Planning a Last-Minute Move to Killeen Over the Late Summer Rush

Packing and MovingBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

When planning a move, you realize that you must have a specific amount of time to plan for packing, scheduling time with the moving company in Killeen, and your journey with the moving truck. Most of us have many months of advance warning to organize their move and properly arrange the moving services they want. But occasionally, a move occurs for us abruptly. Perhaps you are transferred to a brand new position and a totally new location with your workplace, perhaps there's a family emergency situation and you must cross the state in a rush. And regrettably, these abrupt moving plans from time to time take place smack-dab during the summer moving season rush when moving companies close to their most busy levels and most booked.

The good thing is that you aren't stuck being forced to Do-it-yourself the entire move using a rented moving van. You can still get the professional moving company services you could usually count on with the proper tactics along with a little adaptability. Today, we're here to give a couple of helpful pointers on completing a last-minute move to Killeen regardless of whether it happens during the end of summer rush.

Accomplish the Majority of Your Packing DIY

What actually matters for most people is having the cartons packed on the truck, the hefty furniture safely moved, and the large moving truck handled by knowledgeable professional movers. However what about packing? Packing can be very time intensive, so if you are thinking of a DIY pack job, here are a few things to take into account.

You're more than capable of folding your closet into boxes as well as hanging bags. With a few internet tutorials, you can actually learn how to utilize packing paper and dish packing grids to ensure your dishes, cookware, and collectors items are securely packed. Certainly, you'll be able to pack up most of the not-so-delicate stuff within your closets and you may even be able to recruit pals, neighbors, or colleagues to make it happen quicker should you be prepared to reimburse them in pizza.

Even though you may decide to not have a professional moving company in Killeen help you pack, they can assist you to equip yourself to pack skillfully using the boxes, packing materials, furniture pads, and dish grids you need to do it right. And, should you get some of the packing concluded and recognize that you're in over your head, don't be afraid to pick up the phone and contact your local moving company to ask for help.

Be Available to Move on Weekdays

The weekend is the highest demand time for moving companies no matter what time of year it is. It could possibly truly not be possible to locate a summer time weekend which is not scheduled. But weekdays are different. Due to the fact significantly fewer people are accessible to oversee the moving process on mondays to fridays, movers frequently have these days, or even available hours during weekdays, open and readily available for last-minute customers who failed to book a weekend many months in advance.

For many individuals who have to move all of a sudden, weekdays tend to be less of a concern because your normal schedule and plans have already been turned on their head. When your employer is moving you, you may be in a position to ask for a couple of additional paid days off to deal with the unanticipated move. Should you be switching jobs, you may have the time at home on weekdays to deal with this scheduling quirk.

And if you simply can't make yourself available on weekdays, you may be able to talk with a friend or neighbor who is around who could watch over the move for you as you are on the job.

Work with Your Movers and Seek out Advice

Lastly, you shouldn't be shy to ask your moving company for added tips. Professional movers in Killeen understand much better than other people what it is like to deal with a rushed moving job and should be very happy to offer a handful of tips. Speak with your movers concerning your mutual timetables to choose the correct days where both you and they are available and consider any recommendations they provide regarding how to make the schedule work.

Your movers could even have beneficial advice and knowledgeable suggestions from many years of know-how concerning how to pack up faster, how to keep your treasured things safe while hurrying, and what to do regarding un-movable such things as indoor plants, pets, or your chemistry set collection.


Moving at the last second, even throughout summer time moving rush, doesn't need to mean doing it all oneself.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
