The initial moving quotes are limited to a certain start-end period in the day. And later, the transportation and labor costs are charged by the hour apart from the distance, so making the truck wait could prove expensive while wasting your time as well. Not all moving companies are same so it’s in your interest to ask your mover for details on how they would like you to manage the entire process.

A quick start

A lot of people misjudge the amount of time that it could take to fulfil the process prerequisites which eventually forces them to rush through things by the end of the actual move date. If you do not find enough time to prepare, or you are denied the pre-orientation service by the Movers and Packers, coming to MovingNow.in becomes your natural choice since our moving services come with pre-determined process for the movers to make your move stress free.

Right sized carton box

Making use of the right sized carton boxes will make your move simpler and can actually speed things up. Each of these boxes has a particular CFT (Cubic Feet) calculation that helps us determine the space usage on the truck. Having differently sized boxes can make the loading difficult and also time consuming.

Labeling boxes

Tag your boxes well with the right labels and earmark the location where they belong, for eg. Bedroom, Kitchen etc. Also prepare an Essentials box for emergency. This simple exercise will save you time and energy to locate the boxes post move.

Labelling rooms

You may not be fully aware of your new home instantly. So placing labels on each of the doors in your new home will prove beneficial for quick identification. These tags would also associate to the location marked on the each of the boxes. Although this may look like a lot of work, it actually does not take much time to do and also avoids you from needing to be present to guide the movers as they unload the truck.

Importance of wardrobes/cabinets

Most Packers and Movers on MovingNow platform will allow you to leave your clothes and accessories in the wardrobes. The movers would cover up the cabinets neatly with corrugated sheets covering it with the film wrap for transportation by the truck. You are advised to remove your valuables and fragile items that could get damaged in such kind of universal packing. You may need specialized packing for such items which we guide you appropriately during the process.

Checklist preparation

As stated above, not all moving companies retain similar processes and might want you to prepare in a different ways best suited to their operations. Standard practice at MovingNow is to provide a checklist to all movers on its platform that is also shared with you to avoid any deviation in such standard practices by the movers.

Bedding as cushions

Your bedding or cotton mattress can also double up as cushion for resistance for your fragile goods and expensive furniture during the entire transit time. Keep some pillows and sheets handy to make up for extra absorption for transit shocks. Such steps will help prevent possible damages due to unanticipated tardy packing.

Dismantling of furniture

This is a solution that all moving companies will certainly provide engaging specialized staff and you are advised not to do it by yourself should you need to save some money. You might end up damaging some of the material in the process. While Standard moving package with MovingNow offers dismantling and rearranging of your furniture as a policy, we also assemble the units that we were not a part of, that most of the transporters refuse to set up the furniture that they did not take a part in dismantling.

Electronic equipment

Electronic goods like LED television, refrigerator, washing machine are vulnerable during transit and also expensive. If you still retain the initial packaging boxes that are supplied with a new piece, we recommend you pack it with the same since they come with the right cut thermocol for padding. However, do not stress if you don’t have the specific packing, simply make sure to make your mover uses enough padding in the box and would also classify them well. Likewise, do not forget to take pictures of the cables while they were installed so you understand the right way to hook the electronic back at your new house.
