Nichols Moving and Storage has been working with homeowners for a full generation now, and we’ve helped every kind of customer under the sun. The ones that really stand out are the ones that prepare for their moves thoroughly; they’re a pleasure to do business with! (Their moves go more smoothly, too!) Here are 3 basic techniques you can use to make moving day easier for yourself and for your New Orleans movers.
1. Keep Records
Having important information at your fingertips is essential during a move. Keep all your moving documents and contact info together in one location. A moving notebook is an excellent way to organize your vital data. Don’t forget to inventory your furnishings, especially items with great monetary or sentimental value: An inventory ensures that nothing gets left behind.
2. Educate Yourself
Take a little time to learn the right way to prepare special items for a move. Although Nichols can provide expert packing assistance, learning what needs to be done yourself will ensure that all of your belongings are treated right. The Internet is an excellent tool for educating yourself this way. You can learn a great deal by searching our blog archives, and other sites can provide even more information.
3. Budget Extra Time
Hurrying may be the single best way to foul up a move. You can keep things on an even keel by building a little bit of a cushion into your moving schedule. If at all possible, add an extra day to the move itself to deal with any unforeseen problems. If you have hard deadlines to meet, consider starting earlier. Extra time comes in handy during the planning stages, too – you can always use an extra moment to review your preparations.
Every move is unique, just like every home. Strategies like these are applicable to every moving situation, though. Your New Orleans movers at Nichols will definitely appreciate the time you take to prepare yourself and your household before moving day!
