It’s important to have your move planned with a high degree of precision. An unorganized move is going to be a difficult one. However, even with the best planning, there are things that can happen to delay your move. Many things can occur that cause things to get behind schedule, and that can complicate the move. There are ways of trying to prevent these delays, but sometimes there are things that come up that you didn’t expect and weren’t ready for.
Bad Weather or Traffic
When you are all set for your move, the weather might not be something that you think much about. However, weather conditions can become hazardous and this can delay your move. Whether it’s a thunderstorm, local flooding, snow, or ice, any of these can cause a delay in getting everything moved. When this happens, the movers should work with you closely to get you moved as quickly as possible once the weather subsides. If you’re supposed to be out of your residence that day, be sure to keep the proper people updated on the delays of your move and when it may be able to proceed.
Local traffic can also cause moving delays. If there’s a wreck on the road, this can lead to vehicles, including your moving truck, being delayed for quite a while. There may also be an unexpected road closure or construction that slows down traffic. There’s not much to be done about this except to stay in communication. The best way to be prepared for traffic is to try not to schedule moving times for high traffic times such as rush hour.
You Aren’t Quite Packed
Whether you’re doing your own packing or having your movers do it for you, this is a task that may take longer than it was thought. If this happens, all you can do is work as efficiently as possible. If your movers arrive while you’re still packing, have as many people as possible keep packing while the items that are already packed get moved. Even if you run out of boxes and other supplies, you can restock them and keep going to continue your move.
Before your moving day, it’s important to make sure that you have set a realistic timeline for all of the packing that needs to be done. You may want to start a few days earlier than you’d planned just to make sure that everything is done in time. It’s also a good idea to hire movers for the packing job if you don’t think you can do it all yourself or there isn’t time for it before the big day.
A Lack of Communication
One of the biggest reasons that moves get delayed is because there wasn’t good communication between you and the moving company. You need to make sure that the time and date for your move have been confirmed by the company. Make sure that you have the right time written down so that your memory of it doesn’t get fuzzy before the move. Our local movers in Radnor Township will make sure that everything is confirmed and that it’s all planned out in advance. For instance, if the movers will be the ones packing, they have to know in advance so that they have the supplies needed and the amount of time they need to get the job done.
