Here are some game-changing moving tips that often get overlooked but are very important to execute a successful move.

 

Moving to a new home should ideally be a pleasant experience, free of the unnecessary stressors that often accompany relocation. Achieving this smooth transition depends on mutual cooperation and shared understanding between home owners and movers.  While your chosen moving company tries to accomplish a seamless move, there are additional factors that customers can proactively address to enhance the overall experience.

No Surprises on Moving Day, Please.

One thing moving companies do not like is the surprise that customers do not mention while booking a move, and this causes a headache for both parties. To avoid this from happening, make sure you share as much detail as possible about your upcoming move. If you have heavy, fragile, and bulky items like a piano, refrigerator, or hot tub, inform your moving company ahead of time. That is because those kinds of items require special equipment and preparation. That way, movers come fully equipped and prepared for any challenges they might face during the moving process.

Prepare for the movers’ arrival.

If you happen to be moving into or out of a gated community or an apartment complex, it is important to make sure that the moving truck can access your home without any issues and that there is an available parking space. Plan where the truck will park and the route to and from your home.

  • Check Parking Availability: If you don’t have a driveway, make sure there’s parking available for the moving truck. Tell your movers early if parking is tight; they might need a shuttle or make multiple trips with smaller vans.
  • Truck Size: Make sure the moving truck fits in your parking spot, and watch out for wires and trees.
  • Get Permits: Ask your moving company about permits. Some places won’t give them directly to movers, so you might have to check and apply for permits yourself. Get them at least three days before moving day.
  • Check with building management and reserve an elevator for your moving day

Be sure to finish packing before moving day

If you told your movers that you would be doing the packing yourself, it is very important that you finish your packing well before the moving day arrives. Tape all boxes securely and label them correctly. To make the process go faster, organize your packed boxes in a central location, such as the garage or family room, making it easy for the movers to load them onto the truck.

Mind the Weight and Box Size.

Heavy items like books should go in small boxes, while lighter items like pillows and sheets can be packed in larger boxes. Need more tips and tricks? Dive into our comprehensive packing guide over at www.zetamoving.com

Be present on the moving day and let your professional movers do their job

Make sure either you or a trusted representative is present throughout the moving day to promptly address any queries the movers might have. While it might seem helpful to assist in moving heavy items, it’s often best to let the professionals handle it. Instead, guide the movers to the appropriate rooms and be available to provide clarification or answer any questions they may have. By handling these details upfront, you’ll save time and potential extra costs on moving day.
