Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

If you are moving and work with a professional moving company in Tulsa & Oklahoma City to help, there are some things that can be done and also other things that you should not accomplish to hasten the task. A streamlined move results from everyone cooperating, and that means that you have to know when you ought to lend a hand and when you need to get aside.
 

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

1) Notify the Movers of Heavy Pieces

This tip ought to be mentioned when you are getting your moving quote, and it’s very essential, so it is worth mentioning. If you have got bulky objects, such as a keyboard, refrigerator, or perhaps hot tub, that need to be moved, make sure and relay that to your moving company in Tulsa & Oklahoma City. A number of items make need various other arrangements, equipment or maybe movers to move, so it’s not a good idea to “surprise” the professional mover in Tulsa & Oklahoma City with unexpected things.

2) Get Ready for the Movers Arrival

Are you living in a private community or perhaps an apartment complex that has an elevator? Can the moving truck conveniently gain access to your residence? Take a moment prior to moving day to think through the specifics of the spot that the moving van will park and what the route both to and from the truck resembles. If you need to get a parking or elevator permit from your building manager, make certain and accomplish that far ahead of time.

3) Finish Packing Before Moving Day

If you opt to perform your own packing, ensure 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 the living room so that the moving company crew can easily load them directly onto the moving van. Pro tip: Never use masking tape for your cartons. Apply packaging tape instead.

4) Do not Put Heavy Things in Big Cartons

There are recommendations for what to put in which size boxes for a reason. Items that are weighty, like books, will need to go in small cartons. Things that are fairly light, like pillows and comforters, can go in larger cartons.

5) Prepare to be Present on Moving Day

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

6) Let the Movers Work

You may think that you are helping if you lend a hand to maneuver the fridge, but it’s normally better to keep out of the way. You can direct the movers to the right rooms as well as respond to questions, but over and above that, let the professional movers in Tulsa & Oklahoma City carry out the work to ensure that things go as smoothly as is possible.
