How Move Coordinators Make Your Move Easier
Let’s face it. When you’re moving, you’ve got a lot on your plate. Anything that can make your move easier is a gift. One thing that is sure to make life easier during your move is working with a move coordinator. Move coordinators work with moving companies to oversee all the parts and pieces of your move. They’re like your own personal assistant for pulling up stakes. You’ll find their help invaluable in making your move run smoothly. Move Coordinators Manage Your Moving Schedule Once you book you move, your move coordinator takes over. They are your go-to person and can answer all of your moving questions. There are a lot of things to juggle when you move. And there a lot of things that have to get done at the right time, or you’re in trouble. Your move coordinator will work with you to determine a moving schedule and make sure the right things get done at the right time. They will alert you to important dates along the way, which is very helpful in keeping you on track.Having someone in your corner can make all the difference in keeping you sane during your move. As Thomas B., an Armbruster Mayflower customer, wrote, “all of our moving details were given to us in an easy and timely manner from our move coordinator Dawne………..we had many things to take care of moving our entire family from Ohio to North Carolina. I don’t think we could’ve done it without the help of the professionals at Armbruster and Moving.” Move Coordinators Help Arrange Extra Services Your move coordinator will guide you through scheduling the different services that you may not think of early enough. Instead of spending time looking for references and researching reliable companies, your move coordinator already has people to recommend. This can save you a ton of time, which you need for all of your other moving tasks. Plus, you’ll rest easy knowing your move coordinator will only recommend companies with a proven track record. Some of the services your move coordinator can arrange: Unhooking your washer and dryer You may be planning to take your washer and dryer with you when you move. If you have never moved these appliances before, you may not realize that it’s a thing. In other words, there’s more to it than you may realize. If you’re not a handy person, you’ll be in for some serious frustration trying to figure this one out. Your move coordinator can help you figure out what kind of help you need and schedule it for you. Disassembling furniture Some of your larger items, such as bed frames and dining table, will need to be broken down in order to fit out of your doorways. A good rule of thumb is, if something needed to be assembled when you bought it, it needs to be disassembled before you move it. This is something that you can do yourself if you want to cut down on costs. If you can’t or don’t want to do the physical labor on this, don’t wait until moving day. Having your movers do it will cost you a pretty penny. Your movers are on the clock, and it can add a lot of time to your moving bill. If you need pros to disassemble your furniture, your move coordinator knows people who can do it for you at a lower rate. Specialty items There are some items, such as pianos, grandfather clocks, and other specialty pieces, that require special care and handling. Regular moving companies don’t typically move those types of items. Again, though, your moving coordinator will know someone who offers that service. Move Coordinators Will Remind You of Last-Minute Tasks As we mentioned, a lot of moving tasks have to be timed just right. This is especially true in the days right before you move. Your move coordinator will make sure nothing slips through the cracks. They’ll call to remind you of last-minute details---when it’s time to shut off your refrigerator, for instance. Your move coordinator will make sure you, or a hired pro, have your washer and dryer shut off in time for moving day. (You don’t want your washing machine to be dripping water in transit.) They’ll even help you arrange for your leftover food items be donated on moving day. There are important items you’ll want to keep with you during your move. Your move coordinator will help you prepare a first night checklist to make sure you don’t forget important paperwork and have a few creature comforts for the first night in your new home. Hit a Snag? Move Coordinators Have You Covered With so many things happening at once with moving, sometimes things go wrong. If something does, call your move coordinator. They can help you manage any hiccups that may occur. There might be a delay on your end, a flight that’s cancelled, or closing dates that get bumped out. Your move coordinator knows all the stress that goes along with moving, so they make your problem theirs to solve. Sarah D. worked with one of Armbruster Moving’s move coordinators on their move from Tennessee to Ohio and said, “Our coordinator Lisa at Armbruster Moving always answered our questions in a timely manner. This was greatly appreciated as we were stressed with our timeline during the COVID pandemic and our move.” Moving is by nature just plain stressful. Move coordinators can ease your worry, save you tons of time, and give you support during all aspects of your move.
