Planning a Last-Minute Move to Tulsa Over the Late Summer Rush

Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

When for preparing a move, you know that you require a certain amount of time to prepare for packing, scheduling time with the moving company in Tulsa, and your journey using the moving truck. Most of us have a few months of advance notice to organize their move and solidly book the moving services they require. But sometimes, a move occurs upon us suddenly. Maybe you are transferred to a new job and a whole new city with your workplace, possibly there is a family emergency situation and you must traverse the state in a rush. And unfortunately, these unanticipated moving plans occasionally take place smack-dab during the summer time moving season rush when moving companies close to their busiest levels and most booked.

The best thing is that you aren't stuck being forced to Do-it-yourself the whole move with a rented moving van. You could still receive the professional moving company services you'd normally rely on with the appropriate approaches and a bit of flexibility. Today, we're here to give a few helpful pointers on completing a last-minute move to Tulsa even if it takes place within the end of summer season rush.

Complete the Majority of Your Packing DIY

What truly matters for many people is having the cartons loaded onto the moving truck, the hefty household furniture safely moved, as well as the large moving truck handled by knowledgeable professional movers. Yet what about packing? Packing can be quite time intensive, so if you are contemplating a DIY pack job, here are some points to bear in mind.

You're more than effective at folding your closet into boxes and also hanging bags. With just a few online tutorials, you can discover how to make full use of packing paper and dish packing grids to ensure your dishes, cookware, and collectors items are securely packed. No doubt, you can pack up lots of the not-so-delicate belongings inside your closets and you might even be able to recruit friends, neighbors, or even co-workers to get it done more rapidly if you are willing to pay them in pizza.

Even when you decide to not have a professional moving company in Tulsa help you to pack, they can assist you to equip yourself to pack skillfully while using cartons, packing supplies, furniture blankets, and dish grids you need to do it right. And, should you get part of the packing concluded and realize that you're in above your head, don't be scared to pick up the phone and contact your local moving company to ask for help.

Be Around to Move on Weekdays

The weekend is the greatest demand time for moving companies regardless of the time of year it is. It may really not be possible to locate a summer time weekend which is not booked. However weekdays differ. Mainly because significantly fewer people are open to oversee the moving process on weekdays, movers often have these days, or even open hours during weekdays, open and obtainable for last-minute movers who did not arrange a saturday or sunday several months in advance.

For many individuals who need to move abruptly, weekdays are less of a concern as your typical schedule and plans have already been flipped on their head. In case your job is moving you, you could be able to ask for a few extra paid days off to manage the unanticipated move. In case you are changing jobs, you might have the time at home on weekdays to handle this scheduling quirk.

And if you simply can't make yourself available on weekdays, you could potentially be able to get in touch with a pal or neighbor who is accessible who could supervise the move on your behalf as you are at work.

Consult with Your Movers and Seek out Suggestions

Lastly, do not be shy to ask your moving company for extra tips and hints. Professional movers in Tulsa know better than anybody else how it is like to handle a rushed moving job and will be more than happy to offer a couple of tips. Confer with your movers about your mutual timetables to determine the right days where both you and they are accessible and think about any helpful hints they provide concerning how to make the plan work.

Your movers might even have valuable guidance and expert tips from quite a few years of know-how concerning how to pack up speedier, how to keep your precious things safe and sound while hastening, and what to do about un-movable such things as houseplants, household pets, or perhaps your chemistry set collection.


Moving at the last second, even in the course of the summer moving rush, doesn't have to imply doing it all yourself. If you are willing to work with your moving company in Tulsa, we will help you find the right dates, times, and techniques to get everything finished punctually to the maximum level of quality even when there's no time to produce diligent moving plans.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
