How Far In Advance Should I Schedule My Move?
We recommend scheduling your move as far in advance as you can. The farther out you can plan your move, the greater the availability you will have in choosing a date and time that is convenient for you. Though the earlier the better is certainly best, we realize advance planning is not always possible; we do ask, if at all possible, for a minimum of four days before the move.
What day of the week/date is best for a move?
Because complex events, such as a home closure or completion of construction, can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, we don’t recommend scheduling your move for the same day. Save yourself the stress of rescheduling and plan your move date for several days after your closing date.
Demand for moving services is generally at its lowest during the middle of the month and, in particular, the middle of the week. If your schedule allows for a move on one of these days, Movers often offer their most competitive rates during those times.
I want to do some packing and moving before the movers arrive. What areas would be most helpful?
Focus on packing, instead of moving. Smaller items and moving boxes can be moved very quickly by professional movers. Don’t spend time trying to move these items yourself. Rather, focus on packing boxes, so when the movers arrive, you are 100% ready.
What can I do to ensure that my belongings end up in the correct room during the move?
Choose a simple labeling system (i.e. MBR for Master Bedroom) and make sure that all of your boxes are clearly marked. Boxes should be labeled on the top and 3 sides. Your movers will work closely with you at the destination to make sure everything ends up where you want it.
Can I leave clothing in my dresser drawers when I move?
What do I need to do to prepare my appliances for the move?
You should make certain that your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer are empty. Additionally, movers are not trained electricians or plumbers – you need to arrange for the appropriate professional to disconnect your washer, lighting/chandeliers, and refrigerator from any electric and/or water connection. Most importantly, movers are not licensed to disconnect gas, which power many dryers and ovens.
Are there any items that you can not move?
Hoosier Mover will not move hazardous or combustible items such as propane tanks, paint, and aerosols, as the temperature in the truck could cause these items to explode or ignite.
