While moving to a new home is exciting, it can also be overwhelming. At A-1 Pioneer Moving & Storage, we’re well aware of the feelings our clients are going through, and we do everything in our power to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible. Throughout the process, we communicate with every client so there are no surprises. There are, however, specific things every family should keep in mind during any type of residential moving in Utah.
Planning Ahead Is Important
By contacting our moving experts as soon as possible, families contemplating a move will have sufficient time to carefully plan and prepare for any anticipated issues. Timelines can be created to assist families as they make a plan and to address all the important matters that go along with the moving process. Once dates for moving are established, dealing with utility transfers, forwarding mail, and other details can be taken care of in a timely manner.
During the planning process, the A-1 Pioneer Moving & Storage team will work closely with clients to better determine what their exact moving needs will be. Planning ahead will make it possible to determine what will be moved & the amount of the help that will be needed, which will minimize cost. There are many ways to make a move more affordable, and we’re happy to work with clients to develop a plan of action that best suits their individual needs.
Timing Is Crucial
When planning a move, remember that timing is critical. Most people move during the warmer months, making it harder to schedule a move on short notice. To avoid scheduling issues during our peak season, try to schedule your move several 2-4 weeks in advance. Although it is easier to schedule a move outside of our busy season, keep in mind weather conditions can interfere with long-distance moves to colder portions of the country. It’s important to discuss all the issues with our team if there is flexibility in the moving times.
Start Packing Early
If you’re anticipating moving in the coming months, it’s important to evaluate what will be moved and what will be left behind. Since the volume of belongings to be moved impacts the total cost, disposing of non-essential items rather than moving them will reduce the overall cost. Our experts will provide advice whenever possible to help during the packing process.
We encourage clients doing their own packing to standardize the box sizes to streamline the process. Standardized sizing eliminates wasted space in the moving trucks, which saves money for customers and reduces the chance of damage occurring. Of course, every box should be carefully labeled to make sure it is handled properly during the move and is delivered to the right space in the new home.
In addition, A-1 Pioneer Moving & Storage offers full packing services. Our experts know how to properly pack items to eliminate the chance of damage occurring. Whether it’s fine china or valuable works of art, our skilled team has the training and equipment necessary to safely and efficiently pack the items. Of course, we’re also available for clients needing help unpacking at the new location.
We Care About Your Home
One of the complaints homeowners frequently have about movers is carelessness that leads to damaging walls, floor coverings, or doors during a move. We take extra precautions to make sure the home you’re leaving and the one you’re moving to is protected during the move. If you ever have concerns, please feel free to discuss them with our team. We want to make sure our clients are well taken care of.
