresser or couch than it does
to move these smaller items. They are not usually packed and take a lot
of time to secure in the truck. However, these are not that difficult
to put in your car and take yourself. This will help save you a lot of
Assembly and Disassemble
Take it apart, anything you
can disassemble or break down will save you time. Remember to mark these
pieces and secure all loose screws, nuts, bolts, etc.
It is extremely important to pack as much as possible in boxes. The heavier
the item is, the smaller the box you need. All glasses need to be wrapped
in paper and all boxes closed and taped shut.
Dressers and File Cabinets, etc.
It is all right to leave clothes
in dressers and it will not hurt anything. However, anything breakable,
spillable, or small, such as jewelry, needs to be packed. Movers sometimes
have to tip furniture on its side and these things can fall out or get
broken. Full file cabinets should either be unpacked or lightened up.
If they are moved too heavy, frame damage can happen.
When your movers arrive at
your home or office, make sure entrances and all pathways are kept clear
of any debris.
Planing Your Move
Be realistic about your capabilities. When first calling for estimates,
don't undersell the size of your home or office or the furniture you have
to be moved. This will not save you money, but will give you a false estimate.
A good estimator not only evaluates the time your move will take, but
also the square footage you have, how good the access is at your pick-up
and drop-off, and exactly how many items you have as well as what you
intend to do in preparation for your move. The last piece of advice is
don't forget to let your movers do their job. They do it best. Remember,
you hired us to help you make this day as easy as possible. All of these
are only ideas to help you. Anything that needs to be done, we are more
than happy to do for you.
