Read on for things that your moving company in Colorado Springs would like for you to be aware of.
1) Nobody enjoys Surprises on Moving Day
This tidbit ought to be talked about when you are receiving your moving quote, and it happens to be very vital, hence it’s worth saying again. In the event you own difficult items, like a piano, refrigerator, or perhaps hot tub, which will need to be moved, always communicate that to your moving company in Colorado Springs. Some items may require additional preparations, equipment, or perhaps men to move, hence it will not be a doable idea to “surprise” your professional mover in Colorado Springs with unexpected items on moving day.
2) Be Organized for the Movers Arrival
Do you live in a gated community or an apartment complex that has an elevator? Can the moving van without issue get to your house? Take a moment ahead of moving day to go through the particulars of where the moving truck is going to park and what the route to and from the moving truck is like. If you need to get a parking or elevator pass from the building manager, be sure and handle it far ahead of time.
3) Complete Packing Prior to Moving Day
In the event you completing your own packing, be sure that it’s completed in advance of moving day. That means that every box is taped up and correctly labeled. To help things go even quicker, tidily stack the packed boxes in a central area in your house, like the garage or the family room so that the moving company crew will simply load them into the moving van. Pro tip: Don’t use masking tape on your boxes. Use packing tape instead.
4) Never Put Heavy Items in Large Boxes
There are guidelines for what items to pack in which size boxes for a reason. Pay attention to these tips. Things that are heavy, such as books, need to be put in in small boxes. Things which are relatively light, like pillows and sheets, can be put in large boxes.
5) Plan to be Available on Moving Day
You or someone that you can trust needs to be present for the full moving day in the event your movers have any questions about which things they should and should not be moving. And, a responsible adult should be there to sign all the mover’s paperwork.
6) Let the Movers Work
You might think that you are being helpful when you lend a hand to move the fridge, but it’s usually a better idea to stay out of the way. You should direct the movers to the right rooms and answer questions, but beyond that, allow the professional movers in Colorado Springs do the heavy lifting so that everything will proceed as smoothly as possible.
