At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®/INTERNATIONAL, Inc., we are experts when it comes to packing and moving. While most people only move a few times, we do it every day. A team of movers will provide expertise and professionalism, while bringing you peace of mind during a stressful time.
Acquiring a Moving Estimate
Developing an estimate is an important part of the moving process. Be sure to tell the customer service representative everything you need moved, including items in your attic, storage unit or shed.
You cannot offer up too much information. Tell them if your furniture is unusually large or heavy, especially if items weigh more than 350 lbs. That means they may send three movers instead of the traditional two. Let them know if you have a small entrance, narrow stairways or halls. The more information you offer, the more prepared the movers will be – making the move more efficient and stress-free.
Protecting Your Items
Upon arrival, the movers will walk through the home with you, spending time inspecting and documenting any damages. This process can be expedited if you look over your items ahead of time to get an idea of what should be noted.
The movers will carefully wrap your furniture with pads and stretch wrap to protect it during the move. They will also cover all banisters and doors to protect the entrances and exits. You can ask the movers to put down floor coverings to keep your carpets and hard floors clean and blemish-free.
Once the movers begin to load the truck, you are welcome to bring items to a central location like a living room or garage. This will speed up the loading process saving you time and money. However, you are not required to do so.
Communicating with the Movers
You can ask the driver to share his or her cellphone number with you, so you can reach the crew at any time during transit. Having a direct contact will provide further peace of mind. You can also call the office at any time for updates and to answer questions. The movers will do everything they can to keep things moving smoothly.
Make sure you are available while the movers are unloading the truck so you can tell them where you would like your furniture. The movers will also stay and rearrange furniture to your liking. The crew will place all boxes in the appropriate rooms and, upon request, will put together beds, dressers and other items that require minor reassembly. Before you know it, your move will be completed and you will continue to enjoy peace of mind as you settle in to your new home.
