Some Things You Will Need to Take Care of Even When Hiring a Removal Company
Even when there is a moving company involved in the complex move you are taking on there will still be something you will need to take care of personally to help the move run smoother and these things are very important to be aware of during the move. Logistics are the main aspect of any move and working with a removals company will run a whole lot smoother if you take care of some of these issues below that may arise and some extra steps so they can work efficiently and with haste.
To prepare for the moving team that will show up at your home it is a good idea to take anything hanging on the walls off such as picture, posters and mirrors. This will prevent them from being knocked off the wall accidently as there will be a lot of traffic through the home and after everything is taken off the walls it these things should be leaned against a wall sideways in a spot out of the way to prevent damage from occurring. If the removal company will be packing these items make them aware of where they are located.
Preparing appliances for removal is another important step that you should take care of for the moving team before they arrive as well. This will make the removal move quickly and without hang-ups. To get the appliances ready for removal they need to be removed from their places at least pulled away from the walls and disconnected and if you cannot handle the disconnection yourself make sure to let your removal company about this so they can bring the appropriate tools.
It is a good idea to move the packed boxes to a wide open room for the removal company to have easy access to them too. This is important because if the movers have to go room to room removing each of the rooms then it will slow the removal time and cost you money that doesn't have to be spent. Something else you will want to do is mark all the boxes, so that their contents are known to the crew and to you. When it comes down to the unpacking of the boxes if they are marked you will know exactly what they contain and for which room they need to go.
One more thing you will need to take care of is moving any chemicals as moving companies will not pack, transport or even handle chemicals. There is a very specific reason for this and that is because chemicals can easily cause injury when packed in boxes. Make sure that you do not pack chemicals in boxes and if it just has to be done transport these boxes at your own risk.
Try to stay in good communication with the removal company and make them aware in any changes of plan, so they will be thoroughly prepared on the day of your removal. This is one aspect of hiring a company that will be on you, basically you will need to be the coordinator of the move and let them handle the loading and lifting.
