6 Ways To Show Removalists You Care
Showing your removalist that you care is as simple as a smile and asking yourself – do they know I am thinking of them? If so, they are likely to extend you the same courtesy. And that is the first step in getting your job done right.
A smooth move results from everyone working together and sharing a common goal.
So, convey your requirements to the moving company, prepare well and then let the professionals execute the next steps.
Things you can do to show movers you care
Removals can be stressful, and if you want your move to go as smoothly as possible, remember these 7 ways to show removalists you care. It is true - most people are busy these days, but that does not mean you cannot make them smile.
1. Finish packing beforehand
If you plan to do packing yourself, make sure all the boxes are taped, labelled, and stacked at least a day before your moving day.
Be sure to keep your boxes organized. That way, the movers will not have to open each one, wasting time and delaying your move.
Besides, it becomes easier for the movers to load and unload when it is time to get on the truck and hit the road.
2. Be prepared for them
Many people underestimate the impact that bad lighting, a sloppy floor, and even folded-up rugs can have on their ability to navigate quickly and easily.
On the bigger picture, make sure you have parking permits if the truck cannot reach your house and access to elevators if you live in an apartment society.
Plan well in advance with some quick snacks and beverages for them as well.
3. Be there for the movers
On the final day, be there for the movers to answer their queries and get the paperwork done. If you are not available at the moment, appoint someone responsible enough to do the work on your behalf.
4. Do not shock them with more items
Probably the most important thing you can do for them is to not surprise the removalists with any sudden changes and additional bulky items on moving day. They come prepared for the set-out plan. Any instant change can mess up their routine and workflow.
5. Let the movers work in their way
Showing too much concern for your belongings can be counterproductive - resulting in a not-smooth move.
A smooth move results from good teamwork - where everyone knows when to contribute their ideas, and when to simply give way to the other teammates.
So, once you have hired a professional moving company, let them handle your move in their style.
6. Always tip the team
Why not let them know how much you appreciate the work they are doing? Especially if they do a good job!
Tip them to show respect — both for them as individuals and for the service you receive. It makes them work hard to do a good job, which benefits you both.
No one likes to pay more for services. By giving a tip, you make it clear that you care about the quality of the service and the time it takes to do the job right.
Would you take care of your movers?
Movers are your partners in the move, and hiring the right moving partner is a challenge.
They are responsible for relocating your valuable goods with utmost care. So you should look after them as human beings and not just as service providers.
