A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Dallas

Family Moving to a New HomeFor a person contemplating a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just astounding—going through and boxing up everything you own, deciding who is doing your packing, scheduling trucks, working with a realtor to sell your house and buying a new house--these are just a couple of the tasks that induce sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your front yard. And once you do drop off in slumber, you're having nightmares about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a dilapidated moving van with debatable mud flaps-so being awake is probably superior to that scenario.

Calm down. If you select the right moving company, you do not need to fret about the logistics --you'll have a move coordinator to guide you throughout your move to Dallas, step by step, and be your point person throughout--from calculating how much packing material you will need to ensuring the washing machine is set up at your new residence. With a single point of contact, you will never worry about your move.

Here are some of the tasks your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with assisting the account manager with your estimate.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Regardless if you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to accomplish it, you'll want to get supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will come to your residence, and walk through with you to determine not only how many trucks you will require, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll need for every room. If you elect to pack yourself, they'll provide you tips on how to fill the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you've gone through the entire property—living area, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials necessary to get you moving. If you have off-site storage, be sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to forget to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is packed full.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only employs top-quality, experienced helpers. The guys that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the project--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done right. If you change your mind about what you want to move (donating the swing set or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Interstate moves usually mean moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the specifics of relocating your wheeled things, but can direct you on registering and tagging them if you're going to a new state or country.

Storage in Dallas

Sometimes your new residence is not quite ready, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator sets up for short-term storage while you are waiting to complete moving in. Your coordinator is knowledgeable on how to pack for storage, based on the timeframe for which you will need it. Your boxes are packed and organized according to destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other items going into storage. When you are ready to have those things delivered, just notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers are on their way.
