Three Important Things Professional Movers Want You to Know
No one understands more than professional movers how stressful your move can be — and while they can certainly help your reduce your stress levels, that doesn’t mean they can make all your stress disappear. In order to make your move day as stress-free as possible, most high-quality movers would advise you to do the following:
- Do thorough research: Reliable, dependable and highly rated movers welcome scrutiny. Remember, every company will put on their best when conducting an estimate, but when it comes to finding the company that will make you feel most comfortable, you will need to dig a little deeper than judging by first impressions. Consider visiting the company’s office for an in-person visit or conduct follow up interviews and ask as many questions as you feel necessary. Seeing things for yourself and getting comfortable with the company you are dealing with will go a long way in helping you find the right mover for the job.
- Be prepared: Before you even begin packing, figure our what you need to do to make the move go as smoothly as possible. For example, if parking is difficult in your area, make sure you can secure a spot for the truck. If you live in an apartment/condo complex, be aware of all the rules involved with moving. Remember that a quality professional mover is also an expert in logistics, so don’t be afraid to call and ask for some advice — professional movers care about their customers, and will be glad to offer tips and advice.
- Stay out of the way: Because of the physical demands of moving, it’s only natural for homeowners to feel the need to help a mover get the job done. Don’t do it — good moving companies utilize highly trained staff that knows exactly what to do, and are completely up to the task. The best thing you can do is try to relax, stay out of the way and be available for any questions your mover may have.
We’ve only highlighted three items professional movers would want you to know, but there are many more. The best thing you can do is talk to your mover about them. Always remember, a good mover will want you to have the best experience possible.
