Is there a move in your not-too-distant future?
We would like to show you how moving and storage companies can help you during each phase of your move. You may not need all of these services, but you will definitely find at least some of them highly beneficial.
When It’s Time To Pack
Have you looked around at everything you own? Chances are, you have much more than you realize!
Start with your living spaces. As you walk from room to room, you’ll see some combination of the following:
- Entertainment center(s)
- Area rugs
- Wall art
These are just the larger items. Then there are all of the knick-knacks, collector’s items, books, CDs, DVDs, electronics (including televisions, computers, and game consoles), kitchen appliances (such as a toaster oven and a microwave), and sporting gear that you own.
Now look in your cupboards and closets. You’ll find a wide assortment of kitchenware, from dishes and glasses to cookware, blenders, and food processors. Your closets are full of clothes, shoes, mementos, luggage, and linens. Then there are the special collections you own, the tools you need for your hobbies and interests, and heirlooms that have been passed down from previous generations.
We’re not done yet! The bathrooms are full of tiny things you use daily and other small items you need every so often. Your garage has items stored there, possibly everything from garden tools to stuff you need that doesn’t fit anywhere else in your house.
When you sum it up, you have a lot more than you realize! And packing it all prior to your move will take you much longer than you anticipate, unless you hire moving specialists who do this type of work day after day and have developed a system to streamline and speed up the process without compromising on quality. A professional moving and storage service can save you time and help the packing process go smoothly for a better experience overall.
Loading The Truck
Whether you plan to use trucks provided by moving and storage companies, or you’re renting a truck for a DIY move, don’t underestimate the strength required to load your wares onto the moving van. It’s also quite a puzzle to fill the truck correctly so that nothing gets damaged. You can’t simply pile boxes randomly or throw a full sofa in. Furniture has to be protected, boxes have to be stacked just right, and everything needs to be arranged correctly so that glass isn’t broken, cloth isn’t torn, and boxes aren’t squished. Loading the moving truck the right way takes special skills that a moving and storage service provider has developed from years of experience!
Store Until You’re Ready
You may need to pack your items in stages. For example, if you’re selling your home, your realtor will probably want to do what’s called staging. This means presenting your house in the best way possible to get the most interested buyers and the best offer possible.
Staging often involves packing up approximately half of what you own in order to reduce clutter and make your space more inviting and appealing to prospective buyers. This is a great idea that frequently moves the selling process along much more quickly.
The question is, what will you do with all of the items you have to remove from each room? You can’t stuff your closets because prospective buyers will be looking inside them. You probably don’t have enough space in your garage for temporary storage, either.
For many individuals, the solution is to pack up what they won’t need until the move is complete and put it all into temporary storage. This declutters the home so your realtor can show it in the best light possible, but it has another benefit, too: it lets you handle the packing portion of your move in stages, which some people find more manageable.
Across Town Or Across The Country
Once everything is packed and ready to go, how are you going to get it to your new location? It doesn’t matter if it’s on the other side of your city or the other side of the nation; you need reliable drivers who will move your valuable items with great care, making sure nothing gets damaged in transit. Long-distance moving companies are used to driving our interstates and our less-traveled roads to get clients’ items safely from one place to the next. When you rely on a company like UDYAT to move your items, you will have peace of mind knowing that the most qualified, conscientious, and skilled movers are taking care of your items in transit.
After the moving truck has arrived at your new location, it’s time to unpack! Even if you plan to handle the unpacking of boxes yourself, perhaps even a little at a time, professional movers will do the heavy lifting for you. They will unload the moving van and bring everything inside for you. Let their muscles do the hard work for you! They can even open boxes and either unpack, if you wish, or let you do the unpacking, if you prefer. You have options.
Reassembling your furniture can take a great deal of time and effort, and you may not have the skills or experience to reassemble everything correctly. If you need assistance with furniture assembly after the move, moving and storage companies are available to help.
More Storage Solutions
What if you move into a home that’s much smaller than what you had before? What if not everything fits into your new place, but you’re not ready to get rid of it? In such a case, storage and warehousing may be just what you need. As part of your moving and storage services, your overflow items can be safely stored offsite until you are ready for them again.
