Things Your Movers Wish You Knew

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

If you are moving and hire a professional moving company in Tulsa to help, there are some things that you can do and also other things that you should not accomplish to hasten the process. A streamlined move results from everyone cooperating, which of course means you have to know when you should lend a hand and when you should get aside.

Here are things which your moving company wants for you to know.

1) Alert the Movers of Heavy Pieces

This tip should be mentioned when you are getting your moving quote, and it’s very essential, so it is worth mentioning. In the event that you have got cumbersome objects, like a keyboard, refrigerator, or perhaps hot tub, that must be moved, make sure and relay that to your moving company in Tulsa. A number of pieces make need various other arrangements, equipment or maybe movers to move, so it’s not a wise decision to “surprise” the professional mover in Tulsa with out of the blue things.

2) Prepare for the Movers Arrival

Are you living inside a private community or perhaps an apartment complex that has an elevator? Can the moving truck conveniently gain access to your home? Take a moment ahead of moving day to think through the specifics of the location where the moving van is going to park and what the route both to and from the truck resembles. In the event that you have to get a parking or elevator permit from your building administrator, make certain and accomplish that far ahead of time.

3) Finish Packing Before Moving Day

If you decide to undertake your own packing, make certain that it's done before moving day. That will mean that all the cartons are taped up and accurately labeled. To make things move even quicker, neatly place all your packed boxes in a centralized area at your residence, for instance the garage or even the family room so that the moving company crew can easily load them directly onto the moving van. Professional tip: Do not ever use masking tape for your cartons. Apply packaging tape instead.

4) Do not Put Heavy Things in Big Cartons

There are guidelines for what to put in which size boxes for a reason. Items that are heavy, like books, will need to go in small cartons. Things that are fairly light, like pillows and blankets, may go in larger cartons.

5) Prepare to be Present on Moving Day

You or someone that you know and trust must be on hand for the whole moving day should your movers have any questions about the things they should and shouldn’t be moving. Plus, a responsible adult must be present to sign all the mover’s paperwork.

6) Let the Movers Work

You might think that you are helping if you lend a hand to move the fridge, but it’s normally better to keep out of the way. You may direct the movers to the right rooms and respond to questions, but beyond that, let the professional movers in Tulsa do the work so that things go as smoothly as possible.
