Preparing for a move can be stressful and you may be used to packing things into your own vehicle and calling it a day. However, are you living in a home that’s much larger than any you’ve rented/own previously? It might mean that you have move stuff that you expected and that moving this time won’t be an easy one man job. So, what can you do to help the professional movers Los Angeles when your moving day homes? Elite Moving and Storage has put together a few tips on how to be best prepared to help the our moving team during your moving day.
If you are the kind of person that likes to help you should note that movers are professionals and can easily get your belongings into a moving truck. So, instead of accidentally being underfoot here are a few ways to help movers.
Pack and Label
One of the biggest things (and most appreciated) that you can do for you moving team is clearly label everything while you pack. This is simply because its best that everyone who touches your boxes knows what in them. It will prevent anyone from placing fragile items at the bottom of a stack. Be clear with your labeling and remember to state whether something is fragile or not. If a box simply says “cups” it might mean plastic cups and not the family-prized crystal cups you have been passing down from generation to generation.
Pack Your Fragile and Transport Them By Yourself
Many of us have fragile and sentimental items that we wouldn’t trust to other people, no matter their experience with moving. If you are one of those people you should consider packing your fragile items in smaller boxes and transporting them in your own vehicle to reach your new place. Accidents happen and if one were to occur you would feel better know that you did all that you could in your own hand so to see your fragile items from point A to point B.
Being a gracious host should be at the top of anyone’s list when welcoming people into their home. When movers are doing their job it can be tiring, sweaty and thirsty work. Offer then water or other non-alcoholic refreshments during their time hauling boxes. They may appreciate the small break your provide.
Let Professional Movers Los Angeles Do The Work
If you are the kind of person that feel propelled to help then this step might be the hardest of all. If you have hired movers it’s probably best that you stay out of the way and allow them to do their job. They’ve moved plenty of people’s belongings before and know how to lift heavy items safely and without injury. No one likes that feeling of being micromanaged, so keep calm and allow your team to do their job. They’ll be happy and efficient and your items will be cared for with skill and experience.
