There are so many companies that you can utilize during a moving process, but these 4 people to hire stand out to me. Some are not specific (like a babysitter), but I really think that if you utilize and find these 4 people to help you during a move, it will make your life so much easier. Here are 4 companies to utilize during your move:
A Fantastic Moving Company
A moving company is essential, but do not just choose any company. You need a company that is professional, experienced, and provides great customer service. You are in luck because I know of a great one that is based out of the Texas area and they are Our Truck Moving. They are a Garland TX commercial moving company, residential moving company, and they even offer labor-only and packing services.
Whether you need their moving services for a large residential move or just need extra labor help, you can rely on them for the job, and they will get it done quickly, without the added stress on your plate. They give so much valuable information, as well! For example, here are a few things they said you should do if you are moving from/to an apartment:
- Measure! Make sure the front door, apartment door, inside doors, and all relevant hallways can accommodate the moving of your furniture.
- Don’t wait until the last minute to pack, do a little each day, starting with art, books and movies, and any off-season items.
- Label boxes with the room they’re going to, that way, you’ll save time and frustration as you start unpacking.
- Pack a suitcase with essentials, including important papers, which you can access immediately, so you’re not hunting around for toothpaste.
You know what is not on that list? Hiring Our Truck Moving! It should be included in that list because it is THAT important, in my opinion. Especially f you are wanting a smooth and stress-free move. This family-owned and operated moving company started in 2015, with your satisfaction in mind. They make sure that their customers are happy every step of the way. They are top-rated and they work all over the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex area to provide cost effective moving solutions.
Some of the areas Our Truck Moving serve are Dallas, Rockwall, Mesquite, Plano, Garland, Carrollton, Allen, Frisco, Little Elm, Wylie, Duncanville, Lancaster, and more. Last but not least, I think this (found on their website) really makes them stand out: “We are committed to excellence in every aspect of our business. We uphold a standard of integrity bound by fairness, honesty, and personal responsibility. Our distinction is the quality of service we bring to our customers. Accurate knowledge of our trade combined with ability is what makes us true professionals.”
If there are no friends or family nearby, hiring a babysitter to come over and watch your younger children during your move will enable you to focus on other things. Like last-minute packing, overseeing the movers, and cleaning. But sometimes the best thing for children, especially younger ones, is to get them out of the house completely.
Ask nearby relatives to take the kids to a park if the weather is nice or stay in and watch movies if it’s colder. If your children have close friends in the neighborhood that they will be leaving behind, ask the parents if they would mind watching them while you move house. Most neighbors are happy to be of assistance when you are moving. This will give your kids a chance to say goodbye and play with their friends one more time.
The reason why I included a babysitter in a post about companies is the fact that if you are moving to a new area, it’s hard to trust one individual, so I always recommend finding a babysitting company that vets their sitters ahead of time.
An Organizational Company
Who wants to move into an unorganized home? Not me! Hire an organizational company that can help you get started on the right foot. This way, when you need to find something, you won’t have to search for it for hours and waste time. An organizational company can help you so much when you are moving into a new home!
Once again, is this specifically a company? No. But, wine is always helpful during a move – or any other stressful situation! When it’s all said and done, order a box of wine from your favorite winery. Once everything is clean, moved in, and ready to go, sit down with your loved ones and sip a glass of wine (maybe paired with a charcuterie board?!) to celebrate and unwind.
