What is a Move Coordinator?
If you’ve started planning a local move, you may have come across the term “move coordinator” in your research, but not know just what they can do for you. When you work with an expert local moving company such as MoveDay, your coordinator is a vital part of making sure your move goes well.
The move coordinator does a lot, but the most important purpose of this key player in your move is to ensure that you have a smooth, stress-free experience. Basically, this person is trained to ask all the right questions and put in the work required to ensure a smooth transition into your new home. Read on for details about this professional service.
Pre-move Instant Quote
When you’re getting to know MoveDay and considering having our team handle your local move, you’ll start out with the instant quote process. It is a quick, easy and simple process that will give you a good budget for your move. As a follow up, a representative or move coordinator may reach out to you to answer any questions they or you may have about the process, and items you’ll be moving.
The next step in your move is a pre-move survey. This survey will be conducted virtually, where you take photos and videos of your home, identifying items you’ll be moving. A move coordinator will review what you submit, and make sure you have every service you need, and get an accurate final quote. The purpose of this step is to determine the logistics of your move. Some of the details obtained during the survey will include:
- Items that need to be packed.
- Number of boxes or other containers needed.
- Items needing special handling and care such as pianos, artwork, and other high-value or fragile items.
- Location issues such as parking restrictions.
After the survey, your move coordinator may contact you to go over these details and discuss specifics such as special service options, valuation requirements, the time required for the move, and the availability of your desired dates. Often, this conversation will address items you’re particularly concerned about. Hearing your professional move coordinator’s plans for moving these items will help put you at ease so that you can focus on other things.
Moving Out of Your Current Residence
In the days leading up to your home move, your move coordinator will be available to work out any move-out details.
