A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Tulsa

Family Moving to a New HomeFor someone contemplating a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just mind-boggling—sorting and boxing up everything you own, deciding who is doing your packing, planning moving vans, selling your old house and buying a new home--these are just a few of the things that produce sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do fall off to sleep, you are having nightmares about a crude moving crew loading your entire life into a ramshackle moving van with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is actually preferable to that scenario.

Take a deep breath. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to worry about the details --you'll have a move coordinator to help you throughout your move to Tulsa, one step at a time, and act as your move manager throughout--from figuring up how much packing material you'll need to ensuring the washing machine is set up at your new house. With a single point of contact, you will never fret about your move.

Here are some tasks your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with supporting the account manager with your estimate.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Whether you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to accomplish it, you'll want to get supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of 10 years in the moving industry--will visit your home, and walk through with you to calculate not only the quantity of trucks you will require, but can tell you how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll want for every room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you suggestions on how to pack the boxes so they are not too bulky. Once you've gone through the entire residence—house, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials needed to get you out the door. If you've got off-site storage, make sure and make that known, too--the last thing you want is to not remember to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is packed full.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced moving crews. The crews that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be disassembled and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the job--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 something (donating the refrigerator or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Interstate moves usually mean moving your automobiles, 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

Sometimes your new residence is still being built, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way done when you move. Your move coordinator sets up for short-term storage while you wait to complete moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you'll 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 being put into storage. When you are ready to have those items delivered, just notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
