Moving Soon? Here's What Your Mover Wants You to Know

When you are moving and obtain professional movers in Little Rock to help, there are a couple tasks which you can do and other tasks that you probably shouldn’t do to help ensure a smooth moving process. A simple move starts when all parties work collectively which suggests that you need to know if you should lend a hand and when you should move out of the way.

Below are things that your local moving company in Little Rock would like for you to understand.

1) Nobody enjoys Surprises on Moving Day

This advice should be talked about when you are getting your moving quote, and it is uber critical, hence it’s worth mentioning. In the event you own bulky items, like a piano, refrigerator, or even hot tub, that need to be moved, be sure and communicate that to your moving company in Little Rock. Some bulky items may need additional preparations, equipment, or perhaps men to move, therefore it will not be a doable idea to “surprise” your local or long-distance professional mover in Little Rock with unexpected items on moving day.

2) Be Ready for the Movers Arrival

Do you live in a gated community or maybe an apartment complex with an elevator? Can the moving truck without issue get to your house? Take a few minutes ahead of moving day to go through the specifics of where the moving van will park and what the way to and from the truck will be. If you have to reserve a parking or elevator pass from your building manager, remember and do that well ahead of time.

3) Complete Packing Before Moving Day

When you will be doing your own packing, be sure that it’s done in advance of moving day. This means that every box is taped up and adequately labeled. To help things go even faster, efficiently stack your packed boxes in a central place in your house, such as the garage or the living room so that the local moving company crew will without issue load them onto the moving van.

Pro tip: Never use masking tape on your boxes. Use packing tape instead.

4) Don’t Pack Heavy Items in Large Boxes

There are suggestions for what items to place in which size boxes for a reason. Don’t ignore these tips. Things that weigh a lot, such as books, need to go in small boxes. Things that are fairly light, like towels and blankets, can be placed in large boxes.

5) Plan to be Present on Moving Day

You or someone that you know must be present for the whole moving day in case your movers have any questions about what they should and should not move. And, a responsible adult must be present to sign all the mover’s paperwork.

6) Let the Movers Work

You could believe that you are helping when you lend a hand to move the refrigerator, yet it’s usually best to stay out of the way. You may point the movers to the right rooms and answer questions, but other than that, allow the long-distance professional movers in Little Rock do the heavy lifting so that the move will go as flawlessly as possible.
