How to Prepare for a Tiburon California Moving and Storage Company
You have already gone through the online reviews for different Tiburon, California cheap moving companies, received numerous quotes from cheap moving services providers and settled on a trusted mover you would like to hire. It is time to get ready for a stress-free moving day, especially in cases where a full service moving company charges an hourly rate. You have to employ every trick in the book that ensures the mover spends as little time at your home or office and that the residential moving process goes through as seamlessly as possible while maintaining the quality of service. Here are several tips on how to go about it.
Start packing early
Did you that a significant portion of your time is spent in the packing stage? In most cases the moving truck and moving labor may arrive at your home or office premises on time, only to find a disorganized house. Instead of packing immediately, they are forced to wait as you sort your belongings. This not only limits how efficiently the process moves but also pushes the moving prices up and in effect the quote.
To be on the safe side, consider sorting your household goods or office wares in advance. If possible, start packing the non-fragile goods like clothes and cutlery and leave the heavy lifting to the moving staff. Additionally, remember that the type of packing boxes used not only affects the unpacking process but also the time it takes to load and unload your goods.

Consider using standard sized boxes from the Tiburon cheap movers that allow for stacking. Additionally, by hiring a full service moving package from a moving and storage services provider, you stand to benefit from reduced prices and a favorable final quote.
Maximize the use of labels
Labeling can help reduce the amount of time the moving storage employees spend unloading and organizing your new home or office. This in effect helps bring down the moving price based on the aggregated hourly rates. To achieve this, take time to label these boxes with numbers that correspond to the room they occupy in the new environment before office moving. Having labeled moving boxes also means that you don’t have to be physically present at the new home showing the local movers where to place the different items as they unload them from the trucks.
Disassemble the furniture
To save on space and allow for more organizes loading, most commercial movers request that some furniture like beds and cabinets be disassembled. In most cases, you need to wait for a professional mover to dismantle them for you, go ahead and tear it apart if you have the required tools. However, for some furniture like cabinets and dressers, liaise with the licensed and insured mover to determine the state in which to move them.
Categorize your belongings
You also need to categorize your belongings according to the level of care each demand. For instance, separate the fragile and delicate items like electronics from the rest. The separation comes handy in cases of long distance relocation as it helps the moving staff understand how to load the delicate goods in the moving truck to withstand the different terrains during the interstate or cross-country haul.
Moving to a new home or office doesn’t need to be stressful as is a common belief. You only have to come up with an actionable moving plan on time, settle on an affordable Tiburon, California moving services provider and start readying for the moving day while hoping that the mover matches you with courteous staff.
