Planning a Last-Minute Move to Colorado Springs Within the Late Summer Rush

Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

When planning a move, you realize that you require a specific amount of time to arrange for packing, scheduling time with the moving company in Colorado Springs, and your trip using the moving van. Most of us have many months of advance warning to plan their move and solidly book the moving services they want. But occasionally, a move occurs upon us unexpectedly. Perhaps you are transferred to a brand new job and a whole new town with your company, maybe there's a family emergency and you have to cross the state quickly. And regrettably, these sudden moving plans occasionally happen smack-dab during the summer time moving season rush when moving companies are near their busiest levels and most booked.

The good thing is that you're not caught having to DIY the whole move using a rented moving van. You could still obtain the professional moving company services you would usually rely on with the proper approaches along with a little bit of adaptability. Presently, we are here to give a couple of helpful suggestions on carrying out a last-minute move to Colorado Springs even if it occurs over the end of summer time rush.

Do the Majority of Your Packing DIY

What really matters for many people is having the boxes packed onto the moving van, the hefty pieces of furniture safely and securely moved, and the large truck managed by knowledgeable professional movers. However what about packing? Packing can be very cumbersome, so if you're considering a DIY pack job, here are some things to take into account.

You're more than efficient at folding your closet into boxes and also hanging bags. With just a few online tutorials, you'll be able to figure out how to make full use of packing paper and dish packing grids to make certain your dishes, cookware, and memorabilia are securely packed. No doubt, you'll be able to pack up lots of the not-so-delicate things inside your closets and you could even be in a position to recruit pals, neighbors, or even colleagues to accomplish it faster if you're prepared to pay them in pizza.

Even if you choose to not have a professional moving company in Colorado Springs assist you to pack, they could help you equip yourself to pack expertly while using boxes, packing supplies, furniture pads, and dish grids you need to do it properly. And, if you've found yourself with a portion of the packing completed and realize that you're in over your head, do not be afraid to pick up your phone and get in touch with your local moving company to ask for help.

Be Accessible to Move on Weekdays

The weekend is the one top demand time for moving services regardless of the time of the year it is. It might really not be possible to find a summer time weekend that is not reserved. But weekdays differ. Mainly because significantly fewer people are available to oversee the moving process on weekdays, movers often times have these days, or maybe available hours in the course of weekdays, open and readily available for last-minute customers who failed to schedule a saturday or sunday several months in advance.

For many people who must move abruptly, weekdays are less of a problem as your regular schedule and plans have already been flipped on their head. If your job is moving you, you may be in a position to request a couple of added compensated days off to manage the unexpected move. If you're changing employers, you could have the time at home on weekdays to deal with this scheduling quirk.

And if you cannot be available on weekdays, you may well be able to get in touch with a friend or neighbor who's available who could oversee the move on your behalf as you are at work.

Consult with Your Movers and Seek out Suggestions

Lastly, do not be shy to question your moving company for added tips. Professional movers in Colorado Springs understand a lot better than other people how it is like to handle a hurried moving job and will be very happy to offer a few tips. Talk to your movers regarding your mutual schedules to determine the right days where both you and they are accessible and contemplate any helpful hints they offer regarding how to make the timetable work.

Your movers might even have beneficial advice and expert suggestions from years of experience concerning how to pack up speedier, how to keep your precious belongings secure while hurrying, and what to do concerning un-movable items like houseplants, domestic pets, or even your chemistry set collection.


Moving in the eleventh hour, even in the course of the summer moving rush, doesn't need to indicate carrying it out all yourself. Should you be prepared to work with your moving company in Colorado Springs, we are able to help you find the right dates, times, and techniques to get all the things done promptly to the top level of quality even if there's no time to make meticulous moving plans.

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.
