For someone considering a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just overwhelming—sorting and boxing up everything you own, determining who's doing your packing, scheduling trucks, putting your house on the market and buying a new residence--these are just a few of the tasks that induce sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your yard. And once you do drift off to sleep, you are having scary dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety moving van with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is probably preferable to that scenario.
Take a deep breath. If you select the right moving company, you do not need to worry about the details --you'll have a move coordinator to guide you through your move to El Paso, step by step, and be your move manager throughout--from deciding how many boxes you will need to making sure the swing set is set up at your new home. With a move coordinator in your corner, you will never panic about your move.
Here are some items your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with helping the account manager with your moving estimate.
Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials
No matter if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to do it, you'll want to get supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will arrive at your house, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks you'll need, but can tell you how many boxes--and what sizes—you will need for each room. If you choose to pack yourself, they will provide you pointers on how to pack the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you have gone through the entire residence—house, basement, attics, garage—you will get an idea of the time and materials required to get you moving. If you've got off-site storage, make sure and mention that, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is filled to the brim.
Plan for Disassembly and Assembly
A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced movers. The guys that arrive at your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the project--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done correctly. If you change your mind about what you want to move (donating the pool table or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.
Manage Vehicle Transport
Interstate moves usually involve moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the technicalities of relocating your wheeled things, but can direct you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.
Storage in El Paso
Sometimes your new residence is still being built, or you are downsizing and not sure what you'll want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you are waiting to finish moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you will need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and furniture going into storage. When you're ready to have those belongings delivered, just call your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
