Be efficient with your time
Being efficient with how you are working and using your time is a vital part of getting the most out of your moving company. Many companies will charge you based on the amount of time that the job takes meaning that the faster they finish the less you will be paying. Because of this, making sure that everything runs quickly and smoothly directly translates to an increase in the value of the money you are spending as you are having the same amount of work done for less cost. This is however dependent on the pricing model of the specific company. Regardless of if it saves you money, it is still best to be efficient with your time as it will make both your life and the lives of the movers easier.
Have everything ready to be moved
Having everything that you want moved in one spot can help to speed up the moving process significantly. Doing this will mean that it is clear to the moving company what it is they are taking. This will also mean that they will not have to gather everything themselves saving time. When you do this, you will preferably want everything to be in a location that is as close to where an access point for the movers as possible. This will reduce the distance that they will need to carry things to get them to the moving truck. Not only will doing this speed up the move, your movers will appreciate that you are making their job easier.
Know where you want things
Knowing where you will want things is vital to making sure that you get as much as possible out of your moving company. By doing this, you can ensure that the movers are able to move things straight to where they need to go. This will reduce the amount of potential downtime in between them unloading an item and it being put in the correct place. If you don't know where you want something, the movers may have to leave it somewhere for you to move when you do know. This means that you will be doing work that you do not need to be doing, meaning that you will be getting less value out of the money you are paying for the movers. At the end of the day, it is your responsibility to be organised so that this isn't an issue and you can maximise value.
