Even though you might be feeling the anxiety of being somewhere on the various stages of finding a place to live – with the scale of stress-dependent on whether you’re renting or buying – the thing that is most irksome, annoying, and has the greatest potential to cause upset is the actual moving process. Indeed, moving to a new house is considered one of life’s most stressful events. For a move that is as pain-free as possible, engage professional and reliable movers in Los Angeles.
What Movers in Los Angeles Can Do For You
The best movers in Los Angeles provide a wide range of services to make moving day easier and more efficient and therefore less stressful. There are removal companies that specialize in home moves and those that concentrate on business relocations, but there are also firms like Town Moving who do both. A good removals firm has the staff, equipment, skills, and knowledge to undertake a move from start to finish. That includes everything from packing up your old home to placing boxes and furniture in the right rooms in your new home. Of course, moving is not cheap, so it pays to know something about the services so you can request. Then, you can decide which ones will most ease the burden on you, budget depending.
Packing and Unpacking
This is, of course, a task you can undertake yourself but it can be a slog, especially if you have full-time employment. You either have to take time off work or begin packing weeks in advance, tackling it bit by bit. By engaging a moving company to undertake the packing, then the job is completed in far less time with the least disruption. The Packers will be efficient because they know how to best pack all types of items, making sure to keep things safe and secure while making the most of the space in the packing boxes. Speaking of which …
Unless you’re lucky to be able to source boxes and crates from a local supermarket or family and friends, you will need to find a lot of boxes to pack up the average family home. If you choose the packing option with a removals company, they will provide the materials – boxes, tea chests, crates, tape, bubble wrap, etc. Some companies go a little bit further, providing items such as mattress bags, box labels, and marker pens. Trained movers are also able to pack your possessions in as few boxes as possible. If you choose to pack yourself, your removals firm will most probably sell the packing materials you need.
Handling With Care
You work hard and are proud of your possessions so, naturally, you are going to be concerned about your new 60 inches Smart TV or the 200-year-old china passed down from Aunt Maisie. Trained packers know how to handle all of these items correctly. They work to ensure that your furniture doesn’t get bashed and dented. This way, your china, and glassware don’t get chipped.
You might be concerned about certain items you have in your home. Perhaps you have some fine antiques, a pool table or piano. Check with your chosen moving company for experience in handling such items. Pianos are particularly problematic, so your best option is a company who offers a piano removal service rather than one who says “yes, we’ve moved a piano before”.
In regards to your valuable possessions, it’s important to consider the insurance. Check your movers to make sure that they are insured. It is also sensible to check what you have with your own home insurance. Accidents can happen. Things do go wrong. The only peace of mind you have to reduce the stress and worry of what might happen during a move, the only method by which you can mitigate the potential loss or damage is insurance.
Unpacking at Your New Abode
Unpacking in terms of removal firms is a bit of a misnomer as this is not part of their usual service menu. Putting things in their new, proper places in your home is up to you. Where the moving company will help is by setting your items down in the room that you tell them to. They can do this as they unload them from the truck. You can either be at the new house to supervise or you can very clearly mark on the boxes. You can provide some kind of instruction/plan.
By taking care of the physical aspects of your move, your chosen removal company greatly reduces your burden. Planning your move as far in advance of your moving date as possible enables you to look for a company you can trust and rely on. Having time on your side will help things go more smoothly. Understand all the services your removal company offers, as there may be useful options such as storage or a furniture disassembly service.
