Shopping for Moving Companies? Here Are Some Things to Do Before Moving Day
If the search for local moving companies is over and you’ve decided on Philpot Relocation Systems, the time has come to begin final preparations before moving to your new home. With nearly 50 years in the moving industry, we have more knowledge about the moving process than virtually any other moving companies in the Atlanta area and are happy to share some tips that will help make your move as easy as possible.
Have a floor plan ready – When your furniture is being delivered to your new home, you’ll want to have a furniture plan drawn up ahead of time so the movers will know exactly where to place your furnishings. One of the easiest ways to prepare a floor plan for moving companies is to draw a layout of where you want your furniture to go in your new home, number your furniture on the plan, then tag your furnishings with the corresponding number.
Be sure you’re available on moving day – When you have professional movers packing and loading your belongings, you’ll need to be present to answer any questions they may have about where things should go, provide special requests, and double-check the inventory list. If you can’t be at home on the day of your move, be sure that you have a trusted friend or relative stand in to assist.
Ensure there’s ample room for the moving truck – Moving companies have large trucks, and that can be an issue if you have a cramped parking area. Be sure you can provide plenty of room for a large moving van to park in front of your home so the movers are always in close proximity to the truck and can more quickly load your belongings.
