Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

When for preparing a move, you realize that you need a certain amount of time to prepare for packing, scheduling time with the moving company in Oklahoma City, and your journey in the truck. Most people have a few months of advance warning to plan their move and solidly arrange the moving services they need. But sometimes, a move occurs for us suddenly. You may be transferred to a different position and a completely new city with your company, maybe there may be a family emergency and you need to get across the state quickly. And unfortunately, these abrupt moving plans sometimes take place right during the summer time moving season rush when moving companies are near their most busy levels and most booked.

The good thing is that you are not stuck being forced to DIY the whole move with a rented truck. You can still obtain the professional moving company services you could normally count on with the proper approaches and a little flexibility. Today, we are here to give a few helpful tips on carrying out a last-minute move to Oklahoma City regardless of whether it happens within the end of summer time rush.

Do Most of Your Packing DIY

What really matters for most of us is having the boxes packed in the truck, the weighty household furniture safely and securely moved, as well as the large moving van managed by experienced professional movers. But what about packing? Packing can be very time consuming, so if you are contemplating a DIY pack job, here are some points to keep in mind.

You are more than efficient at folding your closet into boxes along with hanging bags. With a few internet tutorials, you can discover how to take advantage of packing paper and dish packing grids to ensure your plates, cookware, and collectibles are securely packed. Undoubtedly, you'll be able to pack up most of the not-so-delicate things in your closets and you may even be capable to recruit pals, neighbors, or perhaps coworkers to get it done more rapidly should you be prepared to reimburse them in pizza.

Even when you opt to not have a professional moving company in Oklahoma City provide help to pack, they could assist you to equip yourself to pack expertly with all the cartons, packing products, furniture pads, and dish grids you require to do it correctly. And, if you get part of the packing completed and realize that you are in over your head, do not be afraid to pick up your phone and call your local moving company to ask for help.

Be Around to Move on Weekdays

Weekends are the single greatest demand time for moving services no matter what season it is. It could possibly really be impossible to identify a summer weekend that isn't scheduled. But weekdays differ. Mainly because considerably fewer people are accessible to oversee the moving process on mondays to fridays, movers often have these days, or perhaps available hours in the course of weekdays, open and readily available for last-minute movers who didn't arrange a saturday or sunday a few months ahead of time.

For many people who need to move suddenly, weekdays are less of a challenge as your typical schedule and plans have already been switched on their head. If your job is moving you, you may be able to request a few added compensated days off to take care of the sudden move. If you're switching employers, you may have enough time at home on weekdays to deal with this scheduling quirk.

And if you cannot be available on weekdays, you may well be able to get in touch with a buddy or neighbor who's accessible who can oversee the move on your behalf as you are at work.

Talk with Your Movers and Ask for Recommendations

Finally, do not be afraid to question your moving company for extra recommendations. Professional movers in Oklahoma City recognize much better than other people how it is like to handle a rushed moving job and would certainly be more than pleased to give a couple of recommendations. Talk to your movers regarding your mutual schedules to find the right days where both you and they are accessible and take into account any tips they offer on how to make the schedule work.

Your movers may even have helpful guidance and expert suggestions from many years of expertise concerning how to pack up quicker, how to keep your cherished belongings secure while hastening, and what to do regarding un-movable things like houseplants, domestic pets, or even your chemistry set collection.


Moving in the eleventh hour, even throughout summer time moving rush, doesn't have to imply doing it all on your own. If you're prepared to work with your moving company in Oklahoma City, we will assist you in finding the best dates, times, and methods to get everything finished promptly to the maximum quality level even though there's no time to generate careful moving plans.
