Moving to a new home is an exciting and life-changing experience. However, the preparation and logistics involved can be overwhelming, especially for first-time movers. At Litemovers, we understand this sentiment and are committed to making your transition less stressful by providing comprehensive moving services. Here are some essential tips to help you prepare for your big move.
BEFORE THE MOVE
Before the move, it is essential to ensure that all appliances are unhooked and disconnected from electricity, cables, and wires. If possible, disassemble bed frames, exercise equipment, and other bulky items to save time and make the moving process smoother. However, if you are unable to do this yourself, don’t worry. As a full-service moving company, we offer disassembly, assembly, and other services to make your move as convenient as possible. However, please remember that time is money, so it’s best to plan ahead to avoid unnecessary delays.
DURING THE MOVE
During the move, it’s crucial to prioritize your safety and that of the movers. Please keep a safe distance while they move heavy furniture items to avoid any accidents or injuries. You can also make the process more comfortable and more pleasant for everyone by providing water or drinks to keep the movers hydrated and energized. It’s essential to note that we should be the only vendor working in your home on moving day, so ensure that your pets and children are well taken care of during this period.
UPON COMPLETION OF THE MOVE
Upon completion of the move, before we leave, take the time to walk through both homes (origin and destination) to ensure that everything that was loaded or unloaded is accounted for. This is especially important when dealing with delicate items like dressers with attached mirrors, bookcases, bed frames, and tables. Check for any missing pieces such as shelves, glass shelves, or table leaves. Before the movers leave, ensure they show you the back of the truck to verify that nothing was left behind.
At Litemovers, we provide a wide range of services to make your move less stressful. From packing and unpacking to loading and transportation, we have everything covered. Our team of professionals is committed to helping you with every step of the process, so you can focus on settling into your new home.
