A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Colorado Springs

Family Moving to a New HomeFor a person thinking about a long-distance move, the logistics of the move itself are just overwhelming—sorting and boxing up your belongings, determining who is doing your packing, confirming moving trucks, selling your old house and buying a new house--these are just a few of the tasks that induce sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do drop off to sleep, you are having bad dreams about a crude moving crew loading your entire life into a ramshackle moving truck with questionable mud flaps-so being awake is actually superior to that scenario.

Take a deep breath. When you choose the right moving company, you don't need to worry about the particulars --you will have a move coordinator to assist you throughout your move to Colorado Springs, one step at a time, and act as your point person throughout--from figuring up how much packing material you will need to making sure the washing machine is set up at your new home. With a single point of contact, you will never worry about your move.

Here are a few items your move coordinator will handle, beginning with helping the account manager with your quote.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Whether you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to accomplish it, you'll need supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of ten years in the moving industry--will come to your residence, and walk through with you to figure out not only the quantity of trucks you will require, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you will want 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 heavy. Once you've gone through the entire property—living area, basement, attics, garage—you will get an idea of the time and materials necessary to get you moving. If you've got stuff in a storage locker somewhere, make sure and mention that, too--the last thing you want is to forget to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage unit with a boat in it.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced moving crews. The teams that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to handle the project--from a pool table to a washing machine, 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 grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Really long-distance moves usually include moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only aid with the details of transporting your wheeled things, but can direct you on registering and tagging them if you're going to a new state or country.

Storage in Colorado Springs

Sometimes your new residence is under construction, or you're downsizing and not sure what you'll want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you wait to finish moving in. Your coordinator is knowledgeable on how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and coordinated 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 notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
