It’s your moving day. Your anxiety levels are reaching epic proportions. There are so many details to remember. And, so many things that can go wrong. You are worried about breakage, whether your furniture is going to fit in your new place, whether you will be able to find things when you get there and a million other uncertainties. Even if you have moved umpteen times in your life, it is wise to expect the unexpected: traffic, broken elevators or finding an entire closet whose contents you forgot to pack.
Move managers take on the responsibilities associated with the logistical aspects of a residential move. They understand that it is more than taking things from point A to point B. Before a single box gets packed, move managers recommend trusted moving companies and request estimates. Then they help you decide what to take and what to downsize, taking measurements and creating floorplans and arranging for the distribution of unwanted belongings through sale, donation and recycling. In addition, they procure supplies that maximize the efficiency of the move and develop a step by step plan designed to keep everyone on track. Every box and bag is labeled with its contents and the room where it needs to go.
Moving companies LOVE working with move-managers/organizers because they make everything absolutely move-ready. Without move-managers, movers may arrive on location and the person they’re moving might have packed, but they haven’t packed everything. Boxes are still open. Sometimes people use the boxes they get for free from the grocery store, they are all different sizes and shapes, some don’t have lids. All these things make it more difficult for movers to load trucks properly.
Once the unloading is completed at your new location, move managers are instrumental in getting you settled quickly. They apply their organizing skills to set up your new home so you can get back to managing other important activities devoted to family, work and getting acquainted with your new surroundings. Nobody loves moving. A move manager will make the difference between a successful transition and chaos.
Doing it right and doing it with move managers saves time and saves you money.
