Things can go wrong when Moving
There is any array of problems that can go wrong when it comes to the week of or even the day of moving. To prepare for this, we need to be prepared at all times for as many of the problems that can arise. The best way to make sure you’re prepared for most of these problems are not doing the process alone. Most of the appeal that happens from having a great moving company working with you is that you won’t have to be alone throughout this journey.

IF you want to have a team of experienced and expert movers by your side helping you out along the way, we are the people to call.
Part of our effort to promote good faith between our customers is maintaining healthy blogs like these that outline all the potential problems you could have on the day of your move and how to prepare for them. Enjoy.
On-Hand Cash Problems
On-Hand Cash means having a bunch of money in your pocket. As much as everyone loves using credit cards and apps like Venmo, square, and PayPal are making it easier for people to transfer money on a dime, it’s always important to remember that cash is still king.
Packing and Moving Delays – We are only human, While we would all love it if we can finish any moving service in a matter of minutes, it’s never that simple. Delays, stalls, and setbacks can often time lead you to expand your moving time much longer than you would have initially wanted it to be. This is why you need to be able to rent a motel and other alternative services easily and quickly.
Tolls – Every single person in the world forgets about tolls. AS much as we would like to shoe away a couple of dozen quarters just to be safe, it’s never that simple. This is why you should always keep a healthy amount of quarters and dollars on the day of the move just to be safe about everything.
Your vehicle is important. There’s no understating that. If you don’t have a car or truck, there’s just not going to be any moving going on that day. So you need to treat your vehicle more importantly than people who are helping you that day. Because while some people can get their feelings hurt, cars don’t have feelings and they can stop quicker than you think and leave you stranded.
Knowing the Curb Weight – Cars have a specific weight that they are recommended for being able to carry stuff. Stay as far away from that number as you feel comfortable doing. If you have an SUV or a large truck, odds are you won’t need to worry about this, but there are a lot of people who will ‘load up the car’ and risk breaking the car down mid transit.
Towing Company – If you are leasing/financing a car through a place like CarMax, then you should have this bit covered, if not check the stipulations of your financing services. Otherwise, we highly recommend having an AAA membership. Not only is it a great investment for yourself personally, but it’s also a great way to help out a friend who’s in a bind. If you’re moving with a group of friends and you don’t have some towing company set in the store, you’re setting yourself up for potential disaster.
Pre-Move Check-up – Take your car to a mechanic you trust. Make sure your fluid levels are good, make sure your tires are safe and don’t have any problems and do a general maintenance check to ensure your car is in the best shape that it needs to be.
We need them, but they can be burdensome at times. As much fun as it is getting your friends together for a move, there are some intrinsic problems with managing many people and trying to equally disperse work when everyone has different builds and attitudes about the move. This section is to help you navigate these problems.
Moving Delays – If someone is late if someone is tired and wants to rest for a moment. These can cause big delays in your move. To prepare for this, it’s important to try and schedule out times.
Frequent Stops – When you are finally moving all of these people through transits, you need to navigate and mitigate the stops being taken.
Maximizing Time Management – Similar to scheduling, you want to make the most out of the time you have with your movers. That means moving quickly and consistently. Manage rest times for people well and always ensure you have them well rested and happy and an upbeat mood.
Final Moving Problems
You’re Almost there. Once you’ve begun driving, everything gets to be a little bit easier. We’re all a little bit closer to the end. When these moments happen, you need to prepare for two more obstacles in the way of a perfect move: Exhaustion and that final Dinner.
Exhaustion – People are going to be exhausted and irate. If you can prepare by having some energy drinks or sports drinks around to keep people hydrated and healthy, it’s a great way to keep that unpacking process moving perfectly. If you’re a beer and pizza crowd, then you might want to hold off on that for just a little bit longer.
Final Dinner – If you park the vehicle to unload at 6 P.M. Try to have the pizzas ready and at your location, by 7 P.M. You’re not trying to have everyone set up your home. Just unload the truck so that you can return it that night or just get it off everyone’s hands as fast as possible. Waiting around for pizza will sometimes discourage people from sticking around, and you want to be grateful and on top of thanking your friends.
