How to avoid Problems with Moving Companies???
Are you moving soon? Do not worry. You have a few weeks left to prepare, but you will need to start now. Here's everything you need to keep in mind for a flawless move!
If you haven't already, it's high time to book a truck and/or movers for the day. Consult the yellow pages, the classifieds, and the Internet to find the rare pearl who will move you without too much damage. Do not hesitate to ask for references from your loved ones! You may have difficulty finding an available company, so act quickly. Also expect to pay hundreds of Dirham more in June and July than if you chose another, less busy time. If you can afford it, select a company whose employees will pack your furniture before you move it.
If you choose to rent a truck, act now. Vehicle rental inventory is rapidly shrinking. Then, call your relatives and friends to benefit from the arms necessary for the move.
At the same time, contact your future landlord to make sure of the time of availability of the accommodation. It is very unpleasant to have to pay movers to do nothing while the chosen accommodation is still filled with the furniture of the former tenant. It is sometimes even possible that previous tenants leave, thus making your life easier.
It's time to start packing your boxes. Place books, winter clothes, and objects that you rarely use.
10 days before the actual move, start packing everyday items, less used kitchen utensils, some of your clothes. In a corner of a room, pile up the boxes and some occasional furniture.
A common mistake is to put dozens of books in big boxes. Here's a little trick. Attempt to lift the box as you fill it. If it is too heavy for you, add small, lightweight items, sheets, towels, etc. There's no point in burning yourself out or injuring your friends or movers during the move.
In the last days, collect your clothes by keeping only a few outfits, two or three, to go to work and one for the “D” day. Don't forget to properly identify the contents of each box and make sure they are solid.
Some problems that can occur during a move are practically unavoidable, but if we know what they are, we can have some solutions planned. Although there are some problems during the transfer, never lose your nerve.
One of the most frequent problems in a move is that an object is damaged because it has not been packed correctly. To avoid this, it is recommended that you pack each object carefully and use the best packaging materials, such as bubble wrap, cardboard boxes, cupboard boxes, etc. Once the objects have been placed in the truck, they must be fixed well so that they do not move during the journey.
Moving companies provide complete moving services. The professionals are in charge of disassembling, packing, moving, and reassembling each and every one of the objects.
Another big problem is the lack of planning, especially if there are children or animals involved since for them a transfer can be a bit overwhelming. If you want to know how to plan a move with children and pets, you can read some of our blog posts.
One of the most difficult factors to control is time. You have to calculate well the time of collecting furniture, how long the journey to the new home takes, etc. These times are not always met, since many inconveniences can occur during the move, but it is important to know the estimated times.
That's it, your boxes and your furniture are safe in your new home. You must unpack the boxes that contain everyday goods, crockery, utensils, useful clothing.
