What will my moving day look like?

Here’s what a typical moving day looks like when you hire our professional movers:

  1. Early Morning Arrival: The moving crew will arrive at your current home early in the morning, typically at the time you’ve previously arranged with us. They will come prepared with all the necessary equipment, including a moving truck, dollies, packing materials, and tools.
  2. Walkthrough and Inventory: Before they start packing and loading, the movers will conduct a walkthrough of your home to assess the items that need to be moved. This helps them create an inventory list, prioritize items, and develop a plan for efficient packing and loading.
  3. Packing Services: If you’ve arranged for packing services, the movers will carefully pack your belongings into boxes and containers. They will use appropriate packing materials to ensure the safety of your items during transport. If you’ve packed your items yourself, the movers will inspect and, if necessary, make adjustments to ensure everything is secure.
  4. Loading the Truck: Once everything is packed and ready, the movers will start loading your possessions onto the moving truck. They will use proper techniques to maximize space utilization and secure the items to prevent shifting during transportation.
  5. Transport to the New Location: We will then drive the loaded truck to your new home.
  6. Unloading: Upon arrival at your new home, the movers will carefully unload your items from the truck. They will place boxes and furniture in the designated rooms as per your instructions, making the unpacking process more organized.
  7. Reassembly: If your furniture was disassembled for the move, the movers will reassemble it in the appropriate rooms.
  8. Final Check: Before they leave, our local movers will do a final check to ensure that all your belongings have been unloaded and everything is in its proper place.
  9. Finalization: Once we’re done, we’ll settle the bill. Once our local movers have left, you can start settling into your new home.

A moving day with professional movers can vary depending on the size of your home, the amount of stuff you have, the distance between your old and new locations, and any additional services you’ve requested. However, the primary goal is to make your move as smooth and efficient as possible while minimizing the physical and emotional stress typically associated with moving.

We can do both residential moving and commercial moving. If you just need labor, we can also provide you with labor-only moving services. Call us for a free quote today!
