Has it been awhile since your last move? If you are unfamiliar with the process, it might be difficult to know what you need to do to help your professional local movers out. Here are two things you should do to make things easier for your moving company, and why it might make a difference on moving day:
1: Understand Your Inventory
A few weeks before the big day, your moving company will call you to discuss the items that you will be moving. Although you might be tempted to hurry through the phone call, it is crucial that you give your moving company an accurate idea of what you have. As soon as you find out that you will be moving and that you plan to use a company to help you, go through your home to take notes about your inventory. Here are a few things to pay attention to:
By communicating effectively, you can help movers to know what to expect, which will streamline your move.
2: Clear A Path
Your movers will do everything they can to leave your home and personal belongings in pristine condition. Unfortunately, accomplishing that task might be a tall order if you haven't cleared a path into and out of your house. To make your moving team's job a little easier, take care of these things before your moving day:
When movers don't have to deal with obstacles in their path, they can work quickly without worrying about creating collateral damage.
Taking the time to prepare for your move might make things a lot easier for your moving company, and help you to keep your property in perfect shape.Share

Although I've never worked professionally in the real estate business, I sure know my way around it. How, do you ask? Well, I have simply rented a lot of different places and worked with a lot of different landlords and real estate agents. In the past 7 years I've lived in 11 different houses or apartments, none of them my own. In finding those 11, I have looked at literally hundreds of apartments. I used to hate house hunting, but now it's kind of fun. You just need to know what you want and the right questions to ask. Hopefully this blog can help you learn some of the tricks of the trade from another renter like yourself.
