For anyone considering a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just staggering—sorting through and packing up your belongings, deciding who's doing your packing, scheduling moving vans, selling your old house and finding a new one--these are just a few of the items that induce sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your yard. And once you do fall off in slumber, you're having scary dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety truck with questionable mud flaps-so staying awake is actually superior to that scenario.
Calm down. If you select the right moving company, you do not have to fret about the particulars --you'll have a move coordinator to help you every moment of your move to Little Rock, one step at a time, and act as your point person throughout--from calculating how many boxes you will need to making sure the washing machine is set up at your new residence. With a move coordinator on your side, you'll never fret about your move.
Here are some of the items your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with helping the account manager with your quote.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
No matter if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to accomplish it, you'll require supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of 10 years in the moving industry--will visit your house, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks you will require, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll want for every room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you tips on how to fill the boxes so they're not too bulky. Once you have gone through the entire property—main floor, basement, attics, garage—you'll have an idea of the time and materials required to get you on your way. If you've got stuff in a storage locker somewhere, make sure and make that known, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is filled to the brim.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced helpers. The teams that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the job--from a pool table to a backyard grill, you can rest assured that the job will be done correctly. 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's handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Interstate moves usually mean moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the technicalities of relocating your wheeled things, but can direct you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.
Storage in Little Rock
Sometimes your new house is under construction, or you are downsizing and not sure what you will want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not completely done when you move. Your move coordinator sets up for short-term storage while you are waiting to complete moving in. Your coordinator knows 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're ready to have those things delivered, just alert your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
