5 Questions to Ask Before Your Move

Moving in together takes a lot of coordination. Between paperwork, browsing homes, design ideas and figuring out what you two want your shared space to look like- there’s a lot to learn. TWO MEN Tucker has a few ways to make your transition easier.

Who’s disassembling the furniture? If your family/friends are helping, remember to give them tasks not free reign over your move. They probably won’t pay to have your couch leg fixed.

Do you have enough shrink wrap? TWO MEN Tucker uses shrink wrap on all furniture before padding. Wrap and pad on all appliances and furniture comes standard with professional moving service.

How does insurance work? Liability for friends and family is given (not their stuff not their problem). A professional company should be licenced through the state of Georgia and DOT. The state of Georgia requires each moving company to offer relocation insurance. Always chose the highest deductible if using a non-reputable mover.

What are my payment options? TWO MEN Tucker takes security deposit via card to book your move and full payment on move-day. Your remaining balance on move day can be paid in cash or by card.

Who cleans up any mess tracked into my home? Our move teams use rubber carpeting to insure outside isn’t tracked inside. Our trucks are cleaned daily to insure your items won’t bring anything extra into your new home.

3 Ways to Relax During Christmas

Packing. Wrapping. Unpacking. Holiday parties. Office parties. December gets hectic, but your move doesn’t have to be we’ve got 3 ways to slow down.

  1. Have backup presents, food and helpers ready. Grab a little something extra for those surprise visitors, gift exchanges and drop-ins. Make sure to have extra food prep (homemade or catered) just in case. Surprises are for people who don’t have enough stress.
  2. Sit down. Seriously, grab a piece of the sofa or love seat and stretch out for 2 minutes. 120 seconds can do wonders for your agenda.
  3. Hire Gwinnett’s Movers Who Care before family comes over. Christmas decorations still in the attic? TWO MEN Tucker can help. Can’t reach the top shelf where the good China is stored? TWO MEN Loganville can help. Want a fast breakdown from Christmas decorations? TWO MEN Tucker can help.

Moving Yourself in Rainy Weather

Experience is the best teacher. Moving by yourself can be both frustrating and humbling. As much as our movers would love to help, sometimes it’s better to learn the hard way before calling the professionals. If you and yours choose to move without the pros, use these simple tips:

Plan on moving over the course of multiple days. If this isn’t possible, triple-check your responsibility to make sure everything runs smoothly without your full attention.

Watch the weather through several sources. If inclement weather is forecast, use extreme caution. Gwinnett and DeKalb rarely see high winds, rains or tornadoes. However, don’t risk your valuables, transportation and livelihood over moving during inclement weather. Rain can do more damage than you’d think.

 

Rain slows traffic down. We have horrible traffic on highways, interstates and sometimes back roads. Not everyone will have the same deadline as you. Have alternate load, pack and drive plans.

Expect the unexpected. Be upfront with friends, coworkers, managers and family while moving. Beginning plans (1-2 days before moving) and ending plans (when you’ll be back at work- we recommend the following workday after your finished move) are great.

Unplug. No need to post on social, group texts or work email during relocation. Fun stories to brag about can wait. If your manager or coworker sees something off, you’ll be explaining more than working once everything is settled.

Utilities overlapping happens. Your old complex/landlord/home might make you pay through the end of the calendar month. Call a month before moving to see when each service recommends your official notice. Cell phone alarms, calendar appointments- whatever it takes to switch utilities on/off is highly important.
