Know If You Should Help The Mover With Packing And Moving Your Furniture

The process of moving to a new house can be challenging if you do not hire the right moving company to help you in packing and moving your belongings to the new home. Getting an experienced mover can be a time and cost saver in that you do not have to worry about buying professional packing supplies, or even worry about whether the moving company will pack your items as required. One question that many people have is whether it is weird to help the mover with packing and moving your furniture. Read along to get an answer to this concern as well as learn what you need to do as your mover packs your stuff.

Help in other ways

Everyone who hires a moving company does so to distance themselves from the trouble and stress associated with lifting and packing items for the move. So while you may not want to do all the heavy lifting or strenuous packing activities, there are other ways you can help.

Ways you can help movers pack

There are numerous ways that you can assist your movers to pack effectively. Some of these ways include:

  • Disconnect and unplug all appliances, lamps, and electronics: These items, appliances, lamps, and electronics can interfere with how effective the mover does their work. Getting them out of the way can help boost the productivity of the moving company. It is also an appropriate way to minimize the risk of damage and breakage to your electronics and other items as the moving company team move around.
  • Get your mattress off the bed and pack your beddings: Make it easy for the mover to dismantle and pack you bedframe by ensuring that you strip the bed of its mattress and other beddings. This way, the mover will have an easy time packing the bedframe for the move.
  • Create enough room for anything the mover should not touch: Probably, you have certain items that you do not wish the mover to handle. Move all these items to a specific area such that your mover does not interfere with them. Declutter your house by getting such items out of the way for the mover makes the packing process quite easy and fast for them –you do not want to add concerns on where to pack such items.
  • Empty all your shelves and cabinets: If you have shelves in your house, ensure that they are empty before the movers can pack them. Such an approach ensures that you secure all your important documents stored in the cabinets and shelves while at the same time making it easy for the mover to pack all your shelves, cabinets, and other furniture.

Hiring professional moving services is the first step towards a stress-free move. However, for the packing and moving process to be successful, you need to offer your assistance in different ways but not necessarily in lifting or moving the furniture. Be sure to play your role so that the mover is able to play theirs.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
