Moving Services: FAQs
There are numerous ways to move, but hiring a professional mover is one of the best decisions you can make when moving from Point A to Point B, especially if Point B is across the border or overseas. Movers have the experience and equipment you require to get your belongings to your destination as safely and as efficiently as possible.
Professional movers tackle all the logistics for you when you move, with guarantees you peace of mind. Nothing gets left behind when they have all the proper equipment and experience to transport your belongings safely. Movers are also insured, so your belongings will still have protection if something happens.
Plus, nothing beats the convenience of a moving company providing door-to-door, hassle-free service. You don’t have to worry about moving around heavy items or renting a truck.
Depending on the service that you choose, since Atlas offers multiple to meet your budget needs, you can expect service that’s either door-to-door or heavy assistance with your own DIY move. Full-service movies can do everything from supplying all packing materials and supplies, like bubble wrap, packing tape, paper, etc., packing up your belongings – including ensuring that fragile and valuable items are expertly and securely packed away, disassembly of furniture, loading, and unloading of trucks, transport of belongings, unpacking, and the disposal of packing materials. This is the great advantage of using a moving company: having the convenience of enlisting a company to do all the above tasks for you.
The fuller the service you hire the company for, the more it will cost. At the same time, packing and moving yourself can take days or even weeks to accomplish fully. Hiring movers will ensure a more accurate set timetable.
While a full moving service should handle most of the tasks you would otherwise be saddled with during a DIY move, you can do a few things to prepare for professional movers.
After all, the better prepared you are, the smoother and faster the move will go. Compile a detailed moving inventory and take close-up photos of the items you have for moving to assess for any potential damages or losses during transit. Ensure all belongings that are not to be loaded on the moving truck are set aside. Reserve a parking space for the moving truck, plus an elevator (if applicable) for the time of your move.
Finally, clear the way of obstacles (including any nuisance pets!) and take measures to protect your property from potential damages. Make sure you have organized the items you want to relocate to your new home properly and put aside those that you won’t move to a separate spot. Determine what you’ll do with the non-moving items, whether that’s giving them away, selling them, disposing of them, or taking them on the plane/ferry with you.
Most moving companies will have limitations when it comes to moving anything flammable or potentially explosive. The same applies to any hazardous materials, like paints, aerosols, pesticides, motor oil, batteries, fertilizer, and acids. Household cleaning products may also need to stay behind. Also, many moving companies will not pack any perishables, such as any form of food or drink, whether fresh, dry, or frozen.
It depends on the design of your dresser. If your dresser is a ready-to-assemble design, then it’s likelier to give way during a move, so you should consider packing them separately. If your drawers are of a sturdier design and you are tight on space or short on moving boxes, then you can leave your clothes in the drawers. Ask your mover what they would prefer.
