5 Mistakes to Avoid When Moving In and Out of a Storage Space or Home
Mistake 1: Not Knowing the Type of Moving Vehicle.
Make sure to contact your moving company and ask what type of moving vehicle they will be using. Moving Companies may use anything from trailers to 18-wheelers and you won’t know until you ask. A+ Moving and Storage uses 18-wheelers so that you have an abundance of room for your large or small move. Call us for dimensions!
Mistake 2: Not Thinking About Where the Moving Truck Will Park.
Now that you know the moving company’s vehicle type, make sure that you think ahead of where the truck will be parking when loading or unloading. Parking can be tight at apartment complexes or in large cities. Make sure to plan ahead so that it doesn’t cause a headache on your moving day.
Mistake 3: Not Giving the Movers Unloading Directions.
Our movers at A+ Moving and Storage are expert unloaders, but you’re the boss on moving day. As with any moving company, it’s best to let movers know how you want things arranged in the unit before unloading begins. Need us to move something around once places? Speak up! This step may take some extra thought and planning prior to your move. Make sure to make a list or even a layout to give to your movers to make the day go smoothly!
Mistake 4: Not Knowing How Much Space You Need for Your Things.
When it comes to storage space, it can be difficult to guess exactly how much space you need. If your belongings already are organized and boxed up, this is easier to determine. But when in doubt, get advice from the A+ Moving and Storage!
Mistake 5: Visiting the Storage Facility When Everyone Else Is There.
It is typical to move in or out of a storage unit on the weekends or after 5 during the work week. Think about scheduling a visit or move during work hours Monday-Friday to reduce wait!
