For a person considering a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just mind-boggling—sorting and boxing up all your possessions, determining who's doing your packing, planning trucks, selling your old house and securing a new home--these are just some of the tasks that produce sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your front yard. And once you do drop off to sleep, you are having nightmares about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a ramshackle truck with dubious mud flaps-so staying awake is actually preferred to that scenario.
Take a deep breath. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to worry about the particulars --you will have a move coordinator to assist you every moment of your move to Dallas, one step at a time, and act as your point person throughout--from deciding how much bubble wrap you'll need to making sure the swing set is set up at your new house. With a move coordinator on your side, you'll never fret about your move.
Here are a few items your move coordinator will help you with, beginning with supporting the account manager with your moving estimate.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
Regardless if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to accomplish it, you'll need supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of ten years in the moving industry--will come to your home, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks you'll need, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll need for each room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you pointers on how to fill the boxes so they're not too bulky. Once you have gone through the entire residence—living area, basement, attics, garage—you will have an idea of the time and materials necessary to get you moving. If you've got off-site storage, make sure and make that known, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is packed full.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced movers. The teams that arrive at your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the job--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can rest assured that the job will be done correctly. If you change your mind about anything (donating the refrigerator or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Really long-distance moves usually involve moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only help with the specifics of relocating your wheeled things, but can advise you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.
Storage in Dallas
Sometimes your new home is still being built, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not completely done when you move. Your move coordinator sets up for short-term storage while you are waiting to finish moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you will need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped according to destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings going into storage. When you are ready to have those things delivered, just alert your move coordinator and the trucks and movers are on their way.
