A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Wichita Falls

Family Moving to a New HomeFor a person considering a long-distance move, the logistics of the move itself are just astounding—sorting through and packing up everything you own, figuring out who is doing your packing, scheduling moving trucks, selling your old house and buying a new house--these are just some of the items that lead to sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your front yard. And once you do drift off in slumber, you are having bad dreams about a sketchy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety moving truck with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is actually preferable to that scenario.

Relax. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to stress about the particulars --you will have a move coordinator to assist you through your move to Wichita Falls, one step at a time, and act as your point person throughout--from figuring up how much packing material you'll need to making sure the washing machine is set up at your new home. With a move coordinator in your corner, you'll never fret about your move.

Here are some of the things your move coordinator will handle, starting with helping the account manager with your quote.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

No matter if you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to do it, you will 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 arrive at your house, and walk through with you to calculate not only the quantity of trucks you'll need, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you will need for every room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you suggestions on how to pack the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you have gone through the entire property—main floor, basement, attics, garage—you will have an idea of the time and materials required to get you moving. If you've got belongings in a mini-storage, make sure and make that known, too--the last thing you want is to forget to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is packed full.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only retains top-quality, experienced movers. The guys that arrive at your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be taken apart and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the project--from a grand piano to a backyard grill, you can rest assured that the job will be done right. If you change your mind about anything (donating the pool table or deciding to take the big sofa after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Nationwide moves usually include moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only help with the details of transporting your wheeled things, but can advise 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 downsizing and not sure what you'll want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not all the way done when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you are waiting to complete moving in. Your coordinator is knowledgeable on how to pack for storage, based on your timeframe for when you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and furniture being put into storage. When you're ready to have those belongings delivered, just alert your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
