For most of us, looking forward to moving means looking forward to arriving. The space in between is filled with to-do lists and practicalities, and it can be daunting. Thankfully, full-service moving companies exist to take the burden out of moving.
These companies will take all of the tasks associated with preparing for and making your move. By enlisting their help, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and daydream about waking up for the first time in your new home. What exactly will moving services do for you? We’ll give you the run-down on what you can cross off your list.
Supply Packing Materials
Don’t spend time running around town searching for free boxes, or loading up on new ones at a moving or shipping store. Hiring a full-service mover means the supplies come to you. They’ll bring everything needed such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. They’ll also bring furniture blankets and additional padding that you may need in transit.
Pack and Unpack
Not only will a full-service mover bring the supplies, but they’ll also do the packing for you as well. Packing can be a daunting task for many, particularly when it comes to small or breakable items. Expert movers have the skills and know-how to pack your things for safe transport. Leave it to them, and you’ll not only save yourself a lot of time but you’ll be sure your items arrive safely on the other side.
Once you arrive, you can leave the unpacking to your mover as well. They’ll sort the boxes into the right rooms and pack them all for you. Why spend your first night stepping over boxes? Let the experts take care of it for you.
Disassemble and Reassemble Furniture
If you’re moving pieces of furniture such as dining tables, bed frames, or your office desk, you’ll likely need to take them apart for smooth transport. Your full-service mover can help by disassembling all of this furniture, keeping the hardware fixings organized, and loading them onto the truck with the right protection and padding.
Once you arrive at the other side, you won’t need to dig around for screws and bolts. Your mover will reassemble these pieces, and then place them in your house where you’d like them. This can all be a time-consuming – and sweat-inducing – task, so leave it to your movers.
Transport Your Things
Your moving company will of course live up to its name and physically move your things. Even if you choose to pack and prepare them all yourself, they can show up when everything is ready to go and perform the heavy lifting.
Movers are not simply experts in carrying and shifting your boxes in and out of the truck. There is an art to packing the truck safely for transport. They’ll know just how to load your things so they arrive without damage due to shifts while on the road. They’re also fully insured, so you don’t worry about unforeseen issues.
Dispose of Packing Materials
We’ve all been there. Piles of empty boxes taking up space and tattered bits of tape, paper, and bubble wrap strewn all over the floor. The aftermath of a move leaves a trail of stuff you’re just not sure what to do with.
There are places to donate boxes and scrap the extra materials, but why bother? Your mover can not only pack and unpack your boxes, but they’ll bring the materials to your home and take them away at the end of the day. That saves you a lot of hassle, leaving you to simply enjoy all of your new, clear, organized space.
