Moving Timeline: When Should You Book a Moving Company

Moving Timeline: When Should You Book a Moving Company

Most aspects of moving take place before the actual move. The planning process to book a moving company is crucial in ensuring a successful move. Creating a moving timeline will give structure to your process. So let’s take a look at when it’s the best time to contact or book your moving company:

CONSIDER THE TIME OF THE MOVE

If you are planning to move during the busier months of the year, it would be best to start contacting moving companies in advance so that you can secure your favourite company, like Master Movers. When moving to a new house or office space, we would suggest that you book your moving company 6-8 weeks in advance. This will give you peace of mind and by working together we can establish the perfect timeframe for an effortless move.

HAVE A LOOK AT YOUR BUDGET

If you are working on a strict budget you will have to take the time to research companies and compare quotes. Once you’ve settled on your top three options you can contact them to check their availability and assess their business practices.

Booking your moving company sooner rather than later might help you save money and secure a better deal. You will also have a wider selection to choose from. If you leave this part of the planning process until the last minute, you’ll have to take rush rates into account.

THE NUMBER OF THINGS YOU HAVE TO MOVE

Many times couples with larger families might prefer to schedule a mid-week move in order to do all the unpacking over the weekend. The size of your move will determine the time frame in which it needs to take place. Contacting moving companies ahead of time will help you determine which and how many days you have to work with.

WHERE ARE YOU MOVING TO?

Of course, the distance of the move will also influence your timeframe. If you are only moving your office to a location down the road you might not need to book a company as long in advance. Moving from one province to another will need more planning.

DO YOU HAVE SPECIAL ITEMS?

Do you have valuables and artwork that needs special care? This could also influence your time frame and the structure of your move. Master Movers simplify the process by offering a site visit as a part of the service. This allows us to assist you in the timeline and planning process and we’ll know exactly how to care for your possession during the move.

Master Movers Support the Cart Horse Protection Association

Master Movers Support the Cart Horse Protection Association

Funded by partners and sponsors like ourselves, the Cart Horse Protection Association contributes to the welfare of 270 working horses who support more than 3000 people on the Cape Flats.

The support that the Cart Horse Protection Association offer, varies and includes service provision, education and training to cart horse owners, drivers and guards.

The cart horse owners and drivers are from communities that spread across the Cape Flats and most live in informal settlements, council housing or council estates/apartments.

This community of cart horse owners face serious socio-economic struggles in the form of rampant gang violence, poverty, unemployment, substance abuse and crime.

Education levels in these areas are very low and many people in the community never completed primary school. There are high levels of illiteracy which makes it difficult to enter the formal job market.

In the areas, the culture of hand-to-mouth existence is very prevalent.

It is therefore the mission of the Cart Horse Protection Association to care for these horses as a thin, lame, sick or injured cart horse does not only pose a welfare concern but also has an extreme adverse effect on the earning capacity of the cart horse owner and operator.

The death or permanent lameness of a working cart horse due to lack of accessibility to veterinary care, could contribute to the cycle of poverty in which many live.

IN SHORT, THIS AMAZING ORGANIZATION OFFERS SUPPORT FOR:

118 Cart Horse Owners
500 Cart Horse Drivers & Guards
3000+ Community Members
270 Working Cart Horses

Upon consideration of the amazing work that they do, Master Movers quickly jumped onboard as a monthly sponsor of the organization. They are a credible NPO working in the field of animal welfare and the social investment returns are worth it for any business.

Why it’s better to hire a moving company

Why it’s better to hire a moving company

ELIMINATE THE POTENTIAL RISK OF AN INJURY:

There are many people you can talk to that can tell you a horror story about someone else’s moving experience, if not their own. Consider the fact that you’re generally going to be packing, moving, pushing and pulling heavy objects – twice! Also, certain equipment may be needed and the heavy lifting will require more than 2 people. This is where resource and time (and often also friendships) are tested. The fear of dropping a double bed on your foot, should give you more reasons to hire a moving company to do the heavy lifting for you.

YOU WON’T JEOPARDIZE ANY FRIENDSHIPS

As mentioned above, friendships will be tested. Most people hate moving as it is, nevermind doing it for someone else. The stress that comes with it is enough to make anyone have better plans for the day. Rather save them from letting you down by hiring a moving company and welcoming them to your new home for the house warming, that way, you may score a few more gifts

FREE UP YOUR TIME FOR MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES ON MOVING DAY

You’ll be surprised by all the things that need your attention on moving day, whether it’s attending to the service provider setting up your tv or the guy installing your internet cables, you’d probably prefer to get this all done in one day and you’ll need to make yourself available all-around. Moving yourself, will require you to be in 4 places at once, and the thought of all the things you could be doing while driving back and forth may drive you crazy. Movers have the right resources to get everything done, and usually in one go.

HAVE YOU GOT THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT?

If you’re not a seasoned mover, then this answer is probably no. Which will then present a huge expense should you need to go out and buy it all. But what could be worse than that? Knowing you need to carry your king size bed down 4 flights of stairs and then not having the right tool to dismantle it. This will then delay the whole process and cost you, and your friends, valuable moving time. Professional movers will size all your contents in your initial quoting stage and make sure they come prepared with the right tools, the right truck and the right amount of staff

WHO COULD YOU CLAIM FROM?

So, you’re already at risk of losing friends, imagine one of them drops your tv – who could you claim from? Most professional moving companies offer various coverage options to insure your goods against damage.

IT WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE LONG RUN

Your biggest hesitation when making use of a moving company, is generally the cost, right?

When moving yourself, it’s easy to underestimate the costs that add up during the chaos that can result in breakage, injury, or loss of items, not to mention the cost of refreshments and even dinner for all the helpers. Moving is time-consuming and not to mention all the tools and equipment that are needed, how much you could spend on petrol for a truck, and again, most importantly, whether we are insured if something goes wrong.

Why a Site Visit is Important Before Moving Your House

Why a Site Visit is Important Before Moving Your House

Moving your house is about so much more than just packing boxes and hoping for the best. We like to plan ahead and make sure that everything is in place for moving day. Part of our service is a site visit to determine all the logistical needs. Let’s take a look at why it’s so important for your moving company to invest their time in a site visit to ensure the best move.

THEY WON’T BE STRANGERS

Being able to meet with your moving company representative before the big day will put you at ease. You will know exactly who you will be dealing with and won’t feel like strangers are suddenly in control of all your valuables.

GET ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

Instead of communicating via the phone or email, you will be able to ask all your questions regarding the move in person. The moving company will also be able to ask specific questions regarding the removal or moving process.

ELIMINATE ASSUMPTIONS AND MISTAKES

When a moving company visits your residential or commercial space they will know which challenges or issues they might have to deal with on the day. This allows them to assess the risks involved in moving certain items.

UNDERSTAND THE MOVING LIMITATIONS

A site visit benefits both the client and the moving company during the moving process. There is a big difference in moving items from a ground floor building or a 13th-floor apartment. The moving company will be able to plan ahead for the removal of tricky items, or even decide which time of day would be best for the move to take place.

PROFESSIONAL MOVING CONSULTATION

Companies such as Master Movers have professional consultants to assist in the moving process. Meeting your movers beforehand will also double as a consultation, they might be able to give you advice in preparing for the move and educate you on getting moving-day ready.

MOVING DAY STRATEGY

At the end of the day, a site visit is all about creating a moving day strategy. Taking the above-mentioned into account, your moving company can now devise a strategy for on the day, to make sure the entire process runs as smoothly as possible.
