We may be excited about moving, but nobody really looks forward to having to pack and haul a lot of heavy stuff. Many people even put off unpacking for days or even weeks once they are in their new homes! Still, moving is a part of life for almost everybody, so focus on making it easier. Hiring the best professional movers is the single most important step to doing just that. Next is helping that mover help you by doing the things it takes to be the best customer you can be. These three simple pre-moving steps will show you the way.
- Communicate Thoroughly with Your Moving CompanyTucson moving customers will be starting off on the right foot if they make sure they properly explain the moving task to the moving company in advance. Choosing the best moving company can only happen if they are able to explain how their services will suit your needs, and they can only do that if you have adequately laid out the mission before them. The amount of boxes and furniture being moved, any special handling instructions that must be followed, distance of the moving vehicle to the residence, and the presence of stairs or elevators are all the kinds of things that need to be known immediately when factoring in estimates of cost and time.For a particularly unique move, you may want to have the Tucson moving company come out and visit the site to get a good handle on what it is you need. If you have a special storage shed or a particularly complicated path from your door to the moving truck, it may help for them to see these things in person.
- Get Your Tucson Moving Company to Answer All of Your Questions Before the MoveIf you are going to be using a long distance moving company, you will want all the logistical questions answered in full. If you do not have a dedicated truck for hauling your items, you will need to know if the Tucson long distance mover is using a tracking system sophisticated enough to not lose your stuff.Your local mover won’t need to mix customer’s shipments, but the long distance movers will do so in order to manage costs. You should ask about this and if purchasing your own dedicated moving truck service is a possibility. In the end, you may not opt to spend the extra money, but it is important to know what your options are and what risks you are agreeing to. More stops and more mixed loads mean an increase in the possibility for problems and long waiting times for delivery.
- Stand Out from the Crowd and Move During the Off-SeasonSince most leases end at the beginning or end of the month, it makes sense that most of Tucson’s moving companies are at their busiest around those same times. If you can schedule your move for the middle of the month, you will have your pick of the best Tucson movers available even on short notice.You may find that the summer is the most popular time to move since many families are timing their transitions to when kids are out of school. This means it may be best for you to move in the winter. Another benefit to an offseason move is that Tucson moving companies will really appreciate not doing all their work under the summer sun!
