Less Stress For Parents: This is a big advantage if you’re moving locally! By moving in the morning of a weekday, you can get the job done while the kids are all at school. It’s even more advantageous if you have a young child who can be at daycare while you make the move.
You may have recently noticed an increase in traffic and people on the move, as May is National Moving Month!
Hire a good honest mover. Beware of moving scams that can run anywhere from bogus “moving deposits”, to bait-and-switch estimates, to overly-complicated contracts. Estate Treasures and Services is a family-run business that is simply pay-by-the-hour. No funny business, although we like to have fun!
Be sure to ask how team members are recruited and screened, and if background checks are conducted. It’s also significant to ask what kind of training the senior living community offers, and if team member development is ongoing. Empathy and attentiveness are less tangible but equally important characteristics of a good caregiver. Does the community hire for these traits?
How Much Should I Tip My Mover? The answer to this question depends on how well your move went. Were your items handled with care? Did the movers ask you the necessary questions to be clear on what you needed done? Did they help to make your move day a little less stressful?
