What is involved with an in-home estimate?
During an in-home estimate, one of our moving estimators will visit your home and estimate the weight and size of all of your belongings that you will be moving. They’ll also discuss move details such as dates, packing services, etc., and address any questions you may have. At the end of the visit, your estimator will draft a customized written estimate for your review.
When should I contact my move coordinator?
You may contact your move coordinator at any time throughout your move process. Your move coordinator can assist with delivery dates, additional moving services (packing, unpacking, cleaning services, etc.) and any questions you may have about the process. If you ever need to add or subtract items from your move or change your move date, your move coordinator can assist with updates. Keep his/her phone number handy throughout the entire move process.
My move date changed. What should I do?
Contact your move coordinator as soon as you can if your move dates have changed. He/she can process any changes to your plan and discuss updates. Keep in mind that your estimate may change depending on the dates you selected.
What packing options do you offer?
You can pack yourself, we can pack some of your belongings or we can pack everything. White Knight is here to personalize your move process and make this transition easier.
If you’re interested in our packing services, you can discuss options with your estimator during your in-home estimate. Your move coordinator can also review these services with you. White Knight offers different packing services to fit all types of moves and budgets.
Who should I inform that I am moving?
Notify family, friends and any professional organizations you are affiliated with on a regular basis. It’s also important to inform your family doctor, attorney, accountant, and school teachers/administrators (if applicable).
How do I change my address?
The post office is a good place to start. An online Change of Address form is available on the United States Postal Service website. It’s also important to change your address with your banks, credit card companies, insurance providers and magazine subscriptions.
Use the right size boxes.
Put heavy items, like books, in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones. (Large boxes packed with heavy items are a common complaint of professional movers. They not only make the job harder but also have a better chance of breaking.)
Don’t leave empty spaces in the boxes.
Fill in gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Movers often won’t move boxes that feel loosely packed or unbalanced.
Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
It will make your packing quicker and your unpacking a lot easier, too.
Label each box with the room it’s destined for and a description of its contents.
This will help you and your movers know where every box belongs in your new place. Numbering each box and keeping an inventory list in a small notebook is a good way to keep track of what you’ve packed―and to make sure you still have everything when you unpack.
If you’re moving expensive art, ask your mover about special crating.
Never wrap oil paintings in regular paper; it will stick. For pictures framed behind glass, make an X with masking tape across the glass to strengthen it and to hold it together if it shatters. Then wrap the pictures in paper or bubble wrap and put them in a frame box, with a piece of cardboard between each framed piece for protection.
As you pack your dishes, put packing paper around each one, then wrap bundles of five or six together with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat. And use plenty of bunched-up paper as padding above and below. Cups and bowls can be placed inside one another, with paper in between, and wrapped three or four in a bundle. Pack them all in dish-barrel boxes.
Consider other items that will need special treatment.
Vansant says his movers treat TVs like any other piece of furniture, wrapping them in quilted furniture pads. He points out, however, that plasma TVs require special wooden crates for shipping if you don’t have the original box and can be ruined if you lay them flat. If you’re packing yourself, double-box your TV, setting the box containing the TV into another box that you’ve padded with packing paper.
