Things Your Movers Wish You Knew
By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
Below are things which your moving company would really like for you to know.
1) Alert the Movers of Awkward Pieces
This tip really needs to be covered when you're getting your moving quote, and it’s extremely significant, thus it is worth mentioning. When you have got bulky pieces, like a grand piano, fridge, or hot tub, that must be moved, make sure and communicate that to the moving company in Dallas. Some things make need extra planning, equipment or men to move, so it is never a good plan to “surprise” the professional mover in Dallas with unplanned pieces.
2) Prepare for the Movers Arrival
Are you living within a gated neighborhood or an apartment complex with an elevator? Can the moving truck freely get access to your property? Take a few minutes in advance of moving day to consider the specifics of the spot that the moving van is going to park and what the route both to and from the truck resembles. In the event that you have to get a parking or elevator permit from your building manager, make sure and accomplish that far ahead of time.
3) Conclude Packing Before Moving Day
Should you decide to perform your own packing, make sure that it will be done prior to moving day. That will mean that all the cartons are taped up and properly labeled. To make activities go even faster, neatly stack all your filled boxes in a central location in your residence, for instance the garage or perhaps the family room so that the moving company crew can easily load them directly onto the moving van. Expert tip: Never use masking tape for your boxes. Use packaging tape instead.
4) Do not Put Heavy Items in Big Cartons
There are recommendations for what to place in which size boxes for a reason. Objects that are quite heavy, including books, need to go in smaller cartons. Items which happen to be reasonably light, like pillows and bedding, should go in larger boxes.
5) Plan to be Present on Moving Day
You or someone that you know and trust have to be on hand for the entire moving day should your movers have questions on what they should and shouldn’t be moving. Plus, a trustworthy grownup needs to be present to sign all the mover’s papers.
6) Let the Movers Work
Perhaps you believe that you are helping as you lend a hand to move the fridge, but it’s generally preferable to stay out of the way. You may direct the movers to the proper rooms and also respond to questions, but outside of that, let the professional movers in Dallas carry out the work so that things go as efficiently as it possibly can.
