Preparing to Move
What day is best to move?
Because unexpected events such as closing a house or completing a construction can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, we recommend that you do not schedule your move for the same day. Save yourself the stress of replanning and schedule your move date for several days after your closing deadline.
When is the most suitable time to schedule my move?
It is recommended that you plan your move as early as possible. The farther you can plan your move, the better you can choose the date and time that suits you best. As a rule, you should contact us no later than two weeks before the desired collection date.
Demand for moving services is usually lowest at mid-month and mid-week in particular. If your schedule allows you to move on one of these days, many movers offer the cheapest rates in these times.
I want to do a few packing and moving before the movers arrive – What areas would be most helpful?
Focus only packing instead of moving. Smaller items and moving boxes can be transported very quickly by professional movers. Do not waste time trying to move these items yourself. Instead, focus on the packing boxes so that you are 100% ready when the movers arrive.
There are some of my items that won’t fit in my new home. Can I store them?
Of course, Yes! UsDirectMovers offers not only high-quality moving services but also full-service storage service. If your items do not fit into your new home, but you only live there for a limited time and are planning to move to a larger house, using our storerooms is a convenient and secure option.
How do I ensure that my items end up in the right room during the move?
Choose a simple labeling system (e.g., MBR for the master bedroom) and make sure all your boxes are clearly marked. The boxes must be labeled above and on all three sides. Your mover at the destination will work closely with you to make sure everything ends where it’s supposed to be.
Can I leave my cloth in my dresser drawers when I move?
In general, it is okay to leave clothes in the dresser drawers during the move.
How do I prepare my appliances for the move?
You should make sure your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washer, and dryer are empty. Also, movers are not trained, plumbers, or electricians. You must take the necessary precautions to have the specialist disconnect your washing machine, lights, chandeliers, and refrigerator from the mains or water connection.
Will you move my plants?
These items can be moved in local movements if they are properly packed and prepared. However, we cannot guarantee the safe transport of live plants that can be traumatized by extreme movements or temperatures in the moving truck. We cannot transport live plants in long-distance.
Are there any items that you won’t move?
UsDirectMovers, as well as all licensed movers, will not move dangerous or combustible elements such as propane tanks, firearms, paints, and aerosols, as these elements may explode or swell due to the temperature in the truck.
