You finally are hiring movers to help you for your next move instead of doing it yourself and it feels great! But, now that you think about it, you might have a hard time giving up all of your control. Your heart races as you think about three to five perfect strangers going through your personal things. Now you just want to take back all the control and do the whole thing yourself. Except there’s a problem; you can’t lift everything and you don’t have a truck. Luckily there is a way to go through a move with movers and still remain in control while also never having to be embarrassed about your things. Here are some steps to help your movers, like the ones at Easy Movers, Inc., get everything done efficiently.
So you hired a bunch of people to come to your home and take care of the packing; that doesn’t necessarily mean that you want them rifling through your underwear drawer. Just remember that just because you hired them to pack you, it doesn’t mean that you are incapable of packing yourself. If there are things you don’t want seen, pack them before the movers come over. It’s not a big deal. You could even save yourself some money, since most packers are paid by the hour, by packing a majority of your things yourself. This way you could get the whole process done in record time. In fact, movers probably appreciate avoiding awkward situations anyway.
Stay Home, or Go
You know yourself the best and if you can handle staying home, then stay home to organize the move. You may be unable to pack yourself personally, but you might have a specific way you want things packed. You should be there to explain what items are priceless or heirlooms and need to be packed with care. You should also make a list of rules, like all things that are for the kitchen should be packed with like items.
However, if you are the type of person who will actually slow down an already complicated process, then you should probably take a break for an hour or two while they pack your things up. Just take a walk and release your tension about letting go of control.
Have a Bag Packed
If your move requires you to stay a night or two away from your new place, you should have an overnight bag packed. This means you need to pack it before the movers get to your home so that they won’t have to wait for you to go through all of your things before they are boxed up. Think ahead and decide all of the things that you will need while you are on the road. Once the boxes are packed and stacked, you will not be able to get to your things.
