    If you are preparing for a move, you should definitely think about hiring a moving company to help you. Especially, if the move you are organizing is going to be demanding and complicated. Still, even if you are hiring professional movers, you still need to give them instructions if you want to get the help that you need. So what exactly do you need to tell your movers? In the following lines, Peasley Moving & Storage will show you the things you need to mention to your moving crew so they can provide you with the quality service you are looking for.

    Make a moving plan so you can get a better idea

    One moving company can conduct thousands of relocations during one year. And each and every move they organize is different than the one before. Of course, professional movers are fully equipped, skilled, and experienced professionals that know how to handle different situations. Still, there are still many things you need to mention to your moving crew in advance if you want your relocation to be completed in a smooth and stress-free manner.

    However, the chances are, you do not have all the information that you need to pass to your movers. That is why it is important to make a moving plan and go through every aspect of your move before you even contact any of the local movers Boise has to offer. So start with a plan and parts of that plan you will pass to your movers.

    Create a moving inventory list so you can inform your movers about the number of items that need to be handled

    After you make a moving plan, create a moving inventory list. This list needs to contain all the items that you are planning to transport in a moving truck. A moving company will estimate the price of your move according to the weight of your moving inventory.  So they need to know how many items you have so they can give you a precise quote and plan the process accordingly.

    Do you have any items that are complicated to move? Inform your movers if you do

    Another important thing that you need to tell your movers is whether you have any items that are particularly complicated to move. This includes awkwardly shaped items, heavy items, and fragile and delicate items. Do you have a piano to move or a pool table? Maybe you have a heavy safe or some heavy commercial equipment that only freight shipping Boise can transport?  A hot tub or a fish tank that only experts can handle? No matter whether you have heavy items or some delicate art pieces that require special packaging, your movers need to know that in advance so they can bring proper tools and equipment that will help them handle them properly.

    Movers will not pack your stuff unless you ask them to

    If you want your movers to pack your stuff you need to inform them about your wishes in advance

    Are you planning to pack your items on your own or do you want your movers to help you? A moving company will not pack your belongings unless you ask them to. If you want them to help you with packing notify them so they can bring appropriate packing materials and equipment. Also, if they are handling the packing, the time of their arrival will need to be rescheduled as they will need a few hours to complete the packing, depending on the number of items you own. In case you are packing on your own, inform your movers about the boxes containing fragile items.

    If you have some excess items that you plan to store, your movers should know

    When you are moving locally and you have a number of excess items that you didn’t manage to sell or donate before your movers’ arrival, you will probably need storage. Now, if you have some sensitive items that you need to store, you will probably need to rent some good heated storage Boise has to offer. So check with your movers about your options and tell them that you will need warm storage for your belongings.

    Help your movers find a parking spot for the truck

    The flow of one moving process depends on many things. However, there’s nothing that can affect one relocation process as the lack of a parking spot.  Check with your movers, who is responsible for securing a parking spot. And inform your movers about the situation in your neighborhood and what is the best way to solve that issue.  If you are securing the parking spot, make sure that you secure enough space for the truck.

    Elevator access or other complications regarding your home’s layout

    If your home has a complicated layout, tell your movers about it.

    If your home has a complicated layout, for example, you have some difficult stairs that need to be crossed, narrow corridors, sharp corners, or the parking spot for the truck is far away from the property, your movers need to know about it so they can prepare. They will need to plan the whole operation and bring in suitable equipment that will allow them to complete your move in a smooth and safe manner.

    Your travel timeline is also one of the things you need to mention to your moving crew

    Another thing that you need to mention to your moving crew is your travel timeline. Ideally, you and your moving crew will arrive at your destination at the same time. However, that is not so easy to do. Especially when it comes to long-distance and cross-country relocations. So inform your movers about your travel arrangements. So they can plan their schedule accordingly and secure a storage unit if needed.

    Tell your movers everything in order to ensure a safe move

    Those are the most important things you need to mention to your moving crew in order to ensure a smooth and stress-free process.  Of course, no one can guarantee that you won’t run into some issues along the way. However, informing your movers about important things will surely lower the risks.
