Research says that the average person will move a total of 12 times in their lifetime. Therefore moving is an inevitable task for everyone, so just like anything else we repeat in life, we should strive to get better on every attempt, and we would like to help you do just that. See List Below.
We have put together some very useful tips that will save you tons of money on your next moving project whether that is with us here at PittMovers or one of our competitors.
Tip #1: Disassemble and reassemble any large furniture items that you are able to on your own. This will save hours of tedious labor charges on your final bill. Now, not everyone is handy, but if you are that handy person that everyone calls when things break, this tip is for you!
Tip #2: Consolidate your boxes to one central location. Move all of you boxes in to one room so that the movers don't have to go on a scavenger hunt searching for boxes through the home . This is another tedious labor task that can cost you a few extra hundred dollars on your final bill for services.
Tip #3: Expose all items that you would like the movers to take. If your movers have already started loading your moving truck and get surprised with a last minute piece of furniture, it could require a significant portion of the truck to be reloaded. This could be a moving nightmare , this could easily be the cause of at least an hour of additional charges.
Tip #4: Have all items packed and ready to GO! This may seem pretty obvious or redundant but believe it or not, over half of our clients are still packing things on the day of their move. And this could lead to the same issue listed above in Tip #3.
To sum it all up, preparation is key, especially when using hourly moving labor! The more prepared you are for your move, the more money you will SAVE!!
