As we near the end of peak moving season (typically from late spring to early fall every year), we’ve put together a list of commonly asked questions to help prepare anyone planning their big move next year.
What day should I move?
This may be tough if you work full-time, but research suggests that Tuesdays are the best day to move. This is due in part to the fact that Friday and Saturday are the most common movers’ days, which are also when our services at Keep It Moving Logistics are at their busiest. Logically, it’s often easier to move when you have school-aged children because you’re then able to label boxes and properly direct the movers. Families with young children can find this process difficult as they are expected to be present throughout the entire day. If you have small children, it can be difficult to provide them with the attention they need as you’re moving. This is why it’s best to move on a weekday if at all possible. Additionally, utility companies like cable and internet providers are open on weekdays, so it will be easier for you to set up those services at your new home right away.
How much will it all cost?
That all comes down to where and how much you’re transporting. The industry norm is an hourly fee for most tasks, with moves that exceed 100 miles costing by weight. Of course, it’s simple to obtain a quote from Keep It Moving Logistics! Although relocating is often unforeseeable, disclosing any vital details to your future mover company can prevent potential issues. For example, will there be an elevator available or will they need to haul items up a flight of stairs? How many total rooms you’ll require packing and is everything in the designated areas moving with you? Providing this information to Keep It Moving Logistics will help them provide a more accurate estimate for your appointment, and determine how much you’ll pay in the end.
On the day of your move, it is crucial that you are there to sign paperwork and walk the movers through everything that needs to be done. Once they have loaded up the truck, do another check for anything that may have been missed before they leave – because once they’re gone, their job is done.
At unloading, the movers will arrange boxes in the rooms indicated on their labels (i.e., bedroom, kitchen, garage). Furniture will be placed in the location you designate. If you have a general sense of where you want furniture put, this will save time and money. It will take longer if they have to move and switch furniture all over again.
Tips and Food
It is acceptable to tip movers for a job well done, and they will take the money and distribute it amongst themselves. However, offering food or beverages is not required of you. Of course, these gestures are frequently acknowledged, but they simply demonstrate how wonderful and giving our community in Denver is!
