Scheduling a Move with a Moving Company

The key to a seamless moving process is organization and planning. A well-organized move means less stress for you and less hassle for your moving company, which also means fewer hours they’ll be charging you for labor. As part of your scheduled move, IMS Relocation will send out an on-site estimator to assist with a comprehensive list of all of your items.

Always check to make sure that the moving company you consider is an insured, licensed and bonded moving company. After you’ve narrowed it down to a few companies, you should examine their reviews online to see what other customers have to say about them. Compare their claims to information provided on the company’s website and information provided by a company representative.

You can make the whole process faster, easier and safer for everyone involved with your move by clearing out your home’s clutter. Host a yard sale to get rid of excess items and furniture you no longer need or won’t fit in your new home. Not only will you make some money for future furnishings or to offset your moving costs, but it also clears the way for movers to more efficiently and quickly get the furniture you’re taking with you to the moving truck without confusion regarding what you are or aren’t taking.

Everything You Need

You don’t need to spend time worrying about stockpiling boxes and packing materials! IMS Relocation offers everything needed for your move, making your move hassle free. They will put a full list of all of the materials needed for your move. They work closely with Best Price Boxes to provide discounted and recycled materials to their customers.

The Day of the Move

In the week leading up to your move, contact your moving company to get a final confirmation on arrival time and finalize logistics of the move. On the day of the move-out make sure you have ample space in front of your home or driveway for the movers to easily position and park their truck. All transportable items should be neatly packed and ready for transport and all appliances should be unplugged. IMS Relocation can assist with your appliance and electronic packing needs.

Fragile items should be packed with a combination of bubble wrap and packing paper. All fragile boxes should be properly labeled, visible and set in the proper upright position. Pack and store what items you can into your vehicle ahead of time to hasten the moving process. You may want to move your personal files, keepsakes, delicate items and preferred electronics separately.

When you and the movers arrive at your new home make sure you tell them in which rooms and where you want your furniture to be placed. Movers can help situate your large furniture items to your specifications, removing the need for you to do it later and reducing the chances of you getting an injury from trying to move heavy objects on your own.
