A Move Coordinator--Taking the Stress Out of Your Move to Killeen

Family Moving to a New HomeFor someone considering a long-distance move, the particulars of the move itself are just staggering—going through and boxing up everything you own, determining who's doing your packing, scheduling trucks, selling your old house and buying a new one--these are just a few of the items that induce sleepless nights if you have a For Sale sign in your yard. And once you do drift off to sleep, you are having bad dreams about a crude moving crew loading your entire life into a rickety moving van with dubious mud flaps-so being awake is probably superior to that scenario.

Calm down. When you choose the right moving company, you do not need to worry about the details --you'll have a move coordinator to assist you every moment of your move to Killeen, step by step, and be your move manager throughout--from deciding how much packing material you will need to making sure the swing set is set up at your new home. With a move coordinator in your corner, you will never panic about your move.

Here are some items your move coordinator will do for you, beginning with helping the account manager with your quote.

Estimate Time, Trucks, and Materials

No matter if you're packing yourself or having the moving company send a crew to handle it, you'll require supplies--boxes, tape, paper, and bubble wrap or peanuts. Your account manager--someone with an average of a decade in the moving industry--will arrive at your house, and walk through with you to calculate not only how many trucks you'll need, but can estimate how many boxes--and what sizes—you will need for each room. If you choose to pack yourself, they will provide you suggestions on how to pack the boxes so they're not too heavy. Once you have gone through the entire residence—main floor, basement, attics, garage—you will get an idea of the time and materials required to get you moving. If you've got off-site storage, make sure and mention that, too--the last thing you want is to neglect to mention you've got a 10 X 20 storage unit that is packed full.

Plan for Disassembly and Assembly

A professional moving company only enlists top-quality, experienced movers. The guys that report to your house on moving day are background checked, insured, uniformed, and trained. Since your move coordinator is aware of what needs to be disassembled and then reassembled, your crew will have the tools and expertise to handle the project--from a grand piano to a washing machine, you can be confident that the job will be done correctly. If you change your mind about anything (donating the refrigerator or deciding to take the big grill after all), simply give your move coordinator a call and it's handled.

Manage Vehicle Transport

Interstate moves usually involve moving your cars, boats, and motorcycles. Move coordinators can not only assist with the technicalities of relocating your wheeled things, but can advise you on registering and tagging them if you are going to a new state or country.

Storage in Killeen

Sometimes your new home is still being built, or you're downsizing and not sure what you'll want to use, or you're doing some renovating and not all the way finished when you move. Your move coordinator arranges for short-term storage while you are waiting to finish moving in. Your coordinator knows how to pack for storage, based on your estimated time you will need it. Your boxes are packed and grouped by destination--the things going to your house will be separate from the boxes and furniture going into storage. When you're ready to have those belongings delivered, just call your move coordinator and the trucks and movers will be scheduled right away.
