Moving Companies in Dubai: 8 things they expect from you!
When you hire moving companies in Dubai, they have certain expectations from you as clients. So here are 8 things that would help you accommodate your movers and make their work easier, which will indirectly benefit you too.
Leave Them to It
It is always good to keep a watchful eye on what the movers are up to, with your stuff, but don’t get to involved or demanding. They are trained professionals and it would be better if you let them do things their way. Only intervene if you see any mishandling of your goods. This will help them work at their pace and smoothly and also keep you stress free.
Pack in Advance
Be sure to be packed and ready to go on the day of packing. Start packing a week in advance, leaving only the essentials (read: every day use accessories) out and pack all the rest. If you are not packed once the movers arrive, they will need to wait, costing you more money as they wait for you. If you are packed, they just have to assess the load and quantity of boxes, make a plan of how it will be loaded on the truck and then load the truck.
Don’t Pack Valuables and Medicine
Dubai movers and Packers don’t want to be bothered about looking after your valuable belongings like Gold jewelry, cash, property files, medicines and the likes so it is better if you pack them properly and carry them yourself to your new place. In case things are misplaced, they don’t want to be accused because then things turn bad between both parties. They already have so much of your stuff to carry, it is better if you take care of such valuables yourself.
Label all the boxes
Label all the boxes as you pack them so the movers know where which box will go in the new place. If the new place is big, for example you are moving to a 3 bedroom house or condo; make sure to give your movers a tour so they know which room to place which box, just looking at the label.
Don’t Overload Big Boxes
It is convenient to load extra amount of things in big boxes, but it makes them extra heavy. This way it will make it harder for the Packing and Moving Companies, to move it for you and they might get torn or ripped in the process of loading and lifting. It is good to always divide the weight equally within boxes, even if it requires you to buy extra boxes. Nothing is more important than securing your belongings.
Empty Desks, Drawers and Chests
Make sure to empty and lock all the drawers and desks as well as chests before moving so when the movers lift it, it is not very heavy due to the load of things. Also it ensures that when the furniture is carried up or down, the drawers do not open and spill the contents if they are still filled with things.
