Things you should no before your move.

moving tipsTip’s you won’t want to do on your move day.
1. Of course, you have lots of opinions and thoughts on the moving process, but you hired full service movers for a reason. They are trained professionals who’ve moved many couches, boxes, and fragile things, so if you step aside and let them do their work it will likely go more quickly. You’ll feel less stressed, and they won’t feel micromanaged
2. It makes everything easier on the movers if they arrive at a house that is completely ready to be put on the truck. They can assess the load, make a plan for how they’re going to pack it in the truck and get started. If they need to wait for you to finish packing it’s costing their time which translates into costing you more money.
3. Your movers don’t want to be worried about keeping track of your valuables on moving day when they’ve already got so many other things to consider, and they’d like to steer clear of the possibility of false accusations if anything goes missing. Moving your entire house is an all-consuming process and things are likely to get misplaced-they don’t want any fingers pointed at them.
4. If your movers are tasked with unloading all of your belongings and boxes to their intended rooms, it’s important to label each box well and clearly. That will remove you from the role of traffic director, and help them to be more efficient while unloading. If you’re paying them by the hour, this is especially important.
5. They wish they were psychic, but they’re not. They need to know clearly and ahead of time if a certain box has a necessary “this side up”, or if something needs to be handled with utmost care because the chair leg is broken.
6. Your movers arrive with the assumption that you’ve researched these things, and finding out that their moving truck needs to be relocated or, worse, has been ticketed, is one sure way to put a damper on moving day.
7. It might seem like a good idea to put all of your books in one place, but that box becomes nearly impossible for the movers to lift and stands a good chance of having a blowout during the moving process. Then your movers are stuck trying to repack your belongings on the go, and that takes time and money. If you find yourself needing some extra boxes to make up the difference, here are our recommendations for finding free moving boxes around town.
