What Services Do Moving Companies Provide?
When most people think of moving companies, they picture big vans being loaded with heavy furniture – but there’s a lot more to moving than that. A reputable moving company will provide you with a range of moving services to make your relocation as smooth as possible, from wrapping that first delicate vase to setting down the last piece of heavy furniture in your new home.
A good moving company will help you to prepare for your move long before moving day. A critical part of this process is the visual survey that the moving company will complete. The movers will inspect your home room by room to assess how much furniture needs to be moved, how much packing material is needed, and whether special arrangements must be made for large or particularly sensitive items (such as pianos).
This is a good opportunity for you to ask questions about the moving process and make inquiries about the full range of moving services that the company offers so you can plan your move to best suit your needs.
Moving Day Checklists
Moving checklists help to develop a clear, step-by-step plan for moving day and ensure that everyone is on the same page about what items need to be packed and loaded first. From leaving enough time for defrosting your refrigerator to keeping the most essential items for last, a checklist will help you to prepare for your move in a sensible order and keep hassle to a minimum.
A professional moving company will help you to create a moving-day checklist and provide you with guidance to prepare your home for the move. You should also make your own checklists for tackling the administrative burdens which moving home inevitably involves.
Disassembling and Re-assembling Furniture
Not looking forward to the insurmountable challenge of dissembling, packing, and re-assembling that dreaded flat-pack desk? One of the biggest advantages of hiring a moving services company is that you won’t have to tackle disassembling your furniture. Movers have valuable expertise in disassembling and reassembling furniture, saving you hours of time (and your sanity).
Wrapping and Packing
The wrapping and packing of your home contents are just as important as the physical move itself. Moving companies will supply all the wrapping paper, bubble wrap, boxes, tape, and furniture blankets necessary to ensure that your belongings are protected during the move.
Skilled movers will have years of experience in packing objects of every shape, size, and fragility imaginable. Best of all, they will treat your possessions with the utmost care. For this reason, movers are also very efficient packers and will be able to pack up your home in a much shorter time span than you would be able to.
They’ll also be there to unpack everything on the other side and ensure the sustainable disposal of all the packing materials used in the moving process. This way, you aren’t left with a mess of moving materials once the move is complete.
Loading, Transporting, and Unloading
Nobody wants to start off life in their new home with a painful back injury. Hiring a moving services company allows you to leave the heavy lifting to the experts and ensures that your furniture will be properly handled during the moving process.
Obtaining measurements of your home’s rooms and doorways and discussing a floor plan with your movers will also make setting up your furniture much easier. As for transportation, with your furniture securely packed in a moving van and driven for you, you’ll only need to focus on getting yourself and your family to your new home.
Secure Storage of Your Belongings
Your move may present unexpected hurdles – your move-in date might be delayed, or your furniture might not fit in your new home as intended. In these situations, it’s very useful to be able to store your furniture with your moving company until you are ready to move in or have made alternative arrangements.
