We can all agree that moving, whether from a small studio apartment or from a multi-bedroom country home, sucks. You need to box up your things, move heavy furniture, transport it to the new location, unload all of the stuff again, and then put it away. It’s a lot of work, even if you recruit your friends and family to help. But hiring a moving company to get your stuff moved should also be on the table, and it doesn’t have to be terribly expensive either, as long as you know what you are in for. The team at Atlanta Estate Property Movers is your cheap moving company, and we’ll help explain how that can happen.
It’s Not Your Day Off
While we would like to just turn over the keys to the movers and have them take care of everything, in reality, you should be working that day as well. You know your stuff best, and you can help to keep things moving by pointing out the items that should have extra care taken with them, what things should not have other items placed on top of them, and more. You’ll be running around as much as the movers from Atlanta Estate Property Movers are, but this only makes the move go faster and more efficiently. With your efforts on moving day, you will have cheap movers helping to load up all of your belongings.
Plan Ahead When You Can
Yes, there are moves that happen very quickly for some reason. But the majority of moves are known about in advance, often weeks or months in advance. When you know about a move upcoming, you should view this as an opportunity to slim down on your belongings. Have a garage sale of the things that you don’t want or use any longer. Post things on Facebook Marketplace. Donate things that you don’t need and don’t want to bother trying to sell. There is no need to move things that you haven’t used in a while and likely won’t use for the foreseeable future. This also helps have a cheap mover because they aren’t moving things you don’t need or use.
Prepare Ahead Of Moving Day
What does this mean? It means that you have the team from Atlanta Estate Property Movers actually move your stuff, not prepare it for moving first, then move it. If you have pictures or paintings, you will want to wrap these up yourself. You can get a roll of commercial/industrial shrink wrap to dresser drawers, tables, chairs, and other things. Have your clothes boxed up and labeled, and do the same in all of the rooms in your home. Again, cheap movers move your stuff, not prepare it for moving and then move it.
