For someone thinking about a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just astounding—sorting and packing up your belongings, deciding who is doing your packing, confirming trucks, selling your old house and securing a new home--these are just some of the things that produce sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do fall off in slumber, you are having scary dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a dilapidated moving van with questionable mud flaps-so being awake is actually superior to that scenario.
Relax. If you select the right moving company, you do not have to stress about the logistics --you'll have a move coordinator to assist you throughout your move to Tulsa, step by step, and act as your main point of contact throughout--from deciding how much packing material you'll need to making sure the pool table is set up at your new house. With a move coordinator on your side, you will never worry about your move.
Here are a few items your move coordinator will do for you, starting with supporting the account manager with your quote.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
Regardless if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to do it, you will require 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 home, and walk through with you to determine not only the quantity of trucks you will require, but can tell you how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll need for every room. If you choose to pack yourself, they will give you tips on how to pack the boxes so they are not too heavy. Once you have gone through the entire residence—main floor, basement, attics, garage—you'll get an idea of the time and materials required to get you moving. If you have stuff in a storage locker somewhere, be sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to not remember to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is packed full.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced helpers. The crews that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be taken apart and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the project--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can rest assured that the task will be done right. If you change your mind about anything (donating the swing set or deciding to take the big sofa after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Nationwide moves usually involve moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only aid with the technicalities of transporting your wheeled things, but can inform you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.
Storage in Tulsa
Sometimes your new home is under construction, or you are redecorating and not sure what you will want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not completely done when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you wait to complete moving in. Your coordinator is knowledgeable on how to pack for storage, based on the timeframe for which 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 items going into storage. When you are ready to have those belongings delivered, just call your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
