Things Your Movers in Oklahoma City Want You to Know

Packing for a MoveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

If you are moving and employ professional movers in Oklahoma City to help, there are a few jobs that you can do and other tasks which you likely shouldn’t do to help provide a smooth moving process. A smooth move happens when all parties work together which indicates that you must recognize if you need to help and when you might step out of the way.

Below are things that your moving company in Oklahoma City wants you to be aware of.

1) No one appreciates Surprises on Moving Day

This advice should be talked about when you are receiving your moving estimate, and it happens to be very critical, hence it’s worth noting. Should you have bulky items, like a piano, refrigerator, or hot tub, that need to be moved, always communicate that to your moving company in Oklahoma City. A few things may take extra preparations, equipment, or perhaps men to move, therefore it is not a great idea to “surprise” your professional mover in Oklahoma City with unexpected things on moving day.

2) Be Organized for the Movers Arrival

Do you live in a gated community or an apartment complex that has an elevator? Can the moving truck easily gain access to your home? Take a few minutes before moving day to work through the details of where the moving van can park and what the path to and from the truck will be. Should you have to get a parking or elevator pass from the building manager, be sure and handle it well in advance.

3) Finish Up Packing Prior to Moving Day

If you are doing your own packing, ensure that it’s done ahead of moving day. That means that each box is taped closed and adequately labeled. To help things move even more rapidly, efficiently put the packed boxes in a central location in your residence, for instance the garage or the living room so that the moving company workers may without issue load them onto the moving truck. Pro tip: Never use masking tape on your boxes. Use packing tape instead.

4) Never Put Heavy Items in Large Boxes

There are suggestions for what belongings to place in which size boxes for a reason. Pay attention to these tips. Belongings which are weighty, such as books, should go in small boxes. Things which are generally light, such as towels and blankets, can be placed in large boxes.

5) Plan to be Present on Moving Day

You or someone that you know should be there for the entire moving day if your movers have any questions about what they should and should not be moving. Plus, a capable adult must be present to sign all the mover’s paperwork.

6) Let the Movers Work

You could think that you are helping when you lend a hand to move the fridge, however it is usually better to stay out of the way. You may guide the movers to the correct rooms and answer questions, but beyond that, allow the professional movers in Oklahoma City do the heavy lifting and the move will proceed as flawlessly as possible.
