Four Things to Consider Using Metro Atlanta Movers

Four Things to Consider Using Metro Atlanta Movers

There are tons of moving companies out there, all offering a number of different services and products. If you have moved more than once in your life, you’re privy to the many different things that should be taken into consideration. Some people don’t realize that moving companies have a variant of stipulations that could either save you tons of cash or find your moving bill padded tremendously. Take note of these trivial details as you plan your move across town.

Per Mile, Per Hour, or Per Piece…

Some moving companies, like Lucky Dog movers in metro Atlanta are known as the city’s “apartment movers.” This company charges its customers according to a point system which allows residents to better gauge what they’ll spend. This is great for those who are moving relatively few things to a location that is quite a bit of distance away. In short, there are too many indeterminable circumstances that could increase either mileage or time spent loading/unloading. You’ll need to consider the amount of belongings you need moved, and gauge appropriately. Depending upon your personal inventory and the distance between points, you might find that working on a “point” system is best for your wallet.

While the budget constraints play spoilsport all the time, it is still a better option to choose movers that are up to date on their job, a quality that you can see in storage units and moving containers Edmonton, and are quite good natured without any tantrums.

Apartment Maneuvers

Anyone living in the metro Atlanta area knows that the design of many apartment complexes can create quite a few obstacles for movers. Intricate landscaping, decorative entryways and low-slung ceilings can make manipulating furniture seem virtually impossible. And if you live on an upper level and/or have a great deal of distance from your door to the moving truck, you can expect a slight increase in price with most moving companies. Keeping this in mind, you may decide to invest more in a “Per Mile” move than a “Per Hour” fee.

Organize, Organize, Organize

Your move will also go a lot smoother if you organize the belongings to be moved as neatly as possible beforehand. While this may sound self-explanatory, you must remember that only you know what’s packed away in all the boxes. Labeling fragile and important items is imperative. Movers make mistakes; and it’s easy to discard or damage items inadvertently during all the melee. Clear a path to large pieces of furniture. And try to arrange boxes in one central location. Paying attention to these tiny details just might shave a few dollars off of your moving fees.

Pre-Move “Flush”

The first thing that people usually do when they’re preparing to move is clear out all the clutter and trash. This is typically the most painstaking part of the process; people don’t realize how much they’ve accumulated over the years. Sometimes, there is simply a reluctance to part with old things. And more often than not, people become conflicted about what things to keep, and what things to dispose of. Several weeks (or months) before your move, it’s a good idea to begin “flushing” your place of unwanted items.

In some cases, people who are moving have prior access to their new living quarters well in advance. If this is the case, it would behoove you to also flush out all your staples and “soft” items. Seasonal clothes, extra linens, houseplants, artwork-virtually anything that can be packed in cars should be ferreted out first. These are often the items that usually end up taking up extra space because they’re thought of last. Removing them first isn’t necessary. But doing so will keep you from forgetting them, and your move will feel seamless.
