For a person contemplating a long-distance move, the logistics of the move itself are just astounding—going through and boxing up everything you own, determining who is doing your packing, scheduling trucks, working with a realtor to sell your house and buying a new house--these are just some of the items that induce sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do drop off in slumber, you're having nightmares about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a dilapidated moving truck with debatable mud flaps-so being awake is probably superior to that scenario.
Calm down. When you choose the right moving company, you do not need to fret about the particulars --you'll have a move coordinator to assist you throughout your move to Tulsa and Oklahoma City, step by step, and be your main point of contact throughout--from calculating how many boxes you will need to ensuring the pool table is set up at your new residence. With a single point of contact, you will never worry about your move.
Here are some of the items your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with assisting the account manager with your estimate.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
Regardless if you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to accomplish it, you'll require supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of ten years in the moving industry--will come to your home, and walk through with you to determine not only how many trucks you will require, but can verify how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll need for every room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you tips on how to fill the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you've gone through the entire property—living area, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials necessary to get you moving. If you have off-site storage, be sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is packed full.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only employs top-quality, experienced movers. The guys that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to handle the project--from a grandfather clock to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done right. If you change your mind about anything (donating the swing set or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Interstate moves usually mean moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the specifics of relocating your wheeled things, but can advise you on registering and tagging them if you're going to a new state or country.
Storage in Tulsa and Oklahoma City
Sometimes your new residence is not quite ready, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator sets up 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 will 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 items going into storage. When you are ready to have those things delivered, just notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers are on their way.
