Moving on your own can be extremely stressful. Rather than begging your friend to borrow their truck, contact local movers! They will be able to move your belongings with ease while you kick back and settle into your new space.
To make your moving day as easy as possible, there are many elements that need to be covered. Here are 7 common things you can do to make your movers the happiest guys around.
One of the most important things your mover needs to know before the big day is your timeline. Provide the moving company and the actual movers the proper information, including start date, travel time, and more. With this information, your mover will have a better understanding of your moving plan.
This may seem pretty obvious, but you will need to inform your movers the exact destination you are moving to. Not only will this help the mover get your belongings to your new home safely, it will also give you a better idea of how much the move will cost.
3. Renters Insurance
In some cases, if something is damaged during the move, it may be covered by your renters insurance. Before your moving day, check with your insurance provider to find out exactly what your policy covers. Relay this information to your movers so that all parties involved are completely aware of what will be covered and what will not.
4. Set Up Moving Insurance
Once you have determined what will be covered by your renters insurance, you can now determine what additional coverage you will need. Speak with your moving company to determine your options on moving insurance. Moving insurance will not only save your belongings, but it will also protect you from any liability issues of a mover is injured throughout your move.
5. Have Things Packed
Another thing that will make your movers the happiest around is if your belongings are packed up and ready for the exact moving date and time. If you are not a pro at packing on your own, there are many services that will pack your belongings for you. Packing and unpacking services can be a great option for families or busy professionals that may not be able to unpack in their own.
6. Truck Accommodations
What many of our customers forget to consider is how the truck will be accommodated in the new area. Will the truck fit in the complex? Are there parking obstructions? These are questions that you should have answered before you move. This will save you time and the cost of potential damages in the moving process.
7. Components of New Home
Most customers get to see the layout of their new home before moving in. Let your mover know if there are any stairs, sharp turns, or other obstructions that will make it hard for them to get belongings in and out. With this information, they will be able to bring along the proper tools, equipment, or extra moving power along in the move.
