Last Minute Movers
Moving at the last minute? An unforeseen move has just fallen on you? Okay first of all, breathe; this is not a good time to pass out! Then, stop tearing your hair out and freaking out; that won’t help you either.
Depending on whether it is a short or long distance move, you need to hire a moverASAP. Here the cost benefit is that you don’t have too much time on your hands to handle all of this alone, so it is best that you hire a full service mover. Check around for recommendations from people you know. This will make your hiring quicker and more reliable.
If you have time to shop for several moving estimates - do it. Get potential movers to
inspect your goods as soon as possible. But often, urgent moves leave no such time for collecting quotes. Most last minute movers offer express moving packages, they will most probably charge you more than a regular mover due to the short notice factor. This is a bullet you will simply have to bite hard on!
If your budget enables you to hire full service movers that also conduct last minute moves - go for it. Having the packing handled by the movers will leave you time to sort out the bureaucratic issues entailed in the move.
Otherwise, simply pack and clean simultaneously.
Your moving company will haul your goods to your final destination, and full service movers will also unpack for you. Just before you leave, scan all the rooms and check if you have left anything behind. If this is an emergency move, chances are that you won’t get a chance to come back if you have left something, so be sure!
