Ways to Make Your Corporate Relocation Easier

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Corporate Relocation

corporate-relocation916

A corporate relocation can be a very big deal, especially if you are upsizing or downsizing your office location. Packing and unpacking takes time, and anything that is not packed properly could end up being damaged before it gets to your new space. In addition, with a corporate move, you want to make sure that some of your key items are easily accessible once you get to the new location. For example, you do not want the entire office staff hunting for the copier while trying to satisfy customer orders. We can move and unpack you, so that this is never an issue.

The best thing you can do with a corporate move is to make sure you get an estimate, a checklist, and detailed advice from our company. We will come in, give you an estimate of how much the move will cost, and help prepare you and your staff for the big move. It is important that you listen to us, as we will give you the best advice to save you time and money. Corporate moves are a very specific type of move, and we are well versed in how to successfully transport an office and its staff from one location to the other.

The first step of a corporate relocation is to walk through the office and give you ideas and tips on moving. For example, one common mistake that people make is believing that they have to empty out all the filing cabinets because they will not be able to move unless the filing cabinets are empty. While this is a great way of applying conventional thinking, it may not be necessary, and you may be able to empty the two top drawers of a four-drawer lateral to prevent damaging the cabinet. It is important that you bring up all your questions and embrace all the options and procedures for moving things like artwork, office equipment, or something else that may be easily damaged, in order to prevent any unnecessary risk.

Any corporate relocation efficiency is your friend. You want to make sure to take advantage of any tools that are available to help you streamline your move. For example, individual cardboard boxes have rapidly been replaced by reusable plastic totes and tubs that are far easier to handle. If you think about a cardboard box and all the effort that goes into packing it, it makes sense that plastic totes or tubs would be far more efficient. You no longer have to go through all the rolls of tapes and stacks of cardboard boxes that have to be assembled before the move, and then broken down and trashed after you are done moving. Plastic totes make it plain and simple to move by allowing your employees to simply place everything into the plastic bins, close them, and put an identifying label on them. Once the bin has been transported to the new location, the employee can easily locate the plastic bin that belongs to them, pull out all the items, and finish their part of the corporate relocation

Ultimately, if you want to move with very little inconvenience, we can handle everything from the packing to the moving, and unpacking for you.

Making Your Move Easier: Tips from Moving Companies

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Companies

moving-companies

As moving companies go, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with the most seamless move possible. Part of this comes from our experience as a moving company and ensuring that the customers know exactly what to expect as they move houses. We know that moving can be an extremely stressful time for the family, particular for children and pets.

Tips for Moving with Children

One of the easiest things to remember about a move, which will help make your life significantly easier with the children, is to ensure that you do not pack their favorite toy and instead, let them take it with them on the trip. Parents often feel that the move is an excellent opportunity to get rid of some of the extra toys that the children have accumulated. It is important to remember that your child is already feeling stressed, and any removal of a favorite toy could lead to added stress for them and for you. While this does not necessarily fall under the purview of moving companies, we know that providing you with these kinds of easy and simple tips could help make your move far easier. Here are a few more helpful hints to plan your move successfully.

Scheduling Makes Things Easier 

Any good moving company will tell you that scheduling is one of the keys to a successful and seamless move. You want to ensure that you make your reservations for the moving company to come out at least two to four weeks before the actual day of the move. Similarly, you want to make sure to schedule disconnect times for about a week before you move, if possible. You do not want to pay and accept bills for your phone, utilities, and cable when you are no longer living at the old residence. While you are in the process of scheduling your disconnect at the old house, you should also make sure to schedule the service to be installed for at least a week or several days before you arrive at the new location. This will allow you to move into the new house and have all the gadgets and gizmos you need.  The moving company's job is to make sure we move all your belongings from location A to location B. Everything else will be up to you, so we highly recommend that you make a moving day list.

Final Tips

Once our crew arrives, things will start to move at a rapid pace. You may want to consider packing a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it is the last thing added to the truck. You should also bear in mind that it is against the law for moving companies to transport hazardous materials such as bottle gases, gasoline, ammunition, explosives, or any other flammable items. If you plan on moving any of these, you should pack them in your personal vehicle before or after the move.

Remember that we can pack everything for you, move you, and even unpack. As a result, we can make your move as easy as you want it to be.

Relax and Hire Affordable Long Distance Movers to Do the Heavy Lifting

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Long Distance Movers

long-distance-movers

A long-distance move requires the assistance of long distance movers.  There are many people who dream of just hitting the open road and moving to a destination far away. In today's society, this dream has become far more plausible with the availability of employment and housing even in the most distant locations. However, if you are planning a long-distance move, there are certain factors that you will need to take into consideration. Among these is how you are going to transport all of your valuables, and your household possessions, from the location you are currently living across the long distance, to your new home.

Getting Help is More Affordable Than You Think

Too many people believe that the best option is to simply do it themselves, and never even take the time to price out the affordability of hiring long distance movers.  Further, if you are considering a long-distance move, with you doing all the moving, you need to factor in the inconvenience of having to pack up all your stuff, the inexperience you have with hiring the right truck from the right trucking company, and even whether or not you are going to lose valuable possessions because of a lack of experience with packing them securely.  All of these should factor into your final decision as to whether you need to have a long-distance moving company help you move or you want to do it all yourself.

We Can Pack for You

There are certain inherent advantages to hiring our company as your long-distance movers. The first and foremost among these is the ability to get all of your stuff packed by the professionals. Did you know that packing alone is going to account for approximately a quarter of your entire moving expenses?  And that's just the financial pitfall of doing the packing yourself. Most people who pack boxes themselves end up purchasing or acquiring, way too many boxes. Stuck with far more than they need, they typically then decide that they need to fill them all with stuff.  This hodgepodge arrangement of packing often results in breakages and damage.

In addition to the cost, people who choose not to use long-distance movers will also spend weeks packing, whereas if they had hired our company it would only take us a few days to get all your stuff put away and taken to the new destination.

We Make it Easier to Access Your Belongings 

One of the largest complaints about the inconveniences of moving that people have is the inability to access their stuff because it is packed away in boxes. Using long-distance movers can help you alleviate this problem.  If that wasn't incentive enough, when you have long-distance movers you are hiring professionals  who put the safety of your belongings as a foremost concern. Your personal belongings are most likely going to be insured by you, giving you a level of peace of mind. In addition, we are going to be using devices like heavy-duty wrapping, which most self-movers do not even know about, much less use, for all furniture and plastic covers which will help avoid damage and shield your stuff from exposure to the dust and dirt as they make the long journey.

Local Movers: Benefits to Hiring Our Company

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Local Movers

local-movers

Did you know that local movers are used far more frequently than long-distance movers? This is because people frequently change their houses or offices within the same location, the same town, or even the same state and have a use for local movers. This is much more frequent  than moving across the country.

It is always advisable to use local movers when you are moving your home or your office to a new location. While many people believe that the distance influences their need for a mover, the basic concepts of moving do not change whether you are moving across the street or across the country. First among these is the need to protect your stuff and ensure that it moves from one location to the other without any form of damage, exposure to the elements, or getting lost. There is no doubt that many people are able to achieve this of their own accord, however for most people it is far more advisable to simply hire a local mover who can do the job quickly, efficiently, cost effectively, and while providing you with a peace of mind so that you can focus on other things involved in the move.

The Advantages of Hiring Our Company to Move You

When you hire local movers to come and move your home or office to a new location, one of the distinct advantages they offer is the use of the right equipment. When you choose to do it yourself, during a home or office move locally, you are going to rely on being able to rent equipment or, even worse, borrowing the equipment from friends and family. To do it yourself is a fair idea if you have access to the right equipment, which most people do not. Borrowing a truck from your relative is not going to give you access to all of the moving equipment that you are going to need. As your local mover, we are going to use tools like appliance dollies, ramps, custom built trucks, hoisting straps, two-wheel and four-wheel dollies, and air ride cushions to transfer your belongings in a safe and secure manner. Whether you are going across town or across the street, the damage that can happen to your belongings without the use of the right equipment is mitigated by working with our company.

There is another advantage to using local movers that most people do not even take into consideration. This is the fact that we are intimately familiar with the locality you are moving out of and the locality you are choosing to move into. Because we are a professional moving company we are very thorough at running local area checks, to ensure that we can park the trucks and keep them parked for the amount of time it takes to load and unload all of your belongings.  Additionally, we are going to make sure that they use the easiest route to get in and out of your locations. All of this makes it so that your belongings are transported in a safe and secure manner, getting to the destination on time.

Tips from Professional Movers on Preventing Damage During Your Move

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Professional Movers

professional-movers

It's amazing how as professional movers, we get asked all the time what the best way is to protect your breakables and valuables when you are moving houses or offices. A simple answer is to hire us as your professional moving company. While that answer may seem to be slightly self-serving, one of the best ways to protect your valuables and ensure that your breakables will make it in one piece is to hire someone who understands the work entailed in moving somebody. As professional movers, we will ensure that we protect your property to the best of our ability.

There are certain steps you can take that will help us move you faster, help protect your breakables, and give you relative peace of mind as the move is happening. We also understand that moving can be an extremely stressful experience, and so here are a few tips you should incorporate into your move.

Create an inventory: The very first thing you should do is create a comprehensive inventory of all your stuff. Making a list of all your items will give you peace of mind knowing that if you lose something, you will be immediately aware of it. In addition, it allows you to create lists to go into specific boxes and will help you discard something you may not want to take on the move. If you don't have sufficient time to create an entire inventory, another option is to take photographs of your possessions before they are packed away. As professional movers, it is always helpful to us if our clients have an inventory.

Keep small items and things like jewelry on your person: If you are going to use a professional movers company, it is always highly recommended that you hang on to things like paperwork, jewelry, and smaller items that can travel with you in your own vehicle. This allows you to quickly locate an item that has extreme value and also gives you a level of peace of mind. In addition, small items can easily get lost if they are packed into boxes and put into the back of a professional movers’ truck. Finding the grand piano may not be a challenge, but finding your favorite set of pearl earrings could be slightly more difficult if you are moving an entire house and both of them are packed into the same space.

Self-Packing Tips: If you decide that you want to do some of the packing beforehand, which many people using professional movers prefer to do, it is important that you follow a few general rules. First, you should always invest in solid boxes that will not rip, tear, or dump the contents on the floor as they are being moved. Secondly, do not overfill the boxes or make them extremely heavy, which makes them difficult to transport to and from the professional movers’ truck. Finally, plates, glasses, and bowls are probably the most likely things to break during the move, so we recommend that you wrap each of these individual items in at least two, preferably three, sheets of newspapers and stack them together for added protection.

Again, if you want to move everything safely, the easiest thing to do is give us a call.  We can get you there in one piece and make the process of moving far easier. 

Hire Our Moving Services and Let Us Take Care of the Details

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Moving Services

Moving-Services

Hiring a moving services company can be one of the most intelligent decisions you can make when planning a big move. Everybody knows that moving can be extremely stressful. Packing up the entire house, making sure you didn't miss anything, preparing the house for the new owners, and then worrying about the location you moving to are just a few of the things that add to a person’s stress when considering a move. Most people we speak to understand that having to move without the assistance of a moving services professional can be an additional stress, as you have to worry about packing things up, unpacking them, moving things into a truck, hiring the trucks, and all kinds of other nuances that go into moving.

We Take Care of the Details 

Once you hire a professional moving services company, you no longer have to concern yourself with any of these minor details. It is important that you have the right moving company, so all your stuff gets there in a timely manner and the costs remain within due bounds. As a moving company, we even work with people who have to move all the time, like people in the military, and once you have used a moving company, you will never go back to wanting to move your stuff by yourself again. Here are two of the main reasons why people prefer to work with a moving company, rather than struggling to figure out if their favorite couch will fit through the doors of the new place.

Convenience: Convenience is the number-one reason why people use a moving services company. Once you have signed the agreement, set up the dates and times for your pickup and delivery, and packed up some of your smaller and more valuable possessions, you no longer have to worry about any of the details of the move. This allows you to focus on your extremely personal belongings, like your clothes and spending the time you need to get your family ready for the move. It also allows you to focus on things like your job, daycare, school for the kids, and all of the other small details that make moving so stressful. Removing the concern of having to worry about trucks, boxes, and other moving essentials provide a large degree of convenience for people who use moving services professionals.

Professional Care: It is perfectly possible, since people do it all the time, to move yourself. However, in the event that you move yourself, you will have to deal with all the issues that come with moving without the professional training and expertise a professional mover has. As a professional that specializes in moving services, we know exactly how to move all your stuff in the quickest, most experienced, most cost-effective way possible and with the least amount of breakage. Protecting your assets, ensuring that the move is smooth and seamless, and getting your stuff to its destination exactly as it was picked up is part of the professionalism you can count on when you have us as your moving service.

When you are planning a move, let us handle the details so that you can focus on the bigger issues like getting your family settled in your new home.

Residential Movers for Military Families

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Residential Movers

Residential-Movers20166If you are active-duty in the military, there is a good chance that you are going to receive assignments at different bases throughout your time in service. If you are a single person, moving is not as much of a big deal. However, if you are married with children, each time you relocate that is a significant burden on your family. This can lead to marital strife and basic tensions as your spouse is trying to get your home and children ready for a move that could potentially be across the country. By the time you're on your second or third move, they may be close to refusing to go. The good news is that we can help reduce the stress of the move.

We Can Help Ahead of Time

One of the major stressors is the preparation. It is packing everything and labeling everything. It is packing the truck full of boxes and undoing furniture so that it can fit appropriately. Then the stress of moving the truck across the country and dealing with rush hour traffic can commence. All of that is before you arrive at your new home and have to go through the unpacking, the sorting, putting the furniture back where it belongs, and dealing with the mess. Fortunately, we can eliminate or reduce the majority of this stress.

What Our Services Include as Residential Movers

As residential movers, we can come to your home and pack everything carefully into boxes, labeling as we go.  We can then load the truck and drive it wherever it needs to go for you to reach your new base and home. Once there, we can unpack and put all of the boxes in the appropriate rooms based on the labeling system and we can even set up your furniture in their desired location. This means that you and your spouse will only have to unpack your basics and decorate your home, rather than doing all of the heavy lifting. This can help your spouse to become excited for the move rather than dreading it.

You Can Depend On Us

If you have been through an unsuccessful move before due to hiring a moving company that didn't show up on time or failed to show up at all, you can depend on RMC Movers to be there when you need us to be. We are reliable because we take pride in what we do and our ability to help you continue to serve our country.

Call Residential Movers As Soon As You Find Out About Your New Assignment

The sooner you can call us the better because this will allow us to help you plan ahead for when we need to pack everything up, when the truck needs to be on the road and coordinate our arrival time with when your new home is going to be ready and you have the keys.

Contact Corporate Movers if You Are in Human Resources or Operations

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Corporate Movers

Corporate-Movers20166If you work in human resources for your company, we encourage you to call us to discuss how we can assist you as corporate movers. If you are responsible for recruiting key employees, there's a good chance that you are going to need to recruit people from outside of the area and potentially outside of the state. This can create logistical challenges when trying to plan where your new recruit is going to live and how to move them and their family from their current home state to where your corporate offices are. As corporate movers, we can make the process simple and easy.

Corporate Movers Keep the Process Simple

By eliminating the need for your new employee to hire their own movers and schedule everything precisely, we can provide all the services that you and they need to ensure that transition is smooth. As professional corporate movers, we realize that this is extremely important because your employees' first impression of working for your company is going to be based on what it takes to get them to their first day on the job. If they are trying to move their family and deal with the hassle of movers that don't show up or need to pack and move by themselves, they are likely to be frazzled by the time they arrive. They could be worn out before day one. This is not how you want someone you spent so much time recruiting to feel.  

We can make it easy for your new employees by packing all of their belongings, ensuring that everything is in the correct boxes and labeled for organizational purposes, putting everything on the truck, driving the truck to their new home, unloading the truck and placing their objects in the correct room. This way, they can walk in and begin unpacking rather than needing to sort or deal with putting everything in its place. We can also take down furniture and put it back together and their new location. If your new employee also has a variety of Fine Art, we have the skills and expertise necessary to transport it safely.

As corporate movers, we have the skills and experience necessary to get the job done right and ensure that your new recruit has a positive and pleasant experience.  We also understand that as a human resource manager, your job is to keep the cost down whenever possible. We will work with you to set corporate rates that meet your budgetary guidelines and requirements, and this will help you to ensure that you are not over-budget when hiring a new employee. We can also discuss corporate payment terms and more to ensure that your experience working with us is convenient for you, in addition to being convenient for your employee.

Call Today for Help Moving Your Office 

We can assist you with all aspects of moving your new recruits or relocating current employees.  We can also assist you with corporate moves if you are relocating your office to a new suite or to a new building altogether.  Whatever your moving needs are - we can help.

If you feel like you have called your friends to move you one too many times, this is the move that you should call professional movers.

As the best movers in town, we help people move ....

Across town.

Many people make the mistake of thinking that if they are moving in the same neighborhood or ten minutes away, that they don't need professional movers. The benefit of hiring a moving company is not simply to drive the truck. The same amount of work is going to go into you moving next door as it would across the state. We can make it easier.

To a new state.

Long-distance moves can be more tedious because you have to think about everything and make sure that you are planning ahead. After all, it is not possible to simply run back to the house and gather anything that you have missed. We are thorough and we are prepared so that you don't have to be.

We provide the following services -

#1 Packing.

Most people hate the idea of packing up their belongings. It takes a lot of time, is tedious, and it can be exhausting. This is why we offer to pack as part of our services. We will bring the supplies that are necessary and get the job done while you handle other business.

#2 Moving.

We will carefully move your belongings wherever you need to take them. This way you don't have to worry about driving a moving truck through traffic or navigating congested city roads.

#3 Unload and set-up.

Once we are at your new home, we can unload everything that has been placed in the moving truck and deposit it in the room where it is going to stay. For example, kitchen boxes will go in the kitchen, the dining table and chairs will be set up in the dining room, your bedroom furniture will go in the bedroom and your clothes in the closet. We can set everything up for you which goes above and beyond what you might expect from a moving company. However, when you engage this aspect of our services, you will have the benefit of walking into a home that is starting to look and feel like it belongs to your family.

Hire the Best Movers by Calling Our Office Today

Whether you are moving down the street or across the country, we are here to help. We encourage you to call today and let us know when and where you will be moving so that we can assist you.

Call Quality Movers When Moving Grandma

Written by Rosalyn Smith on . Posted in Quality Movers

Quality-Movers20165As quality movers, we help families through important transitions. One of these important times is moving your grandmother, parent, or elderly relative into their retirement home or condominium. For elderly people, the idea of moving into a smaller space and out of their primary residence can be stressful and intimidating. It is a situation that is often required due to the health of the person involved but that doesn't mean that they are looking forward to the change. Imagine how stressful moving can be for you when you have made a choice to relocate to somewhere different. When it comes to elderly people that are moving due to their health rather than desire, the stress is only magnified. This makes it important to do the things necessary to help alleviate that stress as much as possible. We are here to help you to do so.

Reasons to Hire Quality Movers for Your Elderly Relative's Move

#1 Attention to Detail

As professional movers we pay attention to every detail. For example, when walking through the home with you, you can let us know where a certain piece is going to go in the new destination. This makes it possible to identify which paintings need to go in the new bedroom, dining room, or living room. Every detail that needs to be made note of we can do so, ensuring that the move goes quickly and seamlessly.

#2 Safe Packing

We will pack up everything in a manner that is completely safe and secure so that you don't need to worry about anything breaking, tipping, or cracking along the journey. This is really important when moving an elderly relative because you have likely already paired down their belongings. What remains are things that typically have sentimental value. We respect this and will do our part to keep them safe.

#3 Stress-Free Move

Moving does not have to be stressful when you have someone visiting their home and packing everything for you. We will then load up everything into the truck for transportation and once at the new location we will unload the truck. In this way, you can spend all of your time and attention focused on the emotional and physical needs of your loved one rather than worrying about their belongings.

#4 Fast Set-Up

Once at their new home, we can unload the truck and set everything up for you. This means that all the furniture can be placed in the specific rooms its going in, all the paintings can be placed where they need to go, and the boxes deposited in the right location. We can even set up furniture or unpack if necessary. Our goal is to make the move as easy as stress-free as possible and this is one way to do so. By the time you bring your grandmother or elderly parent to their new home it will look and feel like a place they belong and rather than a moving mess.

Call to Schedule Quality Movers Today

We are happy to assist you in moving your elderly relative to their new retirement home or condominium. This can be a stressful time but it can be easier with our help, so call today and schedule their move.
