Storing Smarter Every Day

I have always been the kind of person who loves organization, which is why inheriting a bunch of items from a long lost aunt was really difficult for me. I realized that I couldn't part with things, but I knew that I had to store things in a smart way if I wanted to have enough room. I started going through things, nesting boxes, and working on a viable solution, and before I knew it, things were really coming together. I wanted to start a blog for people who need help storing things, so that you can get the advice you need.

What To Expect When Hiring Full-Service Movers

Want to have professionals take care of your entire move for you? Full-service moves can definitely be a great way to take the stress out of moving, but you'll want to have a good idea of what to expect before you hire them.

In-Person Estimate 

It is always a good idea to get an in-person estimate from any full service moving company that you hire. That is because the cost of the move is based on the volume of items that you have since the moves need to box and move everything. It is very possible for an estimate to be wrong if it is done over the phone or email, and the movers never actually see the inside of your home. 

Home Protection

The movers are going to make sure that your home is protected before they come inside to do any moving or packing. They will place plastic down on carpeting so that they do not stain the carpet fibers with dirty shoes and put cardboard down on hardwood floors so that they are not scratched. Moving pads are put on staircase banisters as well to prevent scratches from items accidentally touching the surface. 

Labeling Items

If you have items that will be going to a storage facility, such as if you are in-between homes and moving to a temporary home, those things will need to be labeled appropriately. Boxes and furniture should be marked with labels that identify them as going to storage or the next home. This will help ensure that something you need temporarily is not moved to a storage facility. Boxes should also be labeled with their destination at your new home to ensure that things are placed in the proper rooms. 

Packing And Furniture Disassembly

Full-service movers are going to pack everything for your move, which will help ensure that items are not damaged during the move. Expect as much furniture as possible to be disassembled prior to the move, so all that needs to be done on the moving day is to load the pieces into the moving truck. Items will also be packed appropriately in moving boxes, with specialty boxes being used for things like glassware when appropriate. 

Moving Day

All of the heavy lifting will be handled for you on the day of the move. It is common for large furniture to be the last things moved onto the truck and the first things moved into your new home. Furniture that was disassembled will be reassembled with care to ensure that everything is put together correctly. Boxes will also be unpacked at your new home when appropriate. 

For more information about using a full-service moving company, contact a local service provider.
