Let’s be honest. Last-minute moves can be horrendous, no matter the reason. Even if it’s something positive, like your company suddenly promotes you and you need to move all of your stuff to Denver in a week, making sure your family and your belongings are okay can be very stressful.
We also see it where someone counts on a family member or another moving company, but they don’t show up to help. For example, you’re able to book the truck, and it has to be back in two days, but your “help” isn’t very helpful.
Whatever your reason for a last-minute move, our team has been able to accommodate some of them.
We’re not saying we can guarantee we’ll be able to move you later this afternoon if you call us at 11 a.m., but if you’re flexible on the time and day, we can try to make it happen.
First, We Need Your Relevant Information for a Last-Minute Move
If you’re in need of a serious move at the last minute, we’ll need some vital information from you.
- Address You’re Moving From
- Address You’re Moving To
- Time and Day You Need to Move
The most important thing for us to know for a last-minute move is the time and day you need to move. If you can be flexible with those times, you’ll have a better chance of making this happen.
Tips to Handle a Last-Minute Move
The best thing you can do is accept the fact that you need to move unexpectedly, whatever the reason. Then, decide which move is better for you: DIY or hiring a mover. You can do both by renting a moving truck and then hiring a muscular crew to help you load or unload the truck.
Emergency situations may not be the best time to experiment with a DIY move unless you’ve done this in the past and know what has to happen for a successful outcome. Time is of the essence with a last-minute move, so you need to get things moving along quickly.
Focus on the Move
Famed Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn said, “Your focus determines your reality.” If a last-minute move has been forced upon you without warning, you need to focus your energy on that as much as you can without panicking. Once you have the right frame of mind, it’s time to spring into action.
Book Your Services
Your next step is to book your services, whether it’s renting a moving truck, hiring a moving company, or both. If your first option isn’t there, switch quickly to the next one. You may have to go through five or six truck rental places or moving companies before you land on one who can help.
Pack your items efficiently and organize them. Get boxes, packing tape, and a Sharpie marker to write on the boxes. If you have to throw things away you know you’ll never need, you have an opportunity to declutter your place. You could also donate some items that are still usable if you have time to do that.
Remember, moving companies cannot transport hazardous materials, plants, pets, perishables, and valuable items. You’ll have to do those on your own.
Remember, moving should be a spectator sport. Let us do the hard work for you!
