Know If Your Mover Should Help You With Unpacking As Well

The moving process involves numerous activities such as finding a new house, finding the right mover , packing, loading, clearing with your previous house manager, offloading and unpacking. With such activities involved, it is possible to get confused especially if you do not hire professional moving services. However, with proper preparation you will find the whole process easier. In most cases, people find it challenging to unpack safely once they have reached their new home. Subsequently, the question of whether or not the mover should help you with the unpacking process becomes imminent. Here is a discussion to help you answer that.

Factors that determine whether your mover should help you

Getting help with the unpacking process can be great. However, the decision to let the mover help you depends on a few factors such as the following:

  • Do you have enough people to help you unpack? It is no doubt that the unpacking process can be hectic. It requires enough skilled people not only to unpack fast but also to make the process successful. Perhaps you have many family members or friends around who can help you unpack. In such a case, you may not need the help of the moving crew to unpack.
  • What services have you paid for? When hiring a moving company it is important to be specific in the package that you are getting. There are companies whose focus is on just to move your items without taking part in the packing or unpacking processes. Have you subscribed to such a service? If yes, then you will not expect the mover to offer any form of assistance in the unpacking process.

  • Your preference: There are people who have certain privacy policies. For example, you only want to handle your items by yourself because you consider them personal or private. In such a case, you will not need a mover to help you in the unpacking process if you hold such privacy policies. In some cases, you feel free to let the mover handle only certain items such as living room furniture, and for the others such as clothing you consider yourself as the only person to handle them.

Benefits of letting the mover help you unpack

If you allow the mover to help you unpack, you will benefit from the following:

  • Professional skills: Most probably the moving crew has provided unpacking services to many clients before. This gives them the necessary experience to guarantee you a successful unpacking process.
  • Safe handling of the items: The experience of the mover gives you the assurance that the unpacking process will be safe. You cannot compare the level of care that the moving crew is going to give to your items with what you can get from your friends.
  • Faster unpacking: Usually, most people tend to unpack only a few items on the same day they have arrived at their destination following a condition of much exhaustion. However, with the help of a qualified mover you can be assured to finish the unpacking process on the same day.

With the appropriate help, you can unpack your items successfully and fast. While friends and family members can help you with this, the help that you can get from a qualified moving company is invaluable.

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!
