Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Should you be moving and engage a professional moving company in Atlanta to assist, there are some things that can be done and various things that it's not necassary to perform to help speed up the job. A smooth move results from everyone working together, and that means that you need to know when to lend a hand and when you ought to get out of the way.

Following are items which your moving company wants for you to know.

1) Alert the Movers of Heavy Objects

This point should be covered when you are getting your moving estimate, and it’s extremely significant, thus it’s worth bringing up. If you have got bulky objects, such as a grand piano, fridge, or even hot tub, which need to be moved, make certain and relay that to your moving company in Atlanta. A number of pieces make need additional preparations, equipment or maybe men to maneuver, hence it is not a good plan to “surprise” your professional mover in Atlanta with unexpected things.

2) Get Ready for the Movers Arrival

Are you living in a private neighborhood or even an apartment building that has an elevator? Can the moving van freely obtain access to your house? Take a minute prior to moving day to consider the specifics of the place that the moving van will park and what the path both to and from the truck looks like. In the event that you need to get a parking or elevator permit from your building management, make sure and do that far ahead of time.

3) Complete Packing Before Moving Day

Should you decide to complete your own packing, make sure that it will be done prior to moving day. That will mean that all the boxes are taped up and adequately labeled. To make tasks proceed even faster, neatly pile all your filled cartons in a centralized location at your residence, for instance the garage or perhaps the living room so that your moving company team can easily load them directly onto the moving van. Pro tip: Don't use masking tape for your cartons. Apply packaging tape instead.

4) Don’t Pack Heavy Items in Large Boxes

There are suggestions for what to place in which size boxes for a reason. Items that are heavy, such as books, will need to go in smaller cartons. Things which are reasonably lightweight, such as pillows and blankets, should go in bigger cartons.

5) Prepare to be Present on Moving Day

You or somebody that you know and put your trust in have to be on hand for the whole moving day if the movers have questions regarding the things they should and shouldn’t be moving. Additionally, a responsible grownup needs to be present to sign all the mover’s papers.

6) Let the Movers Do the Job

You may think that you are helping as you assist to move the fridge, however it is normally better to keep out of the way. You can guide the movers to the right rooms as well as answer questions, but beyond that, let the professional movers in Atlanta accomplish the hard work to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible.
