A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Little Rock

Family Moving to a New HomeFor someone thinking about a long-distance move, the specifics of the move itself are just astounding—going through and packing up everything you own, figuring out who is doing your packing, scheduling moving vans, selling your old house and finding a new house--these are just some of the tasks that induce sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your front yard. And once you do fall off in slumber, you're having bad dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety moving truck with debatable mud flaps-so staying awake is actually preferred to that scenario.

Relax. If you select the right moving company, you don't need to worry about the minutiae --you will have a move coordinator to help you throughout your move to Little Rock, one step at a time, and be your point person throughout--from figuring up how much bubble wrap you'll need to ensuring the pool table is set up at your new home. With a single point of contact, you will never panic about your move.

Here are a few tasks your move coordinator will help you with, beginning with helping the account manager with your moving estimate.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Regardless if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to handle it, you will want to get supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will visit your residence, and walk through with you to calculate not only the quantity of trucks you'll need, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you will require for every room. If you choose to pack yourself, they will provide you pointers on how to fill the boxes so they are not too bulky. Once you have gone through the entire residence—main floor, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials needed to get you moving. If you've got belongings in a mini-storage, make sure and make that known, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage unit that is packed full.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only employs top-quality, experienced movers. The crews that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be taken apart and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the project--from a pool table to a backyard grill, you can be confident that the task will be done right. If you change your mind about what you want to move (donating the swing set or deciding to take the big sofa after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Nationwide moves usually include moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only help with the technicalities of relocating your wheeled things, but can inform you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.

Storage in Little Rock

Sometimes your new residence is still being built, or you are downsizing and not sure what you'll want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not all the way done when you move. Your move coordinator manages for short-term storage while you wait to finish moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your timeframe for when you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and organized by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings being put into storage. When you're ready to have those belongings delivered, just call your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
