Some of you wonderful people have never used a moving company before or have. This informative piece of writing is to refresh the mind to prepare for that moving company and to have 80 percent increase chance of having a successful moving day! We made this short and simple so tune in:
The Economic Approach
If you already live in NYC and just need a few movers to move you about 10 minutes from where you live, this is probably for you! Grab your own truck and request a quote for what we call Rent-A-Mover!(Click here).
The pros about the rent a mover is that your only paying for laborers and probably going to 30 percent cheaper than a hourly quote price.
The cons about rent a mover is that acquiring that equipment needed to transport your items could be very risky. At the end of each month companies like uhual, Penske, or budget are usually booked to were there aren’t any trucks.
Result is if you are using this method make sure you book a truck at least 2 weeks in advance!
Buying supplies from commercial stores(Home Depot, uhual, or at a local storage unit) can be very expensive. Request moving supplies from your mover is way more inexpensive and plus they can deliver it for you. Try bringing 20 boxes and bunch supplies on the train folks, that is not fun. Medina Moving(Click here) provides free delivery for supplies before your move or after!
If you live on a 6th floor walk up and your mover is charging you hourly, your best bet is to bring whatever you can bring down yourself. This saves time, money , and is a very nice workout! Forget about cardio you will burn at least 200 calories. But in all seriousness bring bags and smaller items downstairs.
Tedious small miscellaneous items should be put in boxes. It makes everything much more compact and easy to keep track of. Try to use less bags and more boxes/bins.
If you have a lot of clothes or just like to keep your clothes organized, invest into an actual wardrobe rack. Moving wardrobes sometimes can only hold a certain amount of items and usually easy to break. Your clothes on the hangar will more than likely not stay in place. Purchase a wardrobe from Walmart(Click here) This will keep your clothes safe and secure, as well keep the movers job easy.
We suggest to also to buy bins for your shoes/sneakers. This keeps your shoes organized and safe as well.
When it comes to booking a move make sure you book as soon as possible. Moving prices are just like airline or hotel prices, they increase due to timing and volume.
This is more or less a awareness tip, Pet owners please make arrangements for animals. There a lot of people who are allergic to certain animals. Medina moving although is very pet friendly. But there is a lot of animal fees at other companies. Also please clean any pet hair as much as possible, this is just a courteous tip.
Parking can be a pain for moving trucks and could cause a delay in your move. On your moving day you should get up super early and find a spot for your movers. Even if you wait about 30 minutes while your movers are on the way and flag down a park spot.
Keep in mind to also make enough space for movers to prepare and wrap items. This is more or less for safety reasons and for the movers to complete there job with enough space. We all know NYC has limited amount space in apartments , imagine 3 extra people In your home trying to move around!
