Your Mover Wear A Lot of Hats--These Are the Big Ones

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Everyone who has ever moved understands what an sentimental time it is--saying goodbye to your home, your close friends, job, community--is understandably difficult. What many of us don't realize, at least not right away, is the part that your moving company in Oklahoma City takes on in aiding you through the moving transition.

Professional movers tend to be the most amazing multi-taskers of the world. Here are only a portion of the hats they will put on, and off the books offerings they supply.

Psychologist

Your moving staff manager mightn't have a master’s degree in psychology (don't discount it), however he has spent a lot of time around people in transition, and he has been told everything. Consequently, it's very important to pick a moving company in Oklahoma City that you feel comfortable with. When you fall apart walking through the (now teen's) first nursery for the final time, that is the shoulder you sob--or at least sniff a lot--on. When you are needing to decide whether to hold on to a truly ugly reclining chair that you had when you were first on your own and you couldn't find the money for anything better looking, that's the person you turn to for suggestions. When you find yourself questioning if it is ok to throw out the items your mother-in-law gives you for Christmas and you aren't keen on, he will be your Dear Abby. Choose smartly--a good moving crew is worth its weight in gold…and therapy.

Mathematician

One of many big mysteries of life is how a couch which slid inside your family room like the renowned greased pig has grown to a size that will make you believe you're just going to need to leave it for the new homeowners. Enter your moving company. They know how to organize the team in the right angles so that your big comfortable couch turns the corner as if it's on wheels. Also they are good with computing the number of cartons you'll have (take your calculation and double it) and figuring out the size moving van it will take to carry it all.

Among the initial questions you will get is, "How many bedrooms?". This gives them a rough idea of the pieces of furniture you have-- a four-bedroom house is more likely to have multiple living areas compared to a two-bedroom apartment. For those who have any substantial items, email a photo with proportions. The more details you'll be able to provide them with up front, the more exact the estimates shall be.

The Chippendale's Apprentice

Thomas Chippendale--get your head out of the gutter. Chippendale used to be a master furniture maker in the 1700s, and his iconic design remains to be the final word in stylish rooms. At any rate, most of your home furniture has been constructed from several parts, and the easiest way to move it is to take it apart. If your furniture is more Ikea as opposed to exquisite, you will still require a professional to take that stuff apart--it's more complicated as compared to standard pieces that have identifiable bolts and screws.

Have baggies at hand for the screws, bolts, and whatnot that you will need to put stuff together again.

Engineer

Now that every one of the tables and bed frames have been disassembled, the dresser drawers are emptied, and also the pans and pots are packed, it has all got to be put into the moving van. Now is when the moving company in Oklahoma City definitely shines--they are space organizing geniuses. Seasoned crews function much like a well-oiled machine. They understand what to place in the moving van first, the best way to organize all the things to ensure that the weight is evenly dispersed, and all things are in the suitable place once the journey is over and the truck pulls in your new driveway.
