A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Little Rock

Family Moving to a New HomeFor someone planning a long-distance move, the logistics of the move itself are just overwhelming—sorting through and packing up all your possessions, figuring out who's doing your packing, scheduling moving trucks, selling your old house and securing a new home--these are just a few of the tasks that cause sleepless nights if you've got a For Sale sign in your front yard. And once you do fall off to sleep, you're having bad dreams about a scrappy moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety truck with dubious mud flaps-so staying awake is actually preferred to that scenario.

Relax. When you choose the right moving company, you don't have to stress about the minutiae --you'll have a move coordinator to guide you every moment of your move to Little Rock, step by step, and act as your point person throughout--from deciding how many boxes you will need to ensuring the swing set is set up at your new residence. With a move coordinator in your corner, you'll never panic about your move.

Here are some tasks your move coordinator will help you with, beginning with assisting the account manager with your moving estimate.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

Regardless if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a team to handle it, you will require supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will come to your house, and walk through with you to figure out not only how many trucks you'll need, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you'll require for every room. If you elect to pack yourself, they will give you tips on how to fill the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you've gone through the entire residence—living area, basement, attics, garage—you'll have an idea of the time and materials needed to get you moving. If you have belongings in a mini-storage, be sure and tell your account manager, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you have a 10 X 20 storage locker that is filled to the brim.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only employs top-quality, experienced movers. The teams that come to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and experienced. Since your move coordinator knows what needs to be taken apart and then put back together, your crew will have the tools and expertise to tackle the job--from a grandfather clock to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done right. If you change your mind about something (donating the pool table or deciding to take the big sofa after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it is handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Nationwide moves usually mean moving your automobiles, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only aid with the specifics of relocating your wheeled things, but can advise you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.

Storage in Little Rock

Sometimes your new home is not quite ready, or you're redecorating and not sure what you will wind up keeping, or you are doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you wait to finish moving in. Your coordinator is knowledgeable on how to pack for storage, based on the timeframe for which you'll need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and other belongings being put into storage. When you're ready to have those belongings delivered, just notify your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
