For a person thinking about a long-distance move, the details of the move itself are just staggering—sorting and boxing up your belongings, deciding who is doing your packing, planning moving vans, working with a realtor to sell your house and finding a new one--these are just a couple of the items that lead to sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your yard. And once you do drop off to sleep, you're having scary dreams about a sketchy moving crew loading your entire life into a decrepit moving truck with dubious mud flaps-so staying awake is actually preferable to that scenario.
Relax. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to fret about the logistics --you will have a move coordinator to guide you every moment of your move to Denver, step by step, and be your point person throughout--from calculating how much packing material you'll need to making sure the pool table is set up at your new home. With a move coordinator on your side, you will never panic about your move.
Here are a few items your move coordinator will help you with, beginning with supporting the account manager with your estimate.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
No matter if you are packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to do it, you'll want to get 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 house, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks you will require, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you will need for each room. If you decide to pack yourself, they'll provide you suggestions on how to pack the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you've gone through the entire residence—house, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials required to get you on your way. If you've got belongings in a mini-storage, be sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to forget to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage unit that is filled to the brim.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only retains top-quality, experienced movers. The crews that report to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be taken apart and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the job--from a pool table to a washing machine, you can rest assured that the job will be done correctly. If you change your mind about anything (donating the pool table 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 involve moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only help with the technicalities of transporting your wheeled things, but can advise you on registering and tagging them if you're going to a new state or country.
Storage in Denver
Sometimes your new home is not quite ready, or you're downsizing and not sure what you'll 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 knows how to pack for storage, based on your timeframe for when you will need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped according to destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings being put into storage. When you are ready to have those items delivered, just alert your move coordinator and the trucks and movers are on their way.
