Things Your Movers in Denver Want You to Know

Packing for a MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

When you are moving and enlist professional movers in Denver to assist, there are some tasks which you can do and other tasks that you likely should not do to help nail down a smooth moving process. A smooth move starts when all parties work together which indicates that you need to know if you might assist and when you might get out of the way.

Read on for things that your moving company in Denver would like for you to know.

1) Nobody likes Surprises on Moving Day

This tidbit should be covered when you are receiving your moving estimate, and it is uber important, hence it is worth saying again. If you own awkward shaped items, such as a piano, refrigerator, or even hot tub, which you want to be moved, always communicate that to your moving company in Denver. Some things may take extra preparations, equipment, or men to move, therefore it’s never a doable idea to “surprise” your professional mover in Denver with unforeseen things on moving day.

2) Prepare for the Movers Arrival

Do you live in a gated community or an apartment complex with an elevator? Can the moving truck easily get to your home? Take a minute prior to moving day to go through the specifics of where the moving van can park and what the path to and from the truck will be. If you need to obtain a parking or elevator permit from your building manager, make sure and do that well ahead of time.

3) Finish Up Packing Before Moving Day

If you completing your own packing, be sure that it’s done ahead of moving day. That means that all the boxes are taped closed and adequately labeled. To help things go even faster, efficiently stack the packed boxes in a central location in your house, such as the garage or the family room so that the moving company workers may easily load them onto the moving truck. Pro tip: Do not use masking tape on your boxes. Use packing tape instead.

4) No Not Pack Heavy Items in Large Boxes

There are guidelines for what to place in which size boxes for a reason. Adhere to these suggestions. Items that weigh a lot, such as books, should go in small boxes. Items which are fairly light, such as towels and blankets, can go in large boxes.

5) Plan to be Present on Moving Day

You or someone that you trust needs to be there for the full moving day in the event your movers have any questions regarding what they should and shouldn’t move. Plus, a trustworthy adult should be present to sign all the mover’s paperwork.

6) Let the Movers Work

You may believe that you are helping when you lend a hand to move the hot tub, yet it’s normally best to not. You may point the movers to the correct rooms and answer questions, but beyond that, allow the professional movers in Denver do the heavy lifting so that the move will go as flawlessly as possible.
