The Importance of Communication With Your Removal Company
Communication is a very important matter when it comes down to the brass tacks of a successful removal experience. The reason is simple, when it comes down to working with a removal company you are basically the composer of a symphony and if you do not guide them they will not be able to know what top prepare for. It would be like sending them into a dark room with boxes everywhere. You will have to be the flashlight for the removal company so they will know exactly what to expect. And this will help the job to go faster and without hang-ups.
Some of the things that a removal company will need to be aware of are:
Changes in the plan:
After hiring a company to carry out certain tasks it is vital that you make them aware of any changes in the plan that is already outlined. This way they will be able to make changes in the schedule as needed, if necessary. Removal companies pretty much stay busy throughout the year, although they do have a slow season it is not a very long one and this is usually during the winter months.
Some of the changes they will need to be aware of are as follows: changes in the tasks they will need to do, such as doing packing of certain rooms or items, another is making them aware of changes in the day of the move. Another is whether they will have easy access or not to the home on the day of the removal. Sometimes unexpected changes like this take place and making the removal company that you hire aware of these kinds of changes will save time and money and allow everyone to keep the move on schedule.
Where everything is located within the home:
The removal company needs to be aware of where all of the boxes are located within the home once they arrive in order to load their trucks accordingly. If there will be mirrors or pictures involved in the move they will need to know where these items are located within the home, so they are not damaged accidently.
The moving company will need to know of any extra work that will need to be done inside the home as part of the removal as well such as the packing of certain items. They will also need to know if they will be moving appliances and if they will be, will they need to disconnect the items or will you? If they need to disconnect certain items they will need to know about this in advance, so they can make sure their trucks and movers prepared with the proper tools to do the disconnection.
If you have packed fragile items in boxes the movers need to know which boxes contain these fragile items and what type of items they are, so they can handle and stack them accordingly. Stacking and loading boxes that contain fragile items needs to be handled in a specific way in order to prevent damage to the items. So, this is very important, marking the boxes helps as well but nothing beats verbal communication.
