-If a customer has a lot of boxes (example 70 boxes), it is useful to take 3 movers to speed up the work.
– A faster move can also save you money.
-The best way to save is to be well prepared.
-First, everything must be properly packed before the arrival of the movers.
-Do not overload boxes or bins to prevent them from breaking.
– Furniture and appliances must all be emptied beforehand.
Even the glass drawers and shelves in the refrigerator must be removed first.
-Boxes and bags must not obstruct the passage.
-Consider that movers need to take the large pieces first to make the most of the space in the truck. Thus, the boxes should not make a big pile in front of the front door.
-A good tip to save time is to make sure that the movers will have parking nearby or right in front of your home. This can represent 2 to 3 parking spaces.
