5 Expert Solutions for some basic Moving Problems are:
Problem 1:- You waited too long to book a moving company.
If you are waiting until last minute to hire the help of a moving company, you may find that your top choices of moving company are already booked up. This will lead you to hire those moving companies with fewer reputations.
It is very crucial to finalizing your moving date as soon as you decide to move so you can schedule a reliable moving company. To find a good moving company, check their reviews online. A few bad reviews are normal and OK as long as the huge majority of reviews are positive.
Problem 2:- You’re rushing to pack.
The most common problems with moving people are that they leave the packing to the last minute. Think: clothes still folded in closet, art still hanging on the walls, and miscellaneous items covering your home.
As soon as you know you’re moving, start packing. Arrange packing supplies like boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and tape. Then start packing with the stuff you use less frequently or don’t need on a daily basis. Pack all items together and clearly label each box. If you want help or feel overwhelmed by packing, just call the movers and let them know in advance. They will ensure there are no last minute surprises.
Problem 3:- Your stuff requires special packaging.
People often forget that some of their stuff requires special care. Things like flat-screen TVs, mirrors, arts, dishes, lamps, chandeliers, and certain pieces of furniture require extra time and attention. Many of these items need to be disassembled prior to being moved. Extreme care should be taken to prevent damages.
As soon as possible, start gathering the necessary supplies for packing your fragile items. ‘Remember how things entered the apartment because that’s how they will need to leave.’ A few weeks prior to your move, give your movers a detailed inventory of all your belongings that require special handling. That way they can allow space for these items in the moving truck and schedule enough time to help you pack and transport them.
Problem 4:- Your new moving building has time restrictions on service entrance or elevator access.
Many building, especially in big cities in Florida, New York, have limited access to service entrances or elevators. It happens a lot where a customer will ask us to be at their pick-up building at 8 a.m because they want to get an early start, but some elevator buildings in cities will not allow movers into the building until 9 a.m.
The best way to avoid a time conflict is to speak with the building’s management about their policies and restrictions ahead of time, then plan your moving by scheduling it accordingly.
Problem 5:- You didn’t pack your essentials separately.
After a long day of moving, the last thing you want to do is rummage through boxes marked ‘bathroom’ just to find the toilet paper. Or spend 20 minutes searching every box for your iPhone charger. Or wear the same clothes for two days because your extra t-shirts are piled beneath boxes of shoes and winter coats.
Tip: Packing a separate box with your most essential items is imperative.
Pack a box with jewelry, valuables, important documents, clothes for the next day, and toiletries. Also pack other accessories like chargers, laptops, earplugs, reading glasses, eye masks, medication.
