A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Oklahoma City

Family Moving to a New HomeFor anyone considering a long-distance move, the specifics of the move itself are just mind-boggling—sorting and packing up everything you own, deciding who's doing your packing, confirming moving trucks, selling your old house and finding a new house--these are just a couple of the items that lead to sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your future. And once you do fall off in slumber, you are having bad dreams about a crude moving crew loading your entire life into a dilapidated moving van with dubious mud flaps-so staying awake is actually preferred to that scenario.

Take a deep breath. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to fret about the particulars --you will have a move coordinator to help you throughout your move to Oklahoma City, one step at a time, and be your point person throughout--from figuring up how much bubble wrap you'll need to ensuring the washing machine is set up at your new house. With a move coordinator in your corner, you'll never fret about your move.

Here are a few tasks your move coordinator will help you with, starting with supporting the account manager with your quote.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

No matter if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to accomplish it, you will need supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will come to your residence, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks your stuff will take up, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you will require for every room. If you elect to pack yourself, they'll provide you suggestions on how to fill 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 necessary to get you moving. If you've got belongings in a mini-storage, make sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to not remember 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 retains top-quality, experienced helpers. The guys that report to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the project--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can rest assured that the job will be done right. If you change your mind about anything (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 aid with the details of relocating your wheeled things, but can inform you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.

Storage in Oklahoma City

Sometimes your new residence is under construction, or you are redecorating and not sure what you'll wind up keeping, or you're doing some renovating and not completely finished when you move. Your move coordinator manages for short-term storage while you wait to complete moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on the timeframe for which you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and organized according to destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings going into storage. When you're ready to have those things delivered, just alert your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.

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.
