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

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

When for preparing a move, you know that you must have a fair bit of time to arrange for packing, reserving time with the moving company in Tulsa, and your travel in the truck. Many of us have months of advance notice to organize their move and solidly book the moving services they need. But from time to time, a move occurs for us abruptly. You may be transferred to a different position and a whole new town with your workplace, perhaps there's a family emergency situation and you need to cross the state in a rush. And unfortunately, these unexpected moving plans sometimes happen smack-dab during the summer moving season rush when moving companies close to their most busy levels and most booked.

The good news is that you aren't stuck being forced to Do-it-yourself the full move using a rented moving van. You could still obtain the professional moving company services you could normally depend on with the right techniques and a little bit of flexibility. Now, we're here to give a couple of helpful pointers on carrying out a last-minute move to Tulsa regardless of whether it occurs over the end of summer rush.

Complete Most of Your Packing DIY

What really matters for most of us is having the cartons packed onto the moving van, the hefty household furniture safely and securely moved, as well as the large truck managed by skilled professional movers. Yet what about packing? Packing can be quite time consuming, so if you're considering a DIY pack job, here are a couple things to bear in mind.

You're more than capable of folding your closet into boxes as well as hanging bags. With some online tutorials, you'll be able to discover how to make full use of packing paper and dish packing grids to ensure your dishes, cookware, and collectors items are securely packed. Undoubtedly, you can pack up all the not-so-delicate belongings in your closets and you might even be in a position to recruit buddies, neighbors, or even co-workers to accomplish it quicker if you're prepared to reimburse them in pizza.

Even though you may elect to not have a professional moving company in Tulsa assist you to pack, they can help you equip yourself to pack skillfully using the cartons, packing supplies, furniture blankets, and dish grids you will need to do it right. And, if you've found yourself with some of the packing completed and are aware that you're in over your head, do not be afraid to pick up the phone and contact your local moving company to ask for help.

Be Available to Move on Weekdays

The weekend is the one top demand time for moving companies regardless of what season it is. It could possibly truly not be possible to identify a summer weekend which is not scheduled. Yet weekdays will vary. Because far fewer people are open to oversee the moving process on weekdays, movers frequently have these days, or even open hours in the course of weekdays, open and readily available for last-minute customers who did not arrange a saturday or sunday many months ahead of time.

For many people who have to move suddenly, weekdays tend to be less of a concern since your normal schedule and plans have already been switched on their head. If your job is moving you, you may be in a position to request a couple of added compensated days off to manage the unexpected move. In case you are changing jobs, you could have enough time at home on weekdays to handle this scheduling quirk.

And if you simply can't be available on weekdays, you may well be able to connect with a buddy or neighbor who is around who can watch over the move on your behalf while you are at your workplace.

Work with Your Movers and Request Recommendations

Finally, do not be shy to ask your moving company for extra tips and hints. Professional movers in Tulsa understand a lot better than other people what it's like to deal with a rushed moving job and would certainly be very happy to provide a handful of tips. Confer with your movers concerning your mutual timetables to choose the correct days where both you and they are accessible and contemplate any helpful hints they give regarding how to make the timetable work.

Your movers may even have valuable suggestions and expert tips from years of experience on how to pack up faster, how to keep your cherished items secure while rushing, and what to do regarding un-movable things such as indoor plants, household pets, or your chemistry set collection.


Moving at the last second, even during summer time moving rush, does not have to indicate executing it all yourself.
