Cape Cod Moving Companies Preparation Tips


Preparing for a move can be a daunting task, but with the right approach and organization, you can ensure a smooth transition to your new home. Here’s a detailed summary of the our Cape Cod Moving Companies top ten things to be ready for your moving company:

  1. **Sealing and Boxing Items**: Before the Cape Cod movers arrive, make sure all your belongings are properly packed and sealed in sturdy boxes. This not only protects your items during transit but also makes the loading and unloading process more efficient for the movers. Follow the container summary at the bottom of your detailed shipper inventory for recommended sizes.  Using alternate sizes is an appealing option for many, but remember that using too many small or overly large boxes can affect the accuracy of your moving company quote – please discuss with our team for recommendations/best practices
  2. **Reviewing Inventory**: Take inventory of all your belongings throughout the preparation process.  It is critical to update our Cape Cod Moving team if additional items are to be moved. Every item counts and adding a few items “here and there” can and will affect the accuracy of your moving company quote and your overall experience. To ensure nothing gets misplaced or left behind during the move, make sure to do a walk thru before we leave the loading and delivery address.
  3. **Honest Estimates**: Cape Cod Moving Companies prices every move in a simple, clear to understand manner.  In State Moves are billed hourly on an Actual Time/Travel Basis, per man/hour with fuel, materials and mileage charges listed on every quote. All Interstate Moves are a guaranteed flat rate for weight/distance. Our convenient man-hour pricing allows for staffing upgrades when weather conditions warrant and you only pay for the time that you use.
  4. **Packing Supplies**: If you need packing supplies such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap, or packing paper, Cape Cod Moving & Storage is here for all of your needs. We also offer convenient in-home delivery and removal/recycling of your folded moving boxes after the move is complete.
  5. **Scheduling ASAP**: To secure your preferred moving date and time, schedule your move as soon as possible. Given current Market conditions, we often have limited availability during the peak seasons, so booking in advance ensures you get the date that works best for you.
  6. **Labeling Boxes**: Labeling boxes with their contents and destination room makes the unpacking process much easier and faster. Use color-coded labels or a marker to clearly indicate which room each box belongs to, such as “kitchen,” “living room,” or “master bedroom.”
  7. **Disassembly and Assembly**: If you have large/oversized furniture, appliances or other items (gym equipment) that need to be disassembled for the move, make sure to communicate this with your Cape Cod moving company beforehand.

Some Beds (IKEA/Wayfair Etc) & Cabinetry can often require significant additional labor due to item weight, complexity and settling.  Gas and Water lines from major appliances must be disconnected prior to move-day.  Large Home Fitness equipment and Pool Tables will require a third party specialist to safely and efficiently service these items prior to move day.  Our office can provide references for these services, as required.

  1. **Special Handling Items**: If you have fragile or valuable items that require special handling, such as artwork, antiques, or electronics, notify your moving company in advance. Cape Cod Moving Companies sells a full line of professional-grade boxes, bubble wrap and specialty boxes for your cherished possessions.
  2. **Clear Pathways**: Clear pathways both in your current home and at your new residence to facilitate the loading and unloading process. Remove any obstacles such as furniture, rugs, or clutter to ensure the movers can easily maneuver through the space.
  3. **Communication**: Open communication with Cape Cod Moving & Storage is key to a successful move. Keep us informed of any changes to your moving plans or special requirements you may have. This helps us to be better prepared for the job and ensures a seamless experience for everyone involved.

By following these ten steps, you’ll be well-prepared for your upcoming move and can trust Cape Cod Moving & Storage to handle the process efficiently and professionally.
