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

Family Moving to a New HomeFor a person planning a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just mind-boggling—sorting and boxing up all your possessions, deciding who is doing your packing, confirming trucks, putting your house on the market and finding a new home--these are just some of the things that cause sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your yard. And once you do drift off in slumber, you are having scary dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety truck with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is probably favored to that scenario.

Take a deep breath. When you choose the right moving company, you do not need to fret about the details --you'll have a move coordinator to assist you every moment of your move to Oklahoma City, step by step, and be your point person throughout--from figuring up how much bubble wrap you will need to making sure the swing set is set up at your new house. With a move coordinator on your side, you will never panic about your move.

Here are a few tasks your move coordinator will handle, starting with supporting the account manager with your moving estimate.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Whether you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to handle it, you will require 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 home, and walk through with you to calculate not only the quantity of trucks your stuff will take up, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll want for each room. If you decide to pack yourself, they will provide you suggestions on how to fill the boxes so they are not too bulky. Once you have gone through the entire property—living area, basement, attics, garage—you will get an idea of the time and materials necessary to get you on your way. If you have belongings in a mini-storage, be sure and mention that, too--the last thing you want is to not remember to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is filled to the brim.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only employs top-quality, experienced moving crews. The guys that arrive at your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator has a list of what needs to be disassembled and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to take care of the job--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done correctly. If you change your mind about what you want to move (donating the refrigerator or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Interstate moves usually mean moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the specifics of transporting 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 not quite ready, or you're redecorating and not sure what you'll wind up keeping, or you're doing some renovating and not completely done when you move. Your move coordinator sets up for short-term storage while you are waiting to finish moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your timeframe for when you will need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other items being put into storage. When you're ready to have those things delivered, just notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
