If you’re buying a new home in Lake City or any of the surrounding communities, you may be considering hiring professional movers – and for most people, that’s a great idea. Many professional movers can pack, load the truck, and even store items for you, which can lift a tremendous amount of stress from your shoulders.
But there are things you can do to make the move even easier.
How to Make Your Move (With Professional Movers) Easier
First things first: Find a moving carrier that offers insurance. There are two basic types of moving insurance: by-the-pound and comprehensive. While by-the-pound insurance is usually cheaper, it may not cover enough for your needs. Comprehensive usually covers all damage and losses, but read the fine print before you purchase it!
Tip #1: Schedule Ahead
Schedule your moving date as far ahead as you can. That way, you’ll be sure to lock in the date you want.
Tip #2: Know What the Movers Can Do
Most moving companies have lists of things they can’t move, such as chemicals, paints and medications. You’ll also want to set aside your own important documents, pictures and other items so you can move them yourself.
Tip #3: Tip Your Movers
While tipping isn’t mandatory, it’s always nice (and appreciated). The rule of thumb is to tip $20 per mover for a full day’s work.
