Is your employer giving you a moving stipend to hire professional movers? If so, it may be tempting to complete the move yourself and keep the money. Many people think that it would be fairly easy to handle the move and use the money for things like new furniture. We are here with a piece of friendly advice - hire movers anyway.
Make a list
When relocating for work, it is important to make a list of everything that the family needs to do. This list needs to include boxing up everything in the home, cleaning the house, loading the truck, driving it to the new location, unloading, and unpacking everything. All of these tasks are in addition to doing things like signing up for new health insurance and finding a school or daycare for the kids while getting settled and accustomed to a new environment. The list is probably far longer than one would anticipate.
Start off on the right foot
Completing all of the tasks associated with the move can be incredibly exhausting. It can be difficult for anyone to manage all of this activity while also preparing to start a new position or to work for an entirely new company. It can be overwhelming and leave a person feeling exhausted when they should be on their "A" game for a new position.
By hiring professional movers, it is possible to alleviate the burden of the packing and focus on other factors of adjusting to a new home. For example, no one else can make the final decisions on which home to purchase or rent.
No one else can make decisions regarding finding a school for the kids or a new doctor. These things take time and only you can do them. What can be delegated, is the move and that is what we are here to assist with.
How professional movers can help
When moving a client, we like to have a conversation ahead of time to discuss our various services and how we can be supportive. We can handle as much or as little of the move as is necessary. When a client hires us to handle the move from start to finish, we can come into the home and pack everything into boxes, labeling each of them with the specific room they came from.
We can even pack up valuables and breakable items to ensure that they are transported safely across town or across the country. On moving day, we can then load up the truck and take apart furniture to help everything fit securely. We can then drive the truck to the new home and unload it once there. With everything properly labeled, we can put the boxes and furniture into the correct rooms at the new home. We can even set furniture back up and unpack if necessary. This makes it possible to begin enjoying the house immediately.
