For someone contemplating a long-distance move, the logistics of the move itself are just mind-boggling—sorting and boxing up everything you own, determining who is doing your packing, confirming trucks, selling your old house and buying a new home--these are just a few of the things that cause sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do drift off to sleep, you are having nightmares about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a ramshackle moving truck with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is actually preferable to that scenario.
Take a deep breath. If you select the right moving company, you don't have to worry about the details --you'll have a move coordinator to help you throughout your move to Wichita Falls, one step at a time, and act as your move manager throughout--from figuring up how much packing material you'll need to ensuring the pool table is set up at your new house. With a move coordinator on your side, you will never worry about your move.
Here are some items your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with supporting the account manager with your estimate.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
Whether you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to accomplish it, you will want to get supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of 10 years in the moving industry--will arrive at your home, 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'll require for every room. If you elect to pack yourself, they'll provide you suggestions on how to pack the boxes so they are not too bulky. Once you've gone through the entire residence—house, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials needed to get you on your way. If you've got off-site storage, make sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to not remember to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is filled to the brim.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only retains top-quality, experienced moving crews. The teams that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be disassembled and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the job--from a grandfather clock to a backyard grill, you can rest assured that the task will be done right. If you change your mind about something (donating the refrigerator or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Interstate moves usually mean moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the details of relocating your wheeled things, but can direct you on registering and tagging them if you're going to a new state or country.
Storage in Wichita Falls
Sometimes your new residence is still being built, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way done when you move. Your move coordinator manages for short-term storage while you wait to complete moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and organized according to destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings being put into storage. When you are ready to have those belongings delivered, just call your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
