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

When for preparing a move, you understand that you must have a specific amount of time to prepare for packing, reserving time with the moving company in El Paso, and your journey with the moving van. Many of us have many months of advance warning to plan their move and solidly arrange the moving services they need. But occasionally, a move comes for us suddenly. Maybe you are transferred to a new position and a totally new area with your company, maybe there is a family crisis and you need to cross the state in a hurry. And regrettably, these abrupt moving plans from time to time take place right during the summer time moving season rush when moving companies close to their most hectic levels and most booked.

The good thing is that you're not trapped having to DIY the complete move using a rented moving truck. You could still receive the professional moving company services you'd usually count on with the right techniques and a bit of flexibleness. Now, we're here to supply a handful of helpful tips on performing a last-minute move to El Paso even when it takes place over the end of summer season rush.

Complete the Majority of Your Packing DIY

What truly matters for most of us is having the cartons loaded onto the moving truck, the heavy furniture properly moved, as well as the large moving van handled by knowledgeable professional movers. However what about packing? Packing can be extremely time intensive, so if you are thinking of a DIY pack job, here are a few items to keep in mind.

You are more than capable of folding your closet into boxes and also hanging bags. With a few internet guides, you can learn how to utilize packing paper and dish packing grids to ensure your dishes, cookware, and collectors items are properly packed. Certainly, you'll be able to pack up all the not-so-delicate things in your closets and you may even be able to recruit friends, neighbors, or perhaps co-workers to make it happen faster should you be prepared to reimburse them in pizza.

Even when you elect to not have a professional moving company in El Paso assist you to pack, they could assist you to equip yourself to pack adeptly using the cartons, packing products, furniture pads, and dish grids you need to have to do it properly. And, if you get part of the packing concluded and are aware that you're in over your head, don't be scared to pick up the telephone and contact your local moving company to request help.

Be Accessible to Move on Weekdays

The weekend is the single greatest demand time for moving companies regardless of what time of year it is. It might truly not be possible to identify a summer time weekend that is not reserved. But weekdays differ. Because significantly fewer people are open to oversee the moving process on mondays to fridays, movers often times have these days, or even available hours throughout weekdays, open and accessible for last-minute movers who failed to book a saturday or sunday several months in advance.

For lots of people who must move abruptly, weekdays tend to be less of a challenge because your regular schedule and plans have already been flipped on their head. When your work is moving you, you could be in a position to ask for a couple of additional paid days off to deal with the unexpected move. In case you are switching jobs, you may have enough time at home on weekdays to deal with this scheduling quirk.

And if it's not possible to be available on weekdays, you may be able to get in touch with a pal or neighbor who is available who can supervise the move on your behalf while you are on the job.

Work with Your Movers and Request Advice

Lastly, you shouldn't be bashful to question your moving company for additional tips. Professional movers in El Paso know much better than anybody else how it is like to take care of a hurried moving job and will be more than happy to give a few pointers. Talk to your movers about your mutual schedules to determine the best days where both you and they are available and take into account any helpful hints they supply concerning how to make the timetable work.

Your movers could even have useful guidance and professional suggestions from decades of know-how concerning how to pack up speedier, how to keep your treasured belongings safe while rushing, and what to do concerning un-movable things like houseplants, pets, or your chemistry set collection.


Moving at the eleventh hour, even in the course of summer time moving rush, doesn't need to indicate carrying it out all oneself.

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.
