What common obstacles arise when moving at the last minute?
Whether you’re doing it for the very first time or the 10th time, moving can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. Now imagine being forced to move at the last minute or the same day. Unthinkable? It happens, and we’ve seen it on more than one occasion here in the greater Portland area. Moving requires a lot of money, planning, preparation, and time. When you have to move unpredictably, those can be major obstacles.
So when you’re facing a stressful experience like this, what commonly happens? Panic sets in, so you start rushing around trying to pack everything as quickly as you can. As a result, your concentration gets clouded and then you start forgetting to pack those important items that are costly to replace or you make mistakes. However, if you can learn from these mistakes, you’ll be better prepared to work with the same day moving team in Portland from the Handy Haulers Moving Company.
Do same day moving services cost more?
Unfortunately, in some cases they might. There are a number of reasons why you’re move can cost more besides the fact that you need last-minute or same day moving services in Portland. Our company offers some of the most competitive rates in the moving industry. However, your move may cost more for these reasons if you call us because:
- You can’t round up any family members or friends to help you at the last minute.
- You don’t have any time to get free boxes or buy your packing supplies.
- You have no time for booking your move in advance.
These are just a few of the reasons why a last minute or same day move can cost you more. The unfortunate part is that the less reputable moving companies will take full advantage of your situation and charge you a lot more for same day moving services in Portland. The Handy Haulers Moving Company isn’t one of those companies.
Are you thinking too much?
The moment you figure out that you have to move at the last minute or, best case scenario, within the next 24 hours, you’re mind goes into overdrive and you start thinking too much. Panic will do that to you. The best advice we can give you is DON’T THINK! PACK! Stop worrying about organizing things; you don’t have any time for that. It’s going to be messier than you’d like and more exhausting. If you cannot do it all alone, just give us a call and you can be sure that it is worth the money. Here is a list of our same day moving suggestions in Portland:
- Pack now; sort things later – just put things where they’ll fit. The only thing that matters is that everything gets packed safely and securely. It’s not necessary to label the contents on the box, unless those items are fragile.
- Pack your clothing as is – packing your clothes as they are saves time and boxes. Wrap hanging clothes in a garbage bag. Start from the bottom, work your way up to the hangers, pull the drawstring tight around them and leave them exposed.
- Set boxes up as they are needed – in order to have enough working room, set your boxes up you’re ready to be filled. Fill the box, tape it shut, move it out of your way, and set up the next one.
- Use clothing, socks, and towels to wrap items that are breakable and fragile – you can protect glassware and vases by wrapping them in clothing, sox, and towels. The double benefit is that your belongings will be protected and you won’t be spending any money on moving and packing supplies.
