Boxes are one thing, but when you get to the big, heavy stuff, it’s important to let your movers know what to expect. It is imperative to communicate with your moving company and explain any and all requirements/expectations prior to choosing your movers. They need to be aware of all details, minor and major, to properly estimate your total move time and cost; and to also ensure the proper equipment is available. That includes informing the company about any overweight items (i.e. a piano or fridge), access restrictions (small elevator, walk-up only, narrow driveway) and whether you’ll need help with disassembly or assembly of furniture.
